Ankeny, IA |
Maybe it was a bad day; maybe he felt like he was running behind. Either way , my visit today was not a good experience with Dr. Purdy. He had NO time to listen to me. He only yelled over me for any thing I tried to explain. I had a hard time getting a word in edgewise He had no time and could hardly get out of the room fast enough. Doesn't get a 4.5 from me. Very degrading. No empathy, no discussion just his condescending opinion of why I had a scan done!
