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
