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

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.

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.

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
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.

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

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 ??

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

August 25, 2021
I am a new patient and I am happy to have chosen this practice for my health.
August 18, 2021
Melissa and her CMA took great care of me and worked diligently to get me out of my appt in time for another visit I had to be to. Thankful for their kindness and grace!
August 17, 2021
I just got home from the hospital, and pretty impressed with the people that I dealt with. And looking forward to seeing Melissa. Aright, thanks.
August 12, 2021
My daughter absolutely adores Melissa. I've never had a bad experience in this office and recommend them to anyone looking for a pcp
August 11, 2021
Despite having to wait about 40 minutes past my original appointment time, which was handled courteously by the staff, I had a great appointment. I was listened to and had multiple concerns addressed. Also - Melissa seemed invested in my quality of life by suggesting x-rays even though they might just confirm a wrist sprain rather than any fractures.
August 04, 2021
Great staff! Never felt rushed. Was pleased that the Dr spent way more than 15 minutes with me and sent me on my way. Really listened!
August 03, 2021
Initial visit with this provider. Very good communication.
July 28, 2021
Good provider.
July 08, 2021
I usually don't expect too much from a P.A. but this one went above and beyond my expectations.
July 08, 2021
I was very happy with what I came in for, she took care of and it was very happy. Thank you Melissa.
July 06, 2021
Very professional

Very knowledgeable, efficient, and I felt very secure - this was my first visit!
June 09, 2021
Any time I have seen this provider they have been helpful!
June 02, 2021
My best health care provider.
April 23, 2021
I was in the waiting room for an hour. That's why I do not like.
April 21, 2021
I was VERY disappointed...made several suggestions that were just ignored...told her the pills she increased were not helpful at all...she increased them anyway...was in terrible pain and it took 3 days to get in and can never see my provider!!! Will probably be switching offices!!! Was a waste of time and money!!!
April 20, 2021
I felt like they spent an adequate amount of time with me. All staff that I came in contact with were very nice.
April 19, 2021
The PA was EXTREMELY personal n thorough. My first visit. She took her time with me. I've never had a Dr. take so much time with me. She was very caring and listened. I'll be referring other family members to her. She was EXCELLENT!
April 13, 2021
Waited a very long time
April 12, 2021
Hi, so I guess the way you guys could come and crew is more expedient prescriptions been sent out because if my case it was the day after in the afternoon and I had been to the pharmacy 2 times prior to that. So or just a little bit more like communication on when the prescription will be sent out or not, but
April 06, 2021
I would like to see Amanda Fitzgerald one of the times when I come in. I always get a PA.
April 06, 2021
The person that draws blood is awesome also.
March 19, 2021
Great personality!!
March 15, 2021
I appreciated being squeezed in to the appointment. But soon after the episode that I experienced, I did have to wait a while in the doctor's office, but that's okay, I understand because I was squeezed in and I appreciated that. Thank you.
March 05, 2021
Not rushed. Good experience.

February 10, 2021
The staff at Family Medicine of Lincoln is excellent. Whether it's when you call in for an appointment, whether you call in to leave a message for the nurse or any other matter. The nursing staff and the doctors are professional they take their time to talk with you etc. Dr. Dresbach is absolutely excellent and I've recommended him to my family and friends.
January 28, 2021
I felt listened to, concerns were addressed. We made a plan for moving forward.
January 22, 2021
Melissa is one of the best doctors around, because she not only listens to the patients, but she also offers like some insightful information or even like education that helps you better understand what's possibly going on with your life. And she's not so quick to over-diagnosis you. And she never wants to move fast than the patient's comfortable with, and that's extremely helpful.
January 22, 2021
She was awesome! She took time to answer My questions!
January 22, 2021
The staff were friendly and helpful for a new patient experience.
