Dr. Pelz along with his staff made me feel assured and comfortable from the moment we met. Dr. Pelz articulated with care and clarity while making sure I (the patient) understood the surgical need, intended operation and the outcome. Most importantly, just before surgery began Dr. Pelz gave a last minute word of assurance and it was on time especially because my surgery was during the pandemic when No family was allowed in the hospital. I appreciate and yes, I recommend Dr. Pelz without hesitation.

I found Dr. Pelz to be an exceptional surgeon. He is extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, kind and made me feel as though I was his only patient. Everyone I encountered from his office was also knowledgeable, and did everything possible to accommodate my needs, fears and concerns.
