"Dr Perna was my therapist for 2.5 years and made my life worse that whole time. He didn't even make attempts to diagnose me and most of our sessions ended with me crying and him ignoring me to mess around on his phone. He was my first therapist and because of him it took more than 5 years to get over my therapy related trauma and get a correct diagnosis/therapist who I didn't get flashbacks from. He's an ego maniac with thinly veiled anger issues who gets passive aggressive whenever anyone disagrees with him, you'll get better advice and help from a random teenager working at burger king, at least then you won't be in debt from his ridiculous pricing. Even though there was never anything even vaguely resembling progress he ended every session by telling my guardians "I think we made real progress this time" many times he told my guardians and me that he believed I simply had behavioral issues and no mental illness when I showed clear signs of autism, severe anxiety, depression, PTSD, and ...
many other mental illnesses that I have been since diagnosed with, no thanks to him. Coincidentally I am friends with 2 of his other former patients who both agree that he's the worst therapist they have ever met. If you care about yourself whoever you're looking into getting him as a therapist for do yourself a favor and don't. Because all he cares about is his reputation "

"This man wrecked my life. He mocked me for all my problems but once laughed at me and called me a girl for getting a pink drink. A cruel unpleasant person."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
