Dr. William Purtill is a true life saver and honestly I don't know where my father would be if we never found him. He is a rare gem who reminds you of what medicine should be, how things were decades ago. After my father had several Fem-Pop bypasses and continued in constant pain and on a health decline we found Dr. Purtill and he gave my father a new chance in life. Dr. Purtill always called me back within 5 minutes during any emergency my father had with medical problems that were unrelated to his area. In all sincerity I can't thank him enough for what he has done for our family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Purtill for 20 years. He has been GREAT! I've had Leg ulcers, infections and other circulatory problems. Dr. P. was able to help me navigate all these issues. Dr. P. is an angel without wings. I highly recommend Dr. Purtill to anyone that needs to see a vascular surgeon. THANK YOU!!

I am fortunate to have met Dr.Purtill , he is amazing. I had a very bad experience with a previous doctor, only to find another who was worse. When I finally found Dr. Purtill, it was such a relief. I had terrible pain and swelling in my leg and was eating aspirin like it was candy. The staff was so helpful getting an appointment right away, conducting test and scheduled the surgery right away. Dr. Purtill spoke to me before and after the surgery. He ensured my wife received updates and explained to both us in detail all aspects of the surgery and recovery. I usally don't write reviews but I truly believe this doctor has great bed side manner, cares about his patient and most of all has a high expertise in his field. I have fully recovered and back to normal. I highly recommend Dr. Purtill!

Dr. Purtill has been my mom’s doctor for years now. He is in my mind incredible. He never rushes her. Answers all questions. And never makes you feel as though a question is silly(which I agree). Even though the consult today was not the answer we were hoping for, I know he always is thorough and will think outside of the box and has a heart. Great doctor!!

Dr. Purtill is one of the best doctors I have ever been to.. He is very personable in a very down to earth way which puts you very much at ease. His office staff is also excellent for the same reason. The staff and Dr, Purtill seem like one big happy family. My experience overall was wonderful.

I was supposed to have a surgery performed by Dr. Purtill the following day but when I called the office to confirm the day before they told me that my insurance was not covering the cost. I became very upset that the office never called me within the 1.5 months to tell me that my insurance would not pay for it. The staff that I spoke to stated that I can still have the procedure done but I would have to pay for it out of pocket. Dr. Purtill is a good doctor but his staff is not professional.

Dr. Purtill treated the varicose veins in both my legs over a 5 month period. He explained the procedures thoroughly and made me feel at ease. During the procedures he made sure that I endured as little pain as possible and would tell me exactly what he was doing every step. He made sure that I was okay to go home after. Follow-ups were through and he made sure I was healing properly. He has a great disposition and is very personable. His office staff is very personable as well.

The kindest, most approachable & caring surgeon I have met in a long time. He took ample time with me to allay my fears, spent an inordinate amount of time following through on my test results, and called me personally to deliver the good test results. The quality of this human being shines through in all he does. I felt cared for & the entire staff was just as professional. I can't recommend Dr, Purtill more emphatically! Wonderful!
