Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pereira "My practice is personalized and traditional; and there are no electronic medical records to compromise your privacy, or bosses telling me to hurry up to generate more money. There are no "physician extenders". I am totally independent, and I alone see and treat you. I practice common-sense, humanistic medicine, & my fees are very reasonable and down to earth. I do for you what I would do for myself or a close relative. My goal is excellence, and for years I have appeared on "best doctor" lists."
