Choosing a healthcare provider is one of the most important decisions you can make. You want someone who is
caring, knowledgeable, and accessible. Someone willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you as a
person, not just a patient.
At my practice, we pride ourselves on our patient service. We offer a knowledgeable
staff, safe and proven procedures, and the latest in medical technology. Dr. Pokrywka has extensive experience in advanced
cholesterol / lipoprotein testing, and in on-site Carotid IMT ultrasound imaging for atherosclerosis screening, and
utilizing clinical nutrition consultation. I've created this web site for both new and current patients. It includes specific
information on the practice and the staff along with general wellness information.
