Specialties

Dr. Theodore M Perlman has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

This doctor has practically saved my life - after visiting several other doctors who failed to diagnose my illness, Dr Perlman was the only one who took action by ordering a battery of tests that ultimately led to the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. I highly recommend this physician. He is kind, compassionate, and intelligent man.

Great Gastrodoc

In my experiences with Dr. Perlman, I found him to be both friendly and helpful. He takes the time to answer any questions you have without making you feel rushed while he is doing so, and he has plenty of useful information. Most of his staff is likewise friendly and helpful, though there is one woman there who seems to be grumpy pretty much all the time. Overall the experience with him and his staff is a pleasant one, or at least as pleasant as needing to see a gastrodoc could be.

Doctor review

Dr. Perlman was friendly, until I questioned why a procedure was being done now, instead of at the time of my colonoscopy appt.(which I scheduled that day for 3 weeks later). You could visibly see his attitude change. After a simple exam I was in pain for a full day. He was rougher than needed. I cancelled my colonoscopy appointment. He seems to be one of those Dr's who don't like to be questioned. Time to find another Gastro Doctor. You should do the same.
