When it was confirmed that I did have melanoma, Dr. Pelachyk immediately got things going for what was to come. I am very grateful for his knowledge and expertise in sending me to the right place for treatment.

Leave you to long sitting on the table waiting for DR instead of waiting to call you back when DR is ready for you . Chairs in waiting room a lot more comfortable then the table !!

Dr. Pelachyk has been my dermatologist for many years. He is thorough, clear with instructions, and friendly. Office staff is very efficient and friendly. Scheduling is getting a bit difficult, as he's reduced his hours to two days a week. I wonder if he'll bring a new physician to the office to pick up some of the extra patient load.
