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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
