Verified Patient Reviews
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 see someone 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 made me 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.
I always feel comfortable with the all of the staff at Cornell Weill. Everyone is polite and respectful and professional! I get all of my questions answered by Dr. Perkins and she is also so welcoming, pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks for another great visit!
She was so thoughtful and informative, and took everything I had to say into account and really listened to me and my concerns. She really embodied everything I look for in a doctor. I'm so so glad I found her and will definitely be going back!
Great experience ! Dr Perkins was caring and thorough. Im so relieved I found her ! Highly reccomend.
Dr. Perkins is very patient and attentive, would definitely recommend
Good Visit, Clear and Concise we working on GOALS for 2018! Better Health and Wellness
Since this was my first visit I was very impressed with the services that I received. The staff were very helpful and very pleasant. I have an appointment for next month
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!
Love the doctors staff and the office
She's great - made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.
The receptionist was well mannered, the nurse who took my blood pressure an drew my blood is an angel. Doctor Perkins is well rounded and in-depth. I am very glad that I chose her , the staff at Weill Cornell Medical are very professional even when checking out the check out receptionist is well mannered and polite.
My only complaint is that we forgot to talk about one of my reasons for visiting, but it was our first meeting so we had a lot to go over.
Staff was very helpful and helped calm my nerves (I'm not great with needles). Dr Perkins was funny and personable and talked me through things.
Great staff, nice venue and a wonderful doctor who is very concise and focused. Great experience so far - this was my first appointment.
She takes her time and is very thorough. She’s not pushy at all. She ask questions and don’t pressure you to do anything but she gives advice.
Very professional very comfortable to talk with.
Dr. Perkins has a great bedside manner and is very kind. However, I had a terrible experience with her office and additional staff. The first time I got a test done, it took three calls to her office to finally get my results. The second time I got tests done it took SIX calls, two online messages, and three weeks before anyone contacted me about my tests. Every single time I called they gave me a different answer ranging from "the doctor isn't in" to "the tests aren't done" to, my favorite, "we already shared them." I was sick, in pain, and incredibly stressed out. Finally I went to another doctor where I got my results in 24 hours and they were able to put me on a treatment plan. The whole ordeal was miserable and I'm never going back. I would not wish it on anyone.
Very attentive. Complete
She was thorough and listened and took action on the things I was concerned about. Fantastic doctor!!
Dr. Perkins is very pleasant and thorough.
I got to the office about 15 minutes early and there were a fair number of people in the waiting room. It may have just been busy but I didn’t get much of a greeting or any forms to fill out until maybe 30 minutes or longer of waiting. All interactions with the staff after the forms were totally fine, and Dr. Perkins was a very sweet person. Informative and understanding, and I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all during the exam or question segment.
My visits go well as usual. She get straight to the point and always explain things to make me understand.
Dr. Perkins is very professional, yet warm personable. She was very thorough and took time to address all my questions and concerns.
Wonderful doctor - very attentive and caring. I recommend all my friends to Dr Perkins!
She didn't talk down to me which was nice.
Very thorough! She will let you know if she doesn't agree with you, but she won't rid you of your concern either.... She is pretty good!
Staff and Doctor both friendly and professional. No complaints.
Dr. Perkins took the time to get to know me and find out the reasons I was there. She reviewed my medical history and gave a referral to see another doctor.
Overall a good visit, Dr. Perkins was friendly and flexible. However, I did disclose a history of eating disorder on my intake paperwork and the nurses still told me my current weight, which I would rather not have known as it triggered a return to unhealthy eating habits.
Dr. Perkins was very attentive and inforamtive. She didn't make me feel insecure for asking questions about what I didn't understand. I felt very comfortable and comforted and welcomed at this facility from the moment I walked in the door. thank you!
Dr. Arlene was thorough and thoughtful during my new-patient visit. I immediately felt comfortable with her. The office was modern, clean and a highly professional environment. My search for a PCP in Brooklyn is over.
She's very kind and knowledgeable, and I felt comfortable with her right away.
Very personable and professional. I felt that it was easy to be clear and forthcoming with her regarding my background and current issues.
I felt comfortable in the office, because there were lots of people who seemed like me, and the office staff was very composed and prompt and helpful. I felt like the MA didn't super inspire my confidence because she had issues with the computer and asked me if I was transsexual (I'm cisgender female). I was trying to kindly correct her confusing language and prompt her to better read the online form but then she corrected herself and said, "So you were born female?" which I found kind of upsetting overall, but am also like, hey I'll meet you where you're at, I just sincerely hope that she doesn't do that to the next person. At first I was a little confused because there was some kind of room mix-up that resulted in me waiting about 5 minutes after she said hi to me, lol. Dr. Perkins was attentive and perhaps a little flustered at first due to aforementioned mixup -- she seemed to have a lot of thoughts in her head for a second. But after that initial confusion, she was didactic and thoughtful in her approach to explaining the different methods we could use to address my litany of health issues given a recent move to the city. I felt comfortable and better because she took all of my issues seriously and didn't let me forget what I was talking about - as I am wont to do. I don't know how to explain it, but we vibed really well, even though I was initially like "wait, a doctor is listening to me?" My parents are doctors so I bring my own baggage with me wherever I go. She didn't exude confidence, perhaps that was what I was initially picking up on, but made up for it in actual skill, which I much prefer. I will definitely go back to her; I felt like we connected, and even if we hadn't, she was smart and capable.
She is awesome. So kind and she never ever dismisses my concern even when I'm there for new issues, she always asks about the previous ones She always makes sure she isn't doing anything unnecessary that would not be covered by my insurance but she is still proactive. If she ever leaves I'm going to have an issue. The entire staff is nice and patient with me and even my very curious and talkative 4-year old daughter. The biggest plus is that they see at your appt time now 20 mins after.
Very helpful, non-judgemental, thorough
my appointment was great! Dr. Perkins was very nice, very direct and took her time. I will deffinitly be seeing her again.
Dr Perkins has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever been to--I'm so used to doctors either being condescending or overly casual that I was incredibly relieved to be a patient for someone who seemed simply knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. She takes everything I bring up seriously and is patient and helpful in talking through concerns in addition to scheduling any necessary lab work or follow ups. Also the other staff at the clinic are always friendly, which makes things easier.
I really enjoyed my experience, from the office staff, to the nurse, to Doctor Perkins - it was overall a very enjoyable visit.
My only complaint would be the wait time. Everything was great!
She was so... Professional and courteous.
Dr. Perkins was great, she took the time to ask questions and talk to me before making suggestions/a diagnose. Did not rush and felt honest and sincere.
Arlene was thorough and pleasant, great bedside manner and concern that she addresses the details. Her and her team seem to enjoy eachother and what they do which makes for a nice experience. Conveniently located in a clean modern facility.
Everyone is AMAZING in that office!
Dr. Perkins was very attentive. She asked the right questions and listened. She also made me feel very comfortable!
Dr. Perkins was very professional& friendly. She explained everything patiently to me.Although our visit took more than 15 min she did not skip anything in terms of my needs. I was a bit nervous at first but felt very comfortable with her as my PCP.
Doctor Perkins is a very genuine, caring and concerned doctor. I always feel satisfied with each visit. Very thorough, clear and concise when discussing health concerns and treatment plans.
Dr. Perkins is one of if not the best doctor that I have had the pleasure of seeing. She is very attentive and makes the doctor patient experience very pleasant. The wait time was reasonable and I didnt feel rushed during my appointment with her.
Shes an amazind doc... thorough attentice i love herr
The sweetest doctor you'll ever meet!
other then the very long wait after my appointment time to see the doctor, everything else was fine.
It was our first meeting, very early in the morning, lots of calls coming in but Dr. Perkins was pretty nice. She maintained her composure and was pretty thorough and accommodating.
I had a 9am appointment and didn't leave the office until 11am. Granted I did arrive 3 minutes late but I don't think that should have caused me to have a 2 hour physical. The nurse I had was very kind and efficient and once the doctor came in she addressed my questions very helpfully. I emphasized that I wanted to discuss health/nutrition and she based her feedback around that which was great!
Love her! If you need a PCP she's hands down the best and I have complicated specialist needs.
Dr. Perkins was personable and professional. Been looking for a new pcp and I'm glad found her.
She is patient, up to date with the latest research, empathetic, and straightforward. It was a great experience
Great overall experience, I'm happy that Dr. Perkins is my PCP!!!
very professional, thorough and pleasant
Wonderful doctor. She communicates well ans i didn't feel like i was not heard!
Awesome office. Amazing bedside manner. Will definitely return
Everything was solid. Clean place, nice staff. The nurse was professional but funny and easy to talk to; I think her name was Lisa. The Doc was a bit brief with me, she kind of made up her mind right away which was a little disconcerting, but then again I was only going in for a cold/allergies so nothing serious. Over all a great place.
Professional and to the point. Also asks about mental and emotional health as well, which I really liked.
Dr. Perkins was easy to talk to, and helped me with any questions I had. I will definitely be back!
Great bedside manner. Thoughtful, patient and caring.
I had such a positive experience with this doctor! I felt listened to and I felt Dr. Perkins truly cared about me and my well-being. I'm so grateful to have found such a rad primary care physician!
From the time I walked in to when I walked out, I felt safe and at ease. The waiting area was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were friendly. The nurse was friendly and showed she cared. She was good at keeping me distracted when I had my blood drawn. Dr. Perkins was wonderful. She was thorough and took the time to listen to my concerns.
The receptionist were very helpful. RN Kim was very sweet and took down my history and vitals quickly. Almost as soon as she was done, Dr. Perkins came in. She was thorough, knowledgeable and kind. This was my first visit to establish a PCP through my current insurance and I definitely think I found an excellent one in Dr. Perkins and the team at Sunrise Medical.
Reasonable wait and a great doctor. Great listener and she truly cares
Professional and friendly. Will be going again.
The office was clean, quiet, and organized. All the staff was friendly and quick! Appointment started on time. Dr. Perkins was great! She asked questions and got to know me. No judgement in her tone. Worked quickly but carefully. Awesome visit.
Dr. Perkins is great! She and her staff are kind, funny and thorough. Best doc I've had in a long time!
She was very patient. Exhibited a true compassion for my health care. Took time with me and I did not feel like I was on a patient assembly line. Office and bathrooms very clean.
Such an amazing doctor. You can tell she enjoys what she does.
Dr. Perkins is the first PCP who has ever made me feel comfortable enough to really ask questions and get the help I need. She is funny, empathetic, and effective. She isn't overly quick to prescribe unnecessary medication, isn't patronizing, has very convenient availability, has successfully helped me through a handful of different health issues, and is just so reasonable in a way that makes my previous doctors seem like schmucks. Highly recommend.
With this being my first time trying out this Clinic I felt very comfortable and dr. Perkins made it very at ease and assisting me I will definitely recommend her services
Nice and professional. Though this was only a routine well-visit so not much to tell
Kind. Very thorough. No long wait and she was very patient.
Very nice lady. Attentive to all your concerns and good memory retention. Good about following through and understand a lot of issues concerning a being.
Dr. Perkins is very thorough and patient. I love that I can see all my information and communicate with her online.
I Recieved great care from Dr . Perkins , Kim and the receptionists. They were all friendly, knowledgable and thorough in explaining any questions I had.
She was helpful and interested in what I had to say. This was my first visit with her, but she seemed knowledgeable.
Way too long of a wait time. Way too many apologies with no real effort to recrify the situation.
Dr. Perkins was thoughtful, thorough, and generous with her time and attention. She didn't make me feel bad for not following up on visits with a previous doctor who made me feel uncomfortable and focused on ways we could move forward together.
Dr. Perkins was very kind and knowledgeable. I'm glad I chose her as my PCP.
It was my first visit with Dr. Perkins. She was patient and thorough and genuinely cared about my concerns. She was very nice and took her time. Everyone in the office was pleasant. The wait time was very short as well.
She listens . She didnt doen play my concerns
Dr. Perkins and her nurses and technicians were outstanding in their service and bedside manner. The receptionist upon check in could use some training in customer service. If the practice was judged based soley on my initial impression, this would have been a very different review.
Excellent doctor; very attentive, listened thoroughly, and answered each of my questions and concerns. Happy with the course of treatment.
Approachable, empathetic, and genuine.
Dr. Perkins was professional and approachable. Easy to talk to and a good listener. I'm glad a found a doctor I like and trust in the neighborhood.
Dr. Perkins was very knowledgeable and thorough. She also had a great bedside manner. She eased my nerves and made sure I understood the treatment I needed to receive. Great doctor!
Best doctor I've seen since I've moved to NY
She is really great! Thorough, kind, and clearly very good at what she does.
As a medical professional myself, I have to say that I am very impressed with Dr. Perkins professionalism, attentiveness, knowledge and excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend her and it is clear why she has such wonderful ratings.
Truly appreciated her attentiveness and professionalism. Staff was very accommodating. There was a schedule mixup that resultred in over 2hr process but the quality of service made up for it and put me as a patient at ease.
Dr. Perkins was awesome she was well-informed and able to help me as well as recommend specialists I would need for my issue.
Great experience. Dr. Perkins and her staff were friendly, professional and clear.
The doctor was really good, very professional, clear, intelligent, thorough and nice. Spent a lot of time and got a very complete history and addressed all my questions and needs. The office is basic but clean and cheerful. Equipment looks new and up to date. I liked the phlebotomist. the admin staff were fine: some good some not so good. In particular I had a very hard time communicating with the woman who took me to the exam room. She pressed me for several minutes to select a pharmacy, which I didn't want to do until after seeing the doctor, and told her so. this was not an answer she was able to process (blank stare and repeating the question over and over). Then she only would let me select chain pharmacies. My pharmacy is not a chain and because I didn't have cell service I couldn't look up the number. I didn't understand why I needed to tell them my pharmacy (I'm old fashioned and used to getting paper scrips that I can take wherever I want.) She was never mean or hostile just a "does not compute" sort of reaction from her. It seemed very odd. This wasn't a big deal --it doesn't mean you shouldn't go to this office--but it added a twilight zone-sh discomfort to the visit before the doctor came. Anyway aside from that no problem. It looks like they do some testing onsite = faster results. So all in all good. Definitely the DOCTOR is good.
Very astute and always listens to her patient. Very patience alsong with good bedside manner.
Thorough, knows her stuff.
Dr. Perkins was very thorough with a pleasant demeanor. I have been looking for a primary care doctor in my area, and I think I finally found one.
I thought Dr. Perkins was so friendly and relateable. I felt supported and not judged at all by her and I definitely plan on going back!
Dr. Perkins had a calming manner and was lovely to work with. All the staff in the office were pleasant and friendly and I was able to schedule an appointment right away. The waiting room was a bit crowded, but moved pretty quickly - I waited less than 30 minutes. Would recommend!
I arrived very early but the wait was still pretty short. Everyone I was saw was warm and professional.
Dr. Perkins is thorough, personable, and takes the time to explain everything to me, which is great.
Dr Perkins is the only primary care physician I've ever had who actually seems to care how I am doing. She is patient and honest, and unlike other doctors I've seen, doesn't jump to conclusions. I'm lucky to have her. The other people at the office are also great. No one is ever rude or makes me feel uncomfortable, and even the guy who draws my blood (same guy every time so far) is pleasant and cool. This whole place is awesome.
She's nice, I just waited a while to be seen.
Dr. Perkins is lovely, and very attentive. She listens and gives you as much time as you need to explain yourself/symptoms. I ultimately had to get blood drawn (never a favorite), however, the lady who took my blood (Giselle?) couldn't have been nicer! She put me at ease, and was brilliant at making the process quick and painless.
It was great
Office has an EXTREMELY long wait ! But this doctor is so amazing that I don't mind going. She's kind, efficient, fast, caring, knowledgeable and patient. I'm very happy to be her patient!
GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL. Really spent the time to get to know me and my daily habits, etc. Very, very thorough.
Long, long wait (over 1.5 hours) and not a thorough check up. I ended up at another doctors 2 days later. It's a shame as the doctor was lovely.
Very thorough, even tjough i have an extensive medical history she made sure that everything was complete even got me a referral to add to my list of medical MD, i even scheduled an appt for my husband
Dr. Perkins is awesome. She listened carefully to my symptoms and made very thoughtful, holistic health decisions. She's also very responsive. When I've called her office with follow-up questions, she's been able to hop right on the phone and help me immediately - an incredibly rare level of service. She's my new permanent PCP!
Dr Perkins was thorough, pleasant and polite. The overall clinic experience was as unimpressive as one has come to expect. There were long waits and I spent a total of 1.5 hrs at the clinic for a simple annual exam. I did a lot of waiting around (first in reception for 20 mins, then in the exam room for 25 mins, then 10 mins waiting for the blood test). The staff did not manage expectations for these wait times and each time said 'they'll be right with you". The surgery is very large with many rooms, but it's quite empty and leaves the impression that not much is happening. The majority of the staff act as if they don't want to be there, but are pleasant when you put on your best charm.
The doctor was lovely but the wait time was way too long.
She was very nice and knowledgeable. I felt at ease talking to Dr. Perkins about my concerns. She also followed up with me after to ensure I was better.
Great experience as always
This was my first visit. She was very nice and pleasant! Very helpful.
Visit was great. Dr. Perkins was very kind and explained everything to me, very thoroughly. I'll definitely go back!
A little bit of a wait but it was worth it because this doctor is excellent. This doctor is patient, helpful, informative and kind. Excellent doctor! I will be seeing her again.
I love Dr. Perkins! She's now my PCP because of how well my two appointments with her have gone. She explains her diagnosis thoroughly and calls in a week later to check in, in-case the medication/treatment is working.
After a couple successful visits booked through Zocdoc I made Dr. Perkins my primary care doctor, She's always helpful and thorough and very friendly, and makes sure to follow up on my visits afterward and check in about problems I've had in the past. Sometimes the wait at the office is long but overall I would definitely recommend!
Dr. Perkins was very kind and thoughtful, but didn't seem the most knowledgable about the issue I came in for. She prescribed me a catch-all treatment and said to follow up if the condition didn't get better, so here's hoping it will — but I didn't leave the office as confident as I'd have liked to be that recovery is on the horizon.
Arlene was very sweet and thorough with the entire process. She was very patient for all the questions I had.
My appointment was at 10:00 a.m., and I was called in to the office at 11:30 a.m. The service was fine afterward.
I made a awesome decision in switching docters. My 1st visit with her was very pleasant. Not only does she go thoroughly through your health history, but also takes the time to know her patients on a personal level. Two thumbs up!!
Dr.Perkins was very pleasant n professional. The office workers was also on schedule and polite. Great experience overall
She was very professional and attentive!
Dr Perkins was warm, caring, friendly and very knowledgeable! I saw her as well as my 21 year old daughter and we both were very satisfied!
Dr Perkins is an excellent physician. In my visit with her, she was friendly, attentive, and took great care in examining me. The entire staff at the office in fact were courteous, professional, and helpful. I am very glad to have her as my PCP.
Dr. Perkins was outstanding. She is a doctor that genuinely cares about her patients. She took her time. I didn't feel rushed at all. I'm so happy I found her!
The entire staff is so personable and delightful I didn't even notice I was waiting for a little bit. Arlene is very sweet and helpful.
Very professional but approachable, she takes a thorough approach to primary care. For example, I received several referrals for preventative care from specialists.
Dr. Perkins was personable and thorough. She answered all my questions and when I left, staff gave me the printed follow-up information Dr. Perkins and I discussed during my appointment and also set up a consultation I requested.
critically informative and professionally personable.
Dr. Perkins is awesome! Caring and calm, really like and feel very comfortable with her.
She was very pleasant and soft spoken. She recommended I get my flu shot then and there so I did. All in all a good visit.
Pleasant, informative and genuinely concerned. Comfortable experience overall.
Dr. Arlene Perkins was amazing! She is very personable, listens and actually focuses on what you're saying. She had an intern? maybe or a doctor in training who took care of most of the preliminary questions and chat, but when she arrived in the room she made sure to follow up. I highly recommend Dr. Arlene Perkins
Dr Perkins was very kind and had a great bedside manner. She took her time doing the exam and made sure to ask if I had any questions. The staff that did the pretesting and blood work were very efficient.
Shes such a sweet doctor. Patient and kind. What more can you ask for!
She was very thorough and engaged during my visit with her. Also very transparent with what kind of testing she was doing/what she is looking for. Kind, knowledgable and did not jump to give me antibiotics which I really respect!
Dr. Perkins was an incredibly friendly, kind & thorough doctor. She talked me through all of the things I had expressed concern with & helped me take the next steps in getting these issues addressed. I wasn't looking forward to coming to the doctor today but she made the appointment rather enjoyable. I'm glad I chose to go to her!
Approachable, thorough and professional. Really enjoyed my visit with Dr Perkins
I was very pleased with the treatment I received from Dr . Perkins and all the staff from beginning to end. The facility is much agree than I realized an easily accessible.
Great attentive doctor. Very precise leaving no areas or concerns unaddressed.
Overall good. The wait was longer than I was expecting and it was a little disorganized but I got in and out once I was actually seen.
She's great but the 40 minute wait time was ridiculous considering it was an 8:30 AM appointment.
I usually don't iike doctors but I felt very comfortable with her. Very professional and answered all of my concerns. Great experience.
Dr. Perkins was very professional and took her time to listen to all of my concerns.
As much as one can enjoy going to the doctor, I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Perkins. She was warm, didn't rush me, and seemed very knowledgeable about a relatively obscure issue. I'm definitely planning to make her my PCP.
The office was great, very welcoming, helpful and friendly. I didn't feel rushed by the doctor and she saw me right away. Easy location to get to as well.
Amazing service by all of the stuff in the office. Friendly demeanor and beyond helpful and comforting.
Dr. Perkins is a wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. She is professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
Good visit as always. Her bedside manner is good along with her ability to deduce what the health issue is. Her office was clean and the receptionist staff was very helpful. Would recommend her again.
My first visit with Dr. Perkins was wonderful! Dr. Perkins made me feel very comfortable and her bedside manner was remarkable. I loved the fact that she was extremely patient with me and her personality was very pleasant. So content that I selected Dr. Perkins as my PCP and look forward to our future visits.
Dr. Perkins was great! However, it took forever to be seen - I have no idea if there were extenuating circumstances or not, but it was a little irritating.
She is a fantastic doctor, the appointment did NOT feel rushed or anything, she took the time to hear what I had to say and answer any of my questions.
Paperwork was all done very quickly. Even though I was asked to repeat All the info i had given on ZocDoc. The office is clean, bright and spacious. Everything is efficient but still Dr. Perkins was warm, understanding and all around thoughtful
I waited over 45 minutes, because the admin forgot to check me in. That was the most unfortunate part of the visit. I would definitely visit the Dr again. The facilities were new and clean.
My visit with Dr. Perkins was great! She answered all my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I forgot to bring some forms that needed to be completed. To avoid an additional trip Dr. Perkins offered to print them. That NEVER happens. Dr. Perkins is the BEST!
She took her time to listen to all of my complaints and was very thorough with her recommendations.
I love Dr. Perkins! The wait time isn't wonderful, but she is. Well worth it b
Dr. Perkins is pretty wonderful. I get nervous with new doctors, because you never know if they will be dismissive, trying to rush you out, or if the wait will be a million years. Also, I want a doctor to be a little friendly (obviously not a requirement.) She is friendly, took her time explaining things to me, and has been straight to the point. Her staff is also warm, but focused. The office itself is spotless!
Dr. Perkins was so easy to talk to and very down to earth. Was clear, to the point, and friendly and made the visit enjoyable! Staff was also very nice and the office was new and clean. I was seen right away but it was a mid-day appointment so I'm not sure if that made a difference. I'd suggest going between 11 and 2:30 pm to avoid a wait. I'm also very impressed with the Weil Cornell system overall. They have an online portal for patients to request referrals, make appointments, etc, and clearly have a high standard to uphold. Definitely glad I went with this practice and overall medical group :)
Dr. Perkins was great. She actually cared what was going on with me, and she was incredibly nice. This is the first doctor I actually trusted.
Waited for more than an hour. Your appointment time means nothing here. They shuffled me from room to room to make me think I was going to be seen "any minute". I wish they would be more honest about appointment times and be more considerate of the patients.
Dr. Perkins was very kind & adressed nearly all my concerns. I will definitely be returning to see her.
Dr. Perkins and her entire staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Everything was very organized and straight forward. Very short wait time.
Dr. Perkins we very sweet and talk through all of my questions with me. I only went for a physical but if I need a quick check up I would totally return.
Great doctor but the wait was crazy. Still would recommend her but I might do a very early morning appt to attempt to avoid such a long wait.
She's a really sweet Doctor. Very pleasant lady. Very caring about your Health.
She made me feel comfortable I didn't feel like I was being rushed so she could take the next patient. I'll definitely recommend a family or friend to her
She is really caring and knowledgeable . I would definitely recommend her
I had a great first visit with Dr. Perkins. She is very professional and nice. I was impressed with her knowledge and how easy it was to talk to her. The office staff was wonderful too.
Everyone at the clinic was very professional, courteous and friendly
I had a good experience with Arlene Perkins. She asked a lot of relevant questions and had no problems with answering mine. She was patient and understanding. The staff was quick, laid back and knew what they were doing. I was in and out in an hour.
Dr. Perkins was very thorough during my visit. Plus she has a nice personality. The office was clean and spacious. Will definitely be back.
She was great! Very nice, not rushed at all, felt comfortable asking questions.
Very thorough, spends her time with you, considers all concerns and causes to find the root of the problem. Overall- efficient and thorough and relatively quick.
Very please with my overall experience with this practice and very pleased by Dr Perkins throughout examination. I will come back definitely
She was amazing. Her bedside manner is great. I am a new patient of hers and we managed to get all the bases covered.
Dr. Perkins is a thoughtful and caring doctor. She listened to my concerns and answered my questions in a polite and professional manner.
This was my first time seeing a PCP in a few years. Doctor Perkins had a great bedside manner, was friendly and professional. I have felt rushed in the past with other physicians ; however, Dr. Perkins spent a good deal of time with me and listened to all of my concerns. I would highly reccomend her!
Dr. Perkins was very thorough in her question asking and follow up and made sure that I received all the blood tests necessary for my yearly physical. The staff was friendly and communicative. The wait was about an hour, but my appointment was at the end of the day and the checked in on me often.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Perkins and I really loved her - she made me feel comfortable instantly and I felt like she was thorough and thoughtful. I only hesitate to say I would highly recommend because the wait time was ridiculous (as indicated in other reviews). I had at least an hour and a half between checking in and seeing the doctor. Ultimately I'd rather deal with the wait for the right doctor than get in quickly for one I don't love, so for me I will stick with her. Would also add that everyone in the office is super friendly and personable and the office itself is very clean and feels new. If they could cut down the wait time this place would be perfect.
Dr. Perkins was sweet, thorough and non judgemental. She didn't rush my appointment and took the time to listen to all my issues. I did have to wait a bit to see her (maybe because I was a new patient) but once I was in the room she gave me her complete attention.
She was wonderful. Very nice and helpful.
Dr Perkins took her time in examining and listening to my questions. I would definitely recommend her. She is also super friendly and detailed!
She was very professional, very kind and up to date the latest medicines and remedies. 100 recommend.
Really attentive, explains medications well.
First impressions are lasting as they say... So I am proud to say that after changing my insurance two years ago, I have finally found my PCP! Dr. Perkins was cheery, very informative and knows her stuff! She made me feel comfortable speaking on all subjects of my health. I am sure she will be great for years to come! I have already began to refer her to my colleagues after just one visit lol. See you soon Doc! <3
