Personal Statement:
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.

It’s right here. “ Dr. Peter Perll serves the Carthage and Keokuk communities. Growing up in Kansas City, Dr. Peter 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. Peter Perll is a board-certified surgeon.
