Arrogant

Dr Perkins thinks he knows it all..i moved here from California and was in the process of getting albration surgery I moved before the surgery could be done. Dr. Perkins was bad mouthing the previous hospital and previous neurologist. He was making assumption about my condition. Even though they have done extensive testing and he just met me and has never done testing. He was saying the feeling I feel during my seizure were wrong. At the end of are visit we wanted a card for marijuana due to the fact I have seizures everynight and they are uncontrollable and in california I would get marijuana infused drinks...i know it's illegal in texas but if you have uncontrollable seizure with a prescription it's legal...he basically said no he would not recommend that because he said i would use it not for medical purposes... i only drink the marijuana to sleep because I have seizures every night all night and get only 3 hours of sleep..he was not opened to the idea...he was even corrected me when I told him about my diagnoses...i would NOT recommend him at all...

Best Ever

Dr. Perkins has been invaluable to us. My son has refractory epilepsy and Dr. Perkins has been there with us every step of the way, through two EMU stays and a craniotomy. If you want the best make an appointment with him.

Rocky Road

Dr. Perkins was mostly rude and unhelpful to our child during his hospitilizations. In fact, we feel his recommendations were unhelpful and harmful to our child's health. He did run some tests that we requested that were helpful. Even when other physician's made recommendations, he argued with them and was inaccurate in his assessments. Unfortunately, in our experience, we don't recommend him.
