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've had skin issues all my life &have been treated by several dermatologists in the USA & Canada. Dr. Pelachyk was the only one to cure the most serious problems & continues to help me for the past 30 years or so. I couldn't recommend him more. He's the best!

This area is very lucky to have such a highly trained and caring dermatologist in Dr Pelachyk! I like that he takes care of medical issues as he sees them. Even though that may put him off schedule I think it is in the patient ‘s best interest for him to do this. Thank you Dr Pelachyk and to his great, personable staff!
