Rocker Bret Michaels has left a Phoenix hospital and is on his way to a better health after suffering a brain hemorrhage in late April, Michaels' doctor said Tuesday as he forecasted a 100 percent recovery for the former Poison frontman.

Michaels, 47, left St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix and is now resting in stable condition, People magazine reported Dr. Joseph Zabramski announced at a press conference Tuesday.

Zabramski did not disclose when Michaels left because of privacy laws but did say the "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant would make a full recovery and was improving each day.

"He's improving and I expect him to continue to improve," Zabramski said.

"I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery. He's just one of those lucky people -- 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities," he said.

Michaels checked into the hospital April 21 after a painful headache that eventually turned out to be a brain hemorrhage.

Doctors also found last week that Michaels was suffering from a side effect called hyponatremia, which made the singer more vulnerable to seizures.

It was unclear whether Michaels had returned home or whether he planned to return to "Celebrity Apprentice."
