Patient Comments (2)
in Leesburg FL |
Today, I completed 23 sessions of radiation, supervised by Doctor Purdon,an outstanding doc.His therapists, Rebecca and Tim, are an exemplary team. They treated me with great care and compassion throughout my treatments.Although radiation itself is painless, because of the locations that required treatment, some of my visits were painful.Rebecca and Tim did everything in their power to make me as comfortable as possible, and did so very patiently.Dr Purdon treated me with great care and patience

Just a great, great doctor. He spends all the time you need and actually listens to what you have to say. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.
