Very poor manners, doesn't want to listen to his patients

My experience with Dr. Purkis and his staff was exceptional. We are from Alaska and have never had such a quality experience. My appointment was on time, my meeting with the Doctor was professional and on time. His diagnosis was made in the office followed by a review of an ultrasound, and he was correct in the initial diagnosis. I would recommend his service to anyone.

Before the office would take me I was questioned if I took pain pills. I told them no, and they accepted me. I have sciatica and asked if there is something I can do. Dr. Purkis is the type of doctor that has a callous about patients and didn't seem concerned about anything that was wrong with me. I was sick and asked for a doctors note, he laughed at me and told me it seems like you missed work and you just want a note to excuse you. Yeah...exactly. Poor bedside manor. 0 stars if I could.
