Great overall experience! So happy with my results!!
in NJ |
If you like to have a full explanation to your diagnosis and feel that you are in capable hands than Dr. Purewal is for you. I was educated on my condition and she explained in detail the how, why and when it could be corrected. I feel that she cared for me, not only as my doctor, but as my friend. When I felt uncomfortable about my healing process, she gladly saw me, discussed my concerns and put them to rest. It is very hard to find a doctor that truly cares about the patient, but she does.

I found Dr. Purewal to be extremely friendly, caring, patient, respectful, highly skilled and professional! She takes a personal interest in her patients which is becoming more and more rare these days. She takes great pride and is very meticulous when performing her surgeries which is obviously extremely important when dealing with cosmetic surgery!!! I intend to highly recommend her to any one who is considering blepharoplasty. Wait time the day of surgery in the reception area was excessive
