Patient Comments (2)
in Wichita, KS |
I saw Dr. Perales for a number of years, during which she started me on Benzodiazapines for anxiety. She assured me before I started that there would be no problems stopping them when the time came to do so. Then she kept upping the dose when it stopped working. Unsurprisingly, I became extremely addicted just from taking what she described. She refuses to acknowledge any culpability in the seizures and visits to the ER I endured when I was trying to taper off of it. I'm still dealing with this.

Dr Perales had a high level of anxiety about my health which made ME terribly anxious. She did not listen to me very well at times. I felt that she had issues that kept her from trusting me. She put me through a terrible time making me return one medication before she would prescribe another which led to an incident of public humiliation. Her office phone system is set up poorly so that one can't get a real person, or even know if the office is open. Her nursing staff are patronizing.
