What People Say About Dr. Michelle Andrews, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She used to take time with her patients but since affiliating herself with Mercy Health Systems, the worst in the business in my opinion, she rushes through the appointment and out of the room. I saw her 25 years ago for scoping of both knees. 25 years later, I saw her for knee replacement surgery. She was aweful!

I have been a patient of Dr. Andrews for 4+yrs. She has treated me for severe arthritis in both knees, & a meniscus repair surgery on my left knee. I am in need of a TKR next year on my left knee, & will use Dr. Andrews with no hesitation. As others have mentioned, she is a very caring doctor, & spends the time to explain all the options/outcomes with you. In addition, she worked w/ me to delay my TKR for a few years (vs. diving in immediately) to avoid a 2nd revision. Highly recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Andrews for over 3 years. She was with me throughout knee injections in both knees and then total knee replacements in both knees. She is not only very professional, but also an extremely caring doctor. She is very knowledgeable and explains things so you understand what is going on, etc. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is in need of knee replacements - or any of her other specialties.

Dr. Andrews is a wonderful person and an eminent doctor. She has first operated on my mom's knee, and gave her back the mobility and confidence to travel internationally and even consider a Nepal hiking trip. She recently operated on my father's shoulder, the first surgery of his life. Dr. Andrew's outstanding bed side manners put him at ease and convinced him to undergo the surgery. The post-operative care and physical therapy really helped, and now he is looking forward to swimming again.

My experience with two knee replacements by Dr. Andrews , 2006 and 2016, has been remarkable. She is compassionate as well as highly skillful. Other professionals (x-ray techs, nurses, anesthesiologist) all remarked to me how exacting and careful she is. She explains what she's doing and why she does it, listened to the issues/concerns I had, giving me her total attention. I wouldn't hesitate recommending her to other family members or friends, knowing they would get expert care.

My experience was with Jessica Pykosz, PA-C. I would go back to her in a second. She was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, kind and caring. I felt she genuinely cared about my pain and problem. She consulted with Dr. Andrews on my plan for care and it worked out wonderfully. Jessica was just the BEST! I would highly recommend both Dr. Andrews and Jessica. The whole experience made me very happy. Thank You, Donna H.

Dr. Andrews was my first choice for my left shoulder rotator cuff; she treated me for the same problem on the right shoulder 11 years ago with great results. I was able to get an appointment easily, completed the diagnostic work-up and had surgery. Her explanation and illustration of my shoulder problems helped me understand what would happen during surgery and why PT was so important. I'm now back to all my normal activities, pain-free-thanks to Dr. Andrews and my therapist Marie Clarke.

Dr. Andrews is smart, caring, and a very skilled knee and shoulder orthopedic surgeon. She really cares about not only the surgery, but her patient's progress after surgery. The time she takes with patients is so much more than other physicians.

My wife, Rose Mary, is in late stage dementia. When i talked opiate pain relief versus a knee replacement, She would not do knee replacement. Understood. Then she told me, "What difference does it make?" Obviously Andrews did not think my wife was aware enough to understand. On the way home, Rose Mary looked at me and asked: "Am I dying?" We are going elsewhere and are very pleased with the Tri-Heath doctor we see. Andrews does not deserve accolades, but need dementia education.

Dr Andrews did a knee replacement for me. My results have been excellent. Dr. Andrews is efficient and businesslike yet I feel she is genuinely interested in you and your successful outcome. Took the time to answer my questions. Will have to have my other knee replaced in the future and I will be returning to Dr. Andrews.

I would recommend Dr. Andrews to anyone and everyone. She is very thorough, explains conditions in detail and is an excellent surgeon. She sutures like a plastic surgeon! No detectable scars after arthroscopic knee surgery and my knee feels great.

Reflecting on two TKRs in the last 4 years, I've come to appreciate Dr. Andrew's expertise as she saw to every detail of my surgeries resulting in two perfect knees! Dr. Andrews was not only concerned with the surgery. She educated me on my condition, treated me to avoid surgery, guided me in MY decision for surgery, helped me prepare actively for surgery, told me what to expect after surgery and what was expected of me for complete recovery. Now we rejoice together! She is a blessing!

Dr.Michelle Andrews was a second opinion,and certainly a happy one. After seeing another Dr., who will remain nameless, I was told I would need a total shoulder replacement. Still in pain I went to Dr. Andrews who recommended I do a series Vitamin d 3 and dark cherry juice to relieve my pain and swelling and come back and see her in 5 weeks. I was amazed how much better I felt both physically and mentally after 5 weeks. She is amazing and certainly not scapel happy. Thanks Dr. Andrews.
