Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Prystowsky is friendly, knowledgable, and approachable. She reviewed all options with us and tried to reduce any concerns. When our insurer would not cover one format of the prescribed drug we reached out to her office after 5pm and they made repeated efforts to locate the doctor so they could change the prescription and we could get an alternative format without waiting until the next day.
She is a world class Dermotologist!
The Dr was thorough and professional.
I love Dr P!!! She is the best, no question.
I like that she is risk averse, and very candid and takes her time in explaining the treatment and diagnosis and Misinformation on the Internet etc.
Always a pleasure seeing the doctor . The staff who walked me to the exam room introduced herself & was pleasant but the staff who walked in with the doctor did not speak. Of course the doctor introduced herself as she came in and continued throughout the exam to talk. I was dismayed there was a staff person in the exam room assisting the doctor who did not so much as say hello to me or introduce herself.
Dr. Prystowsky is a superb clinician, with a wonderful range of experience and lots to tools for helping people take care of their skin! She's great person!
