Patient Comments (12)
Exceptionally adept. Because he took such great care in my nasal surgery my recovery was fairly easy (compared to the horror stories I heard from other people.) It made such a difference in my ability to get a good night's sleep too. He's an expert, and that's the only type of person I want doing any surgery on my face. Very professional and nice too.

The guy is the real deal. He gave me my life back after struggling with obstructive sleep apnea for a long time. He is easy to talk to also. He listens. He also corrected a surgical mistake by another doctor. I urge you to call him if you are considering it.

DO NOT ALLOW DR. MICKELSON TO PERFORM SINOPLASTY -- IT IS TORTURE -- in speaking with other patients of other doctors -- a much better experience. I changed doctors.

While Dr. Mickelson did not have the most friendly or outgoing personality, his diagnosis of my sleep issues were spot on. I do not mind that he was very cut and dried with with his diagnosis. He asked all the right questions (yes or no, no elaboration!)
in Alpharetta, GA |
Beware!!! Keep a hand on your wallet!!!! This office has sneaky tactics to bill you and your insurance for extra procedures without your consent! I went in for a routine sleep apnea "consultation" and left with a bill for almost $200 dollars.
Atlanta, GA |
Terrible approach to patients. Spends half his time on a computer vs interacting with the patient (and this was over multiple visits). Over-ruled his own anesthesiologist
Roswell, GA |
Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor, I have lost all trust in doctors as a result!

After several visits, it is clear that Dr. Mickelson is agenda driven. All roads led to his latest study - the Nspire procedure, where he needed candidates to help with his study. I did not want to be a guinea pig on the new procedure. He put me to sleep in his partially owned facility with the agreed goal to see how my throat collapses in order to define other surgical options that may work - prognosis lacked any details other than to say-I was a candidate for N Spire. Waste of money and time

Dr likes to run your insurance out to the max.Beware! He will cozy up to you while going over his list of cost and acts like there is a need for the cost.It was a very odd and uncomfortable experience.

2012, Dr. Mickelson removed a dentigerous cyst in my maxillary sinus, repaired an oral-sinus fistula, and septoplasty. I had been sick for several months, without knowing the reason for my symptoms. After a CT scan, I was referred to Dr. Mickelson, and he immediately laid out a course for surgery. He was able to get my surgery scheduled quickly, and everything went as planned.

Waste of time and money due to incorrect diagnosis.
