Patient Comments (4)
If you want a Dr who cares,who gets you an appt in a timely manner ( less than 6 months), who calls back with your concerns within a week, then this doctor is NOT for you. Gross negligence for existing patients including apathy after a surgery are just a few things encountered. I would rate him and his office a zero . Office visits appear to be a way to gain money and office copays while continuing to practice neglect and incompetence. Therefore I will not be back.
We are disappointed to learn you had a poor experience and would like to speak with you. Since we don't know who you are, please call 877-784-3667, and ask to speak with the manager.

Dr. Michael performed my lower back surgery for spinal stenosis late 2016. The results was total success and I recovered much quicker than I expected. After years of limited mobility and back problems, I'm totally without back and muscle pain. I've regained my posture and active lifestyle. I credit this entirely to the knowledge and skill of Dr. Michael. During the whole process he offered accurate assessments on the surgery results . For backs, there is no better doctor!

Dr. Michaels' is the best Neurosurgeon! He removed a meningioma from my left frontal lobe on Valentine's Day in 2015. Through the grace of God, he was able to remove my tumor by entering my left eyebrow & reconstruct my eyebrow to match my right brow leaving very little scarring. Today I am still recovering & feeling thankful that I am blessed to be here to recover. Thank you God for blessing Dr. Micheals' and all of the healthcare professionals that provide my medical care.
