Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Michael "My practice is very personal in nature. I tailor treatments that are as individual as my patients' needs. I take a very patient-centered, conservative approach so patients don't waste time on treatments they don't need and can focus on a faster, more efficient recovery. I allow plenty of time for evaluating patients, reviewing scans together, and educating them on all their treatment options in a relaxed setting."

I have been to a couple of different doctors trying to figure out what was causing pain in my hip and lower back.

When it comes to brain surgery, needless to say I was hesitant to trust someone with the job. After receiving multiple opinions, Dr. Michael was clearly the surgeon for me. He made me feel comfortable, safe, and made sure I completely understood everything.
