“I love getting up and going to work every morning. Each day is another chance to help my patients.”

Adam Perry, MD

Dr. Adam Perry is an expert in reconstructive breast surgery and a board-certified plastic surgeon. He believes his job as a physician is to bring hope to the women he works with—along with outstanding clinical outcomes.

A physician acts as an important advisor to help patients make decisions, so it’s imperative that the patient-physician relationship is based on trust. Dr. Perry understands the importance of establishing trust, and he works to make his patients feel as comfortable as possible: providing reassurance, alleviating concerns, and being accessible 24/7 to answer questions.

Dr. Perry is also passionate about incorporating cutting-edge technology into his surgical procedures. This includes microsurgical breast reconstruction, the technique currently at the forefront of breast surgery. By staying up to date with the latest trends in the field, he can offer patients the greatest number of options and the most advanced solutions possible.

Dr. Perry believes patient relationships are strongest when everybody listens to, learns from, and communicates with one another. He incorporates this two-way exchange at every level of his practice and is proud of his continued growth as a caring, compassionate provider.

At Northwell Health, the Friedman Center’s partner health system, Dr. Perry also serves as the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Southside Hospital.

“Dr. Perry is genuine. He was consistently committed to treating me as a whole person, emotionally and physically. My husband and I both experienced Dr. Perry’s exceptional care during every interaction from my intake to my hospital stay to my 3 month follow up.”
