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...more

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.
