Waited forever, got charged A LOT for a weed card. The doctor seems kind, but I spent maybe 3 minutes with him. His office staff are really incompetent and I waited for an hour in an empty office listening to them talk about TV shows while they "processed" my paperwork.

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.

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!

I came in excruciating pain in my back radiating into my right leg and thigh. I could not sit, could not lay down, could not walk, felt helpless and miserable. Doctor thoroughly evaluated me and offered Transforaminal Back injection into my Lumbar Spine. He administered it very professionally and painlessly. Pain subsided right away and I was able to walk home on my own and take care of my newborn baby, when home. I am so grateful to Dr Perper, do not know what I would of done without treatment. Strongly recommend!

Do not go to this place. They make you feel worthless and don't care about their patients being in chronic pain. How does a Dr say that injections are dangerous on your back but then asks you if you want one. This is the worst doctor Ive been to in my life. Save yourself the time and stress

The Physician is amazing, but his staff is horrible!! They're disrespectful and do not know how to address a patient without having an attitude or mock you. Their phone etiquette has to be the worst I have come across in 27 years of living. I'm sure I can't list names on ZocDoc, but I wish I could!!! They shout at you and make you not ever want to visit this Physician' office again!!! He can definitely lose patients because of his staff and word of mouth is the best advertisement! They need to hire professionals as the Physicians are extremely professional!

After seeing 5 different neurologists/psysiatrists, and getting no relief, Dr. Perper took a thorough history of my pain problem, gave me injections to lessen the pain, and they worked extremely quickly and effectively. I did NOT need opiate pain medications, and will be treated by Dr. Perper exclusively from now on. He is the best!

I was in excruciating pain and the Dr. agreed to see me on SATURDAY, with an office full of patients. He and his colleague took more than ample time to take a history, discuss my case together, and decided I should receive an injection in my spinal area that did not hurt and helped relieve my pain IMMENSELY! I felt remarkably better in just a few short hours. I cannot thank him enough, and the staff were courteous, and very patient. Thank you again!
