I felt like Dr. Perkins was uninterested in answering any questions, like my appointment as an something to be got through. I did ask anything it was as if I was creating a problem. It just felt unfriendly and it made it very hard to get the information I needed. Since this appointment was out of network to me it was like I wasted $100.

If you want to be talked AT go to Dr Perkins. I do not recommend her at all. Answered a question I never asked. Did not help. In her own space not able to listen or relate.

Didn’t spend any time actually examining me before trying to prescribe orthotics. I didnt feel like I was getting real medical care and advice - more as if I was an inconvenience and a possible sucker that may buy their product - their orthotics. I left this appointment with the same questions I had going in and didn’t feel like I made any progress in addressing my issue whatsoever. I will not go here again.

Dr. Perkins is knowledgeable, yet her bedside manner needs a lot of work. She spoke "at" me. She is what I might term a "refrigerator doctor." Cold, uninterested, visibly uninvolved, professorial. No warmth, no connection to patient. It may have been what I expect (and not others), so I do not want to say, do not go. But she needs to work on her manner. This is obviously a young woman who has worked hard to get where she is (she knows her stuff). But the manner needs work.

Went to see Dr. Perkins because of bunion. She took some x-rays but didn't examine my foot (even though the last time I saw her was over a year ago). She suggested orthotics and surgery. I wasn't feeling totally comfortable so I pursued a 2nd opinion from an orthopedic surgeon. I was surprised to find that he didn't agree with her on some key areas. Turns out that I DON'T have flat feet, orthotics wouldn't be beneficial and I'm not ready for surgery. Bottom line - ALWAYS get a second opinion.

Bad practice, unprofessional doctor. Officious, unethical, interested in selling their own products, not prescribing things that work. Did not examine my foot, looked at it from several feet away. Their non-prescription med did not work at all. I will never see them again and never recommend them.

I am so pleased with Dr. Perkins' care that I find myself recommending her, any time I have an opportunity to do so. From the initial 2 hour consultation, when she presented all of my options and made sure I made my own surgical choice, to her unwillingness to be pinned down on time frames she cannot accurately predict, I trust every detail of her care.

Dr. Perkins is wonderful! Had professionalism not been an issue, I would've hugged her after my procedure. She addressed an ingrown toenail for me. I've been through the procedure twice before and was nervous about the pain I anticipated. She took time to ask me what would make me feel more comfortable during the procedure. She tilted the chair back so I couldn't see what she was doing and, on my request, made small talk with me the whole time so I couldn't focus on what she was doing to my foot

She ruined my foot! Poured too much medicine on my wound which burnt and blistered the surrounding skin! Haven't been able to walk or do daily activities properly. Can't wear footwear without pain. The cream she prescribed for her mistake (that I had to pay for!?) doesn't even work. It's been seven weeks and skin is still blistering!
