Waiting time was a bit long, but I think that had to do more with other people walking in without a scheduled appointment, clogging up the logs and causing confusion. Heads up for this office in particular but any office, reallY)- MAKE AN APPOINTMENT! It’s just plain rude for everyone who’s there to be seen, and for the professionals who are treating you! Dr. Perkins is WONDERFUL! Incredible bedside manner, immediately addressed my specific medical concern while also doing overall check ups. She also went out of her way to give me recommendations for other things I will most likely need in the future; i.e. a therapist, a psychiatrist, an allergist, etc... Within a day, I have my new prescription and I’m ready to go! Despite the wait time, I would highly recommend this office!

Very kind, and professional. Despite her youth, she’s well versed in “old school” techniques (a surprise- coming from a medical background myself), modern medicine, AND more natural alternatives too. Heard me out, gave excellent suggestions.Very trustworthy. Support staff is awesome, they also drew blood right in the office. Truly a great medical experience.

Dr. Perkins was extremely kind and a great listener. This was my first visit and I had a lot of concerns and because I had focused on being a caretaker to someone else and not me, she talked with me tohelp me get back on track with my health. I truly appreciate a doctor was really listens to a patient and that is what I got with Dr. Perkins. If you are looking for a great doctor that will take their time and listen you will find it in Dr. Perkins

Dr. Perkins was very kind and knowledgeable. She was calm and made me feel comfortable during the exam. However, I spent nearly 2 hours in the office though due to extensive wait to be seen and then they had her seesomeone before me on accident. The conditions of the space were very clean and comfortable and the additional staff were professional as well. Overall, I would recommend this office but be wary of long wait times!!

My visit with Arlene was ok. I went for my annual physical and communicated some concerns. As I expressed my concerns and what I think the causes were, she started to antagonize and came off passive aggressive towards me which mademe feel uncomfortable and not comforting at all. I definitely agreed with her on the next steps, but it definitely came off judgemental. After the appointment was done, when she said have a good day, her back was turned towards me, and she just left. Doctors like her are why people are not so forthcoming with their health history.

She was probably the sweetest doctor I’ve ever met and very humble, hard working, and thorough and conscientious. Maybe they are over booking her schedule and not giving her enough time to spend with everyone because she was fast but the schedule was behind. Thank you!
