Dr. Peress came highly recommended. He was on time and professional. I have the highest regard for him. He took a few minutes to review my EKG's, ask questions, and determine my diagnosis. I have never had a cardiologist so exact in his analysis. He knew what I had and why I experience my heart symptoms. He drew a picture and explained in detail how my heart was operating. Together, we decided on a plan. Choose Dr. Peress and you will be in the hands of someone you can trust.

Dr. Peress and his office are incredibly difficult to work with. In two different procedures that went wrong, he never came to talk with me afterwards (nor did anyone from his team). He misled me about specialists (using my rare case for his own training), his office failed to schedule my next procedure even as I called for 6 months straight, & screwed up my insurance authorization paperwork for Mayo Clinic , causing me to have to cancel my trip-- hotel, flights, shuttle, appointments, and all.
