Throughout my life, I have been to countless "specialists" for cystic acne and then extreme scarring. He [Dr. Perkins] is the very best dermatologist I have been to and understands his craft. I had tried multiple different treatments for scarring - including different types of laser including fractional and CO2. His suggestion of excision (cutting underneath the scar) combined with microneedling is the only thing that has worked so far to improve scarring and I've found very few dermatologists perform the procedure for some reason...
Visiting Dr. Stolar was one of the most pleasant and informative times I have ever experienced at a medical office. My visit was pleasant despite the bad news about basal cell removal on my chest. The in-patient operation went extremely smoothly and is practically invisible now that it has healed. I am returning to Dr. Stolar every six months for follow-up appointments and have an innate sense of calm knowing my skin health is being competently managed. Thank you Dr. Stolar!!!
He is very knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns. In fact, when I asked about using certain skincare products, he didn't use the opportunity to sell me on high end prescriptions. Instead, he told me what I honestly needed and how I should be treating my skin. He was also prompt in removing a mole that was troublesome, and explained everything to me thoroughly before doing anything. I'm glad I have found a regular dermatologist!
I have really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Stolar, Rachel and the front desk staff. I've found everyone to be pleasant and very helpful. I recently had an outpatient procedure at the office - Dr. Stolar made me feel at ease, and when I had a question about discomfort post-operation, Rachel immediately got on the phone with me and told me there was no concern. I will continue to see Dr. Stolar for any dermatological needs. He's a true professional and absolutely incredible at what he does. And for those who feel that they were rushed, I had a full body scan done last year and it was quick....but I thought that was a good sign because Dr. Stolar would surely have focused on any rashes/moles that were of concern. Instead I was told to wear sunscreen and come back in two years for another check-up, which I plan to do.
As a first-time patient, I was very impressed with Dr. Perkins, as well as his staff. I was able to complete my paperwork ahead of time by downloading the new patient forms from the website, and I was seen by the doctor within 5 minutes of my scheduled appointment time. No waiting! Dr. Perkins has a relaxed, friendly manner that put me at ease. He was very knowledgeable, decisive, and patient in answering all my questions. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent dermatologist.
Dr. Stolar has been my dermatologist for a number of years and I continue to see him, because I trust him and he is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I appreciate that he takes my concerns seriously and answers my questions thoroughly. I also appreciate that the office is very convenient (accessible by metro on either the red, blue, orange, and silver lines), the staff at the front desk are professional and efficient, and I am seen for my appointment in a timely manner. I definitely recommend Dr. Stolar (and have actually recommended him to a number of friends who have become patients of his)!

It takes A LOT for me to not have one tiny little "thing" that makes me think "well, maybe it was just 4 stars instead of 5", but my experience with Dr. Perkins and everyone at his office this morning was definitely 5-star worthy!
I needed to see a dermatologist for a couple of quick but important things, and looked on ZocDoc (where I had great luck once before) and found Dr. Perkins. After confirming my insurance was accepted, I was able to book an appointment quickly for first thing in the morning (ZocDoc, folks... you can make appointments online at 3am if you have nothing else to do).
The ladies in the reception area were nice, I was seen 10 minutes before my appointment (can all of you say that about your last trip to a doctor's office?) and Dr. Perkins was nice, listened to my issues (yes, some of which brought on by my lifetime of suntanning) and took a mole out for me right away (instead of the "oh, come back for another visit and we will do it then"). While waiting for the injection of whatever numbs the skin to kick in, we had a nice chat about New England, vacations, etc.
Checkout was quick, and I am thinking about IPL for the sunspots that my love of tanning has left behind on my face.
Dr Stolar is an excellent dermatologist; he has always been spot on in his diagnosis and treatment of my conditions. Hanna Mitchell who specializes in facials and massage is also highly skilled and an important asset to the team. I recommend them both without hesitation.
I have been seeing Dr. Perkins for over a year. He is efficient, professional and knows what he is doing. The front desk staff have always been courteous and I never wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Recommended.
I've been going to Dr. Stolar for years and always look forward to seeing him! I like him a lot, he's professional and thorough which is the most important reason to keep a doctor, but the real reason I keep going back is because he's kind and has a good sense of humor. Other doctors upon seeing his name on my medical bio have remarked "Oh, he's really good!" Yes, he is, and is also one of the Washingtonian's top rated doctors. His nurse and staff always have a smile and are very helpful and pleasant too...
I have been seeing Hanna for several months now and I am thrilled with how much better my acne has gotten. My skin is clearer and hardly ever breaks out anymore, and when it does I have the right products and regimen to take care of it. Best of all, Hanna does a customized facial every time I come in, so she really pays attention to my unique skin and takes the time to explain her treatments. She has recommended great products that I love, but she doesn't push products on her clients. Wonderful facialist!
