Dr. Purewal has been one of the most humanistic health care providers I've ever come in contact with. In my experience with him I have never felt that he has given me medical guidance or a procedure that wasn't in my best interest. Dr. Purewal has always made me feel like I could communicate with him about personal issues along with medical issues.

Dr. Purewal is an excellent doctor. Very patient and understanding. Takes time to hear your concerns. Most places Ive been to like to rush me in and out, but Dr. Purewal never once made me feel less important! He is also very knowledgeable in his profession and I trust him fully. I would recommend Relievus to everyone for pain management.
