My Approach to Care

Growing up, I always wanted to be in medicine. I find it very rewarding to help others and have a passion for providing high quality, compassionate health care to my patients. Communication is key, which is why I focus on being an active listener to truly understand your situation and needs.

I strive to build a lasting relationship with my patients and provide the most up-to-date care in a thorough and professional manner. I believe in education and empowering my patients to be involved in their health care. This includes ensuring patients understand their medical condition, know the steps to stay healthy and are involved in decision making. I pride myself on having the kind of relationship where we can discuss anything.

I treat every patient as if they were my own family – whether that is helping them remain healthy or treating health problems and illnesses. I help people because I CARE and look forward to providing that for you and your family.

My special interests include:

  • Pediatrics and women's health – I love that it is multigenerational and includes continuity of care from beginning to end of life
  • Comprehensive health consultations to determine the overall health condition of my patients
  • Preventative care – I believe strongly in this and enjoy helping people maintain a healthy lifestyle, providing wellness physicals, and taking the time to visit with each patient
  • Medical procedures including joint injections, wound care, fracture and laceration care, toenail removal, lesion removal and IUD placement
  • Medical examinations for DOT and CDL as a certified medical examiner on the FMCSA registry

I perform examinations, diagnose and treat health conditions, order and interpret test results, develop and manage treatment plans, and prescribe medications for all of your health care needs.

I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I obtained a bachelor's degree in biology and psychology. I earned my master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies in 2000 from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Before joining Family Medicine of Lincoln, I practiced in a rural family practice clinic and hospital. 

Patient Reviews

My provider is very thoughtful and listens intently. She gives my all of her attention with my questions and concerns. She gives me suggestions with follow-up on issues that I may be experiencing. I would recommend her to anyone.
August 08, 2022
My family loves Melissa Tompkins and staff. We were comfortable and they were down to earth.
August 03, 2022
I like that I got in in a timely matter, fast. It was really fast that I got in and she paid really close attention to me and she answered all of my questions and she acted like she cared about anything I had to say and it was a really good experience. Thank you.
August 01, 2022
Everything is far from perfect but my first visit at Bryan Health was perfect, i believe. The receptionist, the nurse, the doctor are well-trained personnels. They are helpul, nice and knowledgeable. It reminded me the time we were in VN, a communist country. How terrible it was! It was completely different from what we had here. Thanks to all of the staff. Good health!
July 26, 2022
Have a VERY good feeling about my new provider! Woohoo!
July 20, 2022
This was my first visit.
July 19, 2022
Melissa Tompkins is the best health provider I've ever had. I only come in about once maybe twice a year and she so personable, nice, remembers things about me and just a highly intelligent individual that listens and puts you at ease by explaining things as non intimidating as possible. My other Bryan health experiences have not been amazing but Melissa is definitely one of the main reasons I keep coming back and trust Bryan Health with my care.
July 07, 2022
Fully trust and respect my provider & staff
June 29, 2022
She listened to my multiple health problems.
June 28, 2022
She took the time to really get to the bottom of my problem.
June 28, 2022
Very friendly and down to earth! I felt comfortable with Melissa and shes a genuine all the way! Will be referring people to her most definetly! My girls also like her and they were nervous about switching to a different provider but after their visit with Melissa they are glad we switched to her!
June 22, 2022
My provider was excellent. However, the staff was awful trying to get my provider's lab orders to the right place at my local hospital. I had to call the lab 5 times to see if they had received the orders. The 1st 2 times the orders were sent, they went a stand-alone, retail pharmacy in our town. The 3rd time, they were sent to the fax listed on the hospital's website, which was their business office. On the 4th call to the lab, I finally got THEIR fax number and gave it to the provider's office. The lab finally got the orders. I don't want this to hurt my provider's quality of service but I want to make darn sure that the office knows how very unhappy I am by their ineptness!
June 14, 2022
Brianna and doctor Melissa is very wonderful and nice lady. The lady Bethany is very helpful too. Thanks to all the staff
June 13, 2022
She was fabulous, asking questions, giving me info. Very caring person.
June 09, 2022
I'm very happy with the care they give me.
June 08, 2022
End of the day...felt rushed thru the visit. Didn't even check my nose to see if that may be part of the trouble. Felt the appointment was a waste of time and money. Still have the instruction given
May 24, 2022
Over all a good experience.
May 16, 2022
I was asked to come at 1:00 pm for a 1:30 appointment and only had to show receptionist my card and driver's license so I sat for over 30 minutes waiting for my appointment. Once I got in the room, I still had to wait for a long time. This was my first visit to this practice. Once the waiting was done, my visit went very well. Everyone was super nice and answered questions.
May 13, 2022
She did very good. Everything was 10 and are are the one her name was Melissa, and she did a good job. We understood everything. And she was very confident. Thank you.
May 12, 2022
Family medicine at Lincoln my care team have taken excellent care of me. Now Bryan hospitals. Not so much. Nursing staffs have been great except one or 2 odd ones out. But To get you your home medications on time I usually take my medications at 6 o'clock in the morning and my Painmeds. It's almost 10 o'clock still haven't received my regular home meds Or my pain Management meds including no blood pressure meds which is one problem I'm in for.
May 03, 2022
Melissa really listened to what I had to say and I felt like I was taken seriously. Something other providers have not done. Even when I went off on a tangent, she followed me and made me feel like she cared.
April 28, 2022
S this was an extremely thorough and professional first visit and examination. Ms Tompkins took her time, I was not rushed in any way, I really felt that Nothing was left out of the necessary information regarding past history, medications, surgeries and my overall well being. I really enjoyed meeting Ms Tompkins and her very capable staff. Thank you for caring!!
April 20, 2022
Appreciate the friendly atmosphere with staff
April 18, 2022
The doctor was professional and attentive to my issues.
April 13, 2022
Positive experience!
April 12, 2022
I was not seen promptly but it can happen that way with office visits
April 04, 2022
I thought Mrs. Tompkins did a great job of listening. She answered all of my questions and she had a nurse practitioner with her that it was also very attentive and I appreciate her taking her time. The only reason I'm sure that she was running behind us that the office did a great job of sitting me in last minute. So I appreciated that as well.
April 04, 2022
Melissa is a very good physician, I like her a lot. She answers all my questions and she listens to me very, very good. I couldn't ask for a better physician.
April 01, 2022
Everyone was friendly and professional!
March 30, 2022
Dr Tompkins spent so much time with me on my first visit. I did not feel rushed and she listened to me. Most thorough appointment I've had in a long time by a family provider.
March 23, 2022
Very friendly, attentive to my concerns and needs
March 16, 2022
My doctor was out of the office for a couple of days and was disappointed when front desk suggested an appointment 8 days in the future for an ear issue. I was the one to pursue asking if there was APA or nurse practitioner available and was able to see when the very next day. Perhaps front desk attendant should be trained more on suggesting alternative appointments.
March 14, 2022
I love family medicine of Lincoln on 40th and Pine Lake there the best they treat you with respect ! And the receptionist are very friendly and welcome you as you walk in the door and they know you by name . Dr. Sayer's is my primary doctor since 2003 and I've seen Melissa Tompkins couple times. I've pretty much have seen everyone there and I always get the best quality medical care I need .
March 07, 2022
Very pleasant and professional visit Thank You
March 04, 2022
The receptionist was welcoming and answered my questions. My PA, her nurse and the nurse completing her rotation were amazing. They took their time to listen and understand my past medical history, answered my questions and explained everything in detail. I had a thorough exam that was not rushed. This was one of the best medical experiences I have had. Thank you so much!
February 16, 2022
I haven't seen her that many times but every time I go in and she remembers almost all of my medical issues without having to look through the computer.
February 01, 2022
She's great! Really seems to know her stuff.
February 01, 2022
Melissa Tompkins is AMAZING!! She makes me feel like she actually cares about me and her other patients. She listens, is thorough and explains things so I understand. I know she runs a little behind in her schedule sometimes, but I expect it and am completely ok with it because I know she will not rush in and rush out on me, either. The fact that I know she is giving everyone the best care she can makes me have trust in her and Bryan Health. She is the best!!!
January 31, 2022
Melissa is great! She always seems to listen and respond to what you say. Her answers never are above your head and always are explained in a manner that you know what to expect.
January 31, 2022
Melissa LISTENS!! She works to find the right answers for me. She has another path if something doesn't work. I TRUST HER!!
January 25, 2022
I couldn't be more pleased or excited to have such a caring and thorough health care provider. Definitely gives me peace of mind knowing that in time of need, I'm confident I'll receive the appropriate treatment.
January 19, 2022
Dr. Melissa Thomkins is an incredible communicator and very capable. Her listening skills are some of the best. The Bryan Physicians network is well organized. I've had two primary doctors in the last 50 years and left only because they passed away. I lost out on excellent medical care because I didn't know about the professionalism of the Bryan Physicians network, Dr. Dresbach, and now Dr. Melissa Thomkins. I am very impressed!
January 12, 2022
January 10, 2022
I have received outstanding care from every member of the team. Thank you for everything you do.
January 07, 2022
Reception ladies was nice and friendly! Nurses were professional and friendly! Melissa was very thorough, friendly and knowledgeable of my past and current health issues which means a lot to me!!
January 05, 2022
Running over 1/2 hr late w/o an status update is a bit too much. Otherwise a very good visit.
January 04, 2022
Melissa was amazing. She seemed to think of everything important to do for a pre-op and even for a yearly physical. This was the first time seeing her but she is very detailed and I was totally impressed with her thoroughness. I'd be more than happy to see her again as she reminded me of physicians I'd gone to long ago due to her listening and attention to detail skills. Her answers to questions or concerns was very professional. Definitely a top 10 score without doubt.
January 04, 2022
Melissa Tompkins and her staff are professional and experts in their field. I greatly respect her and I feel she has my best interest at heart.
January 03, 2022
I'm always pleased with Melissa, she takes the time to listen and discuss my situation.
December 31, 2021
I think Melissa Tompkins is an excellent provider. I would recommend her to anyone. I appreciate the way she has any time we seen her. She has a listened to my kids and focus directly on them and what they had to say. Kind of leaving me out, which was exactly what needs to be done. I appreciate your hard work. And yes, I would definitely be happy to visit her again.
December 28, 2021
I actually enjoy visiting with my provider. She listens to me and asks me questions may it be personal or professional.
December 28, 2021
Great first visit! Melissa took a lot of time with me and I never felt rushed. She was professional and made me feel very comfortable.
December 27, 2021
She is very friendly and knowledgeable. She is easy to communicate with and understands my needs.
December 13, 2021
She's very awesome. She listens to everything I ask and she listens to my suggestions and she listens to everything. I ask her and and and she fits to my schedule needs. I have I have had no complaints what so ever She's been the best PA I've ever had. I cannot go wrong with her. I do not want to lose her. So Melissa Tompkins is the best and I give her 10 across the board. So she deserves a raise, she's been the best and don't lose her cause she's the best and I'll keep going to her and
December 08, 2021
I am so grateful that Melissa listens to me and trusts I know how I am feeling.
December 07, 2021
Melissa is the best doctor that I've had she listens to what I say, and she always has answers for me.
December 02, 2021
Melissa does an excellent job of answering my questions and providing me good feedback!
November 24, 2021
We cannot say enough good things about Melissa Tompkins. She always takes time to listen and talks directly to my children rather than skipping over them and talking to only the parent. Both of my children have indicated that she is the best provider we have ever had.
November 19, 2021
Happy with service
November 12, 2021
Very nice and respectful. I had a bad experience that led to needing to go to the doctor for this visit, and I appreciated her taking the time to talk to me about it even though I'm sure that put things behind schedule.
November 12, 2021
Very friendly and helpful!
November 10, 2021
Melissa Tompkins takes all the time we need to figure out what is the best course of action. She even worked my husband in yesterday even though she was working under a tight schedule. This was much appreciated because he had suffered a fall and we were concerned.
November 03, 2021
Waiting in parking lot for 30+ minutes is not appropriate even if I'm retired.
November 01, 2021
Melissa Tompkins is very knowledgeable. She is a good listener which helps her give very good care. She is also very upbeat which makes an office visit a positive experience.
October 27, 2021
Overall, it was a great visit
October 22, 2021
It was a busy Friday afternoon & I was probably the last appointment as I was "squeezed" in to accommodate a necessary pre-op. The front desk was personable & friendly for check in. One never knows what can happen in the day of a medical office that can make the schedule fall behind so I do not expect quick response in late afternoon as I might in the morning.
October 13, 2021
Really enjoyed my visit with Melissa. She was very attentive to all of my concerns and proactively assisted with navigating next steps in further treatment options.
October 07, 2021
Melissa is a very good provider. She knows exactly what she's doing at all times and I like her very much. Thank you.
October 06, 2021
When I started the survey, I had done a survey earlier where one was really good and 10 was really bad. So on the very first question is one, that should have been a ten. Thank you bye.
October 01, 2021
I'm so grateful to get such a kind & happy Provider. She must be aware of my panic attacks as we spoke on the scariest topics for me, she was like my other Dr's as she kept things upbeat & positive, keeping me feeling very safe with her. I really hope that she is planning on staying here, as I have a major panic issue easily set off. Thank You Melissa ??
September 28, 2021
waiting time was longer than usual
September 15, 2021
Thank you all for your care
September 13, 2021
Melissa Tompkins is always friendly, listens, and offers good advice.
September 13, 2021
It was very professional!
September 07, 2021
Yeah, Melissa L. Tompkins was a really good doctor. I've really enjoyed the visit and she made me feel really comfortable and happy when I was leaving as far as knowing that I was really taken care of. Alright. Thank you.
September 07, 2021
Great provider, I would see her for any medical concern!!!!
August 25, 2021
I am a new patient and I am happy to have chosen this practice for my health.
