*Don't let the bad reviews of him discourage you, people write untrue things to retaliate. Dr. Perez is by far the best psychiatrist around. He knowledgeable about treatments, therapies, diet/nutrition, lifestyles and medications. He genuinely cares for his patients and their families. He is down to earth, kind and compassionate. He takes the time to get to know his patients. He is easy to talk to and more then accommodating. I know many people that see him and can honestly say that they have all had drastic improvement in their mental health, quality of life and their outlooks. His previous office in St. Peters was horrendous due to the staff that he had no control over. He heard his patients when we told him this was an issue. He moved into a building on his own for his patients. His practice director is an angel. She goes above and beyond. Treats everyone like family. We love Valarie and Dr. Perez the are the dream team! Do not look any further for a doctor. YOU WILL LOVE HIM!

The receptionist with this new office where so unbelievably rude and unprofessional I cannot even explain how low they made me feel I don’t think they were giving my messages to my doctor because my doctor never Called me back when I asked the receptionist to have him call me the receptionist refused me to talk to him because I could not come in to do a drug screen because I had Covid and I provided them with the proper information stating that I had Covid The receptionist told me I could not call to try to talk to my doctor when I would call I never got an explanation as to why my doctor quit seeing me no one ever called me to tell me anything nor did they send the letter or an email All I wanted was an exclamation

Prescribed adderall to my son when he knows that he abuses it. Does not care about trying to cure people. Just makes money off prescriptions written. Stay away from him and his practice. Will be contacting attorney general in Jefferson City to investigate his license. There has to be a way to stop him. Will be contacting media to investigate his practice.

I have recommended Dr Perez to my neighbor and one of my friends. He sees my son is very patient and doesn't judge me or how we are raising our son. Anytime we have a question, his staff calls us back the same day with a solution. Makes me sad to see how many negative reviews he has on here.

Dr. Perez is easily the worst medical provider I ever had to work with. I would never allow anyone I cared about to see him & would gladly testify against him. I was young, but know now that he shouldn't even be practicing. He was neglectful & rushed through our appointments, wouldn't explain things to me or my mother, & changed my meds FAR too often. After a year under his care I was drastically worse and ended up suicidal and hospitalized as a result of his carelessness. STAY AWAY.

I was a patient of his for a few years. At first, he was ok. He would kinda brush me off a bit and didn't seem to be overly invested in me. I didn't mind as I was not in the worst place when I first saw him. Now years later, he continues to brush me off. His staff is mostly rude and changes appointments on you. For my past 5 appoi tments, his wait time was over an hour, sometimes 2. One of his staff told me it was my fault for when I scheduled the appointments. I plan on going elsewhere.
