This physician is incredible. An arthroscopic surgery to resolve a hiatal hernia for an 80's male. The one hour surgery was 7 1/2 hours! because the tummy was connected to the superior vena cava and esophagus. This was a 2nd surgery of the day; and Dr. Perry did it! My dad ate his first bbq sandwich, and burped because the surgery was perfect! Less pain than a hernia surgery.

I gave Dr. Perry two stars only because of his front office and surgical nurse. I had Breast Cancer surgery and then the Savy radiation treatment, about 3 months later I got a very bad infection in that Breast and when I'd call his office (3 different times) they would refer me to the nurse who didn't think they needed to see me and to just go to my doctor, long story short I ended up in the hospital with emergency surgery.

I was referred to Dr Perry for breast cancer surgery. He performed both a lumpectomy and mastectomy. While he is an excellent surgeon, the caring and compassion he displayed helped me thru my cancer journey. Dr Perry helped me find a wonderful reconstructive surgeon, again gently answering my questions and listening to my concerns. He provided wonderful care!
