I saw Dr. Purcell today because I recently experienced a head trauma due to a bike crash. I would give him 10 stars if I could - he deserves it. I have seen a lot of doctors and Dr. Purcell is the best of the best. Starting with his office - it is top notch and sparkling clean. And his staff are all very bright and efficient. There was never a wait and that is rare with a doctor of his caliber. Most importantly, Dr. Purcell was extremely knowledgeable, personable, thorough and caring. If you are looking for a neurologist, do not even consider going anywhere else!
