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 returning and would recommend others to do some searching prior to settling on this dermatologist.

I recently moved to the area, and didn't have a dermatologist. I found Dr. Perkins on Zocdoc, and although I was skeptical with using an app to find a doctor, the experience was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I would highly recommend this office.

He honestly is the first Dermatoligist I've been to where I felt confident that what he prescribed is going to help my skin. He was very knowledgeable and knew what he was talking about.

Dr Perkins was great - friendly, candid, and to the point. I was late to my appointment and they accommodated. There were some issues with the staff integrating zocdoc appts to their office appts, so I recommend calling to confirm once you make your appointment.

He cuts you off, acts pretty pompous, doesn't feel like he really values your opinion. I've dealt with docots whose beside manner was 100x better. He is a good doctor, just takes some getting used to.

Office was busy but organized, I was early but was seen and left with prescriptions in hand 35 minutes after my appointment time. Dr. Perkins was intelligent and took the time to explain his diagnosis and recommendations. I wouldn't say he is overly doting or warm and fuzy but I didn't feel rushed either and was able to ask questions and address multiple issues in one appointment. Would recommend to anyone looking for a professional doctor with lots of availability.

Dr. Perkins was incredibly brief and appeared to be more concerned with convincing me of his medical expertise rather than hearing me out and taking the time to answer all questions within an acceptable amount of time. This was easily the shortest encounter I have ever experienced for a first time consultation - he couldn't get out of the room quick enough apparently.

Dr. Perkins was great. He was informative and listened to my questions. The wait staff was great as well. The only downside was I was about 30 minutes late, however that isn't surprising since he's in downtown DC.

Referred by a friend who had a bad experience with another dermatologist office and she raved about Dr Perkins - she was right. He has a very pleasant demeanor, gave me a quick diagnosis and game plan. I was in and out of the office fast enough to keep my parking under 1 hr ;)

I read some poor Yelp reviews from recently, so was skeptical heading in. Besides the 40 min wait it was one of the best medical office visits I've had in a while. Everyone from the receptionists to PAs to Dr. Perkins himself were friendly, professional and attentive. I was in for a cyst which I would consider a pretty straight-forward issue. Dr. Perkins gave a comprehensive explanation of what the body is doing, all of my options to deal with it (without pressuring me to to have it removed) and answered all of my questions at length. What really impressed me is that he offered up information for some questions I should have asked but didn't, such as how many of these procedures he does in a year. Since moving to DC I've had trouble finding a dermatologist who I trust and whose office isn't a headache to deal with and after today I think I have found them!

GREAT EXPERIENCE!! Can't say enough good things. I went to another dermatologist a couple months ago to check about a mole removal and was very disappointed with the poor communication and time spent with me. They looked for about a minute and brushed me out quickly, barely answering my questions and only when I pressed. Dr. Perkins examined me, and gave me plenty of clear information regarding treatment. He outlined two different removal options, what the prices were, and how my skin would heal in each case. I was shocked that he was able to remove it in the same appointment, expecting I would need to take more time off to come back weeks later for another one. I am thrilled with how thorough, kind, informative and painless the whole appointment was. He really seemed to care to help make sure I was pleased with the treatment and helped me decide on which option was best for my skin to minimize scarring. I felt like I was in great hands, would go back for any other dermatological issues and have already recommended him to a friend!

I'm really disappointed with Dr. Perkins and the visit we had. He was impersonal, rushed and to be frank extremely rude. He came across very judgmental and patronizing in his mannerisms and tone of voice. When I tried to ask a question he was very abrupt with answering and basically said there was nothing I could do. At the end of the visit I had one last question (and it was a quick one!) and he literally said "we don't have time for questions if you need to ask anymore you can set up another appointment". The only positive about this experience was the reception staff was nice. I've literally never had a worse experience with a medical professional in my entire life.

Great experience. For once a doctor's office had my ZocDoc information in hand and just needed a signature. I was seen exactly on time and the office was very clean and inviting. Dr. Perkin's was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He addressed any concerns and explained anything I had questions about.

Dr. Perkins had a very sarcastic tone and was very short with me. He looked at my skin for literally 30 seconds before telling me what my skin problem was and then wrote me a prescription. He also then suggested I do a chemical peel on my face with the aesthetician who works in the same office. He didn't spend enough time with me and seemed to be in a rush to get me out. I saw him for a total of 5-10 minutes.

Things I liked: Dr. Perkins was very forthright and matter-of-fact, never softening what he had to say or beating around the bush. I can appreciate that. Things I didn't like: He had a peculiarly cocky demeanor and I definitely felt a bit rushed.

Appreciated that Dr. Perkins was quick, reassuring and professional. Could have done with a quicker wait time, but that's to be expected--it was right at half an hour. The important thing is I walked out of there feeling much more relieved than when I walked in.
