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.

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!

I have been seeing Dr. Pelachyk for years and enjoy seeing him. He is very thorough, friendly, cordial, professional, and caring. He explains things and recommends what to do. His Staff is outstanding and friendly. Waiting time short this time. I always expect to wait as I know that he treats patients right then as he sees them. Thanks much for your service to me.

When I arrived for my appointment, my wait time was only around 25 minutes, which these days isn't bad at all. The nurse taking my info in the exam room was very professional and pleasant. The Doctor followed shortly after and went through my exam quickly and administered my treatment in a reasonable time. Overall, my visit was very good and I have no complaints at all. It is a very caring group.

Dr. Pelachyk and his staff are both friendly and professional. The thing I like best is that they actually address me by my middle name -- the one I normally use -- instead of my difficult-to-pronounce legal first name. Why don't other medical practices have a method for doing this? My latest visit was a one-year checkup (all fine,) and they seamlessly addressed me by my preferred name. Thank you, Dr. Pelachyk and staff!

Dr. Pelachyk was very nice and professional and helpful! I had to come in with my screaming baby and he worked through it fast seeing my hurry to get her out of there and he reassured me it was no problem which made a new Mom feel a lot better. He was very good at explaining my diagnoses and treatment plans even with all that going on! I appreciate his patience with her and I very much. Thank you Dr. Pelachyk!
