I was treated by Dr. Perez and his staff administered an IVIG treatment to me and near killed me. They dont know what they are doing. Very very bad experience for me. Had to wait for my appointment 2 and 1/2 hours and they dont even tell you you have a long wait. No communications, Had a bone marrow test and a cat scan and Dr Perez never explained to me the results. Do not rec-emend this doctor at all stay away!!!!

I am very unhappy with Dr. Perez. He is money hungry and doesn't care about his patients as much as he would claim. I have met nurses that would not even recommend him. I never write reviews ever but I want you to save your time and money and see another doctor.

We are FRUSTRATED!! Granted, he is very kind. However, he DOES NOT explain the diagnosis very well and instead of giving us meaningfull information on what we can do as far as nutrition, or anything else, he is only interested in waiting long enough to put me on chemotherapy. Is he a business man or a health provider? Also, we wait up to 1 1/2 to 2 hours every time we go to see him. That is unacceptable!

So far we are so frustrated. So disorganized so far and we are telling them what Dr Perez is telling us we need to do. No training in this office. A little scared at the care my husband will receive. No one is running the office. I had to call and get insurance approval. I called 3 times and talked to 3 different girls to schedule MRI and CAT scan. No call backs and the 4th girl today took care of it. None of it was in his records. We had to tell them. Geez.
