Dr Besold and her staff are wonderful. My husband and I both see Dr. Besold for our healthcare. My husband has several medical issues. I don't believe he could get any better care. Her staff is friendly and are always on top of the many request I have to ask for.

I've been going to her for many years and she is the doctor that found my back problem and referred me to Ortho Indy for surgery the same day.Can't imagine going to another doctor for the same care. She always takes time to listen and figures out whats wrong with me.

She is a diamond in the rough! Dr. Besold is a gracious, kind doctor like we had years ago. She has treated my mom, mother n law and I with as much compassion and care as a doctor can. My mother-n-law has dementia, very entry level dementia but enough to scare her to pieces. Not one time has she been scared because Dr. Besold keeps her encouraged and is honest and upfront about each and every detail. Her staff tried hard as well. They remember we are human with real feelings!!

I have been going to Dr. Besold years and in that time period she has given my husband and I quality medical care. She spends ample time with you and listens to what is going on with your body. I gave her a five star review because she cares about you as a person not as income.

Doctor Besold seems like a very caring doctor until you really need her to go beyond just giving you something for a cold. She has lied to me to my face saying she will do something and when it comes time to her actually doing it she won't. If you want a doctor to go to for maintenance then she is your gal but if you have real issues that need some work and follow up with other physicians or some pain drugs you need another doctor.

Michaela is a wonderful Doctor who I trust my life with! Her ability to ask the right questions & really listen to her patients allows her to diagnose quickly and provide excellent recommendations to really improve her patients quality of life and overall health. I moved away from her area 3 years ago & continue to use her because she is compassionate, attentive, and well informed-also the kind of person whose always learning & teaching! She has been the best MD I've ever had!

she did not fax over 2 referrals and did not get prior authorization even though they had sent me to the appointment(wasting my time) and had even asked me for a fax number for 1 procedure while I was at the hospital getting multiple things done because they did not fax it over.. Told me that I could not get a medical device from her but had to wait in pain for months but called my insuranse and found out she lied. WOW thought I found a good honest care provider. I got fooled
