Dr. Michelson is an incredibly skilled, prudent, caring surgeon. Yes, caring! He followed me closely, responded immediately to complications, and thoroughly and consistently kept track of my progress. I trust him completely and enjoyed working with him.

Everyone from Dr. Mickelson to the therapists was amazing, professional friendly people with smiling faces make a big difference when you're having a tough time with the therapy. I've already recommended my wife. I want to say thank you to everybody, you made a difference in my life.

Before saying that Dr. Dayne Mickelson an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell that he is an extraordinary human being, person, and friend. Very few doctors have the magic of love, caring and compassionate soul behind the surgeon's hands like Dr. Mickelson, to replace the fear of illness and pain with peace, trust and confidence. The nightmare of my illness was almost a year long, visit's to other doctors and slowly became a dream of recovery only after my visit to Dr. Mickelson. He's really care about his patients. Thanks for showing me so much care, concern and for your highest level of professionalism! I highly recommend Dr. Dayne Mickelson to friends and family members.
