Dr Michelson is a bit shy so he can come off as arrogant but he is not at all. He is a very caring and highly skilled doctor. I had to fight my insurance to go see him because they wanted me to see someone cheaper but these are the only two eyes I have and I wouldn't let anyone else cut on them. The office staff is excellent and they have the office running so smoothly you get in and out very quickly. I highly recommend Dr Michelson.
