I would give more stars if possible. His office staff was WONDERFUL. They helped my get a tele med appointment for my 18 yr old. I have been waiting until she turned 18 because of the wonderful things I heard about him. We have been to others before, but he was DEFINITELY the best!

Dr. Pellmar couldn't remember important details of my medical background despite my coming in regularly. I've also never had such a bad experience with office staff. I wouldn't bother with this office for a chronic problem like migraine.

My husband went to see this doctor ;( Very bad experience ... Waiting for more than an hour just to talk about basic information around 10 minutes ... Overcharging for an appointment $$$ ( we didn't have an insurance at the time ). After all, my husband went for a second opinion to the hospital and whatever Dr. Pellmar was recommended it was not necessary to do ... I regret I found this doctor, completely waste of money ;( Definately not recommending anybody...
