About Me

My goal for my patients is to help them safely return to the athletic endeavors they love. I also believe that athletics in childhood is the gateway to health for a lifetime. Some of the most important life lessons I have learned have come through athletics, and I hope for this to be true for my patients as well.

What People Say About Dr. Joshua Purses, DO
He is a great doctor and I would like to continue seeing him. However, I cannot get anyone to pick up the phone. Spent over 45 minutes waiting for some person to help me over the course of three separate phone calls. Never did get the chance to speak with a person. I cannot make an appointment online because only new patients can make online appointments.
