Self-verified patient of Dr. Susannah C Perkins - Posted on March 24th, 2014
Best doctor I have ever had. I am still having issues finding a doctor that can fill her shoes. She actually listened to me on my health issues and actually helped me with them instead of pushing them off, which is what I had before and after her. I wish she hadn't moved. I am seriously considering finding away to travel back and forth just so I can have her as my doctor again if I can't find a doctor who will listen to me soon.
