Patient Comments (5)
Chandler, AZ |
Great first/new patient appointment. Very down to earth and gave very helpful information. Very aware and explained insurance issues that arise and how she tries not to inconvenience her patients.
Phoenix, AZ |
Did nothing for me, the va is more helpful, and that's sad.
in Phoenix, AZ |
I am worried about Dr. Perales' clinical documentation. She does not want to continue the medication other providers in the U.S. or outside the U.S. have been prescribing. There was no clinical documentation. Her staff said medical tests ordered are not part of the clinical records. What? She confirmed this from the back. But personal views were well written. That is not good. There was nothing documented about the reason why I went to her in the first place.
