My husband saw Dr. Pullekines 3 days after an accident with one of his fingers. My husband and I were very concerned what the outcome would be. Dr. Pullekines was very professional from the first visit to the last. ( First office visit, Surgery, and 7 visits after surgery). We were very much please with Dr. Pullekines and his staff. We could not be more pleased with the whole experiences. And my husband's finger ?? Well let's just say he has one again. Thank you Dr. Pullekines & Staff.

I wouldn't send a toad frog to this Dr. He was the most unprofessional, disrespectful, quack I've ever seen. I left in the same pain in which I arrived. Refused to do any tests or offer any explanation as to why I can't move my wrist....
