Dr. Michel is a brilliant physician who is also very compassionate and caring. He has impeccable bedside manners and takes the time to make sure you (the patient) get all of your questions answered as well as making sure that you don't leave until you fully understand everything that was discussed regarding your visit. I would of given 10 stars if we could!

I would recommend Dr. Michel to others because if you are looking for a good doctor that can get you better he knows what he is doing. He takes the time with you to make sure you are satisfied. Also his staff is the best they are really nice and sweet. I would give this office and doctor an a+ for the overall experience

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.

Dr. Michel is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and he won't let you leave until he has answered all of your questions. He he DOES NOT sit there and stare at a computer screen while he is in the exam room with you. He actually listens and cares!
