The provider explained the possibilities of the true nature of my disease and how she was to continue the study to determine what the diagnosis will be. She promised to contact my principal provider with her recommendations as to the treatment once the ailment is discovered.

Aware of and sensitive to the financial burden that a patient can bear these days. Dr. Michaelis is also responsive to the other conditions affecting me and offers assistance in addressing them if I, as her patient, feel that another doctor isn't being responsive enough. Dr. Michaelis always keeps me up to date with field trials, what's been approved, etc.

This was an appointment for second opinion and initial consultation. Dr. Michaelis reviewed necessary diagnostic pathology reports to confirm specific diagnosis. She took the time to educate me about diagnosis, risk, prognosis and treatment. I traveled some distance for this appointment and could not have been more impressed with care. I was diagnosed in mid February 2019. Almost 9 months later, thanks to Dr. Michaelis, I now understand the diagnosis, treatment and goal of treatment. I will continue to receive ongoing care and monitoring with Froedtert Clinical Cancer Center.
