Patient Comments (1)

in Mount Holly, NC |
I have had several visits with Dr. Purdum III. He does not have the best mannerism with his patients. His clinical nurse is horrible and unfeeling. He did not offer me any hope about my condition, did not ask if I had medication for it and he left me feeling like I had no hope for getting better...more
