Dr. Cheryl Perlis is a board-certified physician who specializes in natural hormonal therapy, brain and body biochemistry and aesthetic procedures. She was trained as a conventional obstetrician gynecologist, and then found her calling in functional/integrative medicine. She has been in private practice since 1990, helping hundreds of men and women look and feel their best at any stage of life with advanced cosmetic procedures and bioidentical hormone therapies. She has studied and trained nationwide under top doctors, thought leaders in their specialties and continually learns cutting edge medical information and procedures to benefit her clients.
Dr. Perlis has personal experience in her areas of specialization. When a bout of Bell’s palsy during her pregnancy left the right side of her face immovable, she discovered the benefits of botox® and dermal fillers and began training with one of the leading injectors in North America. When she uncovered a hormone imbalance that was causing her low energy, weight gain and foggy thinking in middle age, Dr. Perlis experienced the benefits of hormonal therapy and advanced nutrient therapy, which she now offers as treatments in her practice.
Dr. Perlis is married to Stan, her practice administrator, and they have three children: twins, Adam and Seth, as well as a younger daughter, Elliana. She is a dedicated environmentalist with a passion for animals and enjoys paddle boarding, hot yoga, gyrotonic, sailing, hiking, scuba diving, reading, and spending time with her family.
