Wonderful. Got me in right away for an urgent apt. but i waited close to an hour

I offer this review as a patient, the wife of a patient, and as a Registered Nurse (RN). Dr. Paslidis (Dr. Nick to his patients) is an excellent communicator, teacher, clinician, and diagnostician. A passion for excellence, he leaves no stone unturned in his meticulous review of past medical records and current test results. An active listener, Dr. Paslidis takes the time to understand the concerns and explain his assessment, often drawing diagrams to teach and inform the patient.

Great Doctor. Brilliant education (Harvard) and actually spends time with and listens to patients. Not the typical assembly line experience!

His basic office visit fees are over the top and amount to gouging. Trying to get his office staff to speak intelligently about his fees and make adjustments based on their word, is impossible. I would never go to this office, unless he were the only one in within an hours drive! They even justified their exorbitant fees by saying, medicare sets that fee! (An outright lie and cop out.)
