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 comfortable trying 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. He also took the time to explain in detail what he thought of my condition and why he was prescribing a certain treatment. I came out of my appointment satisfied with the knowledge provided and reassured about the course of action.

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 see the doctor for about 3 minutes. I really dislike when offices operate this way and may not return to this office because of it.

I couldn't get out of there quick enough for him! He was pretty pompous, and was not exactly interested in what I came in for. Will not be going back.

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.

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 complained to 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!

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.
