Dr Perlis has been my Dr for 17 yrs. She listens and gives you time not rushing through but so you feel heard. I had an ablation procedure that went awesome. Her staff is attentive and caring.

The entire staff was more friendly than you can imagine. Check-in was quick, even in this Covid environment. Wait time for my procedure was brief as the office called in advance to notify me they were running about 30 minutes behind schedule. Can't ask for a better G.I. experience!
