Ratings for Dr. Peri Petras
I went to Dr Petras for the first time in June of this year because my Gyn retired. I never thought I could replace him but I feel I did. She was welcoming , warm and and very easy to talk to. I had two routine tests done and she called me to explain the slightly abnormal results. I couldn't be happier I'm her patient.
I went to Dr. Petras for almost 20 years and liked her very much. She was always thorough, helpful, spent plenty of time with patients, and the staff is great. And she never gave me a hard time about my weight, until she went on an extreme low-calorie diet to lose weight for an event and insisted that I do the same. I've done crash diets and they just made me gain more weight. After 20 years, I felt that because she had lost weight, she was now disgusted by me and I felt that if I did not go on this diet I would not be welcome back. I have not found another doctor I've liked since but I don't dare go back. I have vainly fought obesity my whole life, I eat healthily, my BP and cholesterol are fine, but I don't feel that I would be welcome in her office anymore. She is a great doctor if you don't have a weight problem. It's too bad.
I am another patient who moved out of the area, but still travel to see her & pay out of my pocket because she is not on my insurance plan. And the office staff is very professional and when you call, there is never "voicemail jail" to navigate through.
