Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth L Perkins has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This was my second visit - which was very much like the first. Excellent. Where have doctors like this been. She listened carefully - like I was her only patient for the day. She focused on obtaining an accurate diagnosis. Professionalism all the way

Dr. Perkins is a wonderful doctor. She is very knowledgable and truly has her patients best interest at heart. She has helped me so much with my lupus and I'm so very happy that I found her. I have recommended her to a lot of people and they are all just as satisfied. Heather, her nurse, is also very helpful and is prompt about calling you and handling your needs.

Satisfied Patient

I have been seeing Dr. Perkins for a few years now. I am extremely pleased with her knowledge, maintenance care and her overall practice. Dr. Perkins always seems to give me her undivided attention during my appointment. She has proved to be more caring and compassionate than most physicians I have seen in my 50+ years. A true asset to her practice....her nurse, Heather. She is sweet, kind and always comes across as knowing exactly who I am even though I see her every 3 months. I take full ownership of my health and if the practice has not called me with my lab results in what I consider a timely manner, I ask the receptionist to fax them to me. I am extremely happy with Dr. Perkins and have recommended her to many others who have come away please too.

Waited three months for abnormal labs that needed medical attention. Called four times and no one called back. Would not see me when I was sick.
