Dr.Michel is not only professional, patient, & an expert in his field, but also a kind person. He takes his time and thoroughly explains everything. I would highly recommend him and his amazing staff!

I took my mother in on an emergency visit, and I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed by the doctor and his staff. We're not from the area, but they were very accommodating and friendly. I enjoyed the experience so much that the following week, I brought my father. Really a pleasant experience. Can't recommend enough.

Dr. Michel is an amazing surgeon and I have recommended him to everyone who has asked about my surgery. I explained to him how important it was for me to be back in my heels and I am happy to say after having surgery on both of my feet in 2015. I am comfortably back in heels. I followed all his instructions and I am happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Michel for the care and comfort that you extend to all your patients. First Class!

I'm a physical therapist and have worked with several of Dr. Michel's patients. He genuinely cares about his patient's well being and progress and has great bedside manner as a result they all love him!

This is a young, friendly and knowledgeable physician. Staff was friendly as well. Office was very clean and welcoming. The waiting time to see Dr. Michel was short. Level of service was very professional. Dr. Michel took the time to clearly explain the recommended course of treatment. I plan to continue seeing Dr. Michel and I highly recommend others seeking a competent and friendly podiatric physician to do the same.
