Doctor Perkins is people oriented; she has the patient’s best interest in mind. She is caring, compassionate and spends allot of time with her patients. I have visited her on many occasions and she has always resolved my issues with pain. I have seen many acupuncturists in St. Petersburg and she is by far the best I have seen.
