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.
