Patient Reviews (8)
Atlanta, GA |
He did not bother to listen about my problem at all.He just spent around 15 seconds after my treatment and after the first treatment,(rubber band ligation) i had the same problem after 15 days and i went to him trying to explain him about it, he was not all interested in listening to me and just ready to do another rubber band ligation and he did it. All together, he just spoke with me for less than 30 seconds. very unprofessional.

I know some people would disagree with this review but here I go. I had been suffering for 10 years or more, been to 4-5 Drs and was still experiencing same issues. I thought for sure I was gonna die before I had heard about Dr. Petrofski. He saw me looked at my tests and WE both decided I needed surgery. If I hadn't had it I Would have died. My colon had collapsed on one side. So if I had not found him I wouldn't be here.

This is the last doctor that you need. Very very rude. More interested in more surgeries than the patient concerns. He dumps the patients after the surgery saying post care is not his area to deal with it. Everything he said before surgery compared to everything he did during the surgery and after surgery was completely opposite. Education is not the only important thing, it is attitude and bed side manners are most important. He is not a team player,every nurse and every hospitalist against him

Dr. Petrofski is an amazing doctor. He is a very honest physician, up front about procedures, risks, and etc. The work he does is amazing. I had a complete colectomy and the incisions are neat and orderly which allow me to feel very comfortable about wearing bikinis to the beach in the future. If you are looking for a colon doctor who is the best at what he does, Dr. Petrofski is for you.

Very rude especially when I back down on a surgery I was going to have done.
in Atlanta, GA |
Cannot be any worse. He does not care to know about your issues.. neither tries to understand nor can explain it to you. Seems just bothers about how much money he can get from your insurance.
in Atlanta, GA |
Worst Doctor ever. He did not bother to listen about mu problem. I kept telling him that I have already had surgery twice with no success, but he was not interested in history at all. It seemed like he just wants to make money by surgery, he does not care if your case will be a success or not.
in Cumming, GA |
The doctor himself is very rude. He did not even bother the history of my problem. It seemed like he just want me to get a surgery done by him so that he can make some money. I kept saying him that I had got the surgery done twice and it was not successful, but he just did not want to go in the details.
