A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I have been seeing this "Dr" for almost 4 yrs and I can honestly say WORST bedside manner of any Dr I have ever had, My mom passed away 3yrs ago from none alcoholic stenosis of the liver I unfortunately brought my mom to this jerk and at the first visit he told her she "Is on too many pain meds" She was taking 20mg per day Oxycontin and 1-3 Vicodin SHE WAS DYING!!!! I had to watch her crying in constant, and extreme pain, I was hospitalized twice once I was in a coma for 5 days due to his NEGLECT. Do yourself a favor DONT GO TO HIM!!!!! He NEVER went over my records wouldnt send me for MRI even Begged (Not like he had to pay for it) When I told him time after time I was in more and more pain he had the NERVE to tell me It was because "I was concentrating on it to me" It was to the point I would cry when I would open my eyes, I truly wished I would just die. Long story short after getting a new DR who sent me for new MRI's last MRI's where in 2013!! It was NOT MY IMAGINATION!!!! Lots of problems new Dr just said he was sorry had to go threw and suffered so long (Drs dont like to talk bad about one another) So PLEASE DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR....RUN DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THIS horrible horrible excuse for a man let alone dr. If I had more time and space I would tell you all everything but just wanted to make sure I can help just one person so they don't have to suffer the way my mom (RIP) and myself had to live with
Please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. The staff is rude and disrespectful. The average wait time is over TWO HOURS!!!!! When you finally get in to see him, he acts like he never saw you before. Brought a handicapped parking application in--he signed the wrong area after looking at the form for several minutes. It baffled him. Finally found another form in his scuzzy desk and charged me $20 for his signature. Office is filthy. Appointments are constantly rescheduled. Do yourself a favor and go to someone else. Would NEVER let him do any procedure on me...he is incompetent. If I could give no stars, I would.
Over the last three months I have suffered with excruciating pain in my lower back after MRI was taken it was discovered that I had five disc in my lower back three herniated two bulging I also had a large cyst on my spine and severe arthritis complicated by scoliosis I met with Dr. Perez initially And he suggested an epidural as the first course of action I met with him yesterday he gave me the epidural shot in in my lower spine and today I'm completely free of any pain whatsoever this doctor is amazing
Took me off my medications to put me on something else, once i was off the meds he tells me that he can't do anything for me. I have permanent nerve damage and suffer neuropothy.Trying to get your medical records and a proper referal is almost impossible. Avoid this doctor like the plauge. His office is not the cleanest. Never reads your records and doesn't examin you properly. Thinks he knows all and you know nothing about your pain.
Terrible! I don't even want to give him 1 star here!!All he cared about was giving me Epidurals in the lower back. Didn't want to speak about any other areas of pain and kept saying he doesn't do those areas, only the lower back. Didn't even insist on an MRI. I had to ask for script for my knee for an MRI. Upon telling me he doesn't give anesthesia I was apprehensive about the pain of the shots and all he kept saying was, "You will get through it." Came home and consulted with 3 family members that had theses shots and all had MRI's and all had anesthesia. I called his office to ask if the shots were Xray guided as he did not explain this to me. Secretary said yes and also told me he would give me a local. So the next after noon I get a call from him with a bad attitude telling me that if I am that apprehensive he doesn't want to do the shots and was annoyed that I called his office again and kept saying to me that he told me all this already. I just let him go with his bad attitude and when he was done, I told him that obviously we have a difference of opinion so I will not be coming anyway because of his attitude. OMG! What Dr has an attitude like this!! Could not believe he actually called me angry because I called his office with additional questions that he felt he already answered. This is NOT a good Dr. DO NOT go to him. Should have listened to all the bad reviews he had before I went. Never again!!
