What People Say About Dr. Mario Pruss, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Pruss is excellent with adolescent (young adult) as well as older adults (unclear why he only has under 18 on this site). Dr. Pruss maintains the intellectual curiosity to research complicated conditions (medical and psychiatry in my case) plus teaches my daughter and I about our medications, usages, side effects and has provided me with peer review articles and professional journal findings to assist me/our treatment. He is gifted with this education, non-judgemental, and is not phased.

I felt worse after seeing him. Found him to be patronizing. I won't be back.
