Something very weird about how quickly she left Capital Physicians. All of the sudden she was scrambling for a new office. No honesty or reason given to her patients about the separation. She gave instructions on how to have medical records transferred. I did that. Can’t get a phone call or email back. Can’t get prescriptions refilled. Absolutely derelict in leaving patients hanging. The office staff at her new location are have no medical experience. She is seeing patients in offices with no medical set up. No charts, probably no medical information system on her computers so no way to access my medical records. NOW she is not billing insurance either (again no medical computer interface). Worst part is she thinks her pts are stupid, promoting it as Super Billing. Hahaha! Really? Super Billing is YOU pay Dr Purcell cash & send in all your own bills and hope that you get reimbursed. Oh, so we’re going back to 1990’s? That’s what Super Billing is?

Since she moved out of Capital Medical Center she has rude people working for her. I put up with Dr. Purcell’s drill sargent attitude because I liked all the people that worked with her before, but now, no way would I put up with her arrogance. They can’t even answer the simplest questions, and have no idea where my records are. She’s extremely knowledgeable about weight loss, it’s just too bad all the other parts of her business went downhill.

I have been seeing Dr Purcell for just over a year. In that year I have lost 65 pounds and lowered my A1-C. I have felt very supported by Dr Purcell and her staff of nutritionists, nurses and receptions. I am so glad my primary care doctor referred me to Capital Diabetes & Weight Loss Center!

I've been to several doctors to treat my type II diabetes over the past 10 years and Dr, Purcell is the only one that has helped me achieve success. My A1C has gone down 2.5 points in 6 months. She is compassionate, knowledgeable and listens to your personal needs. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor.

I was referred to Capital Diabetes & Weight Loss Center in 2016, my diabetes was out of control, I was taking numerous medications and insulin shots, depressed, sick and weighed 252 lbs. Dr Purcell's knowledge, experience and individual hands on care, directed me to where I am today. I have control of my Diabetes, do not take insulin shots daily any more, my moods and depression has ceased, and I feel great. The staff is friendly and they care about their patients.

I had given up on ever getting healthy. I was 52 years old and dying of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Through a series of events I ended up with Dr. Purcell and her staff treating me. She grabbed my hands, looked me straight in the eye and said- "Rick, we can beat this, you are going to get healthy!" I didn't believer her at first, but now I have lost over 61 pounds, my A1C is coming down and I have hope again. I'm going to live to see my grand kids! I am so grateful to Dr. Purcell!

I can't explain how healthy I feel. I have not felt this good and energetic for 20 years. The ability Dr.Purcell has to hone in on what my body needed to start burning fat is amazing to me. I am a medical professional and in spite of all my knowledge I struggled endlessly with weight loss. However, the support from the medicines, helped my body respond in a way I couldn't get it to do with just diet. I am happy with the eating plan and do not miss the carbs I so frequently indulged in!

When first introduced to Dr. Purcell I was overweight and suffering with Type II diabetes. My previous physicians were excellent, but failed to trigger my motivation to undertake important changes. Not so with Dr. Purcell - she was extremely clear in explaining my medical issues and very, very comprehensive in her ongoing assessment of my body chemistry. She did in fact motivate me to lose weight and control my blood sugar, as well as other factors that impinge on my h...

I was sick and felt like I was dying at 41 years old when I came to see Dr. Purcell, just eight months ago. Since then I have lost over 100 pounds and have completely turned my life around. I feel 100% better in all aspects of my life. This is the first time in my life I haven't been hungry. Seeing results like this and feeling like I have my life back just motivates me further! I cannot begin to thank Dr. Purcell and her staff for helping to save my life!

Dr. Purcell is a miracle worker. I have struggled with my weight my whole adult life. In 2009 I had my back fused which made me weight go higher. I was getting back injections every three months and I had to give up most of the fun things in life. 7 months after seeing her, I am down 48 pounds. I haven't had a back injection in a year, I am hiking, swimming, riding bikes- everything I love but had given up due to my weight and back pain. I can't say enough how much ...

The first step is the hardest...but you know that because you've tried everything before finding Dr. Purcell. Knowledge is power and it's a great feeling knowing the past failures were NOT caused by lack of willpower or motivation..there is a chemical reason!! I'll never regret the knowledge I've gained and the way I feel after becoming a patient of Dr. Purcell's. I'm down 70+ lbs..and continuing toward my goal... I can't wait to see where I end!

I finally made the decision to seek out support this year after having gestational diabetes 4 times, having pre-diabetic A1C numbers, and watching my father go through a kidney transplant due to diabetes. I'm so thankful I was connected with the Capital Diabetes & Weight Loss Center. I have learned a ton changed my eating habits, and as a result, changed my life. I'm feeling (and looking) so much better and am no longer pre-diabetic. Can't thank Dr Purcell and her team enough!

I cant say enough about Dr. Purcell, Thank you so much! Moving from NY and only being on Trulicity, which help get me from 230 to 187. But Dr. Purcell in a short 7 mths, knew the right key to active to get me even lower which is now 156 and more active and feeling great. She has been the best thing that has happened to me since being in WA.
