What People Say About Dr. Michael Han, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am agreeing that this doctor is prejudiced against patients who are over weight! Went for a first appointment for shoulder pain. He spent exactly 10 minutes with me and 7 of those minutes were talking about my weight. First thing out of his mouth was to ask if my primary care doctor had referred me to Multicare's weight loss clinic. When I told him "no" that I had spent the last year battling breast cancer and weight loss was not my top priority at that point.

Today is the one-year anniversary of Dr. Han's surgery of a torn meniscus in my right knee. I am pleased to report that my knee is in good shape and I'm looking forward to hiking season. Dr. Han initially gave me too long of a leash after my surgery, telling me I could be energetic in my self-recovery. I'm a gung-ho guy, and I caused myself some pain by being too aggressive with my early exercise routine. We met again; he had me dial things back and all has worked out well. I'm pleased.

I had knee pain and thought Dr Han would tell me I was crazy! He ordered an MRI which showed I had torn meniscus. Dr Han preformed surgery and everything went well! I found Dr Han to be very approachable and a great surgeon. The entire office is nice!

My 16 year old son had to have shoulder surgery. We went to multiple drs and all said he was fine and needed physical therapy. None even did an MRI. I kept asking for a second opinion, was referred to Dr. Han, we scheduled an MRI immediately, identified the problem, performed the surgery, did many follow ups and my son is better than ever.
