I have been a patient of Dr. Perlmutter’s for over fifteen years.
I had a yearly physical each year.
This year I was out of town and missed it by two weeks.
He refused to refill a routine prescription until I had an office visit.
I was very upset with this development but I have also been dissatisfied with recent care.
During my last visit, I told him I thought I had a hernia. He didn’t even examine me but said I should see a surgeon.
It turned out that I did not have a hernia just swelling but he couldn’t be bothered to investigate He also listened to my heart and lungs through my shirt – which is not a sound procedure.
His care seemed cursory and I concluded that he was primarily concerned with finances, not medical care.
I don’t recommend him and I say this after many years.
