I would highly recommend Dr. Perkins for chiropractic care. I have been a patient of his for a few years and I receive individualized care and treatments. The staff always greet me with a smile and are attentive when I visit the office. I greatly appreciate the ease of rescheduling appointments without jumping through hoops. The office is very accommodating and understanding. I also like that there is a massage therapist on site. I am grateful for the overall improvement of my health.

I suffered debilitating back pain for over 5 months, and chose Lake Erie Spine and Injury Center after a referral from a family member. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Dr Perkins and his staff are the most caring team of medical professionals I have ever encountered. After seeing Dr Perkins only a few times I began to realize relief from my back and hip pain and within 6 weeks I am free of pain and back to all my normal activities. Thank you Dr Perkins and staff!!!!

Dr. Perkins is very professional and kind. He listens to your concerns and makes a treatment plan. He does not try to "sell" you on treatments you don't need like other chiropractors.

Dr.Perkins is one of the best chiropractors I have seen by far. He makes you feel very comforatable. I receive excellent care each time. The hours are very flexible! Most of all my pain is decreasing due to his plan to manage my chronic pain.

Dr Perkins is a very nice, friendly and open doctor. He gets to know each patient and doesn't treat you as just another patient. He recommends great therapy each session and the girls out front and I'm the therapy room are amazing. Again they get to know each patient and will actually chat with you. Even when they are busy they take the time to ask how things are going not because they feel they have to but because they care! ??
in Erie,PA |
Dr Perkins is a very knowledgeable and accommodating doctor Dr Perkins is able to explain in a way even non doctors can understand his patients conditions and his treatment plan Dr Perkins is very welcoming and has always conversed with us about many subjects during appointments Dr Perkins also has been very kind when I've had to bring my children with me (all four of them) and has taken the time to explain things in the office and what he's doing when they've asked questions Overall he's great
in Erie, PA |
The arthritis, degenerative discs and bone spurs in my lower back can be very painful, especially when the spurs pinch a nerve. For a while I could only sleep sitting up. When I tried to lie down the pain in my leg was unbearable. First I tried a physical therapist. Treatment was painful and didn't help. I quit and then went to Dr Perkins as my family doctor advised in the first place. It took several weeks but each time I went it felt better. Soon I was lying down to sleep with no pain!
