He was my childhood doctor, and I have nothing but great things to say about him!
- Glenn

Dr. Michael is more than our pediatrician, he’s part of our family. My 5 children have had the pleasure of Dr. Michael’s care since 1991. He represents what old fashioned care is about and sadly a thing of the past. Dr. Michael is ethical, brilliant in my eyes and has a peaceful approach with the children. He always asks the kids about their schooling, interests and has an integral part of my children’s choices in their lives as they approach adulthood. Dr. Michael smiles at the children in a way that says the children are like his very own. 27 years with a wonderful doctor speaks volumes, he just can’t retire for another 8 years when my youngest is grown. We love you to the moon and back Dr. Michael...

Dr. Michael has been our life saving hero! He is thorough, loving, and patient with both of my very medically difficult boys. He makes sure to check up on them when they are super sick, which makes me feel like he truly cares about them more than just another patient on his schedule. He listens to all of my concerns and properly educates me on anything and everything he can. He really is my favorite pediatrician and I do not plan to stray from him EVER!

Have been taking our son to Dr. Michael for the past 4 years and we couldn't be happier. He makes your child as well as you as the parent very comfortable at the same time as being very informative. My son is always happy to see him. Wonderful doctor.
