Biography

Dr. Borgstrom enjoys caring for patients of all ages and working in partnership with them to improve their health.

Her special interests as a provider include women’s health, maternal-child health and global health.

She is looking forward to living in the Pacific Northwest after spending so much time on the East Coast. Outside of work, Dr. Borgstrom enjoys spending time with her family, including her rescue Border Collie and her still-a-bit feral cat.

    Time was short due to us needing to leave for other commitments since the appointment started 30 minutes late. I liked the doctor, but having not met her before, it wasn't a great first impression.

    I won't recommend Dr. Borgstrom to others because she said she is not taking any new patients who are not family members of patients she is already seeing

    We love this doctor! We especially appreciated the "house call" that she made to visit my mother earlier in June.

    I had never seen her before and she was wonderful. Thanks so much!

    Dr Borgstrom was assigned to me and wasn't my first choice. Together with her team I feel confident that I will be well taken care of.

    She explained she was prescribing a medication, checked with me to ensure I wasn't allergic, but didn't really ask about how sensitive I might be to the effects of the med. It was a PRN, and suggested I take two at night, which I did, which turned out to be way too much for me. Sometimes there is an assumption that, because of my height/weight, I can handle high doses of meds, which isn't really true.

    Dr. Borgstrom is very thorough, takes plenty of time to discuss and explain, and always makes sure I understand the information.

    only provided additional suggestions several days later because I inquired. was going to provide some exercises for tendinitis but didn't do it

    I have recommended her to others. This is a new provider for both me and my my husband. She was highly recommended by JoAnna Warren who was our previous PCP. I look forward to a long relationship with Britt as our family physician!

    jumped the gun a bit with treatment that might be unnecessary due to my condition. Especially when I have a follow up a appt in 2 weeks to find out which route I would take.

    Dr Borgstrom is a wonderful doctor. The best I've ever had.
