Dr Michelson writes prescriptions well and has told me, with Bipolar Disorder, to pick myself up by the bootstraps and that I have a great life. I chose another psychiatrist and needed my records sent. The office sent 1 page of history of an 11 year relationship.????????

I have seen Dr. Michelson on and off for a couple years and recommend him highly. I’ve had a very good experience with him getting help managing depression/anxiety symptoms and the related medication management. I’ve tried other psychiatrists and never had a positive experience until I went to Dr. Michelson. The office staff is also very friendly and helpful which makes the experience that much better. Thanks for making my life more enjoyable!

Several years ago, I lost my teenage son to a car accident. Needless to say, I fell experienced a period of hopeless depression. Eventually, I learned to accept my loss and recovered from grief. Although there were many factors leading to my recovery, DR. Michelson's was an integral part of it. He also treated me for Adult ADHD , I always suspected I suffered from ADHD but never sought help. Today, my life is productive in a manner I never imagined. Dr.Michelson's staff i second to none!
