Dr. Michels' bio
This content was provided by Dr. Michels "I completed my ophthalmology residency at the Casey Eye Institute at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon in 2008. I was fortunate enough to be selected to two year American Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) approved fellowship in Columbus, Ohio and completed this training in 2010. After completing this training, my practice, Northwest Eyelid and Orbital Specialists, was started in Spokane, Washington. We strive to provide the most advanced care in our field in a personalized, quiet, and comfortable setting. "
This content was provided by Dr. Michels "The approach from the entire clinic team for any patient in our practice is to try to individualize that person's care to achieve the best possible outcome. In short, my goal is to provide any options, surgical or medical, that might be available for the concerns that are present in our clinical visit and provide a recommendation that I would for a family member. I always refer back to what was told to me by my mentor in my fellowship training, "Is this what you would recommend for a family member?" If one can answer yes then you know you are doing the best thing for that patient."
