Michael Perala is the nicest & most caring doctor in the office. I have seen him many times for hip replacement & knee replacement plus finding I have bursitis in my hips (he gave me a shot for the pain. It helped so much. He takes time with me & is genuinely a good listener to what I have to say regarding questions I have had. He makes me feel at ease and covers all with an understandable answer for each. He also has a sense of humor and smile to warm my heart. He truly cares about his patients. As I am healed, I probably won't have to see him again and I will miss his wonderful bedside manner & smile - Good luck to him in continuing his marvellous patient care. [...]

The only bad experience was that he was at least a half an hour late both times.

Very helpful. I appreciate having my knees x-rayed to determine that they were OK. This helped clarify that I needed my right hip replaced and would most likely not need to follow up on my knees.
