Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have never dealt with a less professional physician. He lacks empathy and rushes people out the door, belittles symptoms and ailments, if not dismissing them altogether, and is impossible to get ahold of when needed. It is impossible to refill prescriptions, I spend days every month calling and calling trying to get my refill sent to the pharmacy, the pharmacy would send mutiple requests, and he would not fill them. Not that it should matter - but this is for an SSRI, which you can't just not take and be okay. If not for the convenience of this practice I would've left years ago, and frankly I tolerated it for too long. It's easy to convince yourself as the patient that you're over-reacting to a negative experience with a doctor - don't do that. This is a bad doctor.

Love my PCP!
I have been going to Dr Pransky for over 30 years! I dread the day he retires. My whole family goes to him as well. I disagree with the comment on his office staff being pushy. His office staff is awesome! BIG shout out to Anne and Elaine who Ive known since I was a kid! Always a pleasure dealing with them. Also for the comment on running out of medication - all you have to do is call and let him know you need a refill! Ive never ran out of one medication and I am on quite a few! I feel so comfortable when going for my visits! Dr Pransky and whole staff are awesome!

Constantly has pushy secretary that continues to pressure everyone to come in the office even though they do zoom calls. And let’s his patients run out of meds, meds they can’t run out of... that would make them suicidal potentially

I have been a patient of Dr Pransky for greater than 30 years. He is extremely knowledgeable, listens to what you have to say, explains everything so the patient can understand, follows through tests, and is very personable. I highly recommend him

Both him and the nurse practitioner are very rude and have no compassion for their patients they treat you like a drug addict if you are on pain meds and as soon as you dont do what you r told they drop you and take your meds away from you I would not recommend going to him or his nurse practitioner

I strongly disagree with the criticism of Dr. Pransky’s office staff. In my twenty -five years as a patient all my family has been treated with care and compassion. The staff is very familiar with the patient’s needs and tries to accommodate in the best way possible. I would recommend that if you had a communication problem then talk to the person and see if it can be resolved.

The nurse and nurse practitioner were friendly and very helpful. But the office staff was very rude and unhelpful. I went up to the window and the lady refused to acknowledge me for a few minutes. I don't know if I would go back again because of the poor administrative service and the uncomfortable feeling they gave, although the health professionals were good.
