About Me

Hazar Michael, MD, has expertise in all aspects of therapeutic endoscopy, including endoscopic ultrasound, highly therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, luminal stents, and endoscopic treatment for Barrett's esophagus. In addition to her position at Summit Medical Group, Dr. Michael is Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick.

Before joining the Group, Dr. Michael was Director of Endoscopic Ultrasound at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, both in New Brunswick. She also has been Director of Endoscopy and Endoscopic Ultrasound at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the State University of New York School of Medicine in Stony Brook, and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia.

Dr. Michael is the author or coauthor of articles and abstracts on topics in gastroenterology, which are published in prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Endoscopy, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and Gastroenterology and Hepatology. She has conducted medical grand rounds and delivered local and regional invited lectures in her field. Dr. Michael is a member of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and American College of Gastroenterology. She is a recipient of the Damascus University School of Medicine Academic Excellence Award and Albert Einstein School of Medicine Outstanding Teacher Certificate of Distinction. Dr. Michael is featured in New Jersey Monthly "Top Doctors" listings.

As a young girl, Dr. Michael observed the skill and kindness of a doctor who made a house call to help her ailing brother. Deeply moved by the experience, she knew then that she wanted to be a doctor. "When I care for a patient," Dr. Michael says, "I consider all aspects of my patient's health, including his or her psychological needs. It's especially important to me that my patients feel at ease as I examine, diagnose, and treat them."

When she is not working with her patients, Dr. Michael enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 daughters. She is an avid reader and cook.
