One Star

This doctor works for cid management for the employer's. When an injured employee's doctor tries to help and get the injured / disabled employee treatment through works comp, the employer pays this doctor, to find any reason to deny treatment. Even the most basic of treatments like pain medication to help the employee keep working. How can this doctor live with himself. When a honest doctor wants to help someone suffering, this doctor has no problem taking money to make up any reason to deny it.

Dr. P will help you!

I have seen a lot of poor reviews about this doctor. I would like to say that I feel some reviewers are being unfair. Yes, there is a long wait time and it's an old and "not pretty" facility. But the wait time is due to the fact that Dr. Pietruszka is the ONLY physician in the West Valley (other than Olive View) who takes Medicare. He also has a lot of work comp patients. Hence, the crowded facility and long wait times. It is worth it if you want to settle your work comp claim. The doctor also speaks fluent Spanish and is very caring even if he seems rushed sometimes. His diagnoses are spot-on. He will do his best to help you with your work comp claim. He supports the "average Joe." If you feel you are made to wait too long, or that the staff seems rushes, it's because the clinic is just so busy...why? Because employers and insurance companies are out to screw you, and a good work comp doctor is hard to come by. Please bear this in mind. Dr. P is a great doc!

ImPatient Patient!

This doctor, and, his staff, have no sense of time at all! Oh!, you have an appointment?, that's nice!, who cares? You'll sit, for a while, in the main lobby, just to be called, back to one of the examination rooms, just to sit there ENDLESSLY!, just to have the..umm..Doctor, speed into the room, ask you some rapid fire questions about your health, does not completely explain test results, or really diagnose anything!, and, always seems to be in such a hurry, until, normally, there's no real time for any questions! If you have money, or, good insurance, he has NO PROBLEM, sending you for tests!, in which, I'm inclined to believe, often, are either bogus, unnecessary, or, fraudulent! I would not refer this doctor to an enemy of mine!

long waiting

This is the most unorganized doctor I have seen in my life. Your appointment is at 9am and he finally sees you at about 4. He has so much going on that he is slow and needs to retire
