Dr. Perlmutter was interesting to talk to and had strong opinions about my non-medical questions. He is matter-of-fact, direct and good at what he does, which is something I have grown to appreciate from a medical professional who wants his patients to be healthy and active.

My experience with Dr. Perlmutter has been Excellent! He's efficient, friendly and always answers all my questions. I don't at all understand the issues some have had, personally I think it's them, not him. He knows his job and that's what I see him for, if you need a cuddle ask your Mom, if you need an accurate diagnosis and someone to help you regain your health see an excellent doctor like Dr. Perlmutter. Personally, I want someone that can separate some of the emotion out of the experience and keep me calm by giving me straight facts and solutions. I want a confident, pragmatic doctor that steers me in the right direction so I can get and stay well. I don't need someone to tell me what I want to hear, but what I NEED to hear. I think far too many patients have unrealistic expectations of what the doctor is there for and what he/she is supposed to do for you. The patient has more responsibility for their health than the doctor does and personal responsibility is lacking these days.

Dr Perlmutter is a very good cardiologist. HOWEVER what he has in technical doctor knowledge he severely lacks in basic human compassion and understanding. I was having a mental health crisis and was legitimately suicidal. When I told him this he said “well when you try to kill yourself make sure you don’t do it with Tylenol because that will just destroy your liver and you will be left with one more medical problem to not take care of”. Then he stomped off. Good cardiologist sub-par human.

Dr. Perlmutter has an excellent way of speaking to his patients. I'm always impressed by his preparedness and thorough advice. He gives me the impression that he has put significant thought into what he is telling me. When suggesting a new medication, he's not doing this without ensuring that I understand his reasoning for it. He's very respectful and courteous. He always greets me as "Hello Sir" and is quick to offer me a firm handshake. I'm glad he's watching my health for me.

Excellent care over the last 15 years. Several disparate problems always handle efficiently with the right diagnosis the first time. Firm, but right.

First visit with my mother, he changed a ton of her meds and said, see you in a year. I agree 100% with the reviews below, he is so full of himself and dismissive of any questions the patient brings up, he's unbearable. We will not be back.

Anne in Bellevue, WA – Jan 30, 2016
One is best served with an M.D. that is less brilliant and self served. His own diagnosis was met with contradictions of his own words. Lacks any empathy and talks right over you. Will try and bully you with his dismissive interest in even hearing your questions let alone answer them. Quick to lose temper.

You are unable to get a word in as this md is dismissive of any querry...lacks ANY empathy and does not grasp that people wish to know how much you care before they care how much you know. My information (given by md) was contradicted by his own staff. Would rather die than have to look at this man again.
