I went Dr. Petchenik for a sinus, ear and throat problem. After waiting 40 minutes, he was in such a hurry to rush out of the room he did not check my ears. After asking the nurse to have him come back, I was told to make another appointment which would be in a few weeks. Very bad experience!

Dr.Petchenik is a extremely talented surgeon. I am very grateful that I was able to have such a wonderful,kind and thorough doctor do my Parathyroid surgery. Dr P was always patient and answered all my questions in a easy to understand professional manner. From Pre-op to post op I always felt that I was in very capable hands!

I am having trouble with their billing department. First they required me to pay my entire max out of pocket expenses up front and then they did not file the insurance claim (now 2 weeks late). I am now being required to pay the hospital and remaining bills that same amount because insurance doesn't know I've paid it already. It's a big headache for me and once they charge the insurance company I will have to wait for a refund from them. If they require prepayment, they should be the first claim filed, not the last. Do Better.

Dr. Petchenik is my savior! I love how compassionate he is and also how he gives it to you straight and to the point. I am amazed how wonderful I feel after years of suffering my E Tube dysfunction and multiple temp tubes that left a hole in my ear drum. He will be my life time ENT! Thank you so much for giving me my life back Dr. P!

Dr. Petchenik was very thorough with his exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan for my deviated septum enlarged tonsil and tonsil stones. Post surgery he checked on me and follow up appointments went well. Highly recommend for septoplasty and tonsillectomy procedures.

Dr Petchenik saw my son who apparently had ear infection, however we were over and over told by our primary care physician that there was nothing to worry about, "let's try yet another generic antibiotic" - while his condition was visibly progressing to worse. Dr Petchenik in 10 minutes saw the actual problem, and rushed him to the surgery. In several more hours the infection would penetrate ear drum and reach the brain causing irreversible damage or death. Saved his life.

I was sent to Dr. Petchenik as a consult to look at a bump on my nose. The office was nice, the appointment was easy to schedule and took place on time. I was in-and-out of the office in under 15 minutes after having ample time with the doctor to address my concerns No procedures were conducted and he recommended that I consult a dermatologist instead of him. My poor experience began when I found out that I was billed over $350 for this visit.

I waited in Dr. Petcheniks office for 20 minutes. I tried to explain to him my symptoms, but he would constantly talk over me. He was typing so fast and talking so fast that I actually started having a vertigo attack (due to my inner ear problem). It seemed as if he wanted nothing more then to have me out of that room as soon as possible. One of the worst medical field experiences of my existence. He then called to tell me, nothing he could do for my problem. Bought a Ear popper and was fixed.
