Dr Perkins is the most knowledgeable and personable oncologist that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting (and I've met a few). His nursing staff is first class, just like him. Though his personality is a little dry his compassion shines through and I would send any one of my friends or family members to him without hesitation. I find his honest and straight forward approach to be refreshing. He does not sugar coat things but he shows genuine concern which is rare with doctors these days.
highly recommend Dr. Steve Perkins as my Oncologist. I was a patient of his early 2010. He is very easy to talk with and discuss your personal illness. Dr Perkins has a good sense of humor and I am very pleased that his lab is located within the office and blood work can be drawn and results given before entering your appointment with Dr. Perkins. This way you only have to go to one Doctors office. He has several offices and the RN staff was also very professional. I certainly give him 5 Stars
went to this dr. For cancer. Not only is he cold with a rude bedside manner. He thinks any emotional issues makes a person "crazy" has no compassion. His office manager told me they were dumping me read abandoning me because I took up too much time. Huh? Between my fin ace and I we made maybe five calls to the office after not hearing from them on a needed biopsy. They told me we called too much then dumped me. But it was really because I am a medicaid patient whom they resented. They lied and said Molina (Medicaid) would not pay for my biopsy but I checked and it was authorized. Bottom line, he didn't want a disabled Medicaid patient...so in the middle of treatment I am now without medical care which will result in my death. They told me to " go to parkland" when I asked them what I should do. I have never been treated so cruelly...at a time when I needed just a tiny bit if kindness. Go to this man only off you have Cadillac insurance otherwise prepare to be treated worse than a dog, talked to like you're and idiot, and called crazy if you have depression. Still no healthcare as my cancer progresses because no docs in this area take Molina. Prayer is all I have. By the way, I have aggressive lymphoma.
