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.

Having the experience of breast cancer, I am constantly worrying about a reappearance of cancer, so I appreciated Dr. Pelachyk's care, knowledge, and thoroughness. It is reassuring to know l am not showing any signs of skin cancer. I am easily embarrassed, but the Dr. and Katie made me feel more comfortable by being matter of fact and kind, and answering my questions.
