      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
