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.

I've been seeing Dr. Michels for a few months, and he has been fantastic! He spent an unusually long time with me the first time he saw me (which in itself is unusual for some doctors these days). He has answered every question I've asked in a way I can understand, he is very knowledgeable, is very friendly and easy to talk to, and seems interested in helping me the best way he can in whatever way is best for me. I've been very impressed with him both as a doctor and a person.

Dr Michels is an amazing Doctor. He works very hard to provide quality of life and pain relief through conservative, healthy treatment options. I am very lucky to know this provider.

If you have bad chronic pain, I do NOT recommend this doctor as he does not prescribed the necessary medication and expects you to just deal with your chronic pain. He also takes over a week to get back to you when you call him. He does not have enough experience to treat bad chronic pain.

Dr. John Michels is the most effective and caring doctor I have ever encountered. I was suffering from periformus syndrome which caused severe nerve pain stemming from my lower back down both legs. Not only were four previous doctors unable to help me, but they were unable to even properly diagnose my condition. Upon my first visit to Dr. Michels, he was able to identify the problem and set up a plan to successfully treat me. After years of pain and depression, joy has returned to my life.

Dr Michels was recommended by my neurologist and I can't say enough good things about him. He is very caring, compassionate but most of all listens to what you're experiencing. He performed an epidural injection on me and it has helped the pain. He is a very good doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Experiencing pain on a daily basis, is no walk in the park. This Doctor is amazing, he understands your concerns and incredibly knowledgeable about helping you through the process. Most of all he is extremely personable and listens as though you are his only patient.. I cannot say enough praises about Dr Michels and his great staff.! So far above most medical offices.

Highly recommend Dr. Michels. He and his staff are very courteous and go beyond what I expect from a doctor to make sure you are being taken care of. Explained everything in detail and was a great listener to all of my concerns and was able to answer them in a language I understand! He has helped me a lot with my pain and discomfort...

Dr. Michaels is awesome! From his bed side manor, to his physicians skills. coming from a pro football career and dealing with a career ending knee injury he knows first hand what it is like to live with pain. The guy flat out gets it. He is the only doctor in 30 plus years of dealing with severe back pain that has really been of any help to me. As great of a doctor that he is, it is only superseded by the person that he is. If he weren't my physician, I would still want him as a friend.
