Survey Feedback

My experience with Dr. Perra was very transformative and healing for me. I have had a fear of hospitals, needles and surgery for as long as I can remember and usually use alternative methods because of this. My hip needed medical intervention this last year and required Hip Replacement. Dr. Perra was the surgeon I chose and with no regrets. He was very caring and sensitive to my fears, very honest and forthright. He responded to my calls, e-mails and texts with my questions and concerns in a timely manner and he really held my hand and helped me to feel comfortable and secure. I went into surgery with him and his team feeling confident with no underlying fear and total trust. Everything went very well and my recovery was incredibly fast. I feel as good as new and am so thankful for his expertise and compassionate and caring nature. Because of him and his medical team, I really have overcome my fear of hospitals, needles and surgery. I felt I was in the best of hands and am so happy with my recovery. Thank you Dr. Perra and staff! I give you 5 out of 5 stars.

Survey Feedback

I was impressed that Dr. Perra took the time to review why I was being seen. Then to also looked at my chart and recalled that I had a very specific neck condition that could be causing my current issue, so he considered that while doing his exam. I didn’t even think of that.  It doesn’t seem to be related.  But, I was impressed that he cared enough about my health and well being to do that. This isn’t just a job to him. That to me is a sign of excellence and exactly why my entire family has seen Dr. Perra and doctors at Summit Orthopedics.

Comment from patient satisfaction survey

I had a very good experience with Dr. Perra and his staff. I felt very comfortable with him. He will be doing my knee surgery and I have full confidence in him. As a retired RN I can fully say that there are few physicians I would give the confidence in, most don’t give you the time of day and treat their patients like idiots. Dr. Perra is a doctor that I feel confident and comfortable with.

Survey Feedback

Dr. Perra is the best.  He tells me what needs to be done so I can understand it.  He is the only one I want to have perform my knee replacement surgery.
