I've seen other doctors and never received the treatment I needed. Dr. Purcell not only is personable and has a great "bed side manner" but finally I have a doctor who understands what I am going through. It is a great relief.

Dr. Purcell seems to know his stuff and he's able to effectively communicate with his patients. For the first time, I felt that I was heard when discussing my pain issue and I have high hopes that he'll be able to help me identify the cause of my problem.

Dr. Purcell took over my case (which is extensive) when my prior doctor retired. I researched orthopedists in Phoenix and found him to have everything I needed in a competent thorough doctor. Then Covid happened. He has stuck by me through it along with all of the other obstacles that have been handed us. I feel very confident in his ability and knowledge of my issue.

Dr Purcell is everyone's dream come true. He really listened to me, took time with me, was so thorough and knowledgeable and has a cheerful personality! He ordered tests, made suggestions and was just what I needed after being so disheartened by incompetent doctors. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to get to the root of their problem.

He asked a lot of questions. He appreciates having a good patient who is involved in their own treatment. He explained in detail answers to my questions. He was never rushed or appeared uninterested by giving you his undivided attention.

After seeing Dr Purcell, I immediately felt hopeful after 2-1/2 years of doctors unsuccessfully being able to diagnose my issue. Dr Purcell spent more time than any other doctor I have ever seen. I feel very confident in his expertise and diagnostic ability.

Dr. Purcell is a caring doctor who listens completely. He graciously worked with my other physicians to offer the best and most complete care for my whole person (not just my hands). He also willingly allowed for online appointments to accommodate me with my injuries. I have nothing but highest praise for Dr. Purcell.
