About Erik Perkins, MD

Neurologic disorders present special challenges to patients because they affect so many aspects of what define us a person: walking, talking, remembering and sleeping. These disorders can also occur suddenly like stroke or recurrently without warning like migraine and seizure. They require that we spend more time listening to, observing and communicating with patients and their families; this is the level of care my staff and I strive to provide. I spend most of my free time with my family. Since I have two young children, this involves a lot of running, playing and trips to Balboa Park, Birch Aquarium, San Diego Botanical Garden, Sea World, Poway Train Museum and Santee Lakes. I have also invested countless hours since I was pre-school age watching and actively supporting the Chargers and Padres (there's always next year).

Dr. Perkins was very thorough and kind in explaining the issues and next steps. It is unfortunate that Sharp Healthcare's scheduling timeline does not ever line up with the amount of time the excellent physicians need to do a thorough patient visit. I am always glad that I can read about these physicians before seeing them so I know to expect a delay from the good ones who really listen and take their time to get to the bottom of a diagnosis or issue.
