I have been with Dr. Pelligra for over 20 years. I am long overdue in paying my respect to this gentleman. He is a wonderful, caring, thoughtful physician. After two late term miscarriages, I was able to deliver my son successfully, although prematurely. Due to the many problems I had, I truly believe that if not for Dr. Pelligra my son would have been stillborn, as with the case with my other earlier pregnancies. During this pregnancy my perinatologist dismissed symptoms and complaints I made during a visit. Fortunately I had an appointment with Dr. Pelligra the next day and he immediately examined me, got me into the hospital and took me to surgery preventing the delivery of my son at 22 weeks. I felt compelled at this time to write this comment because I went to see him for my annual exam recently. I was the last appointment of the day and you know everyone wanted to leave. He asked about my health and noticed how swollen my legs were. He spent a good hour with me that day examining me and discussing the swelling and what might be causing it. He drew pictures. He solicited feedback. He encouraged me to try a course of action that other physicians said wouldnât work with me. He started me on medication and asked me to change my diet and fluid intake. I've lost seven pounds in eight days. He took the time to address a non-gynecological issue when other physicians hadnât bothered with it for over a year. This is who he is. I cannot say enough about this gentleman. I wish I could clone him!!!! God bless this doctor.
I brought my 15 year old to see Dr. Pelligra after not liking the way my own doctor was with my daughter. Dr. Pelligra explained things very clearly and even drew diagrams so my daughter and I were very clear about everything. Then he asked if I was available for test that day and thankfully I did. My daughter had a large pituitary tumor. Dr. Pelligra called me and was so caring. He went above and beyond. Even though this was now an issue for another doctor, he is still following her to insure she is properly cared for. I strongly recommend him!
