Have you seen Dr. Michelle Bochert?
November 18th, 2015Epiploic Appendagitis
I was given a diagnosis at the time I was there. Told to go home and take Ibuprofen or aleve for the pain. I called back the next day because the pain was worse and they would not let me speak to the nurse that I saw or the MD. I was told that I would have to leave again, return to the ER or go see another physician and that there was nothing that they could do for me. Complete waste of money, time and energy. I am still in pain and there is nothing they will do for me.

Dr. Bochert told me that I had a mass most suggestive of ovarian cancer. She then said she would be right back. She never came back! An ultrasound tech came in who (obviously) couldn't answer any questions. It was 7PM on a Friday night. I was sent home alone with no opportunity to ask questions and no other MD available until Monday. One of the worst experiences I've ever had.

My daughter was in a motor vehicle accident. She is a minor and was agitated after the accident. She was seeing a therapist at the U of M, had an appointment that morning, but was prevented from leaving the ER. She was told she needed to wait in the ER all night to be "assessed" by a Fairview social worker. She and I argued about this. I had been told that my daughter would be committed on a 72 hour hold if she didn't agree to the assessment. She was then placed in psychiatric seclusion by Dr. Bochert without my knowledge or approval because she was "agitated", i.e., refusing the referral. She was not released until two hours after the social worker she was waiting to see "assessed" her as not being a threat to herself or others. Dr. Bochert prevented me from seeing my daughter and did not tell me she was locked up. Several laws and many hospital policies were violated in this process. Dr. Bochert may have a great bedside manner, but she is not knowledgeable or competent in the care of adolescents. I also think that she was more concerned with another Fairview provider getting the referral than she was with the trauma caused to my daughter by being secluded to ensure her cooperation. I will be filing a complaint with the Medical Board about this physician and I would caution anyone reading this to not use the Fairview Southdale Emergency room if you can avoid it.

July 13th, 2011Absolutely the best
I saw Dr. Bochert in the ER last weekend. I was feeling absolutely terrible. Dr. Bochert had excellent bedside manner and made be feel comfortable when I was pretty much feeling my worst. If she ever sees this- please know that I appreciated how kind and caring you were in such a stressful situation. Thank you a million times!!
