Ratings for Dr. John E. Perry
Dr Perry has always taken time with me to explain and go through treatment options and diagnoses. His staff are always professional and courteous. I have never had a problem getting an appointment fast and at a convenient time. I believe Dr Perry saved my life. He diagnosed a gallbladder issue that I thought was indigestion and I had emergency surgery that night. The surgeon said my gallbladder was close to rupture and could have killed me. When his practice moved from their old building to the current one I changed family doctor to one closer to home but the care was far below the standard I have received from Dr Perry so I went back and the 35 minute drive is well worth the extra time
I saw John Perry MD for more than a decade. His care was very sporadic, he often seemed exhausted and distracted and missed things that were fairly obvious. Getting appointments for a regular office visit proved to be very difficult unless there was adequate financial incentive, i.e. physical with lots of tests. His office staff while friendly was slow and poorly informed. Billing questions were often incompletely answered and the reasoning for tests unclearly explained. Referrals to other physicians were also questionable. Not an office or MD that I would recommend.
Dr. Perry was my doctor for 7 years and the only reason I quit going to him was because I moved out of the state. I never had to wait more than 15 minutes, and he always spent as much time with me as needed for a thorough appointment. He even fit me in on a few hours notice when I had a softball injury that hurt but which I didn't think required the ER (turned out to be a fractured wrist, but seeing him probably saved many hours of my life from the ER waiting room). His referrals to several specialists I have had to visit have all been excellent. His bedside manner is fantastic, and I can honestly say my wife and I consider him to be a friend although we have never spent any time with him outside his office. I truly don't think you can do any better than Dr. Perry when looking for a family doctor.
Dr. Perry has been my doctor since 2000. I have found him to be patient, knowledgeable, and caring. He is pro-active in his treatment choices, and he is well-informed regarding up-to-date treatments. His staff is friendly and I have never received anything less than excellent service. On the rare occassion that I have had to wait, I have been kept informed as to why, and once in the treatment room his attention is on the patient. Love this office and would see any of Dr. Perry's partners.
Although Dr. Perry has a nice personality I found his care shallow and his ability to be responsive to my particular needs lacking. He will leave you waiting for 30-90 minutes after you arrive and refuse to see you if you arrive 15 minutes after your appointment. I cannot recommend Dr. Perry.
Best run doctor's office I have ever been to! The staff is courteous and efficient. The wait time was almost non-existent. Dr. Perry is a very warm, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who I have recommended to co-workers and friends without any hesitation.
Dr. Perry has been my primary care physician for four years. He is very personable, knowledgable and informative. I certainly feel at ease and comfortable during my visits. His follow-up is great and he has referred me to several qualified specialists who have excellent care and service as well. With his excellent advice and preventitive care, I am healthier than ever!
