Dr. Karen Y. Perkins's Ratings
I ADORE Dr. Karen Perkins. My husband and I switched to her practice when I was 26 weeks pregnant with our first child and we hit the ground running. She is knowledgeable on many levels, her bedside manner is excellent and we never once felt rushed through an appointment. She answered all of our questions with care and thorough answers. I find her staff to be really helpful and haven't had any issues with them, but maybe that's just me.
In all honesty, the wait time is horrible. I used to go to a practice in Columbia and they would get me in and out in record time. In fact, I told my husband I would go back to my old gyno because I didn't want to have to wait for routine appts like we do with Dr. Perkins. HOWEVER, we just found out we are pregnant again and I am without a doubt going back to her. I will gladly wait all afternoon for the service that she provides. I feel extremely comfortable in her hands and if you don't mind waiting for good service than I definitely recommend Dr. Perkins.
Dr. Perkins overbooks her appointments which results in long wait times and minimal time with patients. Very tight office. Her front desk staff is the most unprofessional staff I have ever seen. Also the office VM has been full more than once and you can forget a follow up email or call regarding your appointment. I would NEVER recommend this practice. I transfered to another doctor who is extremely attentive and front desk staff is top notch. If you want good care and professionalism don't go here.
I love love LOVE Dr. Perkins, she is the best doctor I have ever had. However, her staff is terrible. They never pass along phone messages, they are rude and cold, and they frequently fail to tell you important information about your upcoming appointments, or are very vague about the info. It often feels like they are just trying to get rid of you. I decided to try to find another gyn. because of this problem, but when I went to see her she told me she goes to Dr. Perkins! I decided to put up with the long waits and bad staff in order to stay with this AMAZING, extremely thorough, kind and knowledgable doctor that even the doctors see!!
I love Dr. Perkins, she is very helpful and explains everything. I ask a lot of questions and she answers them all. She performed surgery on me in September and I am having another one done in a few weeks. I was told the initial procedure may not change things but i wanted it anyway with hopes it would. She is great, HOWEVER her staff is horrible, mainly the young lady at the front desk. She never gives my messages or phone calls and i had the worse time getting forms filled out. If Dr. Perkins wasn't so thorough I would leave because of the staff.
The staff were unaccomodating. I had a terrible time obtaining my medical records and was ignored when I began to push for them. I just want to move on and forget about this group. I liked the doctor but felt gouged when I realized she did bloodwork on me that my primary had done on my annual physical. I was concerned that my insurance co wouldn't pay for it. It was not made clear to me how extensive it would be. Maybe Dr. Perkins has an interest in the lab. I felt gouged.
