What People Say About Dr. Edward Perkins, MD

In 2002, I believe that was the year, Dr. Perkins treated my mother with Burkitts Lymphoma. CURED my mother. He was there through everything. We have ran into him a few times down town and he hasn’t changed a bit. I was maybe 5 when my mother was going through chemo/radiaton so I didn’t understand but now, being 22, I am so beyond greatful she switched to Dr. Perkins. She is still to this day cancer free! Thank you!

I agree that he is very knowledgeable but I also lost confidence when he failed to respond to messages asking to be contacted. In addition, prescriptions were not called in, appointments canceled and orders for testing were not placed. No follow through at all, seems to either be over booked or uncaring.

Although he is very knowledgeable about my leukemia and treatment option I lost all confidence when he failed to respond to my contacts first regarding what I was told was need for admission within 5 days for induction therapy. That day came and went with no word from him or his office and no response to my messages for nearly 2 weeks. The second was after my nearly passing away. Four messages left since late November with not one response from him or his office. No confidence at all
