So glad we were referred to her. She was attentive, explained the surgery in detail answering all our questions. Provided pros and cons to the surgery. The incision is beautiful. The scar is smaller than expected even through it is on the collarbone.

She was attentive. Answered all our questions. Explained the surgery and options. After surgery she took time to explain the plan for rehab. The incision was beautiful. She did an amazing job. So glad we were referred to her.

My 7 year old son fractured his right leg, Dr. McMichael and the wonderful staff at CHOC hospital went above and beyond caring for him. Dr. McMichael explained everything that was going to happen during and after surgery in great detail. I would highly recommend her!
