Great first visit! I was seen immediately after filling out my info and went straight in to see Dr Prokupek. He seems to be a very friendly, attentive guy which is important. He was professional and had good knowledge but wasalso laid back enough for me to feel comfortable talking about all I needed to. We talked through things and decided what was the correct course of action for my particular needs and I came away very happy with the result. I’m glad I found a doctor that’s going to work out. :]

Dr. Dale and his staff were fantastic and very, very thorough. He took his time to get all of the information about my symptoms and didn't push for unnecessary tests. He's very knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner, so Ihighly recommend! They also didn't make me wait long at all, so that's a huge plus as well.

Dr. Prokupek himself was great. However, my experience at the office was pretty terrible. I was greeted by an abrasive and unfriendly receptionist, and then sat in the waiting room until 40 minutes past my appointment time. I was then usheredinto 2 different rooms where I waited for another 30 minutes before being led into a 3rd room where the doctor was sitting. During this time, while I was describing my condition to a nurse (who didn't submit any info to the doctor, so I had the same conversation twice), another nurse barged in without knocking and summoned the nurse I was with, who left the room for several minutes. She returned as if nothing had happened and resumed our conversation, pulling off a latex glove as she entered the room. This kind of behavior is just unprofessional and made me feel very uncomfortable. Dr. Prokupek should really manage his office better and ensure friendly, professional behavior in order to make patients feel welcome, comfortable, safe and respected.

Love Dr. P - and Love the office. Everyone was super nice and everyone - especially Dr. P was so knowledgeable. I was looking for a new Primary Physician and I finally found him! Yay! In the last several years Ihave tried someone new every year and found a few to be distracted and brief, and another who was more interested in padding the bill for the insurance co. than actually checking me out. Dr. P took his time, answered all of my questions and I felt safe and cared for. 15 stars all the way. Thank You Dr. P's office!

Dr. Prokupek is great. His front office, however, is TERRIBLE and the reason I'm switching to another primary care physician. Here's why: Dr. Prokupek prescribed me two medications that require Prior Authorization (PA) from my insurance.In other words, I'm not approved for coverage until the PA is dealt with. But the front desk refuses to deal with PA's. They gave me a sob story about how they "don't have the man power" but they work with a pharmacy that will take care of it for them. The problem is -- the pharmacy is disorganized and uncommunicative. It's been a MONTH since Dr. Prokupek gave me my prescription and I still haven't been able to pick up my medication. So if you want to spend 8+ hours on the phone clearing up the "sorry we don't deal with PA's" nonsense from Dr. Prokupek's front desk, the disorganization of the pharmacy they slough the PA's off to, and all the general miscommunications that result when they deal with your insurance, then by all means -- this is your doctor.
