Patient Comments (4)
Syracuse, NY |
Horrible bedside mannerism Didn't give me the speaking time I deserved as a patient. Fails at interactive conversation about my previous treatment. No recommended.
Willow, NY |
My surgery could not have gone better. I had no pain after the surgery. I was given a prescription for oxycodone, but never used it. I healed very quickly and as soon as I was permitted I began physical therapy. I did my exercises twice a day and nine weeks after the operation I was back to normal. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is that he is very terse and does not give you much info unless you press him. He is a nice man, just not very forthcoming.
Saugerties, NY |
Office staff that answers phones in poughkeepsie office does not return phone calls. even the week of surgery you may need to wait by the phone for 3 days for a call back. dr presents as uncompassionate with abrupt nature. his knowledge gets lost in his delivery.
in Newburgh, NY |
Both my wife and I have used Doctor Perkins and both are extremely pleased with him and the results of his expertise. My wife had spinal stenosis and was operated on by him and today she is much improved. Just this past week, she and I walked half way across the mid Hudson pedestrian walkway. Before her surgery she could only walk one short block. You do not have to go to Manhattan to see a top orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Perkins is one of the best and he is right here in the Hudson Valley.
