Review of Dr. Purighalla

- in Pittsburgh, PA |

He is a great doctor and most importantly he is a great human being i ever seen. He diagnosis patient in detail and I like his sound knowledge in treating a health problem. I definitely say many doctors should take him as role model in all aspects of his responsibilities as a doctor.

Review of Dr. Purighalla

- in Pittsburgh |

I’m very sick contacted the front desk , they don’t trust the patient and did not give an appointment . Very disappointed front desk and Nurses. Dear Doctor - I hardly visit you , unless it is required. This is not the way to treat a reasonable patient. The front desk is not patient friendly.

Review of Dr. Purighalla

-Gainesville, GA |

The doctor is friendly,takes time to walk though diagnosis. But the staff is totally rude, unhelpful, doesn't have patient wellness in mind. I took test for diabetes & ulcer. All my calls to get result went to voicemail and they left a voicemail 2 weeks after. After multiple attempts I got hold of someone who said I was only prescribed ulcer tablets. But 4 months later I requested a copy of result for something else, I found that that I was prescribed medication but i wasn't informed

Review of Dr. Purighalla

- in McMurray, Pa. |

I have been going to Dr. Purighella many years now. I am a senior citizen and I am very pleased with this doctor. he has a wonderful bedside manner. he always seems to really care about what you're telling him and spends a lot of time with you in the examining room. I would recommend him to all friends and family in my twenty plus years of going to him, I have never had an experience with him that I could complain about.

Review of Dr. Purighalla

-Coraopolis, PA |

Doctor is just awesome. He is the best I have ever seen .. but the staff they never give an appointment ( despite of doctor always saying that there are usually sick appt available for Same day or very next day ) . they always give an appt for a month later .. if a person is sick now I don't think it makes sense to get an appointment for a month after . We always land up going to urgent care or emergency since we don't get appt with PCP
