by Maureen Mallon in West Chester, PA | Jun 22, 2016 on Jul 8th, 2016

I have a Health Advocate through my employer who recommended Dr. Pribitkin. Dr. Pribitkin performed my thyroid nodule removal surgery 3 weeks ago. I had never had surgery before and was very anxious. After meeting Dr. Pribitkin the first time, I knew I was in good hands. He is an expert in his field, compassionate and kind. My surgery went smoothly and I was back to work in one week! You can't even see my scar. I would highly recommend Dr. Pribitkin to anyone.

by Carol A. on Jun 15th, 2016

I was referred to Dr. Pribitkin for an endonasal surgery to resolve a chronic tearing problem with my right eye caused by a blocked tear duct. After almost 4 years of unsuccessful attempts to resolve this condition, I am so grateful to have found Dr. Pribitkin. My consultation visit with him completely reassured me that I was making the right decision to have this endonasal surgical procedure. The evening before my surgery, Dr. Pribitkin called to ask if I had any questions regarding the DCR procedure. This kind gesture greatly helped to reduce my pre-op anxiety. The surgery was completely successful and for the first time in almost 4 years, I have no tearing from the affected eye. Dr. P is both a skilled surgeon and a very kind, caring doctor. I could not ask for a more positive surgical experience or outcome and would highly recommend Dr. Pribitkin.

by Matt Hutchinson on Apr 4th, 2016

I had to have a parathyroid gland removed. It was a rare case where the gland had moved near my collarbone. Dr. P knew it right away, and was able to avoid an unnecessary second cut, and possibly saved my life. If you need your parathyroid removed, do not go anywhere else. He has done over 1,000 of these, and thankfully I found him for my surgery.

Patient - Thyroid Surgery show details Patient - Thyroid Surgery
by Laura Gehring on Feb 24th, 2016

My endocrinologist suggested I have a nodule on my thyroid removed and referred me to Dr. Pribitkin. The nodule was fairly large, yet was benign and posed no real immediate or long term threat, so I was unsure if I wanted to move forward with a surgical procedure. From my first consultation with Dr. Pribitkin through my last follow up visit, I have been nothing but thrilled with my experience. Dr. Pribitkin and his team made me feel comfortable, confident in their skills, and I had a smooth quick recovery. It has been 6 weeks since my surgery and the incision is healing great, and better yet, all my thyroid levels remained normal! I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon, nurses, or entire hospital staff!

Do not hesitate to see this doc (a rare find) show details Do not hesitate to see this doc (a rare find)
by Dr. Melissa Shelly Pektor on Jan 13th, 2016

I found Dr. Pribitkin on a recommendation from a doctor friend as I was looking for someone to repair my son's deviated septum and cosmetically fix the nose alignment. Initially reluctant to deal with a Philadelphia "machine" as was my experience a few years ago at CHOP, I took my son to see Dr. Pribitkin for our initial consultation and was glad I did. He was so kind, soft-spoken, seemingly honest and knowledgable. He gave me his email and was available for questions any time. We came back a few weeks later for the surgery. Everything went smoothly and Dr. Pribitkin went to great lengths to allay any of our pre-op concerns and endure further questioning by my husband and me. Surgery went smoothly and the hospital staff was the best I have ever experienced--completely attentive and caring. They took excellent care of my son. The surgery was a great success--my young man can breath clearly again. We had two follow ups (one with a colleague of the doctor as he was out of town and I was on a time constraint due to son's school schedule) and the last one with Dr. P. They were botyh great but I'd have to say Dr. Pribitkin had the most time and was so lovely and caring. My whole family is crazy about him ...especially my son, the patient. I would never hesitate to return to this hospital especially under the care of this stellar physician.

I recently had a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Edmund Pribitkin. The whole process was very smooth and everyone was extremely professional. The wait time in the office was minimum, especially for a specialist. The office staff was very courteous. Dr. Pribitkin was very professional, knowledgeable and put my fears at ease. He spoke to you directly and in layman's terms. You never felt rushed. The night before my surgery he even called to see if I had any questions! I had the surgery performed at the Jefferson Outpatient Surgery Center and had a very good experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Pribitkin and the Jefferson Outpatient Surgery Center.

I had an excellent experience choosing Dr. Pribitkin to perform my septorhinoplasty and turbinectomy. He is a very kind man who is also extremely talented at what he does. I can finally breath and love the way my nose looks. He was very thorough in explaining everything to me before and after the procedure and answering all my questions. He is an excellent doctor, I am very happy with my results.

By the time I got to Jefferson I was in deep trouble. I had been to two other hospitals down the shore with a ruptured artery in my head and both had been unable to stop the bleeding. Dr. Trot, Dr. Pribitkin and his staff were swift and professional at performing a successful surgery saving my life. They are A1 with me. Would highly recommend Jefferson and their fine Doctors for health care.

I trusted him and the thyroid went ok.. but the parathyroid needs a resection and ive been pushed around since the testing that showed my calcium is high and other levels etc... I'm in so much bone pain and he send me to his endo.. which shoved me back to him.. and he sent me back to prit... so no one cares.. while I suffer.. I had to go somewhere else.. while I wait for another parathyroid surg... more testing.. more pain.. etc... I'm Shocked...as I trusted him and liked him.

Dr. P. Is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met! The staff was wonderful also. He remembered all of my concerns and all were properly addressed the day of surgery. The wait time for each visit was less than 15 minutes. My surgery was set up quickly and his office handled insurance red tape as well. I was very happy when he called me the night before surgery because I did have a question which as it turned out he had already addressed! Highly recommend him if you are having parathyroid surgery!

Revision Rhinoplasty with EXCEPTIONAL Results show details Revision Rhinoplasty with EXCEPTIONAL Results
by Joe on Apr 10th, 2013

Dr. Pribitkin is easily the most talented, kindest, and most professional physician I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had undergone a septoplasty and rhinoplasty by a different surgeon to correct a broken nose several years before going to Dr. Pribitkin. After my first surgery I was very unhappy with the aesthetic result and my breathing was significantly worsened. After talking over revision surgery with Dr. P, he was confident that he could address all of the problems I was facing, aesthetically and functionally. I'm just over one week out after my surgery and the results have far exceeded my expectations. He corrected my breathing, allowing me to sleep much better, my throat no longer drys out when I'm asleep, and I no longer wake up swollen in the morning. Aesthetically he has created an truly PERFECT nose (and I'm a perfectionist) that looks completely NATURAL, it's better than the most ideal nose I could have imagined on my face prior to the surgery. Revision rhinoplasties are incredibly challenging, especially mine since I had broken my nose first. Dr. P not only fixed every problem I had with my nose, but went above and beyond. In my follow-up appointment, he explained exactly how he addressed every problem I had and was just as happy as I was to see that it had turned out so great. To say I am happy with choosing him as my surgeon is an understatement, I don't have the words to describe how highly I think of this Dr. and how pleased I am with my results and my treatment. Going through with this was very stressful since my first experience with another doctor was so disappointing, but Dr. P helped guide me through it every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anybody considering any sinus surgery, he's simply a genius!

Ridiculous Wait Time show details Ridiculous Wait Time
Feb 1st, 2013

I had my first (and last) appointment with Dr Pribitkin this morning. The appointment was scheduled for 8:20AM, and I arrived 5 minutes early. I was not seen by the doctor until after 10:20AM. I understand that doctors often run behind, but I can't imagine how he could possibly be 2 hours behind when I was most likely one of his first patients of the day. He seemed like a perfectly nice guy and doctor, but only spent about 5 minutes with me after making me wait for 2 hours. I find this completely unacceptable.

Dr. Pribitkin is an excellent surgeon and very nice and caring. But, I did not like the fact that his nurses called me back if I had a problem. One of them actually said to me that Dr. Pribitkin wouldn't know the answer to my question. How dare she assume that! I also had to wait 3 hours for a call from the nurse. I would rather have waited to talk to Dr. P.

Dr. Pribitkin made sure he explained to me the details of the surgery. He was very professional. He didn't push me for having the surgery done. He warned me about the risks. This review is based on a consultation for a septal perforation. I'd highly recommend Dr. Pribitkin.

Dr. Pribitkin is the embodiment of what a physician and surgeon should be. He is bright, has superb clinical, diagnostic and surgical skills and is a very accomplished person academically. All that is combined with a wonderful empathic, gentle, kind, soft-spoken, patient, understanding, and compassionate personality and soul. There are not too many doctors like him in this world. I had sinus surgery with him a few days ago, but he diagnosed my problem in one visit after a complete examination and looking at the CT scans. The surgery only confirmed his diagnosis. I had the minimal discomfort and can't tell enough about how pleased I am and feel that I will be back to 100% in a few days after months of suffering and anxiety. He was supportive throughout the process from setting the appointment to phone call the night before surgery, to visit just before the operation and to feedback after the surgery. Jefferson ENT department should feel blessed to have him as a Professor and surgeon there. God bless his soul.

I've never seen a specialist before, and I figured if I had to wait up to an hour to see a family physician--it would take hours to see a specialist. Turns out I was called in before I'd even had a chance to finish filling out my medical history! Dr. Pribitkin was professional, courteous, empathetic and gentle and the staff was great. What a pleasant surprise.
