    Dr Rex Michael is an expert in the treatment of spinal conditions in both children and adults, having trained and gained considerable experience at some of the best centres in the UK for this work. I have sent my patients to him for an opinion on spinal deformity, and they have appreciated his expertise, attention to detail, thorough assessment, and clear and honest explanations. He Is calm and patient, taking time to reach his conclusions. I know he has rapidly made an impression in a short time in Dubai with patients and staff alike because of his excellent bedside manner. He takes his work very seriously but he is a very approachable and caring doctor too. I am very fortunate to have him as a colleague in this city.
