Joe Perkins, DO
Hi! I grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and completed my undergraduate studies in economics at Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne. After a short career working in economics and then statistics, I realized medicine was my true calling. I completed the medical school pre-requisites at IUPUI in Indianapolis, IN and then headed to Chicago to attend medical school at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am excited to return home for the next stage of my training after an exciting four years in Chicago.
After spending a month rotating with the FWMEP I knew it was my top choice for residency. I immediately felt at home with the residents, faculty and staff. I loved the community based aspect of the program and ability to pursue my interests. I like the broad spectrum of family medicine, particularly preventive health, nutrition and sports medicine.
My interests outside of medicine include spending time with family and friends, sports, running, reading, trying new restaurants and traveling.
