Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Perkinson has been caring for Texans for over 20 years. He completed medical school at the University of South Carolina in 1992, and Baylor College of Medicine's Department of Family and Community Medicine residency in 1998. He embraced his initial private practice experience in south Texas, starting one of the state's first completely paperless medical offices, developing and refining workflows for a more rewarding experience for all. Following a transition to the north Houston area, he returns to his primary care roots in Vector Health, a company he formed for the express purpose of providing effective solutions to the many flaws in the American healthcare system. Americans need a patient-centric experience, where bureaucracy is marginalized, value realized, and a new respect for health is fostered.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Perkinson is just wonderful! Highly recommend.
I read reviews before I chose Dr. Perkinson....now it's my turn: "He treats the whole person"....he's not only tuned into your health, but your lifestyle and strengths/flaws. I'd nominate him for an award, but I'm sure he'd decline the offer. His brand of personality relaxes the experience and one feels better just knowing his heart is in a good place. Thanks Doc!
Will definitely continue to see this doctor. Very caring, listens to your concerns, makes you feel at ease and that you’re getting the best treatment.
Dr. Perkinson has the best bed side manner I have ever seen. He listens and is sincerely concerned with helping you feel better. His office staff is polite and very professional.
Dr Perkinson is very friendly and understanding and shows empathy and concern. He is very caring and is the first doctor in 20 years that shows an interest in who you are and what you need. I am so grateful to have found him.
Great meeting him today! Made me very comfortable considering it was an uncomfortable situation. I will definitely make him my official primary physician!
Great Doctor. He listened and didnt rush me. Very patient and considerate.
Dr. Perkinson is always amazing! Listens, diagnosis’s and treats the issue every time. Highly recommend his practice and Vector Health to anyone looking for a personal doctor that truly is there to treat you respectfully and with kindness.
Dr. Perkinson is very friendly. He takes time with his patients. I never have to wait in the waiting room. He is a great doctor. Would definitely recommend him to others.
Dr Perkinson and Leslie were absolutely wonderful! Dr Perkinson is a great listener and spent a lot of time to help put me at ease. He also is very knowledgeable. It was a great experience!
After seeking treatment the physician didn't follow through on what was discussed during the visit. Reached out for follow up but no response had been provided.
He is an amazing doctor and has always made me and my family feel comfortable and my children are always at ease. best doctor i have had thus far.
Dr. Perkinson is one down to earth doctor and I would recommend to anyone.. thanks
He is an incredibly kind and patient man. He is also very professional and you can have confidence in his determinations. You can't go wrong with this doctor.
Dr. P listens well and is able to communicate in layman terms your problem and the recommended treatment. He's very professional and personable.
Very thorough. His breadth of knowledge is outstanding. I can recommend him without reservation.
Excellent bedside manner. Dr. Perkinson goes above and beyond to take care of his patients. Despite this being my first appointment with him, he took a significant amount of time to discuss my health from a holistic perspective and didn't just try to treat symptoms.
Extremely pleased with visit.
Certainly different from any other Doctors. Excellent bedside manner, very personable and concerning. I was very impressed at the way he took note of Family history and discussed each member briefly to find out more about you and a lifestyle. I would highly recommend this Doctor as well as his 2 very sweet ladies that were on his staff. Nice pleasant office as well. no wait when I was there.
To say I was impressed really doesn’t cover it. Dr. Perkinson is amazing. He has a wonderful manner about him which put me at ease right away. In addition to being knowledgeable, he seems to genuinely care about his patients. He seems to truly be interested in finding answers and acting, or not acting , as appropriate for that patient’s situation . Truly a wonderful experience.
Was extremely happy with experience with Dr. perkinson. Very easy to talk to and simply an old school style doctor who cares about his patients.
he was very personable and to the point. he listened and is thorough.
My visit to Dr Perkinson was very different than any other Dr visit I've had, and that is meant as a huge compliment. He spent a lot of time with me and really wanted to understand me as a patient. It was the opposite of the quick in and out appearances that other doctors make after their nursing staff checks you out. He seems to really care not only about helping his patients but also about making the experience of the visit a good one. Thank you Dr Joe!
Dr. Perkinson listens to the patient and has a great bedside manner. I didn't wait at all for my appointment and all my concerns were addressed. I've had some long-term health issues and have seen many physicians during the last twenty years. I highly recommend Dr. Perkinson.
He is just awesome. I came in because I was feeling ill and even though I was still under the weather when I left, I was smiling. Dr. P. makes you feel like an old friend right away and that your health is a priority.
Dr. Perkinson is by far the most caring and giving doctor that I have ever had. Ever since the first visit, he has given me every detail about what I had and why I was feeling I’ll. He explains everything thoroughly and takes extra time to make sure you’re doing okay.
He has amazing bedside manner. He did one of the most complete history I’ve ever had diagram and all.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Perkinson. He took the time to get to know me and really understand what was wrong. He also made sure I understood treatment options and gave me the chance to decide what route I wanted to take. Highly recommend if you want a Doctor that cares!
He is extremely attentive and focused on helping his patients.
A unique experience. Felt like a consultation rather than being processed. Listened, actually listened to my health issues. Have found a medical professional that inspires confidence.
Dr. Perkinson spent the necessary time in order to get to know me. He was very respectful, kind and compassionate. He treated me with the understanding and made me feel part of the treatment process.
He is awesome! Worked with me on my health and really got to know me and help me. If he is accepting more patience you must see him. He is doing medicine differently.
He was very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. I like that fact that he sees patients after hours, if needed. As a working professional, it works for me.
Great experience, spent 30 mins with my child. Very different approach from the industry norm.
He's a cool dude and a bit unusual from the normal doctor mold (in a totally good way). I appreciated his service and approach.
Hard to describe how Dr. Perkinson’s approach is different from every Doctor that I have met. Go ahead, treat yourself.
Dr. Perkinson was very thorough and spent a lot of time with patient. He listened to concerns and explained treatment modalities thoroughly. He showed a high level of empathy and seems to truly enjoy being a physician--which is rare these days.
Highly recommend Dr Perkinson, the best primary care Dr I ever encountered .
He really considers my thoughts about my treatment and diagnosis and any problems and concerns I am facing, while also making sure he says what he believes what could be wrong and what tests we will run and why. He knows that I'm young and in college, so money isn't something that I really have. My last doctor ordered a lot of tests that ended up costing too much, but this bill was a lot less! Plus, he seems to have ran tests that actually make sense versus running multiple tests because they don't know what to do with me. Of course, my other doctor was amazing, but I think Dr. Perkinson seems to really consider everything, even if I am young.
An Excellent first appointment. Dr. Perkinson is sincerely interested in you and has the patient first attitude. We appreciated his knowledge, experience and sincerity.
Very professional, down to earth, great bedside manner.
Quick and easy. Knowledgeable and courteous.
Great physician and very personable. Based on my visits and my sons visit I would highly recommend Dr. Perkinson.
I needed a dr to do a pre surgery check up and my normal pcp was no longer in my network. Dr Perkinson was by far the best doctor I have ever seen. He took his time to get to know me as well as give me full details on what he is doing. He even suggested I get a second opinion for the surgery and gave me an excellent choice who I will be seeing shortly. He’s very personal and even wrote a personal email after our visit on things he is interested in following up with me on. I have definitely found my new PCP!
Dr. Perskinson was very personal and sat down to actually listen to me. He first started by getting to know me, which I think is great and that many doctor's don't do. He definitely sees me as a person and not just my symptoms! He truly listened to me, and as someone whose been suffering from symptoms like chronic pain for 8 years, I really needed that and someone to tell me, "I believe you." Plus, I love how the first step is lifestyle change instead of immediately trying to give me medicine! He's also really easy to talk to, and knows that I'm only in college, so money isn't something I have right now. I live in Katy so it's about an hour drive, but he is so worth it! Definitely my Primary doctor for now!
Dr. Perkinson was very thorough. Very nice and great bedside manner. He goes out of his way to ensure he knows about you as a patient, and makes sure you aren't just a number. I really appreciate that he requested that I call or email him whenever I need anything! It's so rare that you find a doctor that makes it a point to have contact with his patients in person, via phone or email. Super impressive.
Very personable & cares about getting to no his patients. He spent a lot of time on family history. He seems very reasonable and willing to help even after hours. He was not in a rush to get through our appointment.
Very helpful and thorough.
Dr. P spends a great deal of time with you to makes sure you understand what is going on with your medical condition. He explains the options and ramifications of all options. In other words he takes the time to make you feel like he cares.
The most wonderful MD I have ever met. His bedside manners are impeccable. He shows a personal interest in each patient.
Dr Perkinson, was very professional and knowledgeable., and had a spirit of joy and compassion for the work that he was called to Do! Made us feel very welcomed in his office
A great doctor. Very personable.
Very nice doctor. Very nice staff. Will probably make him my family doctor for all.
A doctor who likes to spend maximum time with the patient with minimal office paper work. Couldn't be happier.
Very professional and acknowledge. He is willing to listen to all your problems and is genuinely interested in finding a solution. He is very polite and has a great sense of humor!
Dr. P is always great! He tells you what he thinks in a pleasant, down to earth way that says he knows what he's talking about, while not talking down at you. He lets you be a full participant and not just an object to be poked and/or prodded.
Dr Perkinson is very kind and great doctor!! He answers all questions I have and My kids like him too. I will recommend to everybody who is looking for a great doctor!!
He is a terrific doctor. Caring and thorough.
Doctor Perkinson is a very caring doctor.
The doctor was super nice and really listened to me and cared about my reason for being there and the reason I had changed doctors. Highly Recommend!
Dr. Perkison was very nice and very helpful.
Dr. Perkinson is a wonderful doctor and an amazing person. I highly recommend him to everyone. He is caring, charismatic, supportive and knowledgeable. He remembers me when I go in and I never wait longer than a couple of minutes, if at all.
Excellent doctor. My 11 year old daughter thought he was great.
Surprising nice doctor. He put my 9 year old at ease who is very anxious with doctors and dentists. Nice, calm and peaceful environment.
Fantastic bedside manners and focus on the issue. Very personable, friendly and compassionate. An overall excellent experience.
I really enjoyed Dr Perkinson, he and his staff are great. I am so happy to find a local Doctor that I am comfortable to go to with any health issue. Also he is available on off hours if there is a emergency to give sound advice. Thank you!
One of the best Doctors I've ever had. Considerate kind and lets you be involved in your health.
Dr. Perkinson is a great doctor. He takes the time to listen, and you can tell he cares about his patients - not just medically, but personally. He's also razor-sharp smart, which is another plus. I'll definitely be back.
Very great person and doctor! Very sympathetic to patient.
Best Doc I have been to in years! Took his time, treated me like a patient, answered my questions, very knowledgeable, highly recommend him.
Went in for the first time on short notice. Very personable and professional with his practice.
Best doctor I have ever seen in 34 years. Absolutely wonderful bedside manner and does all his blood work himself. Listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. Completely grateful our family has found him!!!!
Took care of my issue with professionalism and care!
Very helpful doctor!
Great doctor, really listens to you and gets you in and out quickly. Overall great experience compared to other doctors.
He was so thorough friendly professional. I definitely found my new family practitioner for my whole family!??
This was my first visit to Dr. Perkinson. I was very impressed with how personable he was. He took the time to get to know me and ask questions. I did not feel rushed. I am glad I choose him as my new primary Doctor.
Very professional and straightforward. Very friendly and caring. Just what I was looking for.
Amazing doctor. He was very attentive and responsive to my concerns. Very down to earth and personable. I've found my permanent primary care physician for my family and myself.
The rating might seem misleading - but it's not their fault. The Office personnel (of Dr. Perkinson), to include the Doc, are legit - and I'd recommend them always. Sad to say - the VA Bureaucracy was the problem on my end. 20+ years of service and they FAILED...which will most likely result in friction between myself and this amazing Doctor because the VA will default on payment. If you have Tricare South - you can't use him...despite him being on your "list"...Tricare/Humana changes it all on whim so they don't have to pay. He's awesome, but I don't recommend him if you're a VET because Tricare will force you into messing with his ability to put food on his table.
The best dr. I have ever had
I had been looking for a new pcp since I moved here and Dr. Perkinson was the 3rd doctor. I am VERY big on vibes and feeling like my doctor actually listens to what I am saying and not just giving me meds for what they think it might be. Dr. Perkinson is truly great at making you feel at ease in every way. He's very personable and talks to you not as a doctor would but as a person who understands that his patients have come to him for help and relates to their concerns. If He is uncertain on anything he doesn't GUESS, he's upfront and says just that but makes sure he gets you the answer that you need. He makes himself available anytime of the day by any means of contact, what doctor do YOU know that does this for their patients? NONE! Thank you Zoc Doc I have definitely found my new primary doctor.
This was unlike any doctors appointment I have ever experienced. Every question and concern were answered and I never felt rushed and the doctor and nurse were so genuine and kind.
I found my new doctor. He was wonderful, very attentive and wanted to know about me as a person as well as medically.
Dr. Parkinson has excellent bedside manner and is enthusiastic about medicine. Highly recommended.
We were late for the appointment due to being new to the area. The doctor worked us in and was very thorough with our first appointment. Like him very much.
I have not met a more personable and patient oriented doctor, ever. Thankful to have made this new association.
Really short wait time. Amazing doctor who truly cares about your well being and promotes natural treatments and healthy ways of living.
Dr.P was fantastic! He was very friendly and made me feel at ease throughout the entire appointment. I would highly recommend him!
This was my first visit as I am a new patient with Dr. Perkinson. I can honest say that I have never had a doctor take the time to learn my family history as he did. Great bed side manners and actually seemed to care about my concerns. It was an actual conversation which I find rare today.
Dr Perkinson is one of the best doctors I've ever been treated by. He is willing to listen and to take time to talk through all your options. He obviously cares most about helping his patients obtain optimal health.
i ve found my new doctor, very nice and believes in trying to save the paitent money.
Amazing personality, professionalism and bed-side manner. So happy I found him!
I love Dr. Perkinsin. He's very astute and personable with me every visit. I love that he does house calls after hours if you need him. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Perkinson was very respectful and well-informed. His bedside manner was great as he listened to me and explained my options. His office staff is also very welcoming which created a relaxed environment.
Dr. Perkinson takes the time to listen and understand what your concerns are. It comes from a genuine concern for his patient - I don't feel nervous or uncomfortable going to the doctor's office anymore!
He's a great doctor, very personable and very exceptional. He's a people's person and has the "old-fashioned" bed-side manner. Really enjoy going to him, he's finds the solutions before trying to push pills.
I was very impressed with Dr. Perkinson. He takes the time to listen to health concerns, provides lots of information regarding conditions and possible treatments. Excellent!
first time in the office everything sees to be good! I will have to wait and see how the treatments and how we can work as a team to see progress in my kids. I will definitely will rated him again later to see the improvements! I like all the personal pretty sweet and the dr. was very patience. thanks
Such a great experience meeting Dr. Perkinson! I genuinely felt welcomed the moment I walked in.
He is a great doctor. He did not want to treat my husband for anything he didn't need just for the money and is easy to talk to.
Dr. Parkinson was rude and disrespectful not only to me but to my caregiver that was recently hired
Nice all around visit, didn't feel rushed, took time to hear all our concerns. No NASCAR (in and out) medical check-up for me. Gets a good clear history on your family health. Followed up as promised. Not your typical "Lab Coat" Doctor, refreshing!
Really was impressed with first visit. I usually hate going to the Dr. But I enjoyed this visit and I felt like my concerns were properly addressed.
Awesomeness!!!! Plain & Simple!!! ????????
Dr. Perkinson was absolutely amazing. I found my new PCP. I highly recommend him.
Dr. P was great! Probably the best doctor visit I've ever experienced.
I have seen a number of doctors over the years. I have never experienced the amount of comfort and professionalism as I did with Dr. Perkinson. He really cares about your well being. Very highly recommended.
Dr P was great. Really easy to talk to and really open. I love that he takes a different approach at medicine leveraging social apps and technology biringing him closer to his patients.
Very explanatory and informative. He takes his time and the office was very relaxing.
Dr. Perkinson has a fantastic bedside manner, and he really takes the time to understand you as a person. His office staff was very friendly as well. Overall a great experience.
Made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Not your usual doctor now and days, tries to make a connection with his patients... really liked my experience.
Prompt and competent. We've found our new family PCP.
This was my first visit to this doctor. Very nice, very informative. Great doctor. He will now be my primary doctor for sure!
I was looking for a PCP and Dr. Perkinson is great! Very thorough and doesn't rush through your appointment. I brought in labs from another Doctor and he took the time to go through all of the results and suggest a plan going forward. I definitely recommend this practice.
He was probably the most empathetic, honest & caring doctor ive ever been to & I only got to be in his care for 15 minutes or so which was my fault bc I was late & was very fortunate & grateful that he even agreed to see me at all.
Dr. P is very personable and one on one. He is concerned for the patient; money or time does not motivate his care or the appointment.
This guy is AWESOME. So glad I followed others' advice and went to seen him. My whole family goes there now.
Very personal and one on one.
Straight-shooter! Great interpersonal skills - excellent staff!
Great visit as usual. He truly put my mind at ease. Always a pleasure!
Dr. Perkinson was extremely aproachable and helpful. I went in for a cardiology assessment and he spent a lot of time with me to document my family history and current symptoms. His friendly style and attention to patient needs amazed me. He even does HOUSE CALLS! I'm so happy to have found a primary care physician whose goal is to get me as healthy as I can be.
I didn't have to wait when I got there. I was called back immediately. He was very thorough about my entire medical history so that he could really identify the root of the problem. He also provided me with information regarding my medical condition and resources to help me stay informed. He was very caring and made me feel like he was genuinely concerned about my condition.
This is the BEST MD I've been blessed to see in a very long time! EXCELLENT bedside manner. Dr. Perkinson took his time with my daughter and I. He's among the best of the best!
I was greeted promptly, seen immediately and all my concerns and questions addressed. As a healthcare professional I recognize quality care when I see it. There are few I'd trust with my health, Dr. Perkinson is one of few.
Dr. Perkinson is the BEST! Very friendly, thorough, caring, and compassionate!
Dr. Perkinson gets to know you personally. He makes sure to understand the entire picture of a health issue before prescribing a pharmaceutical. As an MD with his personalized approach, friendly bedside manner, and extensive interdisciplinary medical knowledge he is an excellent general practitioner that I would recommend to anyone who is tired of the traditional, stiff approach to general care. 5 stars!!
Very personable, Dr. Perkinson pays close attention to detail, listens intently, and works toward getting to the core of the problem. At the same time, he handles his time with his patients in a very relaxed manner, making the patient feel comfortable. He's my new doctor, glad I found him.
Dr Perkinson is great! Super accommodating and great bedside manner. Really takes the time to get to know his patients and understand their concerns.
Hands down the best doctor I've ever encountered. So very happy I've finally found a primary care doctor for my family. Highly recommend him. I was very cautious about seeing a new doctor with all my medical issues. He took the time to go over everything and draw out a chart. He's a great listener and you can tell he generally cares for his patients. Definitely won't go anywhere else. He's not like the other ordinary doctors. He's also a Christian and believes in the power of prayer as well. Thank you Dr Perkinson for everything.
He was very thorough, addressed all of our questions and concerns and was extremely pleasant. We will definetly be back to see him again
Awesome Dr! Very personable! Very little to no wait time! Dr. has a great sense of humor and great bedside manner! Will keep him as my doctor and move my entire family to him!
I will recommend Dr. P in the future.
Dr. Perkinson was very friendly and answered all my questions. The office staff was courteous and helpful.
I think I found the perfect dr. For me and my family
Top 5 if not the best doctor experience I have ever had. He is awesome!
Very professional dr made the whole family feel welcome from the get go. Way to go Dr. P.
It was great. He was very knowledgeable . I would recommend him.
Dr was wonderful, very attentive and listened to all my concerns.
I couldn't express how wonderful, and hospitable Joseph is. We are immediately changing our primary doctor to enroll with Joseph. He took time to draw out and describe the issue our 1 year old is dealing with. On a personable level, without question a man who puts patients first no matter their situation. Truly genuine. I recommend anyone to visit him.
Very kind and my daughter had fun while there.
If I could give him 100 stars I would! It's so hard finding a good doctor that listens and cares about you! After 3 years of searching I've found my doctor!! Highly recommend!
Very knowledgeable and caring doctor. We are so pleased to find him.
Great checked everything I asked for plus some. Will to see you at all hours to save you an er trip!
This guy rocks! From the peaceful lobby, no wait time, online booking, to the way he talks to you. Found my doc! ????
Very nice caring traditional Dr. Very personable and clear, got a lot of weird meds at redi clinic, and this Dr helped me pinpoint a better gameplan for my symptoms and got better shortly after. He also answered a lot of other questions! Recommend for sure!
Dr Perkinson is probably the best doctor that we have ever had. He cares about you and takes time and listens. He has renewed my faith in doctors
He is a fantastic doctor. Great bedside manners. He communicates with all of my other doctors. He is very thorough and is easy to talk to. He also doesn't rush through the appointment like he is running late for a game of golf! He is by far my most favorite doctor. I genuinely trust this guy!
Dr. Perkinson has the people skills and charisma which we rarely see now a days - he took his time to build rapport with me and explained everything transparently. I feel like he's a genuine doctor who truly cares and sees us as family rather than solely as patients.
Omg! Absolutely awesome doctor! Love him!
Dr. Perkinson was amazing. He listened to all my problems and ailments. This was my first visit ever to a family physician and I've already recommended him to friends and co-workers. His bedside manner is excellent. I highly recommend his practice.
he is an amazing doctor. we are so pleased with him..anyone who wants a doctor that still has old values, like home visits and hands on care go to him.
He was great. Loved the fast appointment but in detail of the issues. Also, I love that he still does blood work in his office. Bringing it back to the way medicine should be. And not having to run all over the place for labs. I am excited to call him my family doctor. Thanks Dr. :)
I though Dr. Perkinson was very personable and genuinely cared about his patients.
He listened, was attentive, and gave a concise diagnosis. Was friendly and showed genuine interest in helping me. Will definitely go back.
Very personable and passionate about the hands on care of people!
Dr. Perkinson was utterly amazing. I had no wait time at all. He came in right away and listened to everything I had to say..didn't rush, didn't seem like he didn't have time for me. He is very personable and likeable. I am kind of upset with myself I hadn't scheduled anything with him sooner. AWESOME !!!
Highly recommend Dr. P!
Very good - personable, took a lot of time to review history and understand the patient and family situation.
I'm a new patient, I loved Dr. Perkinson he's awesome. I highly recommend him, I also love the decor & the vibe inside the office very chill & comfy
My first day of meeting him, left a very good impression. Quiet office,almost no wait time , I was surprised that Dr. Perkinson checked my Vital signs himself, that speaks a lot, about the kind of doctor that he is . I think I picked the right MD :)
I felt very welcomed and was highly impressed. Great doctor!
Very thorough, professional, knowledgeable, casual yet genuinely caring and concerned, explains things very well, spent a lot of time with me, he made me feel comfortable right away and does house calls!! Just terrific. This one is a keeper!
