What People Say About Dr. Brian Pelczar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I can't praise this doctor enough. I visited him for recurring sore throats and ultimately a tonsillectomy. From my first appointment, Dr. Pelczar was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and took all the time needed to focus in and LISTEN to my concerns and discuss solutions for my issues. Reading accounts of others online who had undergone tonsillectomy's with different doctors, I was a bit apprehensive, but my experience with Dr. Pelczar was pleasant. From start to finish, Dr. Pelczar made sure I was comfortable, informed, and his talents in the surgical studio really showed based on the incredible speed and ease of my recovery. Luck had nothing to do with my amazing recovery, and all of the credit is owed to Dr. Pelczar. He is personable, relatable, and a no-nonsense kind of doctor that takes away any anxiety a patient might have about a stressful situation. I feel so much better now after having visited Dr. Pelczar, and I'd recommend him to anyone else without hesitation.

Had my sinus drained, septum fixed and Bone Spurs removed yesterday by Dr Pelczar. He is a wonderful surgeon. Explained everything well. The staff were very proficient also. I felt that I was well taken care of. No bleeding and very little pain today. I would highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. Pelczar has treated me twice. Both times have required sinus surgery but were different conditions. Each time has been a positive experience and he has taken time to answer questions that I may have and then asks if I have any further questions as a follow up. He is a very busy provider but takes time to make sure that his patients fully understand their condition and the process to help alleviate that condition whether it be surgery or some other treatment. Great surgery care!!

My son was treated fine before the tonsillectomy, but after the surgery we had 3 visits to ER for bleeding. On the 3rd visit, they discovered pneumonia. He was hospitalized. Dr. Pelczar was demeaning to him at hospital. He acted like he was being a big baby. He basically said that because of his prior opioid use (what!?!) he wasn't recovering. He had been started on oral antibiotic and Dr. Pelczar accused him of terrible oral hygiene when the thrush was caused by medication. He was awful

My father was having ear problems and doctor Pelczar treated him very poorly, degraded him. Told my father because he had small ear canals and didn't take care of them with prevention, he was in their office and they were busy, like it was my fathers fault for having ear problems! Hey Dr. Pelczar that is your job and profession you chose to bad they didn't teach bedside manners!!! If you are to busy I will help your business by telling everyone not to bother with your office!!

Horrible follow up!! My daughter had simple tonsillectomy and spent the next week bleeding non stop. After 3 ER Visits and another to a cancer specialist to treat her for dehydration I'm here to tell you go somewhere - where the follow-ups not just in his pocket! Also your survey needs to include follow up!
