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.
