Bret Michaels at Top Facility in Arizona

4/30/2010 8:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bret Michaels isn't just in good hands -- he's being treated at one of the most prestigious neurological centers on the planet.

According to Bret's rep, Michaels is a patient at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix -- home of the world famous Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.

Bret's neurosurgeon, Dr. Joseph Zabramski, has also released a statement saying there's "no doubt" Bret's condition is "serious" ... but adds, "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable."

Dr. Zabramski says he's had several conversations with Bret since he first arrived to the center.

The doc claims Bret explained that he refused to succumb to the brain hemorrhage because he "did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

A press conference about Bret's condition will be held on Tuesday at 12 PM.

Confused this::: "did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

as in 'what family?' The news hasn't said anything about him being with family when this happened,nor did he when posting how much pain he was in.....
wishing him well though & hoping if he gets thru this he'll see it as a major wake-up call. He's near 50 yrs old, with health issues, so needs to just slow down a bit. & though his body looks great on the outside, goodness, it's been thru yrs of torture & I'm not talking just the skanks.

The simple true statement of Brets condition being serious is enough for all to know the facts. The rest is so ridiculous, I want all of you to stop insulting each and every member of those that have suffered this most critical life changing event that have lived from this injury and the families that are caregivers to them. Once you are unconscious from a MASSIVE brain hemmorage you do NOT get up on your own for family or any reason. I have never in my life, under any cir***stances of anyone and their condition, heard, seen or read about this nonsense of these crazy accounts. And no one will hear if drugs and drinking was the cause, they will hear the cause is unknown. Which sucks, this family due to his celebrity could help so many people if they come out with this and inform the public of this most serious matter.
Please put Bret on tv now, I would love to see this miracle, good speech, in good spirits, ready to sing and dance. This is more amazing then any miracle that has ever been in the history of the universe. Stop the reports, let us see this miracle. I love Bret, he is a favorite of mine, but, come one, truth is truth about the real status and outcome of this.

Good thing he doesn't look like an immigrant they would have ask for his papers when he got to the hospital. Lucky

If he does not have his papers in order he will go to jail.
So sad. Suppose he can sing his next concert to the inmates.
