I would not recommend Dr. Preikaitis to anyone nor will I return for a follow up. I thought his bed side manner was poor. And prior to my procedure his hand was shaking. On top of that my follow up appointment which was suppose to be within 3 weeks was not scheduled until 2 months later with the NP. Unfortunately, his office is the only one covered under my insurance and they are 3 months out for appt. The office suggested I go to the ER if I need to be seen sooner.

A terrible, and actually harmful, experience over a period of nearly a year. He failed to do anything other than one exploratory test, tried one med, then left me to a colonoscopy prep every 4 Days (!!) and said see you in 6 months. VERY ill with severe constipation, ongoing nausea and vomiting. My PCP urgently got me into another GI who immediately got me into a colo-rectal surgeon who did an MRI and I have a “severe lg rectocyle” and will be having surgery. I could go on and on. Don’t go there

Beautiful facility and very friendly and professional staff. Dr. Preiksaitis is very thorough and took the extra time to answer my questions. I felt well taken care of and did not feel rushed through the process. This doctor has compassionate bedside manner and I highly recommend him.

Second very professional experience with Dr. Preiksaitis. Answered all my questions in a precise manner. He was quick and efficient, seemed to be in command, as I would expect. I have had some experience with this procedure and would not hesitate to recommend the Doctor and the Clinic.

Once was finally able to meet with Dr P I was happy, but the overall experience with this office was poor. It is very difficult trying to reach anyone on the phone - I have left several messages with no return calls - and when you do get someone, expect to be transferred several times. I felt very confident with Dr P, but gave a 2 stars because of the overall experience with the office.
