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.

Poor office staff. On hold for 19 minutes and counting. Simple order for bloodwork.

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.
