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

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
June 30, 2021
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 24, 2021

February 22, 2021

February 18, 2021
Melissa was a real nice lady.
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.
January 18, 2021
I just had a blood draw for a CBC, and am waiting anxiously for the results. Everyone acted very kind and professionally, but I wonder why I have to give so much personal information every time I walk in the front door. Just curious. Dr. Sayers and Becky and all the nurses take such good care of me!!
January 11, 2021
She listened and cared! I also get treated at a pain clinic and I very much appreciated she didn't scold me or try to interfere with that treatment. She focused on the reason I was there to see her.
December 16, 2020
I had a wonderful experience going to Melissa last week, covid and everything I felt very safe and secure. Everything was great. Melissa's nurse was amazing. I just like coming there. Thank you very much. Goodbye.
December 14, 2020
Melissa Tompkins was very patient with me and answered many questions I had and I didn't feel rushed at all. Her assisting nurse was very nice as well.
December 09, 2020
Melissa Tompkins is fantastic. Very personable, knowledgeable and take time to discuss issues and solutions. I will highly recommend her to others.
December 08, 2020
This was my first visit with my new PCP, and it was a great experience! My provider made me feel comfortable and confident with my care choice!
December 08, 2020
A few of my answers (like yes,somewhat) I said that because it was the 1st time I had seen her. She did a great job
December 07, 2020
It took longer than I expected to get checked in. There were 2 receptionists at the desk and I spent about 5 - 7 minutes getting checked in. There were multiple interruptions with phone calls and other employees asking questions during my check in time. The receptionist was having a difficult time trying to figure out my insurance card. I've been to this facility in the past and my insurance provider is the same now as it was on my last visit. Therefore I don't understand the difficulty in finding out who my insurance company was. I hope that this is just a one time instance and she was able to get the insurance provider confirmed.
November 23, 2020
I have seen Melissa Tompkins for years and am happy I get to continue care with her. I always feel so taken care of and listened to during appointments with her. She is incredibly personal and remembers her patients well. Her nurse, Kelley, is also wonderful and it was a pleasure to meet her. The overall experience was very welcoming - including setting foot through the door of the office. Highly recommend this office!
November 17, 2020
I loved that she was helpful with my questions, when I asked about a concern of mine she explained why she wasn't concerned in detail and gave me tips to watch for. Instead of just telling me it wasn't a concern and moving on, like our last provider did.
November 13, 2020
The whole staff were welcoming and helpful it was a great experience and I look forward to my continuing visits
November 10, 2020
She set me up for x-rays down in Radiology on the first floor and told me to go right down and I would get in and do the x-rays and then I'd be done. However, when I got down there he they didn't have they weren't able to take me as a walk in and they could not schedule me because she had not heard it correctly somehow so I had to leave without doing the x-rays and I still have not done that part yet because I have not been able to take off work again to go back and get the x-rays.
November 05, 2020
This was an annual physical, and I was disappointed when the doctor didn't show up. The PA was fine in a pinch, but I was definitely not there to see her.
November 05, 2020
Melissa is geeat! That's why I came back to her after she moved to Bryan.
November 02, 2020
The receptionists at the front desk seemed unprofessional. They were gossiping about patients while there were patients sitting in the waiting area. Also they had a patient fill out new patient paperwork even though he wasn't a new patient which made him late for his appointment and then they told him he was too late for his appointment so he was upset and ripped up the paperwork and left. If they had just looked in the system they could see he was not a new patient.
October 20, 2020
Covered my health in detail - very thorough!
October 20, 2020
The nurse and doctor were great. I will continue to go to them for all my care.
October 19, 2020
It was great. Tanya from lab was the best at drawing blood.
October 13, 2020
Melissa is a very great and respectful listener. I felt comfortable speaking to her about my situation and she answered my questions truthfully.
October 12, 2020
Check in was easy and the staff were very helpful. Wait time was normal. Will recommend to all my family and friends.
October 07, 2020
She was very nice & friendly to talk to, and I didn't feel rushed during my appointment.
October 06, 2020
I've been seeing Dr. Melissa T. for years, and when I heard she started working in Lincoln, I decided to start going to the doctor in Lincoln. It's worth the drive-she is great, and I feel comfortable with her.
September 29, 2020
Thank you for the great care!
September 29, 2020
