Dr Pernas was my father’s favorite doctor. His bedside manner and caring ways are exceptional and well appreciated by my 90 year old father who passed away a little over a year and by me who always accompanied my dad to his office. Three generations of this family including myself are his patients and I highly recommend him. He truly cares about his patients and is very knowledgeable. After my father passed I called the office to cancel his upcoming appointment and was very touched when I received a call from Dr Pernas offering his sympathies and his support. needless to say I was very touched. We need more doctors like him.

Gladys Rodriguez( Luis Martinez) – Jun 16, 2021
I'm more than greatly indebted to Dr. Francisco Pernas who removed a cyst from my left maxillar sinus and corrected a deviated septum. No swelling , no bruises , nothing , nothing of the kind ; and best of all , no post-op pain at all ; prior to this surgery , I suffered from persistent colds , and so on. These uncomfortable symptoms are forever gone. Dr. Pernas himself no wonder did do a class act which speaks volumes of his expertise and professionalism. He is a peerless ENT Surgeon ; and much more importantly , a compassionate, empathetic , kind person who excels at building up remarkable doctor-patient rapport. I do definitely recommend him ; if God forbid , I would need another surgery , I shall definitely choose Dr. Pernas again.

Dr. Pernas is an amazing ENT. I had the worst case of sinus infection he had ever saw and yet he gave me a clean bill of health with sinus surgery he performed on me. He literally saved my life. I love him!!! He is very professional and knowledgeable in his field of work. He ensures you get the best pre and post treatments you need to stay healthy. And his personality is the best! He is now and will always be my primary go to ENT SPECIALIST. Please see him for your ENT needs. -N. Knight
