Dr. Purcell is an awesome Doctor. Always positive, even when I stumble with my weight loss goals. I have been seeing her for 3 or 4 year now. Always trying to solve my medical problems. I've never seen an once of negativity come from her. The most positive and upbeat Dr. I've ever been to. And she knows what she's doing most importantly.

I have been desperate to resolve my weight issues for 10 years. Within 30 minutes with Dr Purcell I found out everything that is going on in my body that is not functioning correctly which is causing my Metoblic Symdrom disorder. She immediately put me on the right track and gave me all the tools I will need to succeed. She is the most personable and brilliant Dr I have ever seen. Thanks to her and her amazing team of experts I finally will get my life back. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Purcell

Dr Purcell knows a lot about diabetes and treatment options. In that respect she's excellent. Unfortunately, she has the worst bedside manner I've ever encountered. Every time I've seen her she's insulted me at least once. Rude as can be, but with helpful knowledge. I endure? my appointments with her. I wish I could find someone equally knowledgeable with a warmer, kinder disposition.

Excellent Doctor! I've seen her for about 2.5 years and lost 45 pounds which I kept off. I worked with the Nutritionist too. I did not need to take medications because I do the work. I take responsibility for my behavior and do not blame my doctor for any of my poor choices. Dr. Purcell knows what she is doing and is big on testing. Facts mam just the facts. She will help you with a plan and modify them as needed. This is the right Diabetes/Weight Loss Doctor when you are the right patient.

Dr Purcell is so encouraging and easy to talk too. She makes it so easy to understand what my body needs.

I'd give zero stars, if I could. Terrible office. Staff are rude and do not return patient phone calls. Dr. Purcell doesn't listen to you during your visit, her goal is to get in and out of room as quick as possible, so patient care is nonexistent. If you use their "portal", it takes days to get a reply and they don't even read what you initially wrote, they just give a quick answer. I was placed on multiple medications for diseases that I do not even have. Find a different physician!
