What People Say About Dr. Timothy Perez, MD
Reply
I had a colonoscopy that revealed pre cancerous tissue in the opening to my appendix. Dr Perez did my surgery April 2015 and he couldn't have been better. Before during and after the surgery he was attentive, competent, spent time explaining what was going on and what to expect after the surgery. I have little to no scaring so I can tell he takes great care in his work. I feel so fortunate I was able to have him as my surgeon and would recommend him without any hesitation.

Dr. Perez and his staff were extremely helpful and professional from my first phone call through to my surgery follow-up exam. I was able to schedule my initial appointment in a timely manner and had surgery performed to repair a hernia within a matter of two months. The surgery itself went down without a hitch. Dr. Perez provided excellent advice on post-op recovery procedures, and I was back in the gym with light workouts within two weeks. He's an excellent surgeon.
