“My first experience of a fractured bone was an event, Dr. Michalow listened and took my feelings in to play. They the year of recovery I couldn’t ask for a better doctor in my corner. Every time I called for my visits I always had his 110 % attention and excellent care! I could never thank him enough. My last visit with him and his staff still made me feel important. He walked me out of patient room to show me the final x-ray and wow didn’t even look like I broke my leg, and his staff was encouraging me with warm thoughts. From the bottom of my heart thank you, Dr. Michalow and staff for all your care through my rough time, I couldn’t have done it without you all! Take care!”

“Dr. Michalow was very kind and listened well as I told him about the pain I was having in so many areas of my body. Having had serious foot repair surgery, knee replacement, and hip replacement all on my left side I thought surely I was going to need a replacement of some kind on the right side. I hurt in so many places I wasn't even sure where the most pain was. I thought it was my back but was not sure at all. He did x-rays and told me what they said and that he thought what I needed was a couple of shots right in the spots that his hands had touched that had caused extreme pain. He was so right and the shots did the trick! I so appreciated that he did not set me up for some kind of surgery and was totally honest with me. He caring,knowledgeable, and honestly I rate him high on my scale of 1 to 10. Dr. Michalow gets an 11! Thanks for keeping such an excellent physician in our local area!”
