The office was busy, but worked very efficiently and I was seen soon after arriving. I came in for a minor concern, but Dr. Perkins took the time to examine and explain everything to me. Great doctor, and great bedside manner.

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.

Dr. Perkins is outstanding. However, the front desk support staff seem a bit disorganized. Further, I noticed the exam room was a bit dirty. Attend ti these small areas and the practice would be excellent

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.

The staff at the receptionist desk were very nice and friendly. Dr. Perkins was a bit rude and not friendly. He comes off very arrogant and likes to cut you off. That was a turnoff and I didn't really feel comfortabletrying to explain why I was there. I tolerated the visit but wanted to leave after five minutes with him. The only good thing that came out of the visit was that he did tell me I was using a cream that I shouldn't be using on my face and recommended the correct cream. I would go back to MetroDerm, but it would be with a different doctor.

Dr. Perkins was obviously very knowledgeable but I found him to be personable as well.

Dr. Perkins was great and very knowledgeable. However, when I arrived at 8:55am for a 9:00am appointment, about 4 other people came in at the same time, saying they had 9:00am appointments. I then waited for over 30 minutes to seethe doctor for about 3 minutes. I really dislike when offices operate this way and may not return to this office because of it.

Dr. Perkins was very nice and explained everything as simply as possible to me. I was in the room with him for about 15-20 mins. Came in for one thing and left with a prescription for something I never even complainedto him about--which, at first, made me a bit uneasy because he seemed eager to just throw medicine at a problem and I was especially hesitant because it was my first time meeting him. But after a few weeks on the medicine, I realized that he was completely correct about his diagnosis and it was a God send!

He was somewhat dismissive and noticeable trying to see as many patients as he could in a small amount of time so I don't believe anyone really received his full attention. Seems like a nice man but I won't be returningand would recommend others to do some searching prior to settling on this dermatologist.
