Dr Michelson did surgery on my bunion, fusing it & also correction of a hammer toe. He very patiently explained everything to myself & my husband. He answered all questions that we had. The day of my surgery he spoke to us again & put me at ease about the surgery. I just had my two week check up with him & all is well. I cannot believe what a fantastic job he did. I would definitely recommend Dr Michelson!!

I was in high school when I had to have foot surgery- he was patient and careful- taking the time to explain things to me without being condescending or negative. I've been back since for other injuries and have always found him to be available, honest, and a good treatment provider.
