Explains things very well. He has a very good bedside manner. Performed a necessary surgery on my neck fusing 5 of my vertebrae together with excellent results. I am very happy with him over all.
in Delafield, WI |
I have had cervical and spinal fusions. Dr. Perlewitz did all of them. From the 1st day I saw him I never felt pressured into making a quick decision. He went over every option with me. I just love Dr. Perlewitz. He never makes you feel rushed when he is seeing you. And his bedside manners are wonderful..Dr. Perlewitz is a truly concerned and caring physician.

If you choose this doctor, don't let him convince you spinal fusion is a piece of cake. I placed my total trust in him & his reassuring me 80% of my back pain and 90% of nerve pain wld improve & return to work in 3 months. Quite the opposite. My life's been a complete nightmare. Chronic pain, loss of job & disabled since surgery. He has also refused to see me any longer. Very unprofessional. Be prepared to have appts canceled, long waiting times & lack of sympathy if your pain continues.

I had a four level cervical fusion. I had some other health problems as well. I was petrified to have the surgery. Dr P treated me as if I was a member of his family. The surgery and recovery went better than expected. His entire staff mirrors his caring attitude. I would recommend him to anyone with neck problems.
in Oak Creek, WI |
I had a critical surgery , and it went perfect , Dr. Perlewitz was the man of this mission, he took a good care of me before, during and after the surgery. he fixed me as he promised. I strongly recommend him.
