Dr Pesala is my favorite doctor. Very professional office, appointments always on time. Dr Pesala sees patients himself right away, there is no spending 20 min with the nurse, no filling out endless paperwork. He knows his patience, knows theirinsurances and is aware of what is covered or not covered by their insurance plans. He listens to the patient, thorough with the exam while being cognizant of patience's time. Best medical office.

Good guy. Knows his stuff. Very calm and soft spoken. Just wish they could do blood work onsite instead of sending you to a separate lab.

He was professional and polite, but I felt him distancing himself from me when I mentioned my drug and alcohol abuse issues for which I am seeking help, and I felt slightly belittled. Please note: this was all body language and he said nothing offensive.

Showed up 20m before my appointment and was taken in right away. Obviously, this doesn’t happen all the time, but it was very nice to be seen immediately. Dr Pesala was kind and listened to all my concerns and discussed solutionsto them. I never felt rushed to get through it and it was as pleasant as a physical can be! I am planning to continue to use him as my pcp.

Dr. Pesala stated that I had a throat infection, but didn't test me for it and prescribed antibiotics. A couple of days later, I found myself at City MD with a fever for the doctor to actually do the FIVE MINUTEtest and tell me I don't have a throat infection and the antibiotics were making me sick. Also, I scheduled a physical and got nothing of the sort.

He is extremely curt and pompous. Hermetical injustice, might I add? The office never answers its phones, and claim to never receive your voicemails. Its always in and out, mostly because he's unable to help with an issue I come inwith, and I am quickly out the door again with my co-pay. The only reason I go is because its so close to my home, the office is comfortable, and theres no wait time. but he's always in a sassy attitude kind of manner, that can come off rude if he was ever recorded.

Dr. Pesala is the PCP that I’ve been trying to find for so long! He has excellent bedside manner, listens very closely, and doesn’t make you feel rushed or impersonal, like so many doctors. My wait time was like, 2 minutesafter I turned in my paperwork—I was pleasantly shocked! Very clean, modern doctor’s office...everything about Pesala Medical was 5 Star. I have found my PCP. Even though I’m moving to Brooklyn very soon, I will travel from there all the way back up to Harlem to continue being Dr. Pesala’s patient.
