Trustworthy and Efficient
I’ve been a patient for nearly a decade. Dr. Perkins runs a top notch practice. The front desk staff are organized and efficient. Dr. Perkins himself has always been informed and kind, ensuring my concerns are heard and tended to. No freckle or mole goes unnoticed. I also appreciate how precise and thorough he’s able to be, yet quick. I trust his expertise, and would recommend him to anyone.

I've been a patient for Dr. Perkins for years but on my most recent visit he told me to take off my mask because COVID-19 is over. After explaining to him I have a young child, family with compromised immune systems and myself having a chronic condition making me more likely due complications he proceeded to argue with me about it and dig in even more. He did my skin test (seemingly rushed) but didn't tell me if I checked out ok. While this was a very bizarre and unpleasant experience what was even more troubling is that I learned he did the same thing with my friend two months ago during the height of Delta! Time to find a new derm.

I made an appointment for IPL to my face. When the doctor came in he did a mole check and focused on a suspicious looking mole. He had it removed and sent for a biopsy that day. He told me that would be 7 days for results. I heard nothing from the office either way. Three weeks went by and I was on a family vacation in a remote area with poor cell coverage. I started receiving messages from the doctor that he needed to speak with me and could leave results on voicemail. He would not leave a number to reach him and told me he was calling from a 'blocked number', which is absolutely insane! This raised a red flag for me.... a doctor who made nearly impossible to reach! On top of poor communication, the costs ran over $1,100 with insurance (BCBS). I found everything about the experience very rushed, lacking in communication and left will a big bill that no one had the time to explain. I would not recommend.

Dr. Perkins is phenomenal! This was my first visit to him; and I was so worried about a skin condition that I had. Dr. Perkins immediately knew exactly what it was, explained that it was nothing serious (as I had been thinking!), explained how/why it occurs, and then, described the treatment for it (very simple and easy). Dr. Perkins was so incredibly reassuring -- and kind. I feel beyond-lucky that I "found" Dr. Perkins. Dr. Perkins is absolutely one of the best dermatologists in the entire DC/Virginia/Maryland area.

I get checked every year because my older brother had melanoma. I was happy to hear that, in general terms, I looked okay. I was also relieved that when Dr. Perkins found a very small growth on my face that was precancerous, he was able to treat it immediately.
