It was a blessing for me to be referred to Dr. Perkins. My family and I continue to be treated with compassion and respect. No matter what news I heard from Dr. Perkins, he ensured I left his office empowered to do whatever it takes to have a long and happy life. The nurses and staff are top-notch! I got emotional when my chemo was over because I bonded with them so much. The all are the best!
