Dr. Purita is an amazing doctor. He listens, was caring and amazingly knowledgeable . I was told by three surgeons that I would need my neck 90% fused and my lumbar totally replaced. I had the stem cell therapy and was feeling better the next day! I woke up laying on my back, something I haven't done in 8 months due to pain. I have more range of motion in my neck, and 80% less pain. Dr. Purita has literally saved my quality of life due to osteoarthritis. I am going back for more body parts!

I WAS GIVEN DR. PURITAS NAME BY MY NEW YORK INTERNIST DR. WOODSON MERRELL AND I SO FAR HAVE HAD WONDERFUL RESULTS.I DID A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT IN MY LEFT KNEE NOV 2016 AND SO FAR SO GOOD. I TAP DANCE 4 DAYS A WEEK AND THE KNEE IS DOING FINE. I JUST HAD THE SAME PROCEEDURE DONE FOR BOTH SHOULDERS ON THE ADVICE OF MY SURGEON AT HOSPITAL FOR SPECIAL SURGERY IN NEW YORK. THIS WAS DONE JAN 9TH 2017 AND I GO TOMORROW FOR MY THIRD BOOSTER. THESE HEALINGS TAKE TIME AND YOU HAVE TO BE DISCIPLINED .

Dr. Purita is a caring and supremely talented physician. He has helped me tremendously. His office staff called me after my procedure and have been very helpful also.
Dr. Purita has been very kind, patient and helpful. His honesty and frankness has been outstanding, So much so that we have decided to proceed with a treatment that might help to alleviate some chronic pain.....no cure is available..... but just to alleviate some of this chronic pain is worth a try .....and we are hopeful. Dr, Purita has explained in depth the procedure and the chances of a successful outcome. His knowledge and skill is to be admired and his honesty has been a gift to us.
