Dr. Perkinson is awesome!
Patient | May 15, 2017

Great provider!
Patient | April 24, 2017

I have recommended Dr Perkinson and Vanderbuilt Bone and Joint to many many people. Dr Perkinson was recommended to me by many many people. I am completely satisfied with the whole experience.
Patient | April 21, 2017

He made me feel anxious to have my surgery.
Patient | April 21, 2017

The doctor VERY kind, and even humorous, but I needed information most of all. Being in shock and pain left me not knowing what to ask or do. I think your entire team forgot that people coming in with broken bones might not be in the best mindset nor know what to ask or how to be their own advocate.
Patient | April 19, 2017

Best care that could be provided!
Patient | April 4, 2017

Dr. Perkinson is always kind & attentive.
Patient | January 20, 2017

Dr Perkinson saved my wife life last year finding an infection in her leg on our first visit. We had been going to TOA in Clarksville and they could not or would not help us so we made an appointment with Dr Perkinson an he found the problem right away. The infection turned out to be MERSA. That is why i chose to see Dr Perkson for a knee replacement.
Patient | January 9, 2017

excellent!!!!!
Patient | January 2, 2017

I have seen Dr Perkinson for 3 years. He has been great. From researching the best way to take the metal out of my leg in August to my knee problem now. He is always compassionate and very nice. You are lucky to have him as one of your doctors.

The doctor seemed to be in a hurry. He told me the problem with my shoulder but did not stay to answer question about knee (he was not like Dr. Ferrell).
Patient | December 21, 2016

excellent doctor/surgeon & I have recommended him to others
Patient | August 15, 2016

Dr. Brian Perkinson is an amazing surgeon; compassionate listener and excellent communicator. I am recommending him to everyone I know that may need a joint replacement. If I should need any other surgery that he performs, I will not consider using anyone else. In my opinion, he is the best surgeon available. Vanderbilt is blessed to have Dr. Perkinson on staff!

Patient | July 20, 2016

very pleased with care from Dr. Perkinson with my recent hip anterior replacement.
Patient | July 5, 2016

Excellent care. Very caring very gentle for my painful leg great DOCTOR highly recommend him.
Patient | July 2, 2016

I was categorized as elderly and treated as such. Even though I expressed concern that this might be a tendon issue, my suggestion was ignored. I told him that I am active and that I attend a barre class 5 days a week. He told me to stop even though he did not know what barre class really is. He suggested water aerobics and walking. He told me the x-ray showed arthritis and immediately gave me a cortisone shot which made my condition far worse. I had worked out the morning of my appointment and the day after, I struggled to even walk. First time I have been physically worse after a doctor visit.
