I have been seeing Dr. Michaelis for several years for thyroid and pre-diabetes. She is thorough and takes time to answer my questions and provides information and suggestions for improved health. The staff seems very efficient and insurance has always been easy to process.

I've seen many endocrinologists over the years and finally found a good one! Dr. Michaelis was friendly, explained things well and was even able to find my old files from another doctor in the Memorial Hermann system. They even did an ultrasound right there in the office, no rescheduling! The office is a little frenetic, but it was early morning and lots of patients in the waiting room.

Its unfortunate that a doctor can be judge on the unprofessionalism and rudeness of their staff. That is what happened here. I didn't even get to see Dr. Michaelis, I had a late afternoon appt, took off from work to be there & when I got there (15-20mins later) l was told that the Dr. would not be in and I could see a different Dr. or reschedule. I asked why wasn't I called and given those choices before my scheduled appt. The response was "we found out in this morning"
