Patient Comments (1)
in Carnegie, PA |
Doc Purpura listens and explains. He is a Doctor who takes the time to hear you out, and in return explains in detail answers to questions a patient might have. He is fair and honest, and does not jump to conclusions. He also has a sense of humor and his wife is smart, pretty and professional. He has a great nurse with years of experience.
