I’ve been a patient of Dr. Purewal for years now. I Just love Dr. Purewal. He takes the time to explain things and listens to what you have to say. Unlike some other doctors. He has done several injections on various parts of my body. I would highly recommend him. And I have recommended him to several people.

I njust had my first injection and i am so happy. I have not had this much relief for years. This is the only thing that has given me extreme relif besides medication. I would not trust any other doctor but Dr Purewall with the injections. It was fast easy and painless.

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.
