Dr. Nancy D Perrier has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

I have seen this doctor since 2008 and can not support others reviews of long wait times. Only once in 7 years did I have an extended wait time. Always very timely and whenever I have called I have always got an answer to my question within 24 hours (usually the same day). I would recommend Dr. Pierre to anyone with parathyroid issues. I feel very confident in her care.
Absolutely top notch professional. Comes highly recommended from my teen son's Endocrinologist. Had a delicate, intricate surgery for my son for an adrenal tumor. This surgeon exhibited confidence and absolute expertise in her speciality. Son's surgery went smoothly. Her preparation weeks before and handling of everything in between and especially the day of made his surgery a success. Performed lap robtic procedure. Can't express my gratitude enough for having met Dr. Pierre.
I saw her first in 2009-walked in, she talked, sent me for tests and came right back and she scheduled me for surgery. Thyroid out in no time. In 2011 went in for an adrenal tumor, infact I called her assistant, faxed her my report and they got me in immediately. Surgery scheduled immediately.Her and her staff, assistants and fellows were great. They called and checked on me and handled every bit of paperwork I needed filled out. I recommend everyone I know with endocrine problems to go to her. I am also amazed with her knowledge, I tell people she is a walking medical journal and I bet if you quizzed her she could give you page numbers to reference.
I saw this doctor for parathyroid issues. Actually, I did not see her at all until lots of testing was completed Lots of tests!!! X-rays, Nuclear, CT scans, etc. etc. etc. etc. I kept asking when I could see this doctor and I got no where. Finally after 2 months of going back and forth to MDA for testing, I was able to see her. I waited over an hour to see her and she spent about 3 minutes with me and out the door she went. Talk about a let down. Asked 3 times for her report and never got one. I was not a happy camper. Bedside manner? Poor! I went elsewhere.
