Less than ZERO stars. He just 'fired me' with a letter in the mail because I didn't choose the course of treatment he recommended for my osteoporosis. I called 2 separate times this past week due to extreme side effects from the flu shot. Both times he had his staff tell me to go to the ER. I wanted to see my Primary Care Physician, not sit and suffer in an ER for 7 hours and receive enormous bills. I never did think he had a good 'bedside' manner which is why I mostly saw his NP. So in a nutshell, he refused to give me care. I am beyond speechless. Horrible, horrible Dr. who does NOT CARE about his patients.

My back was hurting so bad that I had to crawl at times. His solution was for me to buy knee pads.

I took my elderly father for a appointment. He had two previous appointments and the office called and canceled twice one apt because the Dr was running behind another one because their system was down! We showed up for his appointment and updated his insurance information with the front office and we put down that he had a l new secondary insurance. The front office came back and said they didn't take his secondary insurance and they wouldn’t be able to see him? I asked if they could just bill his primary insurance and we could pay any co-payment if the primary insurance didn’t pay. They said No! I was so concerned because this was a follow up apt for my dad diabetes and asked if I could at...  more>>

Dr. Purkis has been my primary care physician for 3 years. I recently saw him for my annual physical. Dr. Purkis and the staff are excellent in the care they provide for patients. He has my highest recommendation for anyone that would be looking for a family physician.

I have gone to this Dr for over 20 years, during that time, he accurately has diagnosed my needs, followed up with tests to confirm the same. He is an excellent person to listen, diagnose and find you the correct treatment and or specialist for the situation. He has never let me or my referred friends down in any manner. Words to describe him and his ability.......PROFESSIONAL, ACCURATE AND TRUSTWORTHY.......just what I would trust my wellbeing to

If I could give 0 stars here, I would. As a doctor myself, I found Dr. Purkis to be unprofessional, unsanitary, with lack of proper medical knowledge.I had a cyst on my back that was hurting. Dr. Purkis, examined my back without wearing gloves, or even washing his hands. He also stated that it wasnt a cyst, but a small inflamed pimple on my back. Gave me antibiotics and dismissed me. I ended up in emergency room in extreme pain few days later, & was told that the cyst had to be removed asap!
