Ratings for Dr. Richard A. Michaelson
Dr. Michaelson is compassionate, understanding, professional and knowledgable. My first consultation with him was scheduled at 3 pm on a Friday in July and He spent over 2 1/2 hours with me, explaining things, answering questions and making sure I was comfortable with his recommendations. Chemo was no picnic, but he made it tolerable. His staff was wonderful as well. Two years after finishing chemo, I still see him since I am on medications and he continues to be the best doctor I have ever met.
Won't do "second" opinions, won't treat stage iv breast cancer so a woman can stay in her home. Seems to take on patients who only have some financial or other connection. 1st time around, had woman buy a home to be treated by him, then refused to take care of hrr after the closing. Cancer spread because chemo couldn't be given on schedule because of distances to travel for it. At stage 4, he still holds grudge, so patient has to go over an hour away for treatment. Don't be fooled by reviews, not all breast cancer patients get fair and equal treatment at St. Barnabas.
I had to wait about a month for an appointment but it was well worth the wait. I was totally disgusted with another oncology office and had to make a move. Dr. Michaelson is compassionate, caring and understanding. I was amazed on how brilliant he is and how he treated me like an individual. When he wanted clarity on one of my lab reports, he actually called the lab while I was there. I never felt rushed and he took the time to explain everything and my options. If I didn't understand, he was patient to explain it again. I only waited about 10 minutes and could not believe how apologetic he was. He treated me like an individual and not a number like I felt at the other oncologist office in Morristown. I highly recommend him.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Michaelson and his staff. His compassionate care saw me through chemotheraphy and all my post-treatment visits. I continue to see him fir follow-up visits and count myself truly blessed to have him as my doctor. He sets a new standard for medical professionals--always taking time to discuss and resolve any health issues or concerns you may have. There are few doctors who are more caring than Dr. Michaelson. I would follow him to the ends of the earth.
