I would never see this Dr, as a 30 year nurse I was shocked how inept and rude his staff was and had zero interest in cooperating. I have a hand with no feeling and had a hard time filling out paperwork, asked for help and they refused. I waited for an hour to see him and the two receptionist were upset I asked how long it would be. One went into the Dr office and the. The DR came out and said I had to reschedule because I couldn’t fill out the paperwork. I HAVE A DEAD HAND ESSENTIALLY. This was a terrible place, never go.

It was my second visit. Regarding cortisone shot. It was important as a Patient to always have a positive attitude. I must say the staff was very receptive. The kindness, and professinalism. They displayed, was deeply appreciative. Dr. Purewal was gentle during my procedure. He has a good since of humor as well. I was imformed, that Dr. Purewal could have retired. I feel the reason he has not, because he cares for his Patients. I felt that when we spoke on my first visit. He"s no nonsense. Yet he will listen if he feels your being geniune. Doctor and Patiient relationship has to build. It is important that Patients are aware of that. Dr. Purewal displays he's practice is not for montery gain. His office wasn't filled with wall to wall Patients. I have seen this. With some other Phyiscans. That is not comforting to this Patient. Dr. Purewal could teach pre med students not to have the montery attitude soley, when obtaining their practice. They can certaintly learn from Dr. Purewal

Dr. Purewal is a very kind and empathetic doctor who actually listens to you. He spends the time to tell you what is actually going on and what the treatment options are. If you are dealing with pain on a daily basis, the last thing you need is an inattentive and pompous doctor who dissmisses you. Sadly there are too many of these out there. Dr. Purewal is NOT one of them. He is a breath of fresh air in the medical community.

Dr Purewal has helped me w/ my back, shoulder and neck pain for many years. Without injections I don't know how I would be able to function. Because he cares for each patient and attempts to get them in within a reasonable time frame, he can run behind. I appreciate he goes out of his way to help his patient's feel better as soon as possible. He knows from experience how much pain we are living w/. Thank you Dr Purewal. I'm thankful for you!

Thanks to Dr. Navtej S Purewal, MD at the Comprehensive Pain and Spine Clinic I can now walk without back pain. It's been years since I've been able to walk without back pain. What ever procedure was done while I was knocked out worked! Thank you God for your guidance and miracle on my back.

I've been suffering from increasing back pain for several years and have never really encountered a doctor like Dr. Purewal before , he showed genuine concern and truly empathized with my situation . Dr.Purewal designed a treatment plan customized for my specific issue and was intent on finding the cause of my pain and treating instead of just focusing on treating the symptoms .

Dr. Purewal is AWESOME. He cares about each of his patient's well-being. He is HONEST and BLUNT; the way every doctor should be, especially a pain Doctor. Before being treated by Dr. Purewal, I saw many pain doctors. When I finally found Dr. Purewal, I was relieved, mind and body, that Dr. Purewal had the confidence and knowledge to relieve my pain.
