Waited 6 months for the appointment I had for 2/9/2017 and when I called to confirm the appt today 2/7/2017, was advised from operator all appts had been cancelled till JULY 2017. What? ....they couldn't leave a message on my voice mail that it had been cancelled, no email?? What a waste of my time!!

Rude , arrogant and will not listen to you. Will not give you the time you need to explain your medical problem. Compassion is alien to this person. This is the neurologist / Md i would see only if there were no other choices. He may not be a bad doctor but his ability to interact with his patient leaves a lot of diagnosis in the dark. How can he know your medical status if he doesn't listen to you.with him you get five minutes and you may have had to wait two months for the appointment.

MAKES APPTS IN THE FAR FUTURE THAT HE ALWAYS WILL CANCEL AND MAKE IT HARD TO GET A NEW ONE, EVEN IF IT IS AN EMERGENCY. STAFF IS NOT HELPFUL. DISREGARDS RECORDS NEEDS FOR NEW DOCTOR WHEN MIKESELL IS UNAVAILABLE. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT AND BAD GUY.

Dr.Mikesell clearly needs to find another profession because doctor is not it. I had brain surgery and had permanent damage to an area of my brain that was clear on mri and from my surgeon. This guy was rude and clueless to this information and clearly was not trained well in medical school. My surgeon and other competent neurologists told me I'm a survivor and tough. All of us Neuro patients are tough people. Why do you think the tough football players and shooting themselves to death.

Very robotic, nothing as his short video portrays himself. In and out of the visit with a flash with absolutely zero friendliness and listening skill. His staff was just as bad. Had to have some test done urgently and the front staff told me to wait 3 days so she can put a refferal in the computer. Would not recommend him.
Chicago, IL |
Dr. Mikesell was very abrupt and seemed irritated from the moment he walked in. He continuously interrupted me and barely allowed me a chance to speak. I wouldn't see him again.
