Very Professional and polite makes sure you understand everything that is going on. Always makes you feel like you are the only patient when you’re at the appointment. Lots of one on one time and doesn’t hesitate to answer any questions.

Very smart and nice lady..... It's true, she does give you a hug. I had a TLH in Dec 8 2016. Dr. Pustilnik used her Da Vinci robot machine to do the surgery, I did not have to stay over in the hospital, and I was off from work for three week. The surgery lasted about 3 hours, she found new things that I was not aware was going on with me. After the surgery, I was a little sore, but walking I have since referred two other potential patients in hopes they too will get the best care

Dr. Pustilnik is a rock star!! I had uterine cancer but happily, it's gone now and no further treatment is required. The surgery went flawlessly and she and her team have gone above and beyond. Dr. Pustilnik performed the surgery at Clearlake Regional and I've had several office visits at her Main Street location. The staff in both facilities have been warm, highly skilled and a pleasure to deal with. They made this difficult situation go so smoothly. Five stars isn't enough, she's great!

Dr. Pustilnik performed a complete hysterectomy and removed a very large cyst AND a large tumor using the Divenchy method two weeks ago today. Amazing is how I feel!! I went back to work in week! I had very little pain, almost none. I went off the pain meds after two days!!! I made my own breakfast the day after surgery and trimmed rose bushes the day after that!! Dr. Pustilnik is gifted!! She is the Master of this procedure! Di Venchy Diva?!!!? I say Yes!!

I was extremely pleased with my first office visit. Tamara at the Front Desk was so cheerful and helpful, as was the rest of the staff that I encountered. Dr Pistulnik was wonderful; she was compassionate and caring and I did not feel rushed with my time with her. She also has a great sense of humor which really helped ease my stress. I trust her recommendation for my situation and feel that I am going to be well taken care of. Overall I was very happy with this facility.

I would highly recommend Dr. Pustilnik. She is compassionate and did a great job on my complete hysterectomy using the DaVinci Robotic method. She even gives hugs to her patients. A Dr with a good bedside manner. She gets two thumbs up from this patient.

I've never met a more rude or unsympathetic person in my life. I'm literally in shock right now. I'm even more shocked by all the great reviews that she received by other people on here. I've never been spoke to this way before. I'm seriously in shock.
