"I could not be more satisfied with the fine attention I receive from Dr. Dahra Perkins and her team. My first visit began with an hour-long talk during which she asked me many questions about my life--and not only about my health history.  Her approach is to see her patients as people who are more than the sum of their ailments. Wellbeing is the palpable goal at Elevate Health, and I have felt in very good hands since I started seeing her more than four years ago."   -A.H.

"Having been an RN for over 40 years, I have had excellent relationships with physicians as a staff member and as a patient.  But the best relationship of my career has been with Dr. Dahra Perkins of Elevate Health.  She is the premier example of a positive and beneficial physician-patient partnership.  She brings her expertise of family practice medicine and integrates it with functional medicine to provide holistic yet practical health care.  I feel listened to and valued as a patient in a truly collaborative relationship." -D.S

“I have a doctor who faces me and problem solves with her great brain and experience. She questions, gives information, teaches all without haste. Her goal is to make my life optimal and keep me healthy and the consequences are that I can now walk for miles on European cobblestone streets, pain free, and manage the continuing frustrations of ancient old age. Thank you Elevate Health, Portland.” -B.W.

"Wow. This is everything and more than I could have asked for. I can't thank you enough for such great advice and support. I love your practice and appreciate you and your staff."  -RF

"Dr. Perkins’s clinic is a warm welcoming place where everybody knows who I am.   Her care and diligence in setting up her functional medicine practice allows a visit with her to be as comprehensive and wide-ranging as need be.  I never feel rushed or limited to one issue per visit.  She explains things fully, clearly, and kindly (and with a fine sense of humor), and is a champion listener.  Dr. Perkins is exactly the kind of doctor I had long been seeking—and that she is so personable and pleasant is a bonus of the nicest kind." - N.A.

"My sincere appreciation to you for your kindness, care, patience and expertise.  You've all helped to give me the tools and knowledge to move ahead in a more positive light."  -B.W.
