Absolutely love Dr. Purcell and Step Pediatrics! They have been a godsend to my family. She is wonderful when it comes to complicated medical cases, and even better she is a great medical team leader. She will pull together all of the specialist doctor's information and look at the whole person instead of just one organ system. She has helped my children grow into fine young adults!
