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

I was # 0006 for an ablation Dec 1988. He saved and changed my life forever. Open chest and all:-) Thank you so much! Marylou (Leary) Kolosci He told me what was wrong finally and that I wasn't crazy

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.
in Indianapolis, IN |
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!
in Bloomfield, IN |
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!
