Suspicious!

This doctor claimed I had a serious eye condition (something different from the condition I went in for) and then tried to rush me in for laser surgeries the following week without fully explaining the situation to me or what to expect. I got a second opinion from a specialist in that condition and was informed that Dr. Michaelos' diagnosis was not at all correct. I was also told to stop taking the prescriptions he had prescribed for my other condition. Can't say I recommend. There was also a long wait, and he seemed rushed and forgot to write one of my prescriptions.

Deletes most poor reviews

Unprofessional and unethical. Erases most poor reviews, like mine. Tries to cover up his surgical mistakes. Very non-communicative. Runs assembly line surgeries. Very apathetic. Another follow-up opthalmalogist said he did very poor and disgraceful surgery that almost blinded my wife after three separate surgeries, on what he claimed was very basic surgery. The follow-up doctor further said that he was ashamed at some of the doctors in his profession. Luckily my wife didn't go back for a 4th surgery. Stay away from this "doctor".
