My mother had to have a hip revision due to some shoddy previous care by another physician and Dr. Pressman was a God send for her. He has been meticulous in his evaluation and care for her doing his best to insure that she will have no further complications. He is compassionate and kind and we recommend him highly!!

He is the only Surgeon that would take a chance on me. He was able to fix my knee and then fix my quad tendon After I Tore it. Dr. Pressman is very good at what he does and he makes sure you understand everything that is going and he keeps you well informed.

Epitome of arrogance. This guy knows it all without listening to you. His Charleroi office staff looses your records when you want to see another doctor... then they treat you like YOU are the idiot.

Walked around the office like a Pittsburgh Steelers cheerleader instead of a professional Dr. Dressed in steeler garb getting ready for the steeler playoff game coming up that weekend. Pitiful ! He should have put that effort toward my office visit . I hope that he contacts me so I can tell him how I really feel ! !
