Outstanding doctor and surgeon. He is happy to answer questions and explains everything so well that it is easy to understand. I started physical therapy two days after my knee surgery and made great progress over the next 5 weeks. No question that he is the best in the business!!

Excellent surgeon, thoughtful doctor, and carefully listens to his patients. He doesn’t rush you, and does an excellent job of explaining in understandable terms exactly what is happening with your body, and options to correct it.

Dr Michaelson and his staff are tops in the nation as far as I'm concerned. I' very confident Dr Michaelson will take care of anyone that needs a top Orthopedic doctor. Wait time in his office is only about 15-20 min. You can feel very comfortable with him and ask him anything he takes his time with you and makes you feel like he is listening!! Great Doctor I highly recommend Dr Michaelson

3 times Dr. Michaelson diagnosed me with something (all in joints he supposedly specializes in) that needed a surgical fix, but he refused to do the surgeries. He could've saved me time, money, painful procedures, and wasted hope if he'd mentioned from the beginning that his reputation as an innovative, fearless surgeon was outdated.. What was the point of pretending to treat me if he was going to claim he wasn't experienced enough? Once I could understand.... but 3 separate times?

If you aren’t an athlete or important enough to this dr, he will dismiss your problems and move on. Nearly 2 years later I still suffer from a knee injury that was missed and endless chronic pain.

Very professional and great at what he does! I had 3 things needing fixing in my knee. I went to him from a referral from a friend that had used him previously. Everything is turning out a lot better than I ever imagined. Everything was explained so I could understand it. I started physical therapy the day after surgery was off crutches within 48 hours and I am progressing at an incredible rate! Shout out to his PA Ashley who is also awesome! They are the dynamic duo! Use them they are the best

After five years of being in severe pain after a total knee replacement, Dr. Michaelson was the first doctor to listen to me and is working to find the reason for the pain. I went there to discuss what could be done for my right knee and he said we need to figure out problem with left knee before discussing right knee. I am so greatful to him for his concern.

Only saw the Doctor for about 5 minutes. Not much analysis done. Disappointing.

Dr. Michaelson performed a knee-replacement surgery on me in January, 2017. The results are wonderful! Both before and after the surgery my office visits with Dr. Michaelson and/or his staff were most pleasant, on time and I felt listened to and informed at all times.

I gave previous review today, but (senior moment) mixed up doctors. Dr. Michaelson was very good at explaining my condition and giving a cortisone injection into my shoulder. He spent sufficient time with me and I would recommend him highly.

This doctor is the best doctor ever with a big heart, who loves what he does. Usually good doctors don't take medicaid ( what I have), but he takes any insurance... This makes me tear up when I think about it... This doctor cares about his patients more then money. One word - amazing, god bless him and his family. He repaired my acl and meniscus and did a perfect job. He is a man with kind smile and golded heart, who always cares about his job. Hope more doctors should be like him.

I was referred to Dr Michaelson, by my Primary Care Physician. Turned out that Dr. M. had to perform rotator cuff surgery on me. I had the surgery, went through my physical therapy, and now am able to move my shoulder around with absolutely no pain, and all strength is back to normal.

Dr. Michaelson is an extremely competent, compassionate and kind surgeon. He takes his time to throughly explain your problem and how to fix it. He ways the pros and cons very logically. He doesn't leave until all of your questions are answered. He is absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend him to everyone. He is a truly capable orthopedic surgeon.

Dr Michaelson diagnosed my knee problem quickly and I was able to leave his office painfree, something that seemed like a miracle as I thought I'd have this problem the rest of my life. For the first time in well over a year, I have much more strength in my leg and knee.

He took all the time I needed to find out what my problem was - knee. He is very thorough, kind and informative. He answered all my questions; made me feel safe that he would be able to take care of my problem. I would recommend him to anyone.

First meeting with Dr. Michaelson was informative. He basically diagnosed my problem and recommended physical therapy as the first step in alleviating the pain and strengthening the muscles
