His devotion to patients also extends to groundbreaking research. Dr. Michaelson is leading crucial clinical trials of tailored therapies for patients with renal cell carcinoma and advanced prostate and bladder cancers.

Among his grateful patients is Donald Masison, who writes, “Dr. Michaelson saved my life. He is the kindest man I have ever known. Six years ago, when I was first diagnosed with cancer, I was scared. But after I met Dr. Michaelson, I had faith I could beat this deadly disease with his help. He told me what was going to happen, when and why.

“Throughout my treatment, he has always been there to help and reassure me,” Donald continues. “His easy-going manner always puts me at ease. Dr. Michaelson is my doctor, my friend and my hero.”
