Office staff very inefficient. Could not provide pricing for cataract surgery.
in Peoria, AZ |
I will most certainly be recommending Dr. Perkins to my friends. He was so patient, kind and explained everything I needed to know about my surgery. He remembers our conversations and shows a genuine interest and concern for his patients. But best of all, he knows what he is doing so patients get the best care/treatment/advice. Thank you Dr. Perkins, I CAN SEE!
