Very professional, personable and relatable. Down to earth but straight forward. Dr. Perkins takes the time to explain what matters as well as what doesn't matter. His approach seems to me to be laying out the facts and opening up a discussion of understanding and not one of a cold forensic approach where you may feel left out of or limited in access and understanding of your own physical status. He has been my doctor for over 5 years and I highly recommend him.

I love Dr. Perkins, I just can't make myself recommend his office and staff to anyone I know because of the Ineptitude and lack of communication from the ancillary staff. The straw that broke the camels back occurred today, after having a physical scheduled for more than a month, when I was told at the window that they don't take our insurance as the company had dropped them from in network coverage. This apparently happened in May. Communication is KEY. They don't have a clue.

I personally would not recommend this pediatrician to anyone that has questions about vaccinations. I was told that if I wanted the altered immunization schedule I should probably find another doctor. I didn't like his bedside manner with my infant son and will not be recommending him to anyone. He also seems to have a disdain for the millennium generation as he called it.
