Patient Comments (1)
A friend referred me to Dr. Perlman due to my many symptoms of neuromuscular and autoimmune disease. Rather than running any tests, he simply diagnosed me with 'conversion disorder', which is really just a sexist false diagnosis often given to women basically dismissing their medical concerns as mental instability. Not only did he falsely diagnose me, but Dr. Perlman also lectured me for using prescription opioids to treat my chronic pain, saying that I am ruining my life.
