Patient Comments (4)

Amazing doctor!! So friendly, truly caring, and clearly very knowledgable and experienced in his field. He really took the time to make me feel welcome in his office. I will not be switching ophthalmologists any time soon!!

Absolutely awful experience. I could not believe he spoke to patients this way. The entire team was very unprofessional. I would rather wait at the ER for hours than to see this provider. Very disappointing.

As a doctor he is knowledgeable,however I didn't appreciate his condescending tone toward me or my 11 yr old son. We had to come in (on our pediatrician's recommendation) for an emergency appointment for a corneal abrasion. I couldn't find a sitter for my other 3 youngsters, who were all VERY well...more

This is a completely unfair review except that she was certainly an angry Mom. First, my office was able to schedule her promptly for a same day emergency appointment. He was VERY agitated. I asked the angry Mom ONE TIME about her son's ADHD. The reason for this was to ascertain what medications he was on. YES, ONE TIME! And I faced her, NOT her son and spoke in a quiet voice. And finally, we like to limit the other children in the exam room, ESPECIALLY with an agitated, uncomfortable child!!!

Dr. Perla was friendly and knowledgeable, and he was very good with my daughter - it's no easy task performing an eye exam on a 1 year old. He is the third eye doctor we've seen with her, and we're sticking with him.
