Dr. Pelachyk takes time to answer your concerns I have always found him to be kind and caring
in Lexington, MI |
Dr. Pelachyk has been my dermatologist for 15+ years and his approach of "If you find something bad, FIX IT IMMEDIATELY." works perfectly for me. He has successfully identified and removed two skin cancers (as verified by post surgery biopsies) from my face & head.
