    I will always be grateful to Dr. Perkins for being the doctor who took a look at me from head to toe, so that I might have an idea of where my arthritis is headed. In the past 5 years, he's relieved some of the pain in my hands via use of cortisone shots, as well as being emotionally supportive. I find his staff to be professional and efficient, and don't ever have trouble scheduling appointments.

    If I could give a 0, I would. Dr. Perkins is absolutely awful. He is rude, condescending, and all around a horrible person. He would not believe me when I told him I was in pain and then he refused to do any tests to see if there were reason for my pain except for one MRI to see if there was a pinched nerve in my back. He said that he was 100% sure that I had no arthritis and when it was found in my back, he refused to look in other areas that cause me pain, that it was not medically necessary

    Dr. Perkins has kept my RA under control since Oct. 2000. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone.
