My wife and I have both been patients of Dr. Pulerwitz, and we both consider him our favorite physician. He truly listens to our concerns, and has provided excellent treatment. We moved 500 miles away but still return for consultations.

After suffering with open ulcers on my lower legs and spending a half year with various wound specialists, Dr. Pulerwitz prescribed a diuretic which closed the ulcer in 2 weeks. I would definitely recommend him. In addition, his follow-up care is wonderful David Cooper
