Dr Michaelson really does listen and understands what you are telling him about your pain. I have seen him for knee problems and he took care of it right away. Now my husband sees him too. I highly recomend Dr Michaelson he's a great Ortho/sports med Doc!!!
in Commerce Township, MI |
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

Dr. Michaelson listened to my concerns and addressed them all. I feel he took the time to explain things and overall gave me a good outlook on my issue. I feel he has guided me to make the right decision for my wellbeing.
in Commerce Twp, MI |
Professional. Highly recommend without reservation or hesitation.
Redford, MI |
Dr. Michaelson took the time to answer all of my questions and thoroughly explained the procedure he performed. I felt confident in his skills and at ease under his care.
in Brighton, MI |
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.
Northville, MI |
Only saw the Doctor for about 5 minutes. Not much analysis done. Disappointing.
in Highland, Michigan |
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.
in Novi, MI |
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.
in Roseville, MI |
called for this dr. receptionit said he was no longer working there. then I said my primary dr said I might need laser surgery on my knee. this receptionist said. " hmmm I don't think we do that ". I said well if you don't do it then I don't need an appointment there, she said ok bye. great business! !!! this is Caring about patients?
in Plymouth, MI |
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.
in Livonia, MI |
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.
in Novi, MI |
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.
in Minneapolis, MN |
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.
in Livonia, MI |
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.
in Detroit, MI |
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
