What People Say About Dr. Daniel Michael, MD

It has been one year from my surgery and I my life has completely changed. Dr Michael performed a discetomy on a disc that I had previously undergone surgery. Dr Michael ended up spending an extra hour and a half beyond the expected time frame of the surgery because there was more scar tissue then the CT scan showed. That is a dedicated surgeon who cares about their patients and wants to get the best results. Before the surgery I was bedridden and in constant pain. A year later pain free!!

Dr. Michael is an outstanding Doctor who cares about his patients. I see him now on a yearly basis for several problems with my brain, and have had him as my Doctor for almost 10 years. He always listens and does not miss anything on the physical exam. I have recommended him to several friends and family members, and they to are very happy with him and the care they received. Thank You Dr. Michael Marla

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.

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.
