I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mikaelian. He embodies both the science of medicine and the art of medicine. I had vertigo. Dr. Mikaelian zeroed right in on edema from a high-salt cheeseburger and flying afterward. He treated the vertigo and I felt better in a few days. He referred me to an internist to uncover the reason for the edema - life-long food sensitivities which has now caused leaky gut syndrome. My overall health has greatly improved, including my migraines, all because of Dr. Mikaelian!

I have been a patient of Dr. Mikaelian for 11 years. I went to see him the other day for a minor issue. What I love about him is he cares, he explains things so thoroughly and he also has an awesom bedside manor. I am not one to refer doctors unkess I truly believe in them. I can not tell you how many people I have referred to him over the years, all I know is I always get a thank you from the person(s) I refered.

I believe Dr Mikaelian is an ok doc but when he puts you on a medication regimen, is gone when you need a refill, staff unable to order a refill, on-call doc only available for "emergencies", and the only recommendation is to go to a different doc - I'd say the doc doesn't care enough about his patients. Don't forget to bring $35 to pull your records and fax/hand you 3 pgs for your new physician. Good doc or no - this attention to detail and business practice is incompetent. No recommendation.

Saw Dr. Mikaelian today based on these reviews, so glad I did. Appointment was great start to finish. Front office staff were friendly and helpful. I was taken into an exam room right away and he was in within minutes. He was so polite and yet very professional, took the time to explain exactly what he was going to do, even taking out a diagram and showing me. During the proceedure he told me what he was doing and how it might feel. He was gentle and patient. He gave me great med advice too!

It's VERY disappointing to see rave reviews about a Dr. only to be met with the complete opposite. This doctor has a horribly, unfriendly, rude bed side manner. VERY rushed appt. and wow, a terrible listener. Interrupted us a lot when we were trying to tell him the problem. He shows a lack of interest in what is being told to him. Only wanted to get his point out. Can clearly see he has major ego complex. Rinky dink practice, too. Sterile front desk staff. Dashed hopes/waste of money/time

Dr Mikaelian was extremely professional and courteous. He solved an ear problem I had for months that no other doctor could help me with. He fixed the issue same day. One of the greatest doctor visits I've ever had.
