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.

Dr stared at his laptop the whole visit. Didn't pay attention to what I said. Not impressed
