Patient Comments (2)
Chesterfield, MO |
My appointment was at 10:45. I was moved to an exam room after about an hour. Dr. Perlmutter did the normal tests for a routine exam then dilated my eyes. I was put back in the waiting room around 12:15. They brought me back into an exam room around 1:30 where I waited to see the dr for another 15 minutes. I was there for over 3 hours for a routine exam. I have 20/20 vision and no problems so these were just basic testing. The office is out of date and the receptionist desk is covered in papers.

He is experienced, thoughtful, takes his time and is confident. My cataract surgery went like a well oiled watch, his bed side manner is caring and sincere. He will give you all the time you need.
