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.

This was one of the worst places I have ever been.It took me 3 weeks to schedule an appt., (playing phone tag, and having to leave a message EVERY TIME.Not once did a human answer the phone),I had to wait another 5 MONTHS to get in.Then,they called me several times that week saying my Medicaid number was inactive.They had the wrong birthday after asking me for it several times to verify my identity.I was 3 min.late with all my paperwork filled out & they would not see me-told me I must reschedul
