Patient Comments (7)
Hempstead |
Told me a spot removal would be clean. Instead, he did the procedure in 2 minutes, left a huge swollen scar, and didn't even remove the whole spot. I will never go here again.
in Las Vegas, NV |
In 2002 I was diagnosed with cystic basal cell cancer on the tip of my nose. It had been there for years. This, it was quite extensive. I was referred to Dr. Michaels by another dermatologist as "the best". He was right. Dr. Michaels had to pull a lot of skin from my cheek. There was a concern what my nose would look like. The answer: my nose looks great. There is the tiniest of scars at the tip that blends with the contour of my nose. Only I see it. Great job!

Staff was knowledgeable and efficient working with my 16 yr old daughter. Staff worked with her to help ease her anxiety as she had to get a spot removed from her back. Doctor made sure she was comfortable with procedure before beginning.
Barrington, RI |
Poor service. Sub par attention and care. Felt like a chop shop. MD Consult was less than one minute, used expired topical medication. We were billed $400 with zero results. Very dissatisfied.
in Bristol, RI |
Very friendly staff, who listened to my concerns (everything from rosesa to acne to family history of skin cancer). Talked to me about options for treatment & took no chances with concerning moles. Highly recommend.
in Bristol, RI |
Not thorough.. Overall examination visit took under 5 minutes. Doctor Michaels never took the time to talk to me. Office staff was rude. Completely dissatisfied. A friend of mine had a similar experience. Beware and take my comment as a warning.
in Providence, RI |
Dr. Michaels is very smart, far from pompous or arrogant like many of
