According to his website, Michael ran his own private practice at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach for 12 years.
The Miami native also worked as a clinical instructor and faculty member for the physician assistant program at Barry University and Miami Dade College.
What did his wife say on her Facebook post?
“He was vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine at MSMC on December 18, 3 days later he saw a strong set of petechiae on his feet and hands which made him seek attention at the emergency room at MSMC.
“The CBC that was done at his arrival showed his platelet count to be 0 (A normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter of blood.),” wrote Michael’s wife.

“He was admitted in the ICU with a diagnosis of acute ITP caused by a reaction to the COVID vaccine. A team of expert doctors tried for 2 weeks to raise his platelet count to no avail.
“Experts from all over the country were involved in his care. No matter what they did, the platelets count refused to go up.
“He was conscious and energetic through the whole process but 2 days before a last resort surgery, he got a hemorrhagic stroke caused by the lack of platelets that took his life in a matter of minutes,” Neckelmann explained.
Michael’s wife went on to explain how her husband was a “pro vaccine advocate,” however she believes that the jab is not good for everyone and urged people to understand the side effects that could arise from the shots.
“Do not let his death be in vain please save more lives by making this information news,” she wrote.
What was Michael’s cause of death?
The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office is still investigating Michael’s death.
The Florida Department of Health and The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are also investigating the doctors cause of death.
Pfizer said in a statement to The Sun on January 7: “Pfizer and BioNTech are aware of the death of a healthcare professional sixteen days after receiving a first dose of BNT162b2.
“It is a highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.”

Despite Neckelmann’s claims, Pfizer doesn’t believe Michael’s death has “any direct connection to the vaccine.”
The pharmaceutical company said an active investigation into the case is underway.
“There have been no related safety signals identified in our clinical trials, the post-marketing experience thus far or with the mRNA vaccine platform,” the company’s statement read.
