Patient Testimonials

Fantastic experience!

Dr. Bruce is just great. She spent a ton of time with me and it was great to see an Endocrinologist/Primary Care Provider. First time in Hillcrest (usually in La Jolla) and it felt the same — quality care. Highly recommend

Hillcrest Primary Care

I can’t recommend Dr. Perlman enough

I have been a patient for many years and I was more than happy to follow her to her new office. I think physicians are under a tremendous amount of stress but I also think some of them use that to make excuses for poor personal service. Never felt that from her. Dr. P. has always been so kind and compassionate with me and I didn’t think twice about referring my girlfriend and family members. Her knowledge and patience and her kindness is what keeps me coming back. Just love her. Highly recommend.
