I am impressed with Dr. Michaelides skills as a surgeon and knowledge as a physician. Yes, he can get backed up with patients, but that's because he takes the time to talk and listen to them. I highly recommend him for your Neurotology medical needs.

Dr. Michaelides is certainly a smart and intelligent man. I saw him multiple times in the past 10 years or so for an unfortunate ear condition of mine. Had a few surgeries and unfortunately, no progress. Nonetheless, he did care about my condition. I will say its hard to hide that he is a busy man so it may come across as him not giving as much time to the patient. Overall, he is a talented man who does good work. Its unfortunate he couldn't help me, but the ear is complicated. I recommend him

I have chronic ear issues since I was little- now in mid-30s. I see the doctor every 6 months and we discuss next steps. He's never pressured me into surgeries, though we've discussed them as eventual next steps, etc. He's attentive, incredibly smart and also does a great job with his medical residents. I would have given 5 stars but he's been through a couple of nurses/assistants and a couple of times I haven't received calls back from them or follow ups as I was promised.

I saw Dr. Elias Michaelides at VA Connecticut Healthcare and feel we deserve better. He didn’t bother to read my file, or ask me why I was there. So, thinking he knew, I started talking, to be humiliated in front of the whole office and waiting room, with him yelling(you’re here for me to evaluate your meniere’s and that is it) with the office door open(he hits papers I was trying to show him, back at me). This was my 2nd appointment to talk to him, because he was held up somewhere the 1st time.

Dr. Michaelides was very nice and genuinely seemed interested in my symptoms opposed to other doctors who have written me off. Great experience and although I live about an hour away, definitely worth the drive. I look forward to continuing to work with him and his team.

My daughter has been a patient for several years and he has developed a great relationship with her.
