The office did well dealing with a zocdoc paperwork snafu (their system wasn't cooperating) and still took me back in time. I feel like I was well treated, learned something and was able to be back in my car within an hour. Overall, I'm very happy that I chose Dr. Perkins.

I did have to wait a bit, twice. But it was worth it. Very professional, and made sure to explain everything in a way that would make sense to me - not just a check the box, and not talking to me like an idiot. I got what I needed, but I felt confident in my decision to do so.

Could not be more pleased with Dr. Perkins. I had an early morning appointment and was seen almost immediately. He was thorough with questions and I was out of there with a prescription in hand within 20 minutes.

Very knowledgeable but he was too sarcastic and it came off harsh. Plus I heard the staff discussing other patients so that was violation of OSHA's rules.

Dr. Perkins was professional and friendly and started the appointment promptly. My only quibble was that he seemed a little rushed. Unlike other doctors,he did not take a moment to get to know me as a first-time patient. He did not chat before proceeding with the appointment.

Dr. Perkins is great; I was seen before my actual appointment time and he did a really thorough skin exam. I was also pleased that he could do a quick removal of a skin tag/mole without my having to come back again (although everyone was so nice I would not have minded a return visit). Thank you!

Doctor is professional and knowledgeable. Give me some good advice for my skin care. One of the front desk ladies was kind of rude but other ladies were nice enough. I was there before some of other patients but they were seen before me. I don't know what the deal was.

Dr. Perkins was wonderful and helped assess my needs. He had great bedside manner and made me very comfortable, especially since this was my first time at a Dermatologist. He and his staff were busy when I arrived, but to me that says he is needed and they handled things well even while rushing. He explained all things I needed to know and his staff did the same with my many questions. I would highly recommend them.

Dr. Perkins' office is busy--expect to wait a while only to be seen for a few minutes. The exam itself was cursory and not thorough (I had to point out a questionable mole that the doctor missed). That said, Dr. Perkins was straightforward, didn't waste any time, and gave sound advice. His front desk staff, however, are rude and disorganized. They submitted my claim to the incorrect insurance, which I had to discover and fix (they scanned my new insurance card when I came to my appointment, so I'm not sure how this is possible). While no one pushed me to undergo any cosmetic treatments, the doctor's office is filled with advertisements for various cosmetic procedures, which made me feel pressured and uncomfortable. I will likely not be returning to this office.

The only pro about this office is that I was seen on time and the staff was friendly. I went to Dr. Perkins for concerns about constant itching, eczema and a new r. We discussed my eczema and I found him to be dismissive and condescending. He barely took a look at me and rudely dismissed my question about a possible underlying food allergy that may be culprit. He blamed my itching on anxiety and suggested that I see a therapist. He never even address my acne which is deep under the skin. He told me "we'll get to that another time." I am in his office looking for answers and all he would give me was prescriptions to control the itching and "come back in a few months." I left his office fighting back tears. I'm never going back to him.

First office visit, first dermatology visit. Office was packed when I arrived for my appointment, and never slowed down. A very busy practice, but that seems to be a good sign. Dr. Perkins only spent a few minutes with me, and the examination was immediate once he walked in and gave a straightforward diagnosis and two prescriptions--which seem to have had positive effect. His bedside manner isn't for those who need a lot of coddling and small talk, though if the whole practice is that busy I understand. I would describe his manner more like that of "House" the television series doctor, less grumpy, but clinical in the utmost--and really, isn't that ideally what a doctor should be? If you make an appt via ZocDoc, be sure to tell the front desk immediately to avoid new patient paperwork.

I was 30 minutes late to my appointment, but they still fit me in. Very grateful for that. I saw Dr. Perkins for my acne problem. He holds nothing back-- very direct, but very friendly, and more interested in actually curing your acne than simply treating it. After having gone to a half dozen dermatologists in my youth who just wanted to give me skin creams, this came as a huge relief.
