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.

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.

Dr. Pelachyk is a pleasure to work with. On this visit, he performed some cosmetic removal of lesions on my face. It was relatively painless and they seem to be healing well. Thank You.
