    I needed a total knee replacement Oak offered a free seminar informational at a Riverside facility I attended. This introduced me to the Oak staff doctors for the surgery I needed. I choose Dr. Michalow and set up an appointment to discuss my knee problems. X-Rays were taken for evaluation, recommendations for corrective surgery were provided and all my apprehensive questions were answered by Dr. Michalow. I would recommend anyone seeking total knee replacement to confer with Dr. Michalow.

    It was very good. This visit was a follow up to shoulder surgery to remove bone spurs on my right shouder. I was very satisfied with the previous operation on the left shoulder perforned by Dr. Michalow several yers ago and and that is why I returned to him for the surgery on my right shoulder. .I am grateful for his skill in restoring my full use and full ange of motion in both shoulders.

    He is the absolute best. He listened closely to my problem and discussed all my options. The surgeries have both been successful. He has replaced my left hip and repaired my right rotator cuff so far. I plan to stay with him for any future surgeries. I have already recommended him to family and co-workers.

    We really liked that he was very upfront with our daughter in what was wrong and how he would go about fixing the injury and the length of recovery.
