I have not seen or treated with Dr. Pietrucha in 20+ yrs. But this woman, in 1982, saw me, a 6 month old baby(at the time) with a brain tumor. When NO ONE would operate.... She said, let's go! And 38.5 yrs later. Im still here! With 2 sons of my own. I, literally, owe this woman my life! Dr Pietrucha, u are, and always will be my hero!

Best Doctor Ever. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be where I am right now in life. She helped saved my school life. She helped me with my Learning Disabilities. Now, I have my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration, working for a great company! Only issue that I have is that my age makes me be considered be an adult (I am about to be 30) and I need to see a new doctor for the purpose of my continuation of my learning disabilities and my prescription. Could someone please recommend me a doctor as wonder as Doctor Pietrucha? Thanks!

Dr. Pietrucha is the best in her field. I would recommend her to anyone I know because I used to be her patient. I am now 42yrs old and I started seeing her when I was in first grade.

One of THE best of not best in the industry. Always there when we need her help even if we just call to ask a question. She calls from her office at 7pm to speak to the parents regarding the concerns they have. We are lucky to have her as a member of our team, and truly appreciate the input that she has.
