My appointment was relatively quick, though she was thorough about making sure she understood all of my health concerns. Be aware that the forms linked on the HealthMax website are out of date; the correct pre-appointment forms to fill out are the ones available through the web portal. The web portal also provides access to all lab test results. Dr. Michaelson is unafraid to make value judgements about about health factors such as weight, diet, and exercise. This conventional approach works well for me, but I see how combined with her direct and no-nonsense manner it could cause patients with different lifestyle choices and beliefs to feel judged or criticized. I'd characterize Dr. Michaelson's "bedside manner" as efficient, traditional, and professional.
