I had eyelid surgery. Very happy with Dr. Michels explanations and his professionalism. He made me feel at ease. I especially liked that it was my decision if I wanted the surgery after he laid out the facts. I also appreciated his sense of humor and he has an excellent staff. It was nice to go into their offices after 6 months and they still knew my name! I would highly recommend him. I also appreciated the phone call after the MRI. He is worth the drive!

Dr. Michels is an artist when it comes to orbital decompression. He did an excellent job of reducing the exophthalmus I had suffered from for many years. My eyes feel better than they have in many years. Excessive tearing is greatly reduced and burning is only occasional. There is no easily visible scaring. I am very pleased with that part of the procedure. My only complaint is I wish there had been more information on the involvement of the sinuses and the possible after effects. My right sinus beneath the eye is partially blocked and at times the right ear seems plugged and my voice sounds like I'm inside a tin can!! I have been singing most of my life and this condition makes that very difficult at times. I don't have the resonance needed for tonal production even when speaking. I haven't had any infection or more than occasional plugging of other sinuses. I have worked very hard to keep all the sinuses open.

Compared to other medical experiences I've had and places I've been treated in, I received the best care at Dr. Michels' offices. He performed 2 surgeries on my eyelid and the experience was great. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the offices are clean, very professional and attractive, and the doctor himself was polite and reassuring. At no time did I feel anxious, and even uncomfortable parts of the procedure, such as inserting an IV in my arm, were handled well. The doctor explained everything thoroughly and answered questions.

Dr. Michels performed a DCR surgery to correct a tearing eye. This was done last April and now it is July and I just recently had the "stent" removed. The tearing is gone and it is such a relief. I was so very pleased to have been under his care, and would highly recommend him.

As a retired operating room nurse, I have very high standards when it comes to surgery and surgeons in general. Dr. Michels, his office staff and OR team certainly exceeded my expectations. During my diagnosis and resulting tear duct surgery, I experienced professionalism at every level of my care. Dr. Michels took the time to explain the procedure, associated risks, and outcomes. I went into surgery knowing exactly what to expect. Not only did I have a very successful surgical outcome, I also had no scar due to his outstanding suturing skills. Honestly, in my opinion, Dr. Michels is a five star surgeon from start to finish. In addition, he is genuinely a nice guy!

Dr. Michels removed a large tumor from behind my right eye two years ago. He is blessed with amazing skills and knowledge. Because of him, I did not lose my vision. I had a follow-up visit this past week, and again, his care has been thorough, caring and friendly. He is an excellent surgeon/doctor.

I would highly recommend Dr. Michels and his staff! Dr. Michels performed surgery on both my husband and myself in 2018 with excellent outcomes in both cases. His staff is friendly, courteous and efficient. Scheduling appointments is easy. The facilities are spotlessly clean.

I went to Dr. Michels because both of my eye lids were drooping bad enough that it was difficult to see. I had my surgery last Tuesday (September 4th, 2018 and my follow up today (9-10-18). I am totally satisfied with the results. My eyes are picture perfect. Dr. Michels staff in his Spokane office, as well as Richland are all very nice and and so professional and made me feel at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Michels for any eye problem you may be experiencing.
