When I moved to FL. Almost 10 yrs. ago, I was afraid I wouldn't find a Dr. I could have a good relationship with like I had back up north. Luckily I found Dr. Purcell! He is thorough, professional, and kind. I trust him whole heartedly!

I did a lot of research before I settled on Dr. Purcell as my primary care doctor...I was not disappointed! Dr. Purcell and his staff are a rarity these days - you can tell he truly loves his jobs and cares about his patients. I immediately felt at ease. The last time I was there, Dr. Purcell was quite busy so I saw someone else in his office and he still stopped by to say Hi to me and see how I was doing! He goes above and beyond. Very happy to be his patient!!

My husband and I both have Dr. Purcell as our PCP, and we feel very blessed. Dr. Purcell clearly reviews records before entering the room. He is personable and pleasant, encouraging honest discussion of issues. He listens well, taking action based on what is said to him. His lack of arrogance is refreshing, and he treats me with respect. My concerns are taken seriously and addressed openly. He does dispense meds when warranted, but also suggests easy OTC/natural remedies. I couldn't be happier

Was having shortness of breath and heart pounding got in the same day and he pushed for a cardiologist to see me asap. Excellent doctor very compassionate.
