Incompetent Staff, 8/20/2012

Dr. Perkins staff doesn't receive anything my pharmacy faxes to them...they don't return phone calls. My pharmacist has sent numerous faxes that go unanswered. When I spoke to the office, the lady... said "you can't stay awake without this medication?" I said "that is correct". She said "you sound awake to me." The biggest headache and a huge stressor. The office staff is substandard and there is no way around them unless I take the next available appt to see Dr. Perkins which is in 3 months. Unbeleivable. I know Dr. Perkins would not want me off this medication, but the paperwork will not reach him. Find somewhere else to go...this is constant.

I have been under Dr. Perkins care for over 10 years now and I would never see anyone else. He treats me as if I were his daughter, I couldn't ask for a more compassionate, knowledgeable person to be... in charge of my care. I have been Free 10 years because of Dr. Perkins and I will never be able to thank him enough.

The most arrogant incompassionate man EVER!

Dr. Perkins treated a hospitalized member of my family with a neurological problem not too long ago. His lack of compassion for my family member was unacceptable. Once diagnosed, instead of coming up with viable treatment options (for which there were several) for my family member, his plan was to do absolutely nothing! He was hostile and arrogant with our family on a daily basis as he made rounds. He was unwilling to answer questions about our loved one's health and future prognosis without snide sarcastic responses. His unprofessionalism was appalling and honestly, had me in tears. For someone who claims to read his Bible and incorporate his faith into his medical practice, he did not exhibit an ounce of true compassion or Christian love. Ultimately, I had to go to hospital administration, report his behavior and get my loved one transferred out from under his care in order to get the care that was needed. Thank goodness most of the other doctors at Raleigh Neurology are not only knowledgeable, but kind, compassionate and caring. I will refuse any further interactions with Dr. Perkins in the future and suggest that he be avoided.
