Patient Comments (2)
Beach Lake, PA |
I feel like Dr. Pugliese is not interested in doing his job. He spends maybe ten minutes with you and the whole time is on the computer, no eye contact, he never really performed an actual exam on me. He kept wanting to prescribe me medication after medication some with some serious side effects but with no explanation or information. It is impossible to get an appointment, supposed to be seeing him every 3-4 months and averaging every 9 months. I will not be returning as a patient.
Gained my confidence with his explanations and treatment available for my situation . Never felt rushed and left all of my appointments with a lot of information . A good listener to all complaints on health issues . Very polite .
