Be sure to read all the reviews about Dr.Perera and not just the glowing ons used up fill up this space. My experience was the same as the patients who said he spent maybe two minutes with them and then charged exhorbitant fees. He is all about money. Do not be fooled. There are other places for treatment and doctors who take insurnace and actually care about people. He will spend your appointment preoccupied by his computer or something else and he gets away with it. It is a disgrace.

Dr Perera saved my life, he was the only therapist that actually knew the right meds to put me on and actually listened to my problems! He is brilliant!

Dr. Perera is an outstanding psychiatrist. His perceptions are extremely insightful and create profound changes in the understanding of ourselves and modifying the dynamics of behavior toward others. The changes that he is responsible for creating are long-lasting and extremely meaningful. I believe that the benefits of talk therapy have been greater than my experiences with TMS, which has been hard to evaluate in terms of benefits to me. I feel very fortunate under his care!

All I can say is he is an excellent doctor who saved my life. I have been suffering from depression for almost all my life and I had been to several doctors who were unable to help me. A friend recommended Dr. Perera as he had helped her overcome her depression. The TMS treatment along with his guidance basically changed my life. He has a charming bed side manner to add to it.
