Dr. Joseph Perkinson, MD

Family Physician, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

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.

I thought Dr. Perkinson’s approach was refreshing in a world where most doctors do not take the time to really get to know you. I will be going back for my annual check ups. I feel very happy to have founda primary care physician I feel I have in my corner.

I was a little confuse with all, first my appointment was changed from the initisl timing I requested, but I understood, despite I gave i required information through Zodoc. But the worst part is that the communication was awful, i paidmy consultation and asked for specific exams, they did not tell me nothing about a timing i could expect the results or how the bill would be sent to me, generally for the exams I asked depend on the results you might need follow-up but they did not seem to care because I called back to get more information and the desl lady that answered was very rude to me and didnt seem to want to answer any of my questions. I did not deal with the lab after all, and I had some urgency on the exams, from the reviews i thought they would care more for the patients needs and not only treat them like a money wallet. I was very disappointed.

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!

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. Heseems to truly be interested in finding answers and acting, or not acting , as appropriate for that patient’s situation . Truly a wonderful experience.

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. Itwas 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!
