Dr. Prikhojan is an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner, with all aspects of his patients' care his foremost objective. Dr. Prikhojan takes time to understand any issues or concerns I may have and I trust him completely with my care. I have enthusiastically recommended Dr. Prikhojan to others and I will continue to do so. In my opinion, we need more health care providers like Dr. Prikhojan.

This doctor knew that I was allergic to a certain medicine, yet mistakenly prescribed the medicine and I need up having an allergic reaction to it because I made a mistake and took it. He failed to accept responsibility for his actions, and yet blamed the pharmacy. His billing department also wrote down my insurance wrong and never fixed that, making me responsible for over $300.00 out of pocket.
