Initial visit with my mom. The staff was all very friendly and prompt. Dr. Perkins was kind, knowledgeable and reviewed my mothers chart before coming in. He had testing done that day in the office. We never felt rushed. In fact, he was attentive. His staff had oxygen delivered to her home later that night. Very pleased we found him and his wonderful staff.

I was referred by my cardiologist and was very pleased. He’s thorough and very personable. He asked questions and looked for answers. Meeting a new physician can be stressful but he and his staff made all that anxiety go away. This may be inappropriate but he’s easy on the eyes too! Hope I didn’t offend but my first visit was more than I had anticipated. Thank you.

Overall I had a great experience with my first visit to Dr. Perkins. He is very professional and treated me with the utmost respect. He explained the CT scan results and set up a care plan for the future. My only problem was in getting the initial appointment set up. Somehow the referral from my primary care physician's office got lost and it took several days to get it straightened out. But everything went smoothly after that. I would highly recommend this team.
