I have been a patient of Dr. Pelekanos for 20 years. I love him and his staff! I have had a couple minor and 2 major operations and he is an awesome doctor always willing to take the time to listen to me and then give his professional opinion. I would recommend him to anyone! PS. He makes you feel so comfortable too!

Dr. Pelekanos has done two surgeries for me: , several months ago and one many years ago. He's very competent and things went smoothly and were scheduled quickly. He's quick witted and he buzzes around and has a lot of energy, so I can see why some people may think that he could brush them off. That's what makes me like him. He always has a joke to put me at ease; I was actually laughing at my follow up visit. Laughter is the best medicine!

I have been with this practice for 6 years and I love these doctors, nurses and office staff. I haven't had a negative experience. If I have a question, I'm given an answer. I'm never rushed out the door or made to feel unimportant. Amazing caregivers that I have recommended several times.

Rude, arrogant, condescending...by far the worst bedside manner I've ever experienced. He answered most of my questions with you'll just have to trust me, kiddo. I've been doing this for 30 years....that is if he could be bothered to answer me at all. I saw him on the worst day of my life, I'd gone for a routine ultrasound & was told my baby had died. He chose to do a surgical procedure to deliver he baby; after which he couldn't be bothered to answer the nurses calls (I had complications)
