in Bethel, OH |
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.
in Batavia, OH |
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.
in Harrison, OH |
Dr. Andrews is the best! She has taken care of my shoulder, scoped my knee and done carpal tunnel release on both right and left hands! From diagnosis, surgery and recovery I have had superb care! Dr. Andrews and her team rock! Could not have asked for better!

Simply the best orthopedic doctor in the metropolitan area in Cincinnati
in Fairfield Ohio |

in Ft. Thomas, KY |
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.

Easy to talk to

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.
in West Chester, OH |
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.
in Cincinnati, OH |
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.

in Montgomery, Ohio |
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.
in Cincinnati, OH |
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!
in cincinnati, oh |
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.
in Cincinnati, OH |
The best. Surgery went better than expected, very little pain , almost no visible scaring and my shoulder is working well at 12 weeks
in Morrow, OH |
Dr. Andrews is very professional and does great work. She worked with arthritis in both my knees. I've had a total knee replacement in one and will have the other done soon. Although the surgery was extensive because my knee was so bad, after 8 weeks it has healed well and is very strong. I really appreciate Dr. Andrews expertise and dedication to improving the quality of life for her patients. She certainly did for me!
in Cincinnati, OH |
Within the last two years, Dr. Andrews has replaced both my knees. I found her to be very knowledgeable and she took the time to give me in depth information about what to expect with regard to the surgery and after care. She is very patient-friendly and wanted the best outcome for me. I highly recommend Dr. Andrews should you need any orthopedic services. Dr. Andrews is very friendly and easy to talk with. She also gave me all the time I needed to ask questions.
in Cincinnati, OH |
Simply outstanding! She spent 20 minutes talking to me about my knee pain and her diagnosis. Most specialists talk to you like they have an Uber waiting for them.

I feel very comfortable recommending Dr. Michelle Andrews to anyone that is looking for a reliable and conscientious Orthopedic Surgeon. Three years ago, Dr. Andrews did a TKR on my left knee. Less than seven months later I was able to travel and walk around London & Paris. My left knee was then "my good knee." In December, I had a TKR on my right knee; thanks to Dr. Andrews competence, knowledge, and expertise " I have two good knees".
in West Chester, OH |
Dr Andrews did surgery on my knee. I highly recommend her. She is extremely skilled and very personable. She fully explained what she would be doing and why. I felt very comfortable with her and it was easy to ask questions. I also saw her PA, Jessica Pykosz, who was excellent. The office is run very well, very efficiently and friendly. This is a superior practice and doctor.

I had been suffering with knee pain for five years when I finally saw Dr. Andrews. She did a thorough examination and quickly determined I had a torn meniscus. I had surgery upon her recommendation. My scars are very small and recovery was easier than I expected. I think she is an excellent doctor and would absolutely recommend her.

I have been visiting Dr. Andrews for 22 years. She has done 2 Meniscus,1 ACL,and 2 Total Knee replacements. I trust her skill with 100% pure satisfaction. I would highly recommend her and her staff. You do not go back to a doctor you're dissatisfied with, so as you can see by all the surgeries I have trusted her with, I am very satisfied and will continue going to her.

in West Chester, OH |
She was recommended by my PCP for shoulder problem. I liked her approach for treatment, starting with physical therapy, then MRI and ultimate rotator cuff surgery.
in Ciincinnati, Ohio |
Dr. Andrews is honest, caring, kind, AND extremely talented as a physician and surgeon. My family physician sent me to her because my right knee was in need of further examination and care. As a result, Dr. Andrews performed arthroscopic repair of the right and left meniscus, of that knee in June, 2016. She is a 100% believer in the use of physical therapy, ongoing exercise, ICE, and daily consuming of tart cherry juice. She does NOT believe in overmedicating.
in Cincinnati, OH |
After putting this knee surgery off many times I am very happy that I had Dr. Andrews take care of me. She said beforehand that if I did all that she asked that I would be fine. After the first few weeks of being a little bit uncomfortable things got better each week. Physical therapy is so very important. I am now pain free with just a little stiffness once in a while. Once I get up and start moving the stiffness goes away.
in West Chester, OH |
She has replaced both of my knees. In both cases, recovery required less time than predicted and the results were outstanding. I play tennis, bicycle, and hike with no restrictions.
in middletown, OH |
I highly recommend Doctor Andrews she replaced my right knee September of 2013. I set a goal to be playing golf in March of 2014 and I achieved this goal. she sets a plan for you before surgery and explains everything in detail as well as using art. She actually talks to you and genuinely cares.
in Hamilton, OH |
I recommend Dr. A very highly. I had my first total knee replacement 3 years ago . The surgery and recovery was uneventful with very successful outcome. I am in the early stages of recovery with my second knee replacement. So far, 3 wks post op, is going better than before. Dr. Andrews is a skilled surgeon.

I had my knee surgery with Dr. Andrews about 12 weeks ago and it went great from beginning to end. Dr. Andrews listens well when you first meet her to diagnose the problem and then fully goes over treatment options with you, until you agree on what the right course of action is for your situation. My recovery went better than most and I am very satisfied with the results and the experience. It took a while to get the initial appointment but after that scheduling was easy.

in Butler, KY |
Dr. Andrews repaired my rotary cuff and a tendon in my arm. She provided detailed information about the surgery, the pain associated with the procedure, her treatment plan, the requirements for physical therapy and the length and expectations for the healing process before and throughout the process. She is compassion and dedicated to her patients. Her credentials are outstanding but the care she provided exceeded my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone who needs orthopedic services

Dr. Andrews is the best Orthopaedic Surgeon/ Doctor in the Region and most probably one of the best in the U.S. I have been her patient for 20 years and have nothing but great things to say about her.
