Patient Comments (4)
Dr. James Pritsiolas has exceeded my every hope and wish for a most competent and personally compassionate doctor. I am most fortunate in having been referred to him years ago.
in Union City, NJ |
No ability to communicate and very negative from the start. I had no confidence in this man. I can't believe Caremount has professionals of so low a standing. Yuch!
in Bayonne, NJ |
Dr. Pritseolas was one of four doctors who saved my 33 yr old daughter's life last week. She was in heart, kidney and respiratory failure with no hope of surviving. He is so caring, gentle, smart and amazing.
