Patient Comments (1)

I called the office yesterday due to my 11 year old breaking her finger. All the other orthopedic doctors were booked or out of the office for the holidays but this office was able to get her in the next day. Dr Purcell and his staff are amazing and I know my daughter is in good hands. Thank you Dr...more
