I love Dr. Jefferey Michaelson. He performed the surgery on my knee after a volleyball injury in high school and I was back to 100% in 2 months. Then a year ago, I had a ski accident and tore my ACL, MCL AND MENISCUS and just 4 weeks after surgery, I’m walking around and feeling about 80% recovered. He is a miracle worker!

Dr. Michaelson is amazing, one of the best doctors I have had the pleasure of being treated by. Unfortunately the Core Institute's scheduling personnel's customer service is abysmal. Even after cancelling my appointment they hade zero concern after I told them that I will be taking my health care needs to another doctor due to themselves. If asked I would have told them that I don't appreciate the attitude and condescending dialogue from there scheduling department. They keep on trying to schedule me with Dr. Slesinski when I have repeatedly told them and DR. Michaelson that I didn't want to be treated by him anymore due to his lack of attention, etc. The Core Institute obviously is only looking out for what is convenient for themselves. Very unfortunate that DR. Michaelson lost a patient due to their malfeasance. Again I would highly recommend DR. Michaelson, not the Core Institute! So this software has a minimum star rating of one star otherwise I would give zero, again for Core!

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!!

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

Barbara in Pinckney Mi – Apr 12, 2018
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and wasted hope if he'd mentioned from the beginning that his reputation as an innovative, fearless surgeon was outdated..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

Redford, MI – May 03, 2017
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.

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.
