I have been a patient of Dr Presant for 5 years. He is a very likable guy who gives you the time to explain your problems and is very thoughtful with his answers. Every Dr that he has referred me to is at the top of his game - Dr. Presant picks the best for his patients. He may come off as a little gruff, but he is only trying to get the best information that will help him help his patients. His support team is excellent with care and expertise. The doctor and support team act as one with each doing their job at a very high level.

Dr Presant has been my doctor for several years. He’s always been the one to figure out what’s going on with me when others can’t. He does have a “no BS” personality, and some might say a little rough around the edges. But, I encourage you to get to know him- he’s a friendly and caring person. I am always able to schedule apmnts w ease, his nurse Nancy, is absolutely incredible! They treat me like family and I appreciate both of them.

I have been going to see Dr. Presant for a couple of months, and I'll never go back. He is obtuse -- doesn't listen and is clearly just trying to get you in and out of his office -- makes excuses for not being able to do much at all to help you, and worse, just does not care a whit about anything but getting through his day so he can do whatever it is he does when he's not working. I have had excellent doctors in the past. But Larry Present is not a good doctor. I can't trust him to care one whit about my health or even to review my chart before he breezes in to see me so he can get me out of there as quickly as possible. I wouldn't trust him with your health, either.

Dr. Presant was thr on-call doctor when my mother left a message with the answering service. My mother is 93 years old and has dementia. Unbeknownst to me, she left my phone number with the service. When Dr. Presant called me he was rude, condescending and abrupt - refusing to take my mother's phone number so that he could call her directly. Luckily, I was able to reach my mother and her issues wasn't urgent. But what if it was? It was his attitude that was so upsetting to me. I guess some doctor's think they don't need to be polite!

Dr.Presant is very caring. He quietly listens to your concerns and then responds. He always asks how things have been to see exactly what brought you in. When is doubt he has no problems referring you out to a spacilaist. Have recommended several friend to him and they are all pleased with him.
