Dr. Michelsen was very thorough, extremely knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining what I needed to do for the repair of my shoulder injury. Definitely recommend him and his office and I will be moving forward with having him handle my surgery and recovery needs.

Straightforward, but willing to talk about alternatives. Walks through the issue on Xray, provides information on choices, but doesn't rush you into a decision.

Receptionists were unhelpful and rude. Doctor was okay- but the visit felt very rushed and that he was not actually concerned about me or my condition.

My son and I had appointments today with Dr. Michelson today for separate knee concerns. He examined us and took his time reviewing and explaining the results of the x-rays. I did not feel rushed and he answered all of our questions. Would highly recommend.

I had a great visit. I had seen Dr. Michelsen a few years ago and was please with the service provided at the time. With my recent injury, because of my prior experience with him, I did not hesitate to back to him.

Dr. Michelsen is very knowledgeable, thorough and precise. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I had neck and shoulder pain. He listened with intention, had X-Rays taken on the spot, and interpreted the X-Rays for us on the same visit.

I was in need of a 2nd surgical opinion, for my upcoming Microfracture and partial Menisectomy, when a coworker suggested I see Dr. Michelsen. Needless to say I was very impressed with Doctor Michelsens professional knowledge and initial consultation.He not only gave me more insight, but made me feel more confident in having the procedures done. If you're looking for a knowledgeable Orthopedic Surgeon, look no further than Dr. Michelsen.
