I was so anxious about my appointment the whole day. Once i walked in the doors all that melted away. The receptionist, Jenn, greeted me with a smile and even talked to me about her own experiences. Dr Chock was so friendly and talked me through the process and what is going on with my body. She used plain language and shared the very minimal risks. I walked out feeling empowered and like I am finally getting the help I need. Thanks everyone!

Northwest Weight Loss Surgery and Dr. Michaelson saved my life. I had Lapband surgery in April of 2011. Since that time I've lost 149 pounds. Many of the staff members at NWWLS have had weight loss surgery. If you're having trouble, there's a good chance someone on staff has gone through the very same thing. The staff is very knowledgeable, supportive and a real morale booster. The monthly support meetings for patients of NWWLS are very informative.. All the surgeons are top notch here. I've seen all three of them.. They have a very caring Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on staff who has had an adjustable gastric band and has maintained an over 140 lb weight loss for over 12 years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Northwest Weight Loss Surgery to my friends or family members...

Wonderful care and professional staff. Always available to answer questions and offer guidance. Top notch service and care. The team here has helped me achieve many goals and I have already had wonderful results beyond my expectations!

Melissa Burnside Via Google My Business

I started with Dr Michaelson here in March 2019, I was sleeved by him in October 2019. The processes that the insurance companies make you jump through are aggravating at best, but the staff at NWWWC are a phenomenal support. It's by far the best decision I made, and has been an excellent tool in my weight loss journey. The super support after your surgery is done is out of this world, the whole team really wants to see you succeed.

My visit to Northwest Weight and Wellness Center far exceeded my expectations. From the receptionist that greeted me and everyone in between I felt safe and encouraged. There was no judgment or eyebrow raising. At my appointment I was encouraged to view this step as the beginning of a new me and not to dwell on past failures in my weight loss journey. I highly recommend Northwest Weight and Wellness Center to anyone considering a change in their weight loss journey.

Debbie Whitney Via Google My Business

Dr. Michaelson and his staff have been absolutely amazing! From my initial appointment to the day of surgery, I have always felt like I was in great hands. The nursing staff after surgery was so kind and caring and both Dr. Michaelson and the anesthesiologist made me feel completely at ease as I was going in for surgery. I have had a couple of challenging days since my surgery and I never hesitated to reach out to NWWS. They have made my health and healing a priority. Their nutritionist, Nicole is also very patient and kind and takes time to make sure you understand every step of the pre-op and post-op diet. I strongly recommend NWWL to anyone considering bariatric surgery. I am so happy I chose them!

I highly recommend NWWC. The office is always welcoming with a great staff. I had liproscopic bariatric sleeve surgery, performed by Dr Choke. She and her team have been amazing through the entire process. Choosing the NWWC team will be a huge part of my success in my weight loss journey.

Northwest Weight and Wellness Center doctors’ and staff are amazing. I have been a patient there for around two years. They really care about your mental and physical well-being. They are always positive and helpful. My initial surgery went very well. I just had a hiatal hernia repair surgery performed by Dr. Michaelson. It went great as well. They have implemented a non-narcotic process for surgery and pain management because it helps with the healing process. It was amazing. I will be forever grateful for them because I now have my health in check as a result of becoming a patient there.
