Just getting started, but I believe Dr Michels is what I’ve been searching for. Conservative, straightforward and much common sense. Can’t wait for the treatment.

There was a mix up on the contact number. The calls were going to a home number instead of a cell number. My error that I do not routinely check the home number. Please make my cell number the primary contact. Thanks

James Butler – Oct 16, 2019
Dr. MICHAELS is by far one of the most communicative, compassionate, and caring doctors I have encountered. I have referred family members and friends because I know I can always trust him to approach things from the most conservative options before leading into other interventions. When nobody else was able to help me, Dr. MICHAELS had the expertise I needed to provide the best (and most effective) treatment. I have been relieved of a painful and potentially problematic condition because of the direction he took.

I have been fortunate enough to have been a patient of Dr. Michels over the years. He is engaging and thoughtful in his approach. Always truly interested in delivering the best care possible for me as his patient. I feel often that I'm visiting a friend more than a Dr. Always feel at ease with the knowledge my best interests are at the forefront of the care he offers, and in doing so offered an option to surgery.

Dr. Michels is an impressive fellow. He has accomplished a lot in his 46 years. Certainly seems to know pain in both patients and himself. We shall see how the pain subsides as treatment continues.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Michels and his staff. They are like family to us. Dr. Michels is a truly compassionate doctor that genuinely cares enough about his patients to spend the extra time to talk and listen* during a visit. He is a responsible and respectable physician. Putting my trust in him has truly transformed my life after years of struggle and a multi level c-spine fusion.

Best doctor I have seen. Great knowledge and attitude. You can tell he really loves what he is doing. Suffered lower back pain for 20 years and had immediate relief after one treatment. Cannot recommend him enough.
