I saw Dr. Peri today and left feeling comforted, relieved and understood for the first time since my diagnosis. She listened, was empathetic, and was willing to develop a treatment plan that integrated my desire to use more holistic approaches, while also assisting me in understanding my diagnosis and the best way to treat my disease. I am thankful for her knowledge and looking forward to having her as my doctor for many years to come. Thank you Dr. Peri and the team at NTKD associates.

I usually rate my doctors by their office and medical support staff. She has one of the best! You can get your bloodwork done in house. The techs are great! No multi stabbings!! Painless and very convenient. But the main reason that I chose Dr. Peri is because of her bedside manner. She listens and is extremely kind!! She treats you like your part of her family!

Dr. Peri was very helpful and treated my husband, daughter and myself with the utmost courtesy and respect. She answered any questions we had concerning my husband's health. My only negative comment was the wait time. We arrived at approximately 3:30 with his appointment being for 3:45 and our wait time was over 45 minutes.

I've been treated by Dr Peri for Chronic Kidney Disease since 2012. I've had other health issues and hospitalizations in that time period, none directly related to my CKD, but all impacting my kidney function and treatment. Dr Peri's counsell to me during these episodes has been exceptional. She is a gifted physician. She shares information and perspective which empowers me to make decisions about my healthcare. I see her as a the best possible partner as I evolve to my eventual transplant. A++
