He was extremely pleasant and helpful. He immediately started out with what the diagnosis wasn't to help calm any fears Ihad. He gave me some background context on some other common conditions (For people like me that love to google/webMD). Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Staff at the front desk was also efficient and professional. My first time there and I would definitely recommend Dr. Perkins.

Been there before, they have no records, sneezing on patients. I think he's a good guy but if I have askin problem, will use cream/lotions.

I did not enjoy my experience at Dr. Perkins' office. The office itself is very antiquated. It is dark and unwelcoming and still uses paper files. The staff was decently friendly. However, I was seen 30 minutes after my appointment time(even though I arrived 30 minutes early), and there was no apology from anyone about the wait. Dr. Perkins himself had a bedside manner that may work for some, but to me he came off as condescending and snippy, as he would cut me off to answer before I was finished speaking.

I was able to see Dr. Perkins right when I arrived, which was actually earlier than scheduled. Dr. Perkins was super friendly and knew exactly what was wrong. He thoroughly explained the medicine and cream I need and how to apply. I would recommend him to anyone!!

I was impressed by how short my wait time was. I was in and out extremely quickly. However, his bedside manner was equally rushed. By the way he was treating me, it felt like I was being charged by the minute.Not the doctor for you if you want a patient doctor.

Great appointment for a skin screening - Todd saw me right away and provided good education about what moles or skin marks to keep an eye on, and explained well what risk I am at for developing issues in the future.I will definitely be going back for anything that comes up!

I am sure he is a very good dermatologist, however I did not feel comfortable to continue with his treatment, for so many reasons including his very arrogant attitude. I had several skin issues and I prefer to have someone whom I can trust and speak to honestly.

I will see how it works whatever was prescribed/recommended. I'll get back, just remind me and I will tell you The only thing the doctor didn't send this prescription to my CVS drug store so I didn't have a chance tocheck availability of this medicine online -- I had to show up in person at the CVS. But luckily this drug was available at this location.

Dr. Perkins is great! He is extremely knowledgeable and straightforward and was also willing to answer some of my sillier questions about my treatment. My appointment was very quick which was another plus. A final bonus--medical assistant Rachel is EXCELLENT at drawing blood! I hardly felt a thing.

The physician evaluated me in under 10 minutes. He's knowledgeable but speaks really quickly. The entire appointment felt very rushed as if they were constantly just churning patients. Additionally, the Medical Assistant (MA) pricked myarm twice and still couldn't take my blood. She didn't put on gloves until she was ready to put the needle in my arm; meaning she opened the band aid, swabbed my arm with alcohol and organized the blood kit without using gloves. I told her I was NPO that morning and maybe if I drank a cup of water, it would be easier to take my blood. Instead of offering me some water and trying again (the third time) she told me to go to an outside lab service and take my blood. As a patient, I felt very rushed and didn't have a positive experience.

The front office staff were nice, and Dr. Perkins was great. I went in for a general skin check since I'm very pale and have freckles/moles and wanted to make sure everything was ok since I'm in my 30s. The onlynegative thing I have to say is the nurse who walked me back made me feel like I was sort of crazy for coming in for a general consultation. She was rude and dismissive of my concern in a way that made me feel embarrassed for trying to see the doctor. I thought about leaving and saying nevermind right there. But Dr. Perkins came in quickly after she left and put me at ease, did a thorough check, and I didn't feel silly for getting checked out.

As someone in their mid-thirties who has fair skin, freckles, and sunburns easily, I went to see Dr. Perkins for an initial screening. He was pleasant, answered my questions, gave me some information on what to look out for in termsof changes to any moles or freckles. He was thorough, and the office ran smoothly. I arrived early, was taken around my appointment time, and was out of the office and on my way back to work in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Perkins and his practice!

To start, my appointment time was at 9AM and I wasn't seen until 9:50. I had already filled out all paperwork beforehand so the delay certainly wasn't because of that. During my appointment, Dr. Perkins was nice but when he askedquestions, he would cut me off in the middle of my answers every. time. It was frustrating and felt very condescending. I scheduled a follow up appointment, but I'm not sure I'll return to this practice.

Dr. Perkins is quite impatient and condescending when asked questions to a degree that's fairly unprofessional. He was also quick to blame me when his recommendedations didn't work well with my skin, even though I carefully followed his instructions.I've stopped going to Dr. Perkins and have gotten much better results with a dermatologist who takes a beat to listen and create a regimen that works well for me.
