Great doctor but terrible office staff. Preventive care should be paid 100% by insurance: the staff incorrectly put diagnosis codes on a preventive visit that said it was NOT preventive so insurance refused to pay. After months and several hours of research I finally discovered their mistake and politely informed them and requested that they fix their error. They refused. By then the unpaid bill was at a Collection Agency and the perfect 850 credit rating that I worked 50 years to obtain was ruined. Do NOT go to any doctor with incompetent and mean office staff.

I liked the doctor, however the support staff is horrible. They do not answer phone calls back and trying to get a hold of the doctor is impossible. I had an issue and bad side effect with a medication I was prescribed and did not hear from anyone the first time for 5 days and the second voice message wasn't answered for 2 days. finally called me and she had a major attitude. Do yourself a favor; find an office with support staff that actually cares about their patients.

Been with Dr. Persad for more than two years now. Very satisfied with my treatment. Great friendly staff, very professional. DR. Persad is the perfect family doctor. Listens to you and asks all the right questions. He takes his time and makes sure you are satisfied with your appointment. If you are looking for a pill pusher this is NOT the doctor you want. Highly recommended.

I went in to see Dr. Persad for my annual check up and the staff and doctor was great. I explained that I believe that I may have a hernia, which has been giving me severe pain. He stated that he would give me a referral for a sonogram which never happened. I called his office and left messages with his receptionist three separate times and never received a call back to this day. Getting in contact with him is like trying to get in contact with the president. I'm very disappointed!

I am fortunate to have found Dr. Persad as my Primary Care Physician. He is compassionate, articulate,and intelligent, and I have no doubt I am in good hands under his care. He is a doctor who sees you as a person and not statistics on a page, and will see to it that your total well being is balanced and maintained. Additionally, his staff is A+. They're helpful and accommodating and will call with appointment reminders and test results. The office has a friendly energy. All around A+.

"Assembly line" practitioner. Doesn't even look at you, just glances over your chart. Quite frankly, he doesn't come within arm's length of you. He just sits in the corner. Doesn't return calls. Mails you test results and doesn't address all of the issues therein. You spend more time in his waiting room than you do with him. The good reviews in here had to have come from his family members. Don't waste your precious time with this charlatan.

Dr. Persad is a despicable dr! He is very rude not to mention how inexperienced he is.... he is all about your insurance money! If you are looking for a friendly and caring doctor, look somewhere else... he is far from it, he wont even look you in the eyes!
