Dr. Prystowsky is the best! I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to be treated by him over the last few years. He's direct and honest, and very open about what the best course of treatment are. The man has a proven track record, and knows what he's talking about. I highly recommend him.

I would like to give Doctor Proystowsky a wonderful review! He has been my doctor for a few years now and he has helped me tremendously. I have Afib and after suffering for so long he was able to get my heart in rhythm. I have not had an episode in a long time. He changed my life! I was so scared to go anywhere or do anything because it would put me into an episode. I am now able to go places and do so many things. Doctor Prystowsky has a great bedside manner and listens to everything you say!

Don't subject yourself to this doctor's bedside manner (non-existent), unless your condition is truly serious. I'm told this doctor is the best in his field, but he is very condescending, abrupt and, apparently, quite uncomfortable with people taking notes during the appointment. He should be eternally grateful for his friendly and efficient office staff who offset his abrasive nature.

Dr. Prystowsky saved my Dads life. She had been to every specialist on the East Coast and West Coast. I did some research on Dr. Prystowsky before the visit and found out he was known around the world and has taught other Cardiologists on his ground breaking techniques. My Dad has a dangerous arrhythmia and we had to find answers and hopefully a cure. Dr. P and team mapped my Dads heart and did a cardiac ablation. With a one day hospital stay my Dad was released with no arrhythmias! A miracle

He should stick with teaching and research. Undoubtedly he is highly respected in his field, but his patient skills are absolutely appalling. Condescending, impatient beyond any level of courtesy, unable or unwilling to answer simple questions without displaying obvious annoyance: in a word, arrogant. Worst in-office experience I've ever had with a doctor.

Dr. Prystowsky has always been courteous and polite. He is direct and explains anything I don't understand. Most important to me is the fact that I trust him completely with my heart health and I know his qualifications and experience far exceed most in his field. I would readily recommend him to anyone who needs his services. He's the best!

Dr. Prystowsky is the most rude, obnoxious person I have ever met. I am sure he is a competent doctor, but, to me, there is more to the healing process than ability and knowledge. I think treating a patient with respect and politeness can instill confidence and peace of mind, both of which, Dr. Prystowsky doesn't!
