Dr. Perkins explained my symptoms and why I might be still dealing with them along with the tests he will order. I finally feel, after 6 months, someone is listening to me and can help me.

Suggest that doctor use easy to understand layman's language when discussing my health condition. The tendency is to use medical terms that I do not understand.

Dr. Perkins is a rare breed….he never rushes, he listens and is incredibly supportive. I am so grateful to have found a doctor who is not only incredibly knowledgeable but talks to you as if you truly matter as a person not just another number! Thank you Dr. Perkins from the bottom of my heart.

Dr Perkins helped me immensely. I had had a persistent cough for 3 years for which my former pulmonologist couldn’t do anything. Dr Perkins kept doing tests until he figured it out. I’m so grateful to him
