Dr. Perilstein took time to talk to me and get to know some background information as this was my 1st appointment. He did a thorough examination,answered all questions. He made me feel relaxed and I would highly recommend him. He did not rush me through like most doctors do today but spent a long time with me. I'm so glad I have found him to help me with my arthritic knees.

I first met Dr. Perilstein about 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with Lupus. The day I had my appointment was a very dark day for me as I was dealing with a rash that had spread over my entire body in 4 weeks and that day had made it to my face. I seriously was on the verge.....Dr. Perilstein has the best bedside manner and assured me that we would get the problem under control. I have been in remission for 4 years and off my meds for a year and a half. He is truely the answer to my prayers, I recommend him to anyone that needs a rheumatologist.

What a relief to meet a doctor that doesn't treat you like a number. With great care and compassion, Dr. Perilstein listens to you, and answers your questions with full explanations of what is going on with your body. He walks you through everything he is doing to put you at ease if you need an injection. He makes it very easy to understand what he is doing and is extremly thorough. He is very much in tune with his patients and is A#1 in my book.

Living with RA can be debilitating, searching for the right treatment overwhelming, navigating the healthcare world frustrating, finding the right doctor...priceless! Dr Perilstein is the perfect combination of knowledge and compassion...the best partner for this journey.
