Dr Pastrich is one of the best Doctors I have ever met. He has a calming way of dealing with his patients. Takes time to explain everything after your procedure. Great bedside manner! I have been a patient for over 20 years.

Dr Pastrich .for sure, saved my life. He requested tests no other doctor had, and it was because of his dedicated, my lung cancer was caught early while the tumor was still small and had not spread. I would 100% recommend Dr Pastrich to EVERYONE !!!
