Review for Dr. Pecarsky

outstanding surgeon. I had many questions when my stitches were removed after an ankle surgery. He actually answered them all before I had a chance to ask. He was patient, kind, and personable. Highly recommend using him if given the chance

Review for Dr. Mashru

I would highly recommend Dr. Lipetskaia. I didn’t feel rushed at all and she talked through everything in meticulous detail. She was extremely knowledgeable and truly listened. Her office staff was top notch and very helpful.

Review for Dr. Kaufman

She is a godsend. Her expertise along with her personality made me feel like I finally found the right doc. Best I've ever met so far. She is one of the few that knows about my condition. And is taking action for the best care. Thanks.
