Verified Patient Reviews
It’s alright. I was the first patient, but not served first. There was no eye contact during bedside conversation. The one checking your eyes was another person, and the doctor was writing prescription and checking your retina. Toward the end, another person doing the follow up which seemed to pushy for me to buy glasses/contacts through the center. I was skeptical with the prescription, so I went to another doctor to get my eye checked again. And... the results are different. It was 3-4 points stronger. Probably they use their own measurements, that they can understand. Don’t do it unless you have serious issue with your eyes.
Simply put, Dr. Peracha saved my life! I went in to see him on a Saturday afternoon due to swelling in my eye. I was previously told that I had busted a blood vessel in my eye two days before by the PG County hospital emergency department. Dr. Peracha noticed some serious abnormalities with my eye and concluded that it was neurological. I was admitted in the hospital the same day where they found two brain aneurysms and a fistula! I am forever in debt to Dr. Peracha.
The desk staff was very friendly. The first doctor who took my eye stats was super nice. Dr. Peracha was friendly and very caring about his patients. He helped an elderly patient to a seat in the waiting area and asked if he could do anything else to make him comfortable. That’s customer service and care! Dr. Peracha took the time to listen to my story about my symptoms and ensured to tell me what he was doing. He answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Peracha. The wait can be a bit long, but if we are all here to see Dr. Peracha, we know we will be taken care of.
Competent and friendly.

It was wonderfull service
High knowledge of specialists
The front office staff was okay and the waiting room decent. The appointment was for 1:30pm but I wasn't seen until 2:25. Dr. was pleasant and didn't over-prescribe.
He is just wonderful. Marcus has a disability so this is his mother writing for him. Dr, Parecha was wonderful with Marcus and answered all my questions. I will let others in the developmentally disabled community know to include him on their list of recommended doctors.
I made the appointment with this Dr as a new patient. I was already on my way to the appointment which was scheduled for 2pm when the office called and asked if I could come in a half hour later at 2:30pm. So I had about 45 minutes to kill before the new appointment time. I went up to the suite around 2:15 and there were patients lined up in the hallway waiting for the office to open. Around 2:35pm the office door was still locked! Someone came out to the hallway and told everyone that they will open the office in a few minutes! it was probably 2:45 or 2:50 before they opened the office and let everyone in. This was not a first good impression with the way the left everyone standing in the hallway while they finished their lunch! I had plans to be back at work at a certain time and was very stressed that I was not going to make it in time. I communicated this with the receptionist and told them that if the wait is going to be very long, I would not be able to wait. But they got me in pretty quick after that. I just did not think it was very professional to leave people standing in the hallway. I would not go back to this Dr.
Very professional and right to the point of my problem in my eyes. Will come back for follow up in two weeks. very happy with his services.
Very Bad. Reception staff where OK but a little pushy. His assistant was very abrupt and unprofessional and he himself seemed to not care or be interested in my questions. The whole place was very unwelcoming and the people working there had a "couldn't care less attitude".
Dr is very good I'm satisfied with him alot
Competent, friendly doctor and staff.
I've had eye problems for almost 1 year and went to 2 doctors before Dr. Peracha. They were saying my eye was just tired and dry and one of them even prescribed me eyeglasses that were complete unnecessary. Dr. Peracha took the time to ACTUALLY examine my eye, found the problem and prescribed me a medicine. I'm still waiting for the medicine to work, but really appreciate Dr. Peracha took my seriously.
He's very professional and courtious.
I don't have vision insurance so I really appreciated Dr. Peracha's ability to just write out the prescriptions for both my eyeglasses and contacts and allowed me to have them. This way, I can order them online which will be a big cost savings for me.
THE SECRETARIES WERE FRIENDLY AND SO WITH TH ASSISTANT WHO GAVE ME AN EYE EXAM BEFORE I SAW THE DR. DR WAS VERY POFESSIONAL AND THOROUGH IN HIS EXAM.I WISH HE WOULD HAVE PROVIDED A DISPOSABLE SUNGLASS AFTER HE DILATED MY EYES OR COULD HAVE ADVISED ME TO WEAR ONE . MY VISION WAS VERY BLURRY AND WAS SO INCONVENIENT WITHOUT SUNGLASS IN THIS HOT WEATHER.
I was glad to see this doctor. Am really happy i saw him cos i was desperate to get a quicky answer and i got one. i absolutely recommened this doctor to others.
Took much too long to be seen. Once seen, Dr. Peracha was fine.
The doctor is excellent but the receptionist was not good. The waiting time was long a bit so get a book.
Very polite and well mannered. He is also very smart and patient.
He was an okay doctor but I disliked his receptionist. Very rude and unfriendly.
