Dr. Michel and his staff are kind, compassionate, and very caring. I am so happy that I switched offices, because Dr. Michel actually took the time to run tests and answer any questions that I have. I live in North Hills, but have no problem driving to Tarentum because of the excellent care I receive. Every single staff member has been friendly and empathetic and it's a very pleasant environment. I highly recommend Dr. Michel to anyone looking for an amazing Neurologist who truly cares.

My husband saw Dr. Michel last week. I cannot believe how much time he spent with us and how he took the time to listen to us. His exam was excellent! Hopefully his treatment plan will help my husband but I have lots of faith with him. He took an interest which you don’t see anymore. His office staff are very friendly and caring. Thank you!

Dr. Michel was always kind and easy to deal with. I left the practice for a second opinion. When I recently asked if I could return, I was surprised to be told NO.
