Dr.Pelta one of the very few compassionate and extremely knowledgable phsicians in his field of medical expertise. Upon reading other individual's comments, it appears that the wait time prior to appointments is the biggest complaint. While I understand it can be a huge inconveince for many people, The time he spends with each of his patient's is extremely out of the norm for the majority of psychiatrists and it is imperative in terms of properly diagnosing and treating each of his patient's. In the event you have to wait, Dr.Pelta is well worth it!!!

Dr. Pelta is an excellent doctor. I was very unstable when I first went to him. I had just found stage 4 cancer successfully. Even though the cancer was in remission. In the process I had lost my job, my Mom had been terminally ill and passed away during my illness. I had been to several doctors and been prescribed serveral types of medicine. Dr. Pelta was the only doctor that actually gave me hope. My husband and I both felt such confidence as he was most professional and spent the time needed to get to know him. I call him my hero.

Dr. Pelta is an exceptional physician. He has a nice way of making you feel at ease during stressful times. I see Dr. Pelta periodically like I would my internist or cardiologist. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this physician. .

A sincere, kind, caring physician who is very knowledgable about his specialty. He cares, gives you his undivided attention and addresses your most pressing issues. They don't make doctors like this anymore. I highly recommend him and travel an hour to see him, which is well worth the effort!

I just tried to make an appointment as a new patient and the latest time they will take a new patient is 3:30. What do you do if you work?

I've been a patient for many years after seeing numerous psychiatrists and Dr. Pelta is the most caring and kind man I have worked with. He worked to get me on the right meds to ease my depression. I have recommended him to friends and coworkers.

He helped me immensely and is one of the best doctors I've ever come across. He has helped me recover from depression and saved me from ect treatments with his dilligence. I cannot say enough about this man. If you are looking for a caring doctor this is the one. As for the complaints about his staff, he has a new staff now. I found them to always be nice and caring.

Sep 6th, 2011

This is the office of a very kind Doctor (Phychiatrist). His staff is rude, uncaring and pushed me into a full blown panic attacj. How people like that work with people who have enough emotional problems is almost cruel. I am going back for 1 more appointment to get my medication, and then leaving the Practice after that. I was seeing the nurse practioner, she left and I am forced to see a new doctor. I have no job and no insurance. I have to pay the extra money to get an additional refill which had been promised to me by my prior clinician.

How do you pretend to be a caring and concerned physician when in the hospital, and then refuse a patient follow up care?? Office staff is extremely rude and show no empathy for the patient. Left NUMEROUS messages with office staff and never received a return call from anyone. Would not recommend this practice.

Extremely rude (sarcastic, passive aggressive, reprimanding, slamming down the phone!) office staff. Very traumatic experience trying to communicate with them. Is Dr. Pelta aware of how his staff treats his clientele?

I would take a greyhound bus 14 hours just for a 30 minute appointment with Ely... he is the best Psychiatrist I have been to in 13 years. Only HE could make a nutjob like me feel "normal"! Muchos Gracias!!!

by Paul R. on Dec 8th, 2009

I would like to first compliment Jackie at the front desk that works for Dr. Pelta. Excellent. She runs a tight ship!!Dr. Pelta, a great guy. Caring, good natured, caring. He talks to you from the heart. He remembers details of the good and bad about you and makes you stop and think about your actions. Reminds you that "a pill" is not always the answer. He has been a huge help to me. I respect him immensly. I dont like to drive and drive from Wilton Manors for my visit.

Dr.Pelta's office has an excellent Pscythiatric Nurse Practitioner named Karen McNeely that I highly recommend. You get the same evaluation and treatment for less cost out of pocket, which is a plus for those with a deductible.
