I had the most wonderful experience. every single staff person I interacted with was kind, smiling, friendly, and most of all knowledgeable. I'm even talking when I first walked in the door and the welcome desk. The person who drew my blood, I didn't even feel the needle! The person who checked me in at the lab, saw that I was pretty freaked out and was encouraging and soothing. The person who checked me in with the doctor was friendly and knowledgeable. The nurse I interacted with was professional and warm. And Dr. Michaelis was incredibly warm, friendly, thorough, knowledgeable, and put my mind at ease. I am so grateful to be working within a system that runs a so smoothly and employs people who clearly love their jobs. I could not have been more happy with my experience.

I have CLL and have been seeing Dr Michaelis every 3 months for 5 years while in remission. I have always found her to be thoughtful, compassionate and caring about the status of my health. I am completely satisfied with the care I have received and feel fortunate to be a patient of Dr Michaelis. She treats the whole person- not just the illness.

I can't remember, if ever, a time I sat in a doctor's office and felt so completely listened to. the doctor's focus was solely on me and what could potentially be causing my issue. Her nurses were also amazingly kind an responsive.

Dr Michaelis I am unbelievable MD. As a health care provider myself I have dealt with many doctors. Dr. Michaelis is the best.
July 23, 2020
Dr. Michaelis ensures that I understand my condition. She partners with me about course in treatment. Dr. Michaelis encourages questions from me, likely to ensure I have good understanding of condition, treatments and desired outcome of treatment. Dr. Michaelis is thorough and compassionate in her approach to patient care. I had certainly hoped I would not need care for hematological malignancy in my life. I am blessed to receive care from team at Froedtert Clinical Cancer Center Clinic. I aa fortunate to receive care from the most conscientious physician I have ever encountered, Dr. Michaelis. Thank you!
