He earned his MD/MBBS degree from Ochsner School of Medicine/University of Queensland (New Orleans/Australia).  Following medical school, he remained at LSU Health in Shreveport for a Gastroenterology fellowship and where he was named chief fellow. This is just one of many honors including the American College of Physicians Internal Medicine Award of Excellence, graduating at the top of his medical class. He also received the Dean’s Commendation for High Academic Achievement during medical
school.  During his academic career Dr. Michael served as a teaching associate and tutor and participated in several research projects on Gastroenterology subjects and delivered both poster projects and oral presentations. Several additional projects focused on quality improvement processes.  Dr. Michael is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is a member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, American College of Gastroenterology and the American College of Physicians.  In addition to work as a physician, Dr. Michael has provided planning and support for his family’s international business and has also performed volunteer work in New Orleans, Los Angeles and Australia.
