Meet Bruce E. Perry, MD
“Some people follow a lifelong calling to medicine. I was motivated by bad luck. I broke my leg playing college rugby and was treated by a doctor who was not very good. Reflecting on the experience, I realized I could do the job a lot better—and that I wanted to. I switched from marine biology to pre-med and have never looked back.
“In almost three decades since I finished my residency, I have been driven by that desire to be better. That means I never stop trying to improve my own techniques and I never stop learning new ones. I work hard to stay on the leading edge of research and development and when I believe a new procedure has been adequately tested and proven effective, I get the training I need to perform it.
I want each of my patients to get the very best treatment possible—both personally and medically. My goal is to treat each patient with respect and compassion, from the baby born with a clubfoot to the 90 year old who wants to keep dancing. I love being able to make a positive difference in my patients’ lives and help them resolve problems that hold them back from enjoying the activities they love.”
