I would recommend Dr. Michel to anyone needing surgery. He did a great job and foxed my problem I've been dealing with for the last 27 years.
in Santee, SC |
This man took a great deal if time to make me feel comfortable, answer all questions, offer options, and help me to understand what to expect post surgery but he was also clear that I needed to do my part in the entire process. He is friendly, approachable, empathetic.
