As a General Surgeon, Dr. Peter Perll wants patients to know they don’t have to travel miles away from home for their care. “I want my patients to feel that they came here and got great care. That’s what it’s all about. I want them to feel comfortable to tell their friends and neighbors you don’t need to go 80 or 100 miles away. It’s right here. “
Dr. Perll joins Quincy Medical Group serving the Carthage and Keokuk communities. He will work in partnership with UnityPoint Health – Memorial Hospital and UnityPoint Health – Keokuk.
Growing up in Kansas City, Dr. Perll knew his future career would be in medicine. His parents were both physicians, and he was inspired to follow in their footsteps. “My dad was an orthopedist. My mom started as an OB/GYN and later became a child psychiatrist. I didn’t know anything but medicine because it was in the family. I love general surgery. There’s nothing better than taking care of people.”
Dr. Perll is a board-certified surgeon. He completed his training in 1995 and has been a practicing surgeon in Mexico, Missouri since that time. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology and his medical degree from Creighton University Medical School. He completed his residency in General Surgery at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center.
Outside of seeing patients, he enjoys spending time hunting and fishing. He and his wife have five children.
