My partner and I have been going to this practice for almost 16 years. I am a patient of Dr. Prelutsky's and he doggedly helped me figure out a very complicated set of problems and didn't stop testing and referring until we had answers. I feel that I can be totally candid with him and always appreciated that he is never rushed with me. There are a lot of comments regarding the desk staff, and while that has been spotty over the years it has gotten much better.

I would be very cautious about visiting this physician. I found him rushed and overbearing. Sometimes I would leave the office confused. My questions were not really addressed but a lot of test were ordered. I never felt in the loop. HIs bedside manner was what I could best describe as cool and impersonal. Overall, I just was very disappointed due to his lack of communication, knowledge and with the feeling I was railroaded out the revolving door. Of course, after my co-pay was collected!

Doctors/medical staff are proficient, but reception desk/appointment staff are lousy. I have 10+ years of experience with Dr. Prelutsky, he is a very good physician. The support staff are another story. I have been calling the office each morning of the last three business days, but I have not received a call back yet. I guess I will head to the urgent care...

I feel Dr. Prelutsky is a wonderful physician but it seems like my blood pressure rises every time I have to deal with the office staff. My partner and I have both left messages about appointments in the morning and never received calls by the end of the day. When we have called regarding side effects to medicines we have gotten no response from the Doctor because he never seems to receive messages. Since he is a fine doctor he should just bite the bullet and hire well trained office staff.

It is a busy office, and they make you feel how busy they are. The desk staff is the worst - no return on calls, hurried behavior. Managers don't pay attention to the human side of the office. Technicians are competent, but they share too much personal detail, as at a salon (I'm so tired!). Finally, while Dr. Prelutsky is very good, he does sometimes speed through things and often seems to ignore issues mentioned. The other doctor has been heard shouting profanity at staff.
