Family Member Quotes

“Dr. Tarique Perera has been instrumental in helping my son. My son had many complications and we could not find the proper help after trying several doctors. When I was distraught and wasn’t sure my son’s condition could get better, we were referred to Dr. Perera. He has gotten my son back on track. Currently my son is undergoing some medication changes to help him further, but I feel as if my son is finally on a road to recovery that will give him a chance to function in society again. I highly recommend Dr. Perera. He is extremely knowledgeable about medication interactions and diagnoses.

When my son first started with Dr. Perera, he was on an insurance plan that was accepted in his Danbury office. Since then, my son’s insurance changed. Even though it is not accepted, I chose to stay with Dr. Perera. His knowledge is too valuable.”
