  • Thank you for getting me back among the living

    Dr. Siddique performed a L4_ L5 dissectomy with a translumbar interbody fusion on me 11/2015. I walked my first mile 7 days after surgery , 3 miles 10 days post op. I returned to my medical practice after 4 weeks and have done extremely well. No pain meds after the 10 th day post op. I am able to do isloated upper and lower body exercises daily and have walked up to 9 miles on weekends. I am looking forward to golf and skiing soon.
    I have been referring numerous patients to him from my private and workers comp practices. So far they have all had great results.

  • They broke the mold when they made Dr. Siddique!

    I have never met such a caring and warm doctor as he. He took care of my mother and then I went to him as a patient following a bad auto accident. He was very conservative in his watchful waiting approach to my neck pain. It was only after about a year when the pain worsened and went into my arms and fingers that he told me I needed surgery on my neck. I had surgery within two weeks and he replaced a damaged disc with an artificial one. It was an outpatient surgery and as soon as I awoke afterwards my pain was gone! I had a speedy and full recovery and gained back the strength I had begun to lose in my hands. About 1 1/2 years after that surgery I developed cubital tunnel in my arm and once again he checked everything out, sent me for EMG/Nerve Conduction Tests and only then did he operate. Once again–a success! I had a quick recovery and I have no pain or weakness any longer. He is not only technically brilliant but also a warm and caring doctor who wants the best for his patients.

    Dear Dr. Rasouli,

    I can’t thank you enough for finding me a place in your busy schedule. Lynn said he’s never seen anyone so excited about having back surgery. The fact that I’m walking today is a testimony to your expertise as my surgeon and my “hero”. You are truly a compassionate and amazing man. Thank you for caring enough to help.

    Gratefully,

  • I will always be grateful.

    When I first saw Dr. Nomoto I was in severe pain, unable to walk, stand or lay down, rapidly becoming bedfast. I needed a very intelligent, skilled and compassionate doctor. Thank you Dr. Nomoto, because of you I participate in and have a life. When my back is healed I will be stronger than I’ve been in years. You have a professional staff who are efficient and responsible making a difficult situation easier for your patients. Thank you. I will always be grateful.

  • Thank you for being there…

    Dr. Hernandez in Porterville advised that I visit Cedars-Sinai to review my MRI images regarding pain in my lower back. I told him that a closer specialist to home would be my preference. Dr. Hernandez convinced me to visit your office which I did on July 16th. That morning, you calmly walked into the waiting room and with a friendly smile introduced yourself. We reviewed the MRI images and you outlined three choices to relieve my pain. I decided, with your support, that surgery was the best option. My wife and I returned home feeling very positive of our visit with you. On August 7th, I arrived at Cedars-Sinai Hospital about 5:30am. The doctors and nurses who treated me were so professional and respectful. After surgery you visited me to insure I was not in pain. The first week at home, Wednesday August 13th, I had not had a bowel movement and called Dr. Hernandez. Since I did not hear from him on Thursday, I e-mailed you that evening concerning my problem. To my surprise, within five minutes, you e-mailed and recommended an over-the-counter medication…oh what a relief! I know that you went above and beyond to quickly resolve my medical dilemma. Thank you!

    -F.M.

  • You took the time to carefully review

    Dear Dr. Nomoto,

    I’ve gone to hundreds of doctor visits over the years with my uncle and I had to take a moment and write a note after we met you. I appreciate your patience, genuine concern and compassion for him. You took the time to carefully review and assure that we both understand the diagnosis. I was most impressed when you conversed in Spanish! Thank you again.

  • Thank you for the part you have played in my healthcare, as I am in better shape

    This will be the shorthand version of what has happened as a result of your recommendation/s re my health problem/s. I have had two stents put in by Doctor H.B. SagarReddy at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital on 9/9/14. I have an appt. with Dr. SagarReddy this Wed. 11/26/14. In our last appt. he said he thought he would give me clearance to have the implant operation done the first week in Dec. ’14. I realize this coincides with the Holidays which may result in delays. My condition has improved, but the pain in my left foot, in particular, even with the Methadone (which has been intermittent) has not improved significantly. There have been short, 2 days with a major improvement, coupled with an improvement in length of sleep. I have had 3 days with continuous 6 hours sleep, the first time in maybe 5 yrs. Or more. I still get up around noon. Will be happy to get whatever info you need. Thank you so much for what already has happened. Thank you for the part you have played in my healthcare, as I am in better shape.

  • I’m proud of you! You don’t have to be proud of me!

    Brian, I was a patient of yours during 2010 and 2011 during which time you operated on me three times. The last operation was a Cervical Fusion. When I first met you I was really ill and could barely walk into your room, but I knew that I had chosen the best surgeon. I am now 65 years old and yesterday I ran and completed the LA Marathon being my first since the last surgery. Your words to me on being discharged were, “Do what you are comfortable doing, but don’t overdo it.” I really didn’t overdo it and I was comfortable the whole way!

  • Thank you for getting me back on my feet and enjoying life’s activity without pain.

    I was introduced to Dr. Perri and his staff following complications with a complete left hip replacement. Unbeknown to me, I had herniated discs in my back that were aggravated within the hip replacement procedure and ultimately lead to a foot drop condition. Being an out-of-state patient, I had experienced a high level of anxiety being unfamiliar with my condition, the doctors, and patient care in the area. Dr. Perri and his staff provided a warm welcome and quickly diagnosed the origin of my condition. They identified my options to resolve the issue, the risks, and anticipated results. We agreed the best solution would be to complete a microdiscectomy to absolve pressure on the nerve impacting motor control in the foot. The surgery proved successful, restoring complete motor control to the foot. Thru the process, Dr. Perri and his staff were intimately involved in communicating status and progress to recovery months after the surgery was completed. Dr. Perri and his staff provided the highest level of professionalism and patient care. I would highly recommend their services to others.

  • Dr. Perri was the key to my success.

    Understanding and overcoming back pain can be the most difficult process in one’s life. As a young man I was devastated when back surgery was an option for my treatment plan. Through this process I learned that the key to successful treatment and care is a surgeon that possesses not just technical ability in the operating theater, but experience and compassion in patient care. He possesses the ability to communicate with patients in a way that puts one at ease. His thoroughness and realistic presentation of options and outcomes was the lynch pin in my decision to proceed with back surgery at 29 years of age.

  • Look no further for an incredible results-oriented spine surgeon!

    Dr. Perri ended over seven years of chronic neck and shoulder pain with one two hour outpatient surgery! Dr. Perri saw me in January and we decided aver a thorough workup and careful consideration that I should have a cervical disc replacement. I went in for the procedure in pain and woke up feeling immediately better. Dr. Perri and his staff were and continue to be amazing with their care, orientation to details and overall great service. I certainly recommend Dr. Perri!
    -C.D.

  • I can add my name to the list of successful cases.

    Dr. Perri fused a disc at L5-S1 that was preventing me from walking more than 100 feet without lower back pain.  I also had severe pain and spasms in my cervical area and right arm.  My surgery was completed for L5-S1 and I was walking that day without pain whatsoever in the lower back.  A couple of days later my cervical spine was operated on without issue and I was able to return to work within three months.  During the whole process leading to surgery and post-surgery, I can only attest to solid professionalism, expertise, compassion and care for his patients.

  • Thank you from the bottom of my heart

    Dr. Perri saved my life by conducting several major surgeries on my cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine in order to correct many years of physical damage I sustained and didn’t seek treatment for. What this resulted in was a condition in which my cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine developed creating a debilitating condition that had become so aggressive..it not only ended my career, but (if untreated) i could have been paralyzed…or worse! Dr. Perri is not just a distinguished and accomplished surgeon…he is an amazing man…and I am honored and privileged to be his patient and call him my doctor! I could never thank Dr. Perri and his staff enough.

  • Dr. Perri is the first step

    I went to see Dr. Brian Perri because I was having severe back pain. I was nervous about seeing a doctor but his demeanor and professional manner immediately put me at ease. He was communicative, intuitive and highly knowledgable of the cause of and the best ways to treat my pain. He articulated himself clearly and I feel better because I followed his advice clearly. Seeing Dr. Perri was my first step on the path to healing and should be everyone else’s first step in dealing with their own.

  • Forever Grateful

    Early January I hurt my back to the point where I was walking with crutches and couldn’t even hold my 9 month-old on my lap because of the pain. Within a week I had an MRI and had surgery for a disc herniation in my low back. I was so afraid to stand after surgery, fearing the pain was still going to be there. It was gone and I was ecstatic! It’s been 8 weeks and I feel amazing. Thank you Dr. Siddique!
    -L.E.

  • Simply Amazing

    Dr. Perri has proven to be an excellent surgeon, who is sincere and forthright, and simply a great person. It is obvious he has surrounded himself with a team of professionals who carry these same qualities. There is little doubt in my mind that one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself was when I decided to have Dr. Perri perform the Disc Replacement procedure. God willing, I will not have to go through this again, but if so, I would certainly put myself back into the hands of him and this team. I appreciate their dedication to the work they do, the willingness to deal with empathy and care with their patients, the fact that they spend the time to be current on all of the available technology and procedures. More importantly, I recognize that this team is simply the best, and I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Perri to anyone who has similar needs. Thanks so much for getting me back to the hockey rink, back on the golf course, and back to exercising in only 2 months time.

  • You will not be disappointed

    The medical care world can be a difficult place for a great many of us. We have a problem and need someone with the expertise to help us understand what is needed. Dr. Brian Perri is that person. He is a wonderful individual and a fabulous surgeon. I had been to see three other orthopedic doctors prior to Dr. Perri. I left those offices confused and with no plan to fix my lower back problem. Dr. Perri took a great deal of time in the review of my MRI, the x-rays that were taken and a full scale model of the spine. I understood completely the problem I had and the process necessary to fix that problem. The surgery was a tremendous success and throughout the process Doc, as I call him, was the best. His friendly attention to you as a person as well as a patient is unmatched in my medical care life. Your sense of trust cannot be better because his approach is so thorough and understandable and his skills as a surgeon are simply as good as it gets. If you are in need of spine treatment, schedule time with Doc. He will give you back the life you want.

  • I only speak the truth…

    Dr. Perri is amazing and I feel extremely fortunate to have been referred to him. He went above and beyond during my first appointment and thoroughly explained everything to me in depth. He took the time to answer all my questions so that I was completely comfortable and knowledgeable in regard to my options. He immediately gained my trust and confidence and put my mind at ease with his expertise and his genuine, warm, and kind “bedside manner”. I never felt rushed or hurried during any of my appointments and Dr. Perri was also always available via email to answer any new questions or address any concerns. He was easy to reach and always responsive. Going into my surgery, I had 100% confidence in Dr. Perri and his skills as a surgeon. My surgery was a great success and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Perri is one of a kind and I would highly recommend him. I wish that all medical professionals were of his caliber and character. He is the best and I can’t thank him enough for all that he has done for me!
    -E.H.

  • I think he is AWESOME!

    I’ve worked in Health Care for over 20 years and have been seeing Dr. Perri for about 8 years. I have many health issues and I have seen many specialists who all want to spend 4 minutes with me. Dr. Perri always took time to listen and exhausted all the options on me before I agreed to surgery. He was always available for questions and concerns or just plain old reassurance. He performed a Microdecompression in January 2013. I’m doing great and wished I would have done it sooner.
    -S.M.

  • One day at a time on the path to recovery!

    I want to thank Dr. Perri, Dr. Siddique, and the whole team for getting me through the surgery and all my prior issues with all your support. I was in so much pain, anxiety ridden and feel so much better after this procedure and I truly thank you all!!!
    -S.M.

  • Blessed

    Dr. Perri, truly I am blessed to have met a doctor like you. After ten years of doubt from one misdiagnoses to another, a blessed angel introduced you and now you have become another angel in my life. At twenty-nine years old, you’ve given me my life back, and in the process showed nothing but kindness, support, and professionalism. You are truly an angel and I thank God each and every day for you.
    -S.A.

  • Great Surgeon

    I feel that Dr. Perri is a great surgeon and I’m very fortunate to have found him. Although I live in Nevada, throughout this whole process he has always been there by phone or e-mail to answer any question I had before and after my surgery and recovery period. It was well worth it for me to travel to get such great care and I would highly recommend Dr. Perri to anyone needing spinal surgery.
    -N.L.

  • Much Thanks

    I had tried various doctors over the years dealing with my back pain. When it was time for surgery, I looked for various opinions. Dr. Perri was the third. And the last. Halfway through my visit I had made my decision. Dr. Perri was by far the most personal and professional. All the doctors I met with agreed I needed the same surgery. Each approach was different. Dr. Perri’s was the least invasive. Thanks.
    -C.C.

  • Sincerest and Warmest Wishes

    Dr. Perri, there are not enough words to express my gratitude and appreciation for all of your care and concern this year. This has been a very tough year for me, but through all of this, you love not giving up the challenge of putting me back together. Thank you for all of your effort…you have magical hands!
    -S.S.

  • My Hernia Surgery was Harder!

    Dr. Siddique, just wanted to say thanks SO much for taking great care of me. From day one, I was very impressed with you and was confident you were the one for the surgery. I am honestly shocked there isn’t more pain. I know the meds have a lot to do with it, but I never thought getting in and out of bed would be so easy.
    -S.M.

  • Thanks Again

    Dr. Siddique, I wanted to thank you and your staff for the wonderful care that I received. I am doing well now and getting back to most of my usual activities after the cervical fracture. Thank you.
    -T.M.

  • Your Favorite Patient

    Hi Siddique, just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you have done for me and giving me my life back. Here is a picture of me dancing, which I could have never done if it weren’t for you! Thanks again for everything!
    -K.B.

  • So Grateful and Blessed

    Dr. Perri, I feel so grateful and blessed to have been guided to you to be my surgeon! Thank you again for your brilliant skill and talent in fixing my back!! I appreciate your great care and compassion that you have given me.
    -C.L.

  • I couldn’t be any happier with the way things worked out!

    After suffering intense pain in my back and up and down my leg about a year ago, my GP recommended Dr. Siddique. After my MRI, the doctor suggested a Microdiscectomy. Not that I love surgery, but I just wanted the pain to go away forever. Surgery was on a Thursday. After a long weekend of rest, I attempted to go to work on Monday. I only lasted half a day, but I never missed another day after that because of the surgery. It’s been a year since that surgery and since that month of healing ended, I have not felt one iota of pain in my back or legs. If you have back pain, go see Dr. Siddique and do whatever he suggests.
    -J.R.

  • I would highly recommend Dr. Siddique to anyone who is in need of help!

    Dr. Siddique in my opinion is the greatest back surgeon around. I have gotten the run around from other doctors for the past two years now. Within a two month time frame from my first consultation with Dr. Siddique, I was scheduled for surgery. I had what is called a Microdiscectomy and have done very well until now. Very much impressed with the way this doctor takes his professionalism to the next level. He is very direct, caring, and gives you his honest opinion.
    -K.O.

  • Great!

    I’m a Dentist in a town of 50,000. I kept hearing good things about Dr. Siddique from my patients. Pain was limiting my ability to practice. I went to see Dr. Siddique and he told me “I know what is wrong; I know how to fix it and I will get you 60 to 80% out of pain. Well, three months post-op and I’m 90% free of pain. I’m practicing more hours with a smile on my face and am free of pain pills. What impressed me most was how I was treated like a human being and all my individual needs were handled promptly and friendly. I was treated great from the doctor through the staff. I’m so grateful and highly recommend Dr. Siddique.

  • Amazing “Un-Doctorly” Doctor

    In a time of tumultuous healthcare, Dr. Perri has provided the appropriate attention for my needs, an attribute often distinguishing excellent from ordinary care. Dr. Perri delivers focus with a humility innate to some of his roots giving him the “un-doctorly” persona that should be encouraged in all healthcare professionals to enhance the care and brains behind the procedures. Time isn’t enough. A doctor must be thorough, calculated, and strategic for renewed health to take affect. Dr. Perri substantiates that route.

  • I Just Adore Dr. Siddique!

    Dr. Siddique first and foremost is a gentleman. He is bright, knowledgable and very caring. There is no other doctor I would have care for my back problems. He makes himself available to patients when some MD’s don’t even want to know your name! All my experiences have been (4 surgeries) positive and I am still moving because of him. I just love Dr. Siddique!!!!!!!
