Ratings for Dr. Kimberly A. Peregrim
Dr. Peregrim is the best primary care physician that I have had in the last 20 years. She helped diagnose my sleep apnea when the prior doctor from another practice dismissed my concerns. I always enjoy my annual visit with her and feel that she is straightforward and willing to listen. I always highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
I've always seen her for nothing more major than a common cold/sore throat, but when I came in with cold symptoms while expecting she exclaimed 3 times before checking me out that "I'm not going to touch you (while pregnant)". I was already going to look into another doctor after my grandmother saw her with her health conditions, and received the same response. Basically, if you are young, healthy, and without any complicated issues such as pregnancy she's fine, but if you needs more insightful help you're on your own.
I love Dr Peregrim's care and bedside manner. I am forever grateful to her for me identifying a serious health concern as a GP, that other specialists did not pick up. I've been with this office for 7 yrs. o just recommended her to my mother-in-law . I hate to rate the staff at 3, because I love the NP and the RN. LPN can get snippy when challenged, and The office staff is not too personable.
Because of her unwillingness to listen I went untreated for Lyme Disease for years. I had to argue with her to get a Lyme test. No follow up with my issues. Snarky know- it-all who doesn't seem to have an understanding of a patient's concerns. I fired her and went somewhere else. Don't be a doctor if you can't be up to date on current issues. Terrible.
Dr. Peregrim was recommended to me by a Physician whom I consider one of the finest ER doctors in the region. I have been seeing Peregrim for the past seven years for my annual exams and would not think about going to another family practice doc.
Dr. Peregrim is ok but as above stated can be rude and dismissive, and sometimes very crass. It's really the other staff I have a problem with. I called several times over a 2 week period about a prescription I desperately needed filled and everytime I called, was assured it would be no problem to fill. I called today and for the first time in 2 weeks a VERY snippy doctor on call informed me that there office doesn't fill the particular prescription I was asking for and made me feel like an idiot for not knowing that when HER STAFF including ANOTHER DOCTOR ON CALL told me it wouldn't be a problem and then never called back to say what was going on. In short I am leaving Dr. Peregrim and would NEVER recommend her or anyone on her staff for any reason.
