      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
      in Slidell, LA |
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      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
