Outstanding physician!! Dr. Pianko's bedside manner is unmatched for caring/professional demeanor!! His office is fully staffed with majority of services within. I have recommended numerous patients and they are still with him!
Dr. Pianko is the best doctor I have ever had. He is attentive, caring and medically skilled. I trust his opinion. He is away for the weekend but that does not stop him from returning a phone call or getting back to you. I have been an RN for over 30 years and I am very selective. If you want a wonderful physician who genuinely cares about your well being, Dr. Pianko is it. You can’t do any better.
I was just speaking with one of my clients this morning and she was telling me how happy she was with the care her father received when he was in Dr. Pianko's care. She said she always knew how competent he was; but the thing that stood out was how well Dr. Pianko treated her father and how her father felt after meeting with Dr. Pianko. This is important for any daughter (and especially one helping from out of town).
The best team ever and Dr. Pianko #1. Never felt safer and so cared for. Thank you guys. -
The best physician I have ever encountered in my long career representing medical professionals! Dr. Pianko is like family: Caring, thorough, takes time with everyone. Great staff. He loves his patients, and they love him.
