The staff should learn to introduce themselves and what their role is at the office. Dr. Pehoushek should explain what he is doing and why. I had to ask the questions to get the answers. Aside from that, definitely recommend this doctor.

He had a great sense of humor which calmed my nerves. He explained what he was going to do and what it would feel like. He told me not to be afraid to ask him to stop the treatment if itwas uncomfortable and we would take a short break. This was probably the best experience at a doctor I have ever had.
