Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Perkins I specialize in endocrine neoplasia which includes thyroid cancers parathyroid tumors and adrenal tumors and in general thyroid diseases. Our practice offers a team approach where you can receive many different services in one place to deliver the most comprehensive care. In one day you can visit me the endocrine surgeon get any imaging you may need get a biopsy etc. depending on your needs. Having a thyroid condition can be quite stressful for patients so I always try to be an active listener and understand what theyre going through. I want them to walk out the door armed with all the information they need to make decisions. I believe that being a physician is a dual partnership with the patient. Outside of work I like to spend time with my husband and two kids. Were an active family that enjoys traveling and being outdoors.
