Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been receiving iron infusions for years. Dr. Michaelsen has taught me how to read my lab work and exactly what to ask my GP to order for me. Great compassionate Service.

Dr. Michaelsen and his staff are warm and compassionate, and it is apparent that everyone who works there wants to be there and wants to take good care of each patient. Dr. has done everything possible to aid in treatment of my cancer. He even took his time (around 2 hrs on a phone) to get approval on my new med chemotherapy with my medical insurance to have less side effects . I would recommend this kind ,caring Dr. to my family, my friends, and anyone with cancer. Vera Kraineva & G.Belskay
