Dr. P and his team were very thorough, informative, and comforting! I am only two days post op but I can already breathe better and see the difference in my nose. They all made the experience very calming and I had very little to no anxiety (unusual for me) the day of my procedure. Very satisfied with the experience and excited to see the final results. Recovery has been smooth and 100 percent worth it, thus far. Highly recommend the team at Jefferson- the residents in the OR were great, too! Doctor called me personally the night prior to surgery!

Dr. Pribitkin is an excellent surgeon with great bedside manner. He removed half of my thyroid along with a 4 cm nodule that we thought was benign. It ended up being a carcinoma. At the post op appointment he spent a great deal of time answering my questions and reassuring me. I left feeling much better about my health and my situation.

Dr. Pribitkin is an excellent surgeon. He's a leader in his field in the OR and out. Never had a doctor with such warm bedside manner. I really felt he had my best interest at heart. If you need ENT surgery, I'd highly recommend him.

Dr. Pribitkin is the true professional surgeon. I have nothing but the most positive opinions about this man. He knows his business, and you will be lucky to have him treat you if you have such problems as I had, with my perforated septum.

After just one office visit and a consult with my Doctor at Wills Eye Hospital, Dr Pribitkin was able to diagnose treatment for a chronic infection I had been suffering from for over 2 years. Surgery was an easy process to schedule, was performed perfectly and best of all, my infection is gone.. His compassion was evident before, during and after surgery. I am incredibly grateful to have my quality of life returned and recommend Dr. Pribitkin as a knowledgeable and considerate physician.

Dr. Pribitkin is very kind, warm, patient, and knowledgeable. He genuinely cares about his patients. He thoroughly explains everything from diagnosis to treatment plan and after care. If a matter is beyond his area of medical expertise, he will tell you so and recommend another doctor to provide treatment. After an unpleasant experience with another ENT, who failed to mention a nodule on my thyroid that turned out to be cancerous, I am truly grateful for Dr. Pribitkin. He one of the very best.

Dr. Pribitkin was an excellent doctor for my Thyroid Surgery. He actually called me the night before my procedure to put me at ease and made me feel comfortable prior to and after the operation. He takes his time to with each patient and that makes all the difference. His bedside matter is excellent!

I have a Health Advocate through my employer who recommended Dr. Pribitkin. Dr. Pribitkin performed my thyroid nodule removal surgery 3 weeks ago. I had never had surgery before and was very anxious. After meeting Dr. Pribitkin the first time, I knew I was in good hands. He is an expert in his field, compassionate and kind. My surgery went smoothly and I was back to work in one week! You can't even see my scar. I would highly recommend Dr. Pribitkin to anyone.

In October, 2015, Dr. Pribitkin participated in my dacryocystorhinostomy surgery, essentially building me a new tear duct and curing my watery eye! I would not hesitate to highly recommend this surgeon. I found him to be highly skilled, professional and genuinely caring. and, since my surgery, no more tears!
