Dr. Perkinson III's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Perkinson III "Dr. Perkinson has been caring for Texans for over 20 years. He completed medical school at the University of South Carolina in 1992, and Baylor College of Medicine's Department of Family and Community Medicine residency in 1998. He embraced his initial private practice experience in south Texas, starting one of the state's first completely paperless medical offices, developing and refining workflows for a more rewarding experience for all. Following a transition to the north Houston area, he returns to his primary care roots in Vector Health, a company he formed for the express purpose of providing effective solutions to the many flaws in the American healthcare system. Americans need a patient-centric experience, where bureaucracy is marginalized, value realized, and a new respect for health is fostered."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Perkinson III "Vector Health IS:

  • Individualized care: limited phone menus/voicemail, same-day scheduling, minimal paperwork, less wait time, no exam-room computers, security-centric digital health records, clinical & fiduciary transparency, after-hours direct physician access, social media integration, relaxing clinical ambiance.
  • Total healthcare: neonates to centenarians, all physical exams, vaccination, travel medicine, complete skin care, urgent care, laceration repairs
  • Evidence-based medicine: substantiated standards, not whimsy
  • Genomics: the next major medical frontier

Vector Health IS NOT:

  • Spa medicine, typically cosmetic & unsubstantiated
  • Prescribing addictive medications for habitual concerns (opioids, anxiolytics, amphetamines, etc.)
  • Over-testing, where evidence supports a better approach

At the end of your first visit here, we want you exclaiming, "Wow! I've never experienced ANYTHING like that before! It was so relaxed, so thorough, so fast, so real! I have a new respect for my health!""

Awesome person, let alone great doctor. From the moment he entered the room, it was if an old friend walked in. Very professional and very personable individual. Takes the time to have a two way discussion with the patient.

Best doctor ever. It was a pleasure to visit with Dr. Perkinson, and have him actually take the time to listen and converse. I am accustomed to doctors spending little or no time with me. I left with the feeling that I had finally found a caring doctor.
