I was referred to Dr. Michael by my optometrist. I went to see him for a cataract evaluation. The wait time to see him was extremely long. When he finally comes into the exam room his manner is loud and obnoxious. He gives me a brief exam and announces that I am a candidate for surgery. I ask him a several questions to which he replied in a dismissive condescending way. He answered none of my questions. I never went back. Who needs a rude and flippant MD?

Dr. Michael?s is full of crap. I waited over 2 hours for an eye exam & instead of tending to his patients; he was in the hallway cracking jokes w/ his colleagues. He was very short w/ me, ignored my concerns & medical records & tried to lead me to believe my problem was a simple fix when other doctors, including some in that very same office had previously told me was not going to work.

I first saw Dr. Michael about 18 years ago for Glaucoma and he has been treating me ever since. My Glaucoma is stable and I avoided a possible surgery that another doctor had recommended. Dr. Michael also performed my cataract surgery and it went very well. I would no hesitate recommending Dr. Michael to anyone

I was referred to Dr. Michael by my optometrist for an urgent eye status and was apprehensive. I was seen that same day and reassured that my problem could be treated conservatively. I was impressed by Dr. Michael's skill in ophthalmology and in comforting me in discussing my concerns. This is a very busy practice but I always feel that my questions are answered.As a retired RN, I prefer a physician who can be friendly but serious at the same time. I found Dr. Michael to be both.
