Dr. Juan J Perez has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

Dr. Perez says what he thinks, not what you want to hear. He and his partner, Dr. Morales, their staff, and particularly their Physician's Assistant, Chip, are all excellent. They run their office like a tight ship. If your appointment is at 3, your go in at 3 or darned close to it. However they'll respond to an emergency immediately and effectively. While he may come across as somewhat curt, he has to stick to business to stay on schedule. But he genuinely cares, e.g. we were both in tears when my wife, his long-time patient , passed away. If you're looking for a drinking buddy, he's not it. If you want an excellent physician, he's an excellent choice.
From the time you enter the office, the quality care is apparent. The spotless waiting room has furniture that can be cleaned and germ free. The receptionist is friendly and professional. After waiting for less than 2 minutes (it is rare to have another patient waiting, thus less exposure to germs), a nurse takes vitals. She shows real concer for the patient. The wait for Dr. Perez in the exam room is also less than two minutes and is followed by a through exam. Dr. Perez listens to his patients and show caring and compassion. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Insurance is filed without any stress for the patient. If a prescription needs to be refilled between visits it takes only one phone call to the staff and you crest assured that the pharmacy will be notified.
Rudest doctor I have ever been to. First time I saw him told me I had to lose some weight (which I knew and had been trying) I told him I had been trying to watch what I eat and he said "yeah watching it go from your fork to your mouth". 2nd visit he told me I have asthma and I asked him if he was sure that it was not related to my other breathing issues. He told me " if you don't like my diagnoses you can take you records and go back to Dr Jantz in Gainsville" Glad we changed insurance and he doesn't take it.
