Dr. Surekha Perlman (Mrs. Perlman it is a husband/wife practice) is incredibly talented. I have achieved much success with Dr. Perlman managing my struggles with thyroid, early menopause and weigh gain. Under the care of Dr. Perlman I feel much younger and I've lost 50 lbs. I searched high and low for ten years for a competent doctor who really knew how to care for mature females. She really knows her stuff! Stop searching you have found your solution here.

Dr. Surekha herself is kind, considerate & seemingly knowledgeable but her office personnel apparently changed appointment times without successfully notifying the patient. 2 separate office appointment visits were made by my 90 yr. old husband who walks with considerable difficulty using a walker and we found that there was NO appointment on their schedule even though we had an office appt. card showing that time & date! Getting through on the office phone is VERY time consuming!
