I was a patient of Dr. Palekar for 15 years before relocating. He was always very attentive to my overall health, careful and complete in his process of diagnosis, and always responsive to my needs and concerns. On more than one occasion, his care literally saved my life. When I was in the hospital under another physicians care, he still visited me and was warm and cordial. I highly recommend Dr. Palekar.

He's nothing more than a business man. He doesn't care about his patients. He will pretend he does, and even go as far as giving you his cell phone number but he will not be happy if you call. All he does is write prescriptions based on which companies give him kickbacks. He is miserable and moody. His staff used to be awful, but now they do seem to be much better. The office is newly refurbished but still seems somewhat dated and done very cheaply. Most patients are senior citizens.
