I have been a patient of Dr. Perlsweig for over ten years and I cannot say enough about how wonderful he is. Kind, respectful, and engaging are just a few words how I would describe his personality. Clinically Dr. P has helped me immensely with understanding myself, my perception of the world, and my reaction to what life brings to the table. He provides me with excellent therapy and medication management. I find Dr. p to be down to earth and realistic, we often share a good laugh. He's Great!

Doctor Perlsweig is simply the best. He is kind, understanding and always prepared to go the extra mile to help me. When I have needed his help outside office hours he is always prompt to respond. Once when I was out of state on vacation and had forgotten to bring my medication I called his office and within an hour I was able to pick up my medication from the nearest pharmacy.

Dr. Perlsweig is well educated, understanding, empathetic and incredibly patient. He comes up with the right questions to help you open up and start discussing the issues you are dealing with, without judgement. He works with you through the steps necessary to help you realize what is happening to you and to work on growing from it. I would recommend him highly to anyone who needs to understand why they are having issues and wants to better their life.

Dr P was very helpful with my son. He diagnosed him with ADHD and prescribed meds that helped him tremendously! He engaged my son with Minecraft, meeting him at his level. He was able to help my son with bulling issues at school as well as issues he was having with his parents' divorce. He was communicative with me as a parent and helped me understand the challenges I was having with my son.

I have been a patient of Dr. Perlsweig for a considerable amount of time. Under his guidance I feel that I have come to know myself better than I ever did before. I have also developed problem solving techniques that have helped greatly in times of real distress in my life. His sense of humor and comfortable style is very refreshing.

I absolutely would recommend Dr. Perlsweig as a compassionate therapist and mental health expert. I experienced major depressive disorder a few years ago and I credit Dr. Perlsweig with laying the foundation for my full recovery. The improvement in my life now is like day and night. It took a lot of sessions and a lot of work, but Dr. P managed to give me encouragement and a path back to wellness during what was the absolute worst time of my life. Thank God for Dr. Perlsweig!

Dr. Perlsweig was intelligent and intuitive in understanding and diagnosing my son's ASD and ADD. I am educated in teaching kids with mental disabilities and even I had a hard time pinpointing what was going on with my son. He is great with children. His advice and perception show he has a keen intellect and love for his field. Wish he was still our doctor.

In my 68 years, I have seen a few psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists. None has helped me as much as Dr. P. His ability to explain his point by using examples has led to my gaining insights never before available to me. He has all the patience in the world and has no problem re-addressing or addressing from a different angle a concept I may have difficulty grasping. Both of us being Jewish helps in the sense that we have a common perspective. I've found a new level of spirituality.
