Dr. Purcell is very thorough and approachable. I would give her 5 stars, however I find her office staff to be condescending and unwelcoming. It's really unfortunate - I much preferred her old office location.

Office receptionist (Peggy) is the rudest, most disrespectful and unprofessional person I have encountered at any doctors office or hospital. She is unpleasant to deal with, even when you call with a question or to make an appointment. I have a very high regard for Dr. Purcell and her abilities and have been her patient for many years. It is unfortunate that she employs someone that gives such a bad impression and representation of this office.

Dr. Purcell is pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, explains things well. You will be happy with her. I never had to schedule an urgent appointment, so I can't rate that one.

Have seen Dr. Purcell many times over the last decade plus. She is a very detailed and thorough dermatologist. I highly recommend her. I have brought many friends and family members to the practice over the years. Very unhappy that the current office is closing and we don't know where she will end up practicing.
