I have degenerative osteoarthritis that has moved into my feet. I can no longer run distances and the pain can be quite severe. Dr. Perscky spent a lot of time with me going over my x-rays and MRI. She explained everything in simple English and gave me quite a few alternatives to managing the pain and mobility. I have never had a doctor take that much time at each visit. She patiently listened and answered all my questions. She even re-laced my sneakers to alleviate the pain. I will continue to see her as needed and am so pleased to have found such a knowledgeable, patient and kind doctor.
I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with Dr. Perscky and the staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. Dr. Perscky was knowledgeable, caring and concerned. Her and the entire staff, including her medical assistant Randee were friendly while maintaining professional and efficient standards of care. I am so very thankful for the excellent care I received from Dr. Perscky and Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing foot or ankle care and would recommend DOS to anyone needing orthopedic care as I have had great experiences with other physicians in the practice as well.
