Q&A: Dr. Bishoy Michaels, DO

Dr. Bishoy Michaels, D.O. earned his medical degree from the University of New England and completed a fellowship in Interventional Pain at the Tufts’ St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Boston. He is skilled in a variety of minimally invasive interventional pain management therapies.

Q: What drew you to the field of pain management and/or anesthesiology?

A: I love being an anesthesiologist. When the COVID pandemic started, I was an anesthesiology resident and my team and I were at the epicenter of patient care. We were able to take care of critical patients and save many lives. I decided to pursue Interventional Pain Medicine because I have a close family member who has experienced chronic pain. It made me realize how complex pain is and how devastating it can be to someone’s life. The level of challenge and reward that comes with treating each patient really drew me in.

Q: Is there a particular treatment or technology on the horizon that has you excited about the future of pain management and opportunities to help your patients?

A: Pain medicine is a very complex field, but its future is bright. The technologies are becoming smarter, safer, and more effective. That means I can offer my patients a wide range of treatment options, including many minimally invasive procedures that are safe and very effective in providing them with the relief they need.

Q: What gets you excited about working at NSPC?

A: I’m excited about working with like-minded individuals who value patient care. It’s also wonderful to be part of a large network of doctors who share their knowledge and experience to improve patient outcomes and provide the best care for our patients.

Q: What do you enjoy the most about your job? What drives you to do it?

A: With each patient, when we make a care plan, it’s a journey that we walk together. Seeing my patients regularly and noticing the big difference we are making in their lives is the most satisfying part of my job.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time (hobbies, interests, etc.)

A: I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures. In my free time, I also enjoy outdoor activities such as tennis, camping and hiking, as well as spending time with my family and friends.

Q: What would you do for a living if you weren’t a doctor?

A: I would likely pursue a career involving space exploration such as astrophysics or engineering. I think it would be amazing to try to answer the biggest questions and be at the front of exploring far out into our universe.

Q: What is your philosophy about doctor-patient interaction and patient-centered care?

A: I believe doctor-patient relationships are about mutual trust, effective communication and realistic expectations so we can each set the tone appropriately. The best patient relationships I’ve experienced were centered around these values.
