Verified Patient Reviews
It was my first time, I was provided quality care and treatment, everything was explained with clarity. Dr. Perper did a great job at evaluating my condition and providing what he felt was the best option. Left feeling better than I did coming in.
Dr. Perper and staff are great. Expect your whole day to be clear the wait time is rediculous! This visit i left in more pain than i came, not sure why. There was so many payients there was no time for my pain to be reassessed. I'd still continue seeing this doctor
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.
Long wait time but i wouldnt go to anyone else!
All staff were very nice and down to earth. Very caring.
Dr. Perper and his staff were very attentive, friendly and patient, with my pain and questions.
Very nice and helpful. Makes you feel at ease.
Very professional and I got assistance in Spanish
The best doctor I have ever been to. He avoids drugs and looks for the root of the problem. A true scientist.
Friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend this practice, but it is not as technologically updated as some others. The front desk is a bit overwhelmed and disorganized. It is what it is.
Great doctor very professional
I love the staff and dr. Peepers just be prepared to wait!!
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.
Very patient good doctor, explained everything , worth the wait, my pain was gone !! there was no pain while inserting the injection ! Thank you.
Dr. Perper was very professional. He listened to my problems and addressed my concerns. He offered several possible remedies and treatments and explained my options. I left his office with much less pain. I will definitely see him again.
Doctor is kind, mellow, and ego to help. I was pleased with his treatment and will use him as my pain management physician from now on. Finally, found a real doctor, who cares about his patient's wellbeing, very rear in our days. This visit made my day
Doctor is a top professional, smart, decent and very straight on point.He will do exactly what is necessary to help your pain. Before visit here, I could not even imagine of how many different techniques are there to treat pain.This office gave me a hope of recovery as a last resort. Also was pleased by a friendly and professional front desk.
He is certainly the best pain management physician I ever visited. Very knowledgeable and skilled. Office staff is professional and friendly. Happy about this visit and will return. He helped me and continue helping my pain with Transforaminal Injections. Thank you zocdoc for helping me finding this doctor!
Stay away. Reception treats you like garbage. Look elsewhere or you will regret it.
The staff was very helpful during my procedure. I would highly recommend this facility for physical therapy and/or PRP injections.
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.
Amazing! The PA was friendly, professional and careing. He explained everything very well. I had an injection on my back and they were so nice. Louisa the assistant was marvelous she made me feel at ease. Five Stars!
Very professional staff ,I felt comfortable and look forward to returning for future appointments
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 loved it he was great and the pain is gone
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.
Dr. Perper is very caring and very smart. His treatment has done a lot to improve my pain as well as my overall wellbeing. His staff is courteous and easy to deal with. I would recommend Dr. Perper to anyone who suffers from chronic pain.
Doctors and reception area was nice. We were seen and everything was taken care of. Great office!
The staff his assistants where very friendly. The doctor explained the procedure and showed in real time a picture of what he was doing.
Helpful, friendly, and informative!
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 highly recommend to everyone. Very good doctors and the staff and services excellent.
Dr Perper was very professional, kind and knowledgeable. I was very satisfied with his plan of treatment for me. His assistant Dr Peter was very helpful also. The entire office staff was nice. I am very satisfied.
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!
This is one of the best offices I've ever been to. The staff is very attentive and extremely friendly. Very professional. Very clean and pleasant environment. Dr. Yakov Perper took time to listen to my situation and was able to generate a plan for my treatment. I will definitely be coming back for my treatment and any other related issues.
Dr Perper is an amazing kind man.. the best pain management dr in ny!
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
He is the best pain management doctor in NYC.
Great place, great staff! It was my first time and I felt very comfortable. Thankful to have found this place!
The office honored the appointment time even though they said they had no record of it. Otherwise, the office, the staff, and the doctor are all excellent.
I met Jesus yesterday... His name is Yakov Perper!
Excellent and friendly staff. Well mannered Doctor, very knowledgeable in his specialty. He took the time to show me different exercises for my pain, as well as a very detailed explanation of my diagnosis and all my treatment options. I would highly recommend Dr Perper to friends and family.
Dr Perper is the sweetest, kindest dr I've met.. The staff was very nice as well, and treatment was amazing.. They even have physical therapy downstairs.. Amazing!!!
Unprofessional and fo4got to return my documents and id. I had to return and I was rushed with no questions answered
Excellent doctor! The best experience in a long time. Doctor is very polite, nice, knowledgeable, and, the most important- he helped me with my knee problem right away. Five stars, amazing, the best
Horrible experience....walked away with more pain than I had originally.
I won't recommend this doctor to anyone didn't care about my needs hes a coward he send me home with withdrawal I had to go to the er because my pain
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!
Very nice Dr.
Very good. Very professional and I left feeling like there is great improvements on its way to my broken down body. I left his office with hope
He is good Doctor
Very nice dr
I think we need more doctors like him...Dr.Perper is very intelligent...He make all the complicate stuff to look like simple to understand...He knows very well his practice...He is very professional...His office looks a little confusing when you get there at the first instance...but right the way we start feeling like home...and his staff are very polite and helpfull...we really had a very good and pleasant office visit...thanks
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!
He has helped me remain mobile in an unmobile situation. It is easy to lie in bed and ignore pain but much better to get out there and live life. He has helped me get out there .
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!
Very good doctor, he listened and cared about my condition. He didn't rush me out of his office. He answered and explained things to me, which these days is rare in doctors. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Very good !!!
The wait time was beyond ridiculous. I waited 2.5 hours to be seen, only to be interrupted by nurses at least a handful of times. Perper then excused himself to go do injections, which pushed us back an additional twenty minutes. Needless to say, it was a very unpleasant, tiring experience.
Staff was warm and courteous
Minimized my pain as if it was not real.
He's an outstanding Dr. I was very pleased with his concern and honesty!
Very good doctor. Very helpful and kind staff too. Highly recommended
Best Doctor experience in a looooooooong time :) The healthcare industry is so disappointing, BUT.... when you get a good doctor, stick by them! Dr Perper is one of a kind! Literally the best Doctor I have ever had the chance to visit. Courteous, listened to me, answered all of my concerns, didn't overbook by 50 people. 5 STARS AMAZING! Most of all he fixed me! I literally feel like a new person. This was the 3rd doctor I visited for my issue, guess third is time is the charm!
Very professional and courteous. Never seen a doctor so hands on.
This Guy is Great! Just his smooth calming personality help you to relax immediately. He is also innovative in his professional ideas regarding my "Pain Path" so to speak, I am a broken neck survivor who is constantly dealing with issue concerning all the mettle in my body; as well as, nerve damage! Doctor Perper's approach has really by far the best to having a better quality of life!
He is a great doctor! He truly cared about me and my horrible condition. I hugged him that's how much I enjoyed visiting him. He was a breath of fresh air in my crippling life. He is great!!!
He is famous for sticking needles in your back, and head. If you complain of back pain he wants to inject. If you complain of headaches he wants toinject botox. He does not want to try anything else just injection. The young girls at the desk is extremely, rude, bad atttudes and I tried to overlook them because they are young and will learn as they get older they will learn empathy will take them a long way in healthcare,
I'm very thankful to doctor yakov, I heard a lots of interesting and helpful advice, I absolutely recommend Doctor Yakov.
It was a long wait but there are signs posted that let you know ahead of time that it may be up to an hour and a half. The doctor was very professional and kind as was his associate and office workers. Certainly reccomend!
This was my 4th visit, again Dr Perper and his staff are super sweet and kind but the wait is really our of control, I was there 31/2 hours. It's almost worst then an emergency room visit, and really unfortunate cuz this really is a great doctor.
Dr. Perper is intelligent, attentive, and polite. He was able to diagnose a condition that has plagued me for years and gone unexplained by numerous other physicians. Highly recommended.
He is very sweet but the wait/appt setup situation is out of control I has a 10am appt got there at 945 am and by 12:30 pm I still had not been seen, I was about to walk out when a staff got him and he finally saw me. It's a shame the wait is 3 hours which is unacceptable because he is sweet with good bedside manner and is totally knowledgable
Terrible experience. Waited over 3 hours and when I was finally seen was treated like a piece of dirt. No compassion whatsoever. This doctor was the worst.
He was a a ggod man to help me with my problem and a good adviser.
Very kind and he has great bedside manner. He was very detailed about my options and made me feel at ease.
The wait was not so good...but once you are inside...the staff and the doctor are amazing...he answered all my questions and concerns and the staff equally did so....I came in horrible pain and left feeling so much better...I highly recommend Dr Perper
Dr. Perper is a awesome physician who is really concerned about the patients health and welfare. I pray that he will continue to help and support patients like myself who are in pain. His methods has reduced my pain where I am able to function and continue to be productive. Thanks, Dr. Perper
im pleased with doctor Yakov Perper-MD
I found the doctor and staff fantastic Doctor was a pure gental men .. And a professional , glad we have meet.. I feel very confident with Yakov Perper -MD Treating me..
The staff at the front office are not welcoming. I waited 3 hours for the doctor to see me. My appointment was at 1 pm and I was not seen til 5 pm. Ridiculous. No professionalism neither from the doctor nor the staff. Worst experience.
Awesome Doctor. very personable and nice.
I thinking Dr.Yakov perper's beheave is excelint.I am happy his beheave.So he diegonise correctly.NOw I like him'
Outstanding professionalism, listens, explains and evaluates. Flexible allowing the patient to partake in regimen recommendations. The first Doctor who truly listened.
HE WAS GOOD BUT ALOT OF PATIENTS AT THE SAME TIME I LIKE 10:00 APPT AT 10 THE LATEST 10:30 NOT 11:30
He was extremely attentive, thorough, and administered injections and pain medicine right away! The most relief I've gotten in years! Except for the lengthy wait, I'd highly reccomend him, and I will b back despite the wait!
