Firstly, the guy is a time manager. Your time counts like his. No waiting around for hours. He is a no frills guy, tells you like it is, and doesnt sugarcoat anything. I am sure it has to do with his subculture of being from New York. He will talk to you about your ailment goes out of his way to find other items and at times can be very funny although serious He makes you feel as if you were one of his family. In my opinion the county is lucky that he hasnt left to obtain an academic position

Admitted to Thomas Hospital with ulcerative colitis and C. Diff. . Dr. Michener literally saved my life; brought me back from certain death! That was 3 years ago. Dr. Michener has since helped me manage my ulcerative colitis. I am leading a symptom free life today as the result of Dr. Meichner. I suffered with ulcerative colitis since 1974. I have been seen by many gastroenterologists. Dr. Meichner is by far the very best!
