I highly recommend Dr. Michaels! I did a lot of research to find a plastic surgeon for liposuction and decided to go with him. I had lipo of upper and lower abdomen and flanks. This was one of the best decisions I have made. He takes the time to understand exactly what you want, tell you honestly what results to expect and most importantly does a great job.

I have never met a doctor or staff who is as caring and attentive as Dr. Michaels and his office staff. Dr. Michaels made sure to answer all of my questions and concerns before my tummy tuck, breast lift with implants, and arm lift. Any questions that I have had so far post op he gets back to e almost immediately. My results are better than i even thought they could be. I live 4 hours away and would drive 10 more if I had to!

Dr. Michaels and his entire staff are absolutely amazing. From the first time I walked into his office, everyone made me feel comfortable. Dr. Michaels answered all the questions I had about my procedure and took the time to explain what to expect after surgery. He's not only an amazing surgeon, but he is a caring doctor. He has a great bedside manor and an easy going personality. I look forward to my follow up appointments and can't wait for my next procedure.

Hands down AMAZING! I am beyond thrilled with my results. All the effort I put in at the gym just wasn't showing through. I had lost the weight but after my children and weighing over 220lbs with each one my poor body was a hot mess. Dr Michaels made my body shine through and show off all my hard work underneath that I knew was there. Such wonderful welcoming staff and Dr Michaels who truly cares for each and everyone of his patients, I knew he was amazing but WOW! I love my new body! Thank you!

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Michaels as I described what had been making me self-conscious and physically uncomfortable for the majority of my life. There was no judgement associated with anything I told him. He truly listened to my concerns and took time explain my options and set expectations. His genuine concerns for my metal and physical well-being continued the day of the operation and all the follow-up appoints. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Michaels and his staff are amazing. Professional, sensitive, supportive, efficient, clear, and honest. He is everything you want in a physician -- expert competence, transparent in expectations, and a really nice person. More than good bedside training, he is professional but also you feel comfortable. It is not an office that tries to find your flaws and projects. They listen and help you understand what is possible and best. I could not recommend them more highly.

I highly recommend Dr. Michaels. During my first appointment, I immediately knew that I had found the right doctor to perform my plastic surgery. He took plenty of time to explain the procedures that I would need to safely achieve the best results possible. He thoroughly and patiently answered all my questions and addressed my concerns so that I felt completely prepared and confident before my surgery. The results of my surgery far exceeded my expectations. I am thrilled with the results!

Dr. Michaels is a superior surgeon. My experience from the initial consult to post surgery care was excellent. His staff is excellent and your needs are always met. I could not be happier with my results and am planning a second procedure in 2018. Stop searching for a surgeon and choose Dr. Michaels. You are guaranteed the best results!

Dr. Michaels is the best! I have 10 years of experience, as a patient who gets fillers. I've never met a more precise, experienced, and knowledgeable Dr. Anyone looking to find the best Dr. For Botox and filler, Dr. Michaels is it! I have never been disappointed and neither have any of my friends! I get compliments all the time on how young I look!

Dr. Joseph Michaels and his staff are excellent to work with. From the initial consultation, through surgery, and the follow up care, Dr. Michaels provided top notch service. He really took the time to get to know me. He listened to my concerns and understood my goals in the procedure. After a significant weight loss, I decided to have the excess skin removed. Dr. Michaels really hit the ball out of the park. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results!
