Dr. Purdy's Care Philosophy

I am a family physician. I try to listen and engage my patients in their care. I stay up to date through journals, CME conferences and the internet. I worked as a respiratory technican in high school, and i enjoyed caring for patients, seeing results of the treatments, and dealing with families. I decided to pursue becoming a doctors to continue these enjoyable things. I chose to be Family Medicine doctor while working with 2 family physicians as preceptors in my Comprehensive Care Clinic in the 3rd adn 4th years of medical school. Their expertise, kindness and contentment with their careeers provided a touchstone for me from which to work in Family Medicine

    My son and I have seen Dr Purdy at a previous location. Dr Purdy presented herself as being quite caring, professional as well as intelligent. In my son's visits, she would listen attentively and knew the questions to ask as my son has a complicated history. When she was informed of his 24 hr inpatient stay, had her nurse call the next day to ask for him to come in and see her. Never had that before and certainly made us feel that our health issues were in her good hands. Miss her deeply!

    Dr. Purdy is the best doctor I have ever visited. She did not just treat me like a patient. She treated like a friend. She was my doctor since I was 4 years ago. I miss her so much... My Peabody Family Practice family

    She is the kindest and most personable physician I have met. She listens well, is not rushed and immediately inspires confidence in her. Being quite approachable all of her patients I have talked with agree she is a wonderful physician and professional person. Ochsner is very fortunate to have her. She is the best.
