Dr. Perkins is amazing. I love him, I wish he could be my PCP. He is never in a hurry. He doesnt seem to hide anything, he seems to be straight forward and honest which is what you want when you have cancer. If you can get Dr. Perkins I am sure you are in the best of care. I cannot thank him enough.

He’s a great doctor and he has great medical assistance, but the office staff who are at the front desk to answer the phones are extremely rude.

I was very satisfied with Dr. Perkins and feel that he provided excellent care for my condition. He is very enthusiastic about the new imuno-therapy drugs now available for treatment of certain types of cancer. In my case, he was able to prescribe a treatment with a new generation drug that eliminated the need for major facial surgery. My skin cancer is in complete remission and has not returned in over a year. He is very professional and thoroughly knowledgeable about the latest advances in treatments.

Extremely unfair treatment to us: seeing this doctor is a nightmare, I spent 4 weeks to schedule an appointment with Dr. Perkins for my dad for his cancer, spent so much time back and forth to get the medical records , call to schedule, when we got in his office, we have been told our record not in their system, and we have to go home and call back later. This is totally disgrace, and wasted patient's time , especically for a cancer patient's life.

No bedside manner. Rushing you in and out like cattle. Does not listen to the patient. His staff talks about him behind his back so to me that speaks volumes. Has written prescription incorrectly several times always have to double check them which is not yhe patients job. Does not communicate a treatment was denied by insurance he knrw the day befor appointment did not let us know so went in for nothing..well he got paid for an office visit and blood draw which was unnecessary..all about the $$
