Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Pereles was very good. He was very quick with examining the x-ray structures of the knee and with his diagnosis. Currently undergoing the prescribed meds and doing better! Pereles is very knowledgeable and a down to earth, funny individual. However I rate his bedside manner at "Good" because he seemed a bit rushed. Didn't take the time to answer all of my questions and quickly jetted out after giving me the medication. Hopefully I just caught him in a time crunch. Wait time was excellent, I came about 30 minutes early to fill out new patient information which only took about 5 minutes. I was seen about 5 minutes earlier than my appointment time. The staff seemed a little rude over the phone but in person (assuming they're one in the same) they were fairly nice and easy to deal with. Overall I would definitely recommend the office, and especially Pereles.
I liked Dr. Pereles very much and I will see him again if I need an orthopedist in the future.. He was friendly, warm, and very informative, explaining as much as possible in terms I could understand.. I was given options on treatment, one of which I chose..and received at the time of the appt. I was also given prescriptions "if need be." I thought him to be professional but also comforting and of course, very knowledegable.
Great visit - in and out with minimum fuss. Seemed very knowledgeable. Will be going to him with any future orthopedic issues.
Outstanding doctor, very knowledgeable and a good communicator. Really took time to understand my situation and clearly explain the options. Other staff during my visit were very good as well. Major headache dealing with office administrative staff, who unilaterally decided to cancel my appointment with no recourse because they misunderstood my insurance situation. Very hard to get through the office phone maze. In terms of actual patient care, however, the experience was outstanding.
Very nice, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.
Very thorough, knowledgable and genuine.
A good man! He's going to be my new Doctor!
Made me feel confident about fast recovery !! Thanks Dr. Daniel Pereles
