What People Say About Dr. Maria Perales, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Maria Perales is very sweet. I was a patient but I did not feel my treatment was successful there. I felt that when I needed guidance for my medical issues I would be told "well what do you want to do" I just prefer a Medical Provider who is more direct. Other than that she is okay. Oh and her office has very intense long wait times.

Good doctor. Likes to laugh. The 2 hour wait has me wondering if I should switch to another doctor. Thank God I only have to come once a year.

Sat in the waiting room for an hour. Wasn’t called back and there were several people ahead of me. Staff wasn’t able to reschedule. Giant waste of time. Not efficient scheduling process.

I have had Dr. Perales as my physician for several years. She has a fantastic "bedside" manner. She's friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and cognizant to my problems. She takes the time to talk with me about my health or to that matter, subjects outside of health issues, and with each visit I learn more about her personally. I find her conscientious and when she recommends something that will keep me healthy, I feel secure and confident that she is genuinely concerned for me.

I love Dr. Perales. She is the best. She in my Opinion saved my life. I went to a specialist that overlooked a Lump in my Breast, I then went for my yearly Exam with Dr. Perales and she found it right away which was Breast Cancer. She has performed several Surgeries including my Hysterectomy. She is the best....I highly recommend her....

Always get a second opinion. I was told that I had multiple issues. I have been to three different providers and they have not seem to find any of the medical conditions Dr. Perales told me that I had. I was set to have a complete hysterectomy and that was 5 years ago. I am in perfect health.
