Excellent results from the treatments that I have received from Dr. Yakov Perper. I've been to many pain management doc over the years. None come close to easing my pain as well as Dr. Perper does. He is simply THE BEST!!He is so professional and knowledgeable! I completely trust his skills and healing touch. I highly recommend him to anyone.

aThis review is based on 3 visits to the Center. I actually saw Dr. Perper once! Wait time is fine. Front desk staff is friendly. Dr. Perper was professional and kind. I saw Devin he was also very thorough and professional. In three visits, I saw three different doctors. While I didn't like that I needed to explain myself 3 different times I was ok with it. The last dr that I saw was a young female. First impression she commented on the size of the admins boobs as we walked into the patient space. Based on her behavior I thought she was an aide not a doctor. She then proceeded to read my file, very little face time. and she utomatically told me I wasn't eligible for pain med. based on a prescription that another doctor wrote that I explained I wasn't taking. She stated " I don't know you" As I was in pain, and feeling a bit vulnerable I stated that she talked to me like I was an addict. At which point she stated that she didn't talk to me that way it is what I was telling myself. I submitted a randomized urine test and I was told that they might not accept it because it was cold. Sure the bathroom was freezing and my sample was small. I felt i needed to prove myself so I stayed another half hour till I could go again. I waited and called every day and at the end of the week it was clear that I was dismissed by Dr Perper. Not even a phone call. All I was offered was a pudendal nerve block which I researched and it would not address the pain that I have. So here is my point. If you have doctors who are supposed to see patients, and the doctor isn't in and won't be for days, and u see three dirferent doctors....how is someone supposed to know you other than your records and past urine tests, etc. During one visit my pinched nerve in my neck was acting up and they suggested I get a pain shot. 3 months later...no one contacted me to let me know that I was approved for the procedure. For all of the above reasons and primarily because dr Perper couldn't get on the phone and call me . I will never ever go back.

First off, 1/2 of the reception staff are quite rude and not very accommodating to patients. Secondly, It has always taken over an hour from TIME OF APPOINTMENT just to get brought back, to then wait more just to be visited by a PA or the doctor himself. As far as the Doctor goes, while Mr Perper is a kind man, I believe there is a cultural/language disconnect given his apparent eastern European background. Not that he is unqualified, but he didn't seemed to be restricted by a language barrier in some aspects. Additionally, contrary to other reviews I read initially before seeing this doctor, he has not taken the time or effort to understand my problem or investigate it further. I underwent a single injection for treatment to which he then recommended I consult meditation/yoga therapy to alleviate my nerve pain. How ridiculous! Instead of investigating the issue further, he simply gave up. Surely does not deserve the title of Specialist in my book. Worst experience with a doctor overall in NYC by far.

The staff in Dr. Perper's office was friendly and personable. Wait time was pretty average -- 15-25 minutes. When I met with the nurse, he seemed in a rush and not really concerned with my pain. The Doctor himself mirrored the behavior, handling my case with indifference and no lay-terms. It was a fine experience and I want to give them another chance, but if the bedside manner doesn't change I won't be back.

This office reminds me "Google" headquarters in CA. Everything is so modern and upgraded in this office. And All people who work there are casual but very professional. This place is a front line of the comprehensive medicine, I think. Never been in such an office before. Equipment in procedure rooms is also the latest model, even in the hospital I have not seen such a good machine. But to top it- doctor is exceptionally knowledgeable and hands on skilled. Doctor was talking to me during a procedure and explained everything in a real time. Before coming there I could not even imagine that this kind of setting exists in NY. STRONGLY recommend.

After years of excruciating pain, and visiting different pain management doctors with no relive,I finally, found a doctor who knows his profession very well! I received pain management injection in my cervical area and pain was gone.I have been prescribed some low dose pain killers for the pain management as supplement for this injection and I am able to function, do my routine activities.I basically was giving my life back

I've seen Dr. Perper for about 2 years, and I regret every moment of it. He's been more interested in giving you injection after injection (and billing your insurance company) instead of actually treating pain, and when those injections fail he won't offer you ANY alternatives for actually treating your pain, which is completely contradictory to his specialty "Pain Management". In his ZocDoc profile he claims "Patient's satisfaction and top care standards are the keys for my practice!" that is a complete and utter lie because he will leave you out on your own if you don't take his injections, and he won't ever consider YOUR opinions, but he'll gladly tell you to "find another doctor" if you voice your thoughts. Furthermore, most of the times when you make an appointment you will end up seeing his PA's who are nice people in general, but not Dr. Perper who isn't even in the office most of the times. Oh and he'll also bill you for procedures such as an EMG, for which you won't get the results for at all.

After over a year of horrible pain I was referred to Dr. Perper. With a quick procedure the pain disappeared. He said it was only temporary but after suffering for so long it felt like a miracle. His office staff, I think his name was Devon, was outstanding. Extremely understanding and comforting. Thank you all so very much!

I had an epidural injection in my L4, L5 herniated disk. I couldn't walk, couldn't sit . I was in a lot of pain. Dr. Perper is amazing and most importantly PROFESSIONAL! I was not sedated ( my choice) and I felt no pain, just some discomfort. He was very careful, very gentle, was talking to me while waiting on the table.....:) I was given DUEXIS ( ibuprofen and famotidine) I am taking it 3 times a day. Today is my second day after the injection and I feel much better! Thank you Dr Perper and Dr assistant Bernadina. Amazing team!
