Very Happy

March 01, 2019

she is simply the best. she knows me as a person, shows that she cares by asking good questions and listening, and she's so approachable. I am so grateful to have her as a PCP!

Whenever I see Dr. Schelesky, I know it will be a good visit. She listens, cares about me as a person and sees me not as the sinus infection or sprained wrist, but a PERSON who lives in a community of people, who has a job, who has animals.

Once again, I am impressed with Dr.Shelesky's commitment to quality care. She is very thorough and very compassionate.

Dr Shelesky is amazing! Seriously, the best and most reliable PCP I've ever had.

After my last PCP left I was are you sure I can find someone as caring as him. Dr. Shelesky has always taking care of me and listen to my concerns well and I believe she has my best interest in mind

Excellent experience. This was an annual physical, but I used this appointment as an opportunity to ask the doctor about PTSD symptoms I am experiencing. She was extremely understanding and brought a social worker into the room to start the intake process (with my consent). I was incredibly nervous about this whole process as it involved talking about my past trauma. Dr. Shelesky and her staff really took care of me.

Dr. Schelesky is the best - I recommend her to everyone I talk with, and I recommend the Bloomfield_Garfield Family Health Clinic to everyone, because of the holistic, excellent care I get, because it's close to home, and because the clinic director has a deep, abiding commitment to staying in Garfield. KEEP UP the good work!
