My dermatologist referred me to Mark Pruzansky. I found the doctor clear, professional, friendly and informative. He explained what it was and why surgical removal was necessary. From pre-op, to the surgery itself, and post-op visits, he enabled me to follow through with recovery. Now, a month after surgery, the finger looks completely normal and is fully healed. I hope I do not need future hand surgery, but if I do, I'll not hesitate to contact Dr. Pruzansky.

Billing came with trumped up services which I didn’t perform. After calling them, they tried reducing the bill to pacify me but iinsisted on a true reflection of services. They refused, found out they sent my bill to collection. Will be following up with appropriate authorities & insurance company.

Dr. Pruzansky performed carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, a week apart and returned my painful, troubled apendages to comfort and function. There are no detectable scars.. an important plus as I understand from others, that scars can be a source of discomfort. I was referred to Dr Pruzansky by my internist/friend who assured me that the doctor was the absolute best.. and he was. As painter/photographer, it was important for me to know that my own hands..were “ in the best hands”.

Dr. Pruzansky is a compassionate and excellent surgeon. If I ever need anything else, I would only go to him. I was very upset and not prepared for my emergency surgery, but he metaphorically held my hand and could not have been more helpful or supportive. In addition,His office is run efficiently and shows respect for his patients., I feel so lucky that I was referred to him. I had excellent care, an optimal outicome and wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone !
