My autistic daughter saw him for about 3 years. He always treated her with kindness and respect and seemed to truly care about her medical needs. He never rushed us and my daughter is nonverbal and sometimes babbles very loudly and he never seemed annoyed and would just talk louder so I could hear him. He is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend him. The only thing I don’t like is that he switched offices and is now too far for us.

Dr Michel is the psychiatrist that I have needed for the last 50 years. He is kind and listens - in a drama free, no judgment zone that he creates and maintains. He will never let you down and is always available. Dr M is a real warm human being who will engage you and who truly cares about you and about how you feel - AND isn't hesitant to let it show. He is smart about his field and prepared to travel your path with you. Supportive and honest. You can talk to him about anything - please do. You will never regret engaging with this man. Don't be afraid - go ahead, make the appointment, ask him for what you need, ask him for suggestions, it's ok, you're always safe with him - HE WILL MAKE SURE OF THAT! I promise - I have experience and I have tested the waters with every crazy thing I've got ; ) Thank You Dr Michel ~ I'm finally wandering out of the wastelands

I saw Dr. Michel yesterday for the 1st time. I was very impressed at how long he took with me, and in a non-hurried manner. I felt as though he had ginuwine interest in gathering my history in order to provide the treatment I need. i will update in the future should my opinion need changes.

This Dr is a complete JERK. Avoid this office at all costs. They kicked my 7 year old autistic son out of their office due to us having 3 no shows over the two plus years my son was being treated. This office doesnt care about people and obviously just looks to make money. My son was never late to one appointment with this doctor other than my family having to travel suddenly due to a family member falling ill. They dont care about any legitimate reasons for missing an apointment.

My daughter waited 2 mths for her apt. Suffering with high anxiety and depression. Her apt was at 1pm. She arrived at 1245. She was told she was too late because she would have to fill out paperwork. Turned her away with no available Apts. She goes back to college in 4 days. What kind of doctor would allow this to happen, especially when he deals with mental health. I work in medical field, this should not happen. He will be reported. Referring doctors will also be made aware of this.
