Dr. Michael Purkey is extremely professional yet a genuine warmth and concern for what I was going through. Explained the possibilities for what was causing the swollen lymph nodes in my neck. I did not feel rushed and l was able to ask questions. I would recommend Dr. Purkey to anyone.

Helped me so much with my chronic sinusitis! He's very patient with patients who think they know how to take care of themselves better than the professionals do.

Speaking as a fellow surgeon, Dr. Purkey has absolutely outstanding medical and technical expertise. He is also an extremely kind and has an excellent "bedside manner". I have referred many of my patient to Dr. Purkey and they are all extremely satisfied.

Knowledgable and experienced which is what I'm looking for in a doctor. His explanations are good and his approach to solving an issue is logical. Support staff is excellent and amazingly 9 times out of 10 when you call in, they answer the phone and answer your question on the spot...perfect!

One of the WORST experiences in California. Dr. Purkey is least interested in listening to your problems, he practices based on blind guesses and his own theories. He spent 5-10 minutes and was always in a hurry. If I am paying him for a complete visit I expect full attention for the 30-45 minute duration he is booked for. He is an example of the screwed up AMERICAN Healthcare system.

Develops a level of trust with the patient. Listens to you and answers any concerns. Short wait time in office and always makes himself available. Just performed sinus surgery on me and used an excellent anesthesiologist leaving no discomfort or complications from surgery. Prudent in every aspect with friendly staff support in office and hospital.

Excellent experience, Dr. Purkey was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I went in to see him after suffering with sinus infection for two months. He was very through in the review of my CAT scan and explained all my options. We eventually had to do surgery and he was able to fit it in before the end of the year, even though it was not his normal surgery day. He and his staff were easy to contact and would quickly respond. I would defiantly recommend him to anyone with sinus problems.
