When a person comes to my office, I want him or her to know that we care about them not only as a patient with a medical problem, but also as a person.

I was impressed with the efficiency and the fact that the doctor took care of matters immediately and did not have me come back for countless visits. Thanks

What an amazing dermatologist! I found Dr Pelachyk very knowledgeable but also very caring and compassionate. We had to wait awhile to be seen, nearly an hour past our appointment time BUT I immediately understood when I saw how much time he spent taking care of my 14 year old son. We were not rushed through like most doctors. Highly recommended 👍

He has always taken his time with his Assessment and letting me know my options. Very professional as well. I do like how he will take care of any skin issues that same visit instead of making another appointment.

Dr. Pelachyk is a wonderful doctor. He is very caring and considerate. A very down-to-earth personality that always makes me feel very comfortable, like he's more than my doctor but my friend. I enjoy the friendliness of his staff, too. I give them a 5 star rating.
