Ratings for Dr. Martin P. Michalewski
Best Doctor ever. Period. After being told my incontinence can't be helped by other doctors after failed surgeries this wonderful doctor told me simply no problem anything can be fixed and true to his word that he did. I wish I find him sooner and did not have to suffer long ordeal before. Had I know before that hysterectomy is not a procedure of choice for prolapse or very outdated procedure at least I would have saved myself two surgeries and couple of years out of my life. It's so important to see right doctor first time and have it done right not to go through unnecessary surgery...
There are not enough words to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Michalewski for giving me my life back. My journey began 12 years ago with a failed hysterectomy with mesh performed by another surgeon. One year later, I started to bleed and had to have the mesh removed with no guarantee that my bladder and vaginal walls would stay in place. Again, this was a failed procedure that was followed up by another surgeon with the group that made the repairs vaginally. To my dismay, after 3 surgeries, I was left with a profound vaginal bulge and was told by that surgical group that there was nothing that they could do to help me. That was 6 years ago. During this time, I have suffered with a vaginal apex vault prolapse due to a dropped bladder and rectum. Urinary incontinence, pessories and at times embarrassing accidents, have left me a prisoner of my body and depressed. In January of 2016, Dr. Michalewski was brought into my life by recommendation of Dr. Thomas Lake, Colorectal surgeon. In Dr. Michalewski's Lakewwod office, I had a vaginal ultrasound, rectal testing and urodynamic bladder testing all administered by Alison Fisher. Having had almost the same issues as mine , which were all corrected by Dr. Michalewski, she quickly put my fears and embarrassment to rest with her gentle and compassionate administering of all tests. At that conclusion, office administrator Tammy Flavin put me on a cancellation list to schedule my surgery prior to the new school year, which was very important to me. Tammy was true to her word and on August 10, 2016, I had Da Vinci robotic surgery at Monmouth Medical Center.I was home by 7 pm. the same day after having extensive vaginal repair, bladder and rectum lift, umbilical hernia surgery and removal of my ovaries.I required pain medication for only 2 days and felt great by day 4-5. To any woman out there, suffering needlessly with pain, embarrassment, incontinence and then some, I highly recommend that you put your trust in Dr. Michalewski as he will change the quality of your life. When I had lost all hope many years ago, Dr. Michalewski came into my life and gave me back the life I had long ago lost. Recommend 1,000%!
I am a RN and somewhat apprehensive about being a patient . I suffered for a long time from pelvic /uterus problems . Having procrastinating for a long time I finally decided to seek help but what I heard from doctors what I need make me even more leery to undergo any treatment or surgery. It was not till I witnessed myself, working at the hospital, how well dr. Michalewski's patients do, how they get up I say "wow, what a difference", "wish I done it sooner" that I decided to have my problems treated. My experience with him, his office, technicians and support personnel was excellent and true to his word my problems are history. It was so simple to have it repaired after all and I too wish I had it done much sooner! S.G.
I had a sling surgery 3months ago with excellent results. Despite negative mesh sling commercials on TV I trusted this very experienced and highly recommended doctor with treatment option he offered to correct my problems. True to his word results are excellent. He is very thorough, explains every step in diagnosis and treatment and helps you to choose option most fitting your expectations. I could not be happier and I do recommend him to all my friends who suffer similar urinary symptoms. It's so easy to have it corrected if you find right doctor who you can trust your health with. Most highly recommended!!!
