Sat down with me and took time to discuss meds I was on.
Office staff was ok, office reminded me of small town office with very small waiting room.
Dr Michalak was patient and listened to my concerns, he didn't rush and I felt like he genuinely cared about my well being.

he listens to his patient very well---
Excellent all around.
Dr. Michalak was listed as a family dr. and I chose him as such because my PCP relocated and even stated this in my preappointment paperwork. When I arrived at the appt. I discovered his office is a sleep disorder clinic, and after hearing my symptoms his only recommendation was a sleep study. The nurse never completed my vitals and the Dr. spent much of the visit questioning the validity of what other drs had told me and why I had seen the specialists I had been told by my last PCP and rheumotologist to see. I was also charged a higher co-insurance during check out because he was a "specialist" not a PCP. I left feeling misled and judged for doing what other Zoc Doc health professionals had asked me to do.
This office is excellent. Dr. M has a great bedside manner and always gives you the time you need with him. great find for a Dr.
It was great!!!! Dr. Michalak was so nice, patient, explained everything and most important really listened to how I was feeling. Highly recommend him to someone looking for a family doctor. I was in and out within 30 minutes.
Dr. Michalak was a rarity, since most physicians I have worked with seem over-worked and spent for time. I walked in with a great nurse who took vitals etc, and then Dr. Michalak walks in, sits down across from me, shook my hand and said, "Hi, I'm David Michalak, so..Tell me a little about yourself and what's going on". You read that right. He sat across from me and was interested in my TOTAL well-being instead of..let's just get to why you are here and get to the exam..which was a simple physical checkup. He addressed any issue I had, really listened, cared about something that I had a hard time about and worked around "that", and I left feeling the best EVER from a doctor's appt!. Calm, collected, cared for. Yes, I recommend Dr. Michalak and his staff even calls back right away with messages left after hours. Nice.
This was our first visit to establish ongoing care for 15 year old son with migraine having been to several specialists in Colorado in the last year. Dr Michalak was patient in listening to a lot of previous experience and advice, and ultimately suggested sleep study, and sleep aids. This is his sub-specialty so we anticipated that direction.
informative and will use him for my new PCP
The staff were friendly and accommodating. Dr. Michalak was great. He was attentive and thorough. The visit never felt rushed. I highly recommend him and his staff.
Dr. Michalak provided excellent care in regards to my husbands health. Highly recommend him!
Wow!!!! I hate going to see a doctor. This visit just wowed me the staff cared the doctor was awesome. I notice most doctors talk at you. Not this one he looked me in the eyes and listened. Wow.
He sat down and listened for longer than most doctor's would... and I have a tendency of rambling. He seemed knowledgeable and aware of treatments for my issue and seems willing to work on achieving a successful outcome.
Love this doctor.
If we had not seen Dr. Michalak the outcome of my accident would have been much worse. He takes his time and cares about his patients. I will go to him first before going to any specialist.
I would see Him again
Easy to talk to; answers questions accurately and professionally; showed concern about trying to resolve my problem; takes care/responds quickly.
Front office was awesome. As a guy, always weary of docs, this guy was cool and relaxed. The nursing staff was excellent. Highly recommend!!!
Nice doctor. Awful at getting back to you with results. And if results are fine they won't try to figure out whats wrong with you any further.
He listened, understood, and administered his medical expertise.
He takes the time to listen & treats you accordingly.
Great listener and bed side manner. Glad I found him
Very good doctor, honest and direct with patients
Not pleased with the head nurse. She is not very personable. Bad bed side manner.
He took as much time as needed to explain everything to me and answer all my questions.
It was my first time seeing him , found that he is a good listener , felt very comfortable talking to him.
We needed a doctor for our teenage son, to perform a sports evaluation. But later, when a real medical problem occurred, we were so glad Dr. Michalak was there to help. He is very knowledgeable and personable. He takes time to listen and to answer questions. Our son likes him, and we trust him.
He is a very down to earth person, that makes you feel like a person an takes his time with each of his appt, an is honest with you up front to much to put down i highly recommend him to all my friends even when I go to the Er.
Dr. Michalak is a caring physician who had a dedicated staff. Kim and Julie are both very helpful. Dr. Michalak doesn't interrupt, he listens carefully, explains very well and is professional and knowledgeable. Great doctor. Great staff. Affordable. He is our new family physician. My husband really likes him and found it easy to trust him. That's a major plus as I've had to really push to him to a doctor so...We're pleased! :-)
He is our "family doc". We all really like him. It's a small, intimate practice. He's very responsive, listens well, and provides helpful information.
Very professional, helpful and absolutely no wait time.
This was my first visit. I thought the staff were friendly and so was the doctor. He seemed to listen and we made a plan to follow up on. First impression was good so I hope it stays that way.
Very cordial. Took time to listen to my concerns. Friendly nurse and staff. All anyone could ask for in a doctor visit!
Spend extra time to find out about me and my family. Very nice.
Dr. Michalak impresses me as very knowledgeable, more so than many physicians I've seen. More importantly, he actually sits and listens to what I have to say, which I've sadly found to be SO rare. I've been hanging out in my body for 50ish years and know a bit about it. He gets this.
Very personal and willing to sit down to talk with me to make sure my needs were met.
Outcome was great, hoping for some progress re sleep disorders , finally !
Very good -looking forward to having his direction to keep me on course and feeling better.
He was very quick to listen to everything that I had to say, and we came to a solution because of it.
This is a low key, relaxed and attentive practice with convenient appointments and personalized attention. There is not much more I could ask for.
We really like Dr Michalak! I would highly recommend him. He doesn't rush through your appointment and he is very attentive to what you have to say. It's very easy to make an appointment and you can usually see him the next day. His nurse is sweet and personable. Receptionist is very nice too!
Very professional an nice office staff

Very insightful doctor who really cares! Highly recommended!
It went very well. He made u feel comfortable.
Dr.Michalak was available at the appointed time; the only reason I did not see him right away was a need to complete new patient paperwork. Dr. Michalak listened intently to my health complaint, gave sound advice, and provided a referral to a specialist, I was impressed with his competence and experience. His practice is fairly new, as we are, to The Woodlands. It is open to new patients. As a family, we will going forward use him as our new family physician.
As usual, Outstanding!
Love this Dr, fortunately I had to get on Medicaid he don't take. But does do other many issuance, I highly recommend this Dr he takes the take time to sit and talk to you and wants to listen to you. There isn't enough words describe how much of a good person he is. Thank Dr Michalak for being the good dr you are, and taken care of me. Wish I could see you still.
For my first time visit, I went in for one thing and he found something else...a heart murmur. He immediately sent me to a cardiologist. I am thankful for that. I will definitely continue to use him.

Very helpful and more thorough than previous physician. Is addressing my issues that other doctor said were not necessary for follow up
Could not be better.
In spite of the fact that Dr. Michalak's office had no record of my appointment, Dr. Michalak was able to see me promptly. Dr. Michalak always takes care of my medical needs in an excellent manner, and I plan to see him for the foreseeable future. Dr. Michalak's appointment system needs some work, however
He is very nice and spends ample amount of time with his patients. I trust him and I value his opinions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a family doctor.
I wasn't to impressed.
Good as always.
I appreciate the way Dr. Michalak listens, pauses, prescribes, and explains in very understandable terms what's going on in my body and why and how the meds will help.

Pleasant greeting-efficient-respectful-listened and offered alternative treatment (pills vs.injection)-making it easier to return to work same day. Thanks and I will refer friends.

Like him so much that I am setting up my husband and mother with him.
If you have to be sick, this is the person you want taking care of you.
Concise and to the point.
He was very concerned doc, an he took the time an sit down with me. I had only seen one doctor since me moving from Missouri. An he is the second I get good vibes an hoping to continue to see him in my future health. Thank you very much Doctor Michalak you took the time an sat with me an went over everything. The meds he gave has helped a lot.
Dr. Michalak was respectful and considerate. He gave me some excellent advice. I'm convinced that he actually has common sense, the ability to treat his patients like thinking human beings, and genuine concern.
Very professional. Listened to concerns.
I was the only patient in his office when I went in. I saw him walking around before the nurse took my back and sitting at his desk as she took me back. When the nurse was finished I still waited about 5 minutes for him to come. Thought that was strange seeing how I was the only one he was tending to.
Great office staff. Very friendly atmosphere. The doctor is knowledgable and appears to be caring. He was easy to talk to.
Excellent visit. We covered a lot of ground in a short time.
Dr. Michalak is always courteous and professional. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient for the day and you are important,
Very polite, helpful, knowledgeable.
Dr. Michalak is an awesome doctor! He is very personable, really listens to his patients and only prescribes medicine when needed. He isn't just trying to hurry you out!
didn't really listen to my concerns.
This was my first visit and I was very happy. I was emailed documents before my appointment so that I could have them ready and reduce wait time. Once I got there I was seen almost immediately, and the nurse was very nice. Once Dr. Michalak came in a short time later, I never got the feeling that he was trying to rush with me just to get to another patient. It was a very positive experience.
Knows more about medicine than any others I have seen in several years!
As always Dr. Michalak is awesome!!!
The front office staff was very pleasant.Dr Michalak was very competent and friendly.Evaluated the situation and took the necessary action to resolve the problem.

Dr. Michalak was very professional, good natured and genuinely cares about your well-being. He is a great listener and you can tell he makes recommendations that are in your best interest. First time to see this doctor and I would recommend him to everyone. Great job!

I never feel like he is rushing to see another patient. I highly recommend Dr. Michalak for any medical need! :-)
Dr. Michalak is the family physician that I have been looking for since our relocation to this area. He is an attentive, caring listener; extremely educated, and well-rounded in his field. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a family physician their children (and parents) can grow with.
Excellent! Dr. Michalak was very helpful and listened to my concerns. He even went out of his way and set me up an appointment with a specialist that I needed to see.
I had to reschedule our appts.; however, I recommended my dad, to Dr. Michalak, and he saved his life! Thank you, Dr. Michalak.
