Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

I felt very reassured with his skill, experience and knowledge. Because he also does plastic surgery, I felt that aesthetics would be considered and the end result will look good in addition to medically needed skin cancer removal. He spent as much time as I needed and I didn't feel rushed. Plus, he had thoroughly described my condition and the procedure to remedy the condition. I highly recommend him and would send all my family to him.

Dr. Michalak and his staff have been spotting and removing my spots of skin cancer for 14 years now. He does excellent work, the wounds healing fast with very little scarring, and his staff have always treated me with respect and in a professional manner. I would highly recommend his practice.

I've been dealing with various skin cancers for the past 20 years. New to this area, was referred by my primary, and have been very satisfied with the professionalism, courtesy and friendliness of his entire office. I had a Mohs procedure done on the tip of my nose, with subsequent closure by skin graft (due to previous scar tissue on my poor nose!) I'm very pleased with the appearance and healing. Appreciated the attention, answered all my questions, explaining every step. Nice people all.
