I wish people knew the truth about this "psychiatrist". Two sham/money hungry doctors together on tv at once---Oz and Perera. I urge anyone who needs professional, compassionate psychiatric help to go elsewhere. This is ABOUT MONEY.

First and foremost--Dr. Perera values money. It is important that any prospective patient know that your mental health (or that of a loved one) may not be the priority. The treatment he is touting is controversial at best. It is, however, a big money maker.

Dr. Perera really tries to get a good understanding about me more than anyone can..But seems to have far more knowledge about the human brain and psyche than anyone in this line of work.

When I was in the need for an emergency appointment for my son, Nicole his coordinator at the front desk got my son an appointment that day with Dr.Perera. My sons life has changed dramatically since his new treatment plan and Dr. Perera even recommended an amazing therapist for my son who he sees in the same office weekly. I can’t thank the staff at Contemporary Care and Dr. Perera enough for my son’s progress! If you or a loved one need help- this is the practice to go to! Ask for Dr.Perera!

The Dr squeezed me in so I waited about 20 minutes but well worth the wait! He gave me the same attention he gave everyone else and knew exactly what medication I needed and what therapist to pair me with.. I feel much better and like a different person! Usually a wait but I expect it because sometimes in psychiatry people are going to have bad days and need his time more than others. Again while worth any wait time!!

Dr. Perera is the first Psychiatrist that I truly respect and believe in. He really knows what he is doing. Yes, the appt may be behind. Yes, it may be fast (unless you need to address more issues.) But he is so smart and I think he nails what you need very quickly. And quickly can adjust things as necessary. He knows what he is doing. I totally trust him. For myself and my daughter.
