Roanoke, TX |
Dr. Purgason is in a league of the most professional and kind physicians practicing today. I feel very fortunate to know him. I'd gladly drive to Denton to see him, but am glad he's back in Fort Worth.
in Valley View, TX |
Poor office staff. On hold for 19 minutes and counting. Simple order for bloodwork.
in Fort Worth, TX |
I have seen Dr. Purgason for over a decade as well as my wife and daughter. We have referred many of our friends and co-workers to him. He and his staff have been great and that is the reason why we have continue to see him even though we have to drive to Denton.

By far the best experience I have ever had a doctors office!
in Denton, TX |
Had appointment. Sent me to lab for test. Did not hear back for two weeks. Went to their office. Girl up front promised me some one would call soon. No word for about two more weeks. Went to another doctor. Had surgery. Everything in fine now. Unprofessional. Beware.
