5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Mole Removal and Post Op Laser Treatment. Issaquah, WA

This is a very competent and caring practice. All decisions were explained carefully. Dr Michalak, Melissa and the rest of the team were very approachable regarding timing issues relating to my skin checks and mole removals. They were also very sensitive to the location of several of the moles and have done their utmost to minimise the visual impact of the scars and the effect they could have on breastfeeding my forthcoming baby.

Skin Cancer and Mole Removals - Issaquah, WA

Stacey Bryant is my PA and has been for a number of years. That consistency is important because she remembers my past visits, my skin issues, and we have developed a well earned level of trust between each of us. She is very thorough in her body skin exams yet she respects my privacy. She has caught each and every issue; squamous, basal cell and atypical nevi (moles), the first time they appear. She has a great personality that makes one feel much more comfortable right from the beginning. She has the skills, training, and experience so that when I leave I know that for the next year all will be well.

Fraxel Laser - Issaquah, WA

Dr. Michalak and team did a wonderful job. I was very happy with the outcome and my face looks years younger! The team was very patient and explained everything to me and the benefits of the procedure. They answered my questions and I was confident it was the right approach. Afterwards I'm glad I did it. My face looks fresh and young.

Melanoma - Issaquah, WA

Over time, I have been examined and treated by both Dr. Michalak and Stacey, one of his PA's. Each time. I found myself most grateful for their expertise as well as their empathy. I have also appreciated the nurses and medical assistants who assisted them with my care during office visits, as well as during my surgical procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Mohs on Both Temples for Basil Cell - Issaquah, WA

Dr. Michalak fully explained all options and timing during the pre-op meeting. He answered all of our questions as well as providing answers to questions we didn't think of ourselves. His approach made us very comfortable and assured. He was very attentive during the procedures and made the best of a difficult personal experience (having cancer removed from my facial temples). Very well done!
