Patient Ratings and Comments

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I told Mr Purdy that I did not want to take antidepressants for my insomnia. He insisted I tried them. I took 1 that night and absolutely felt horrible the entire next day. I wrote Mr. Purdy a message the next day and his response was I needed to give it a chance and to take have a dose. […] I have an appointment with a new doctor in a couple of weeks. I am very disappointed. […]

Doctors don't have the opportunity to really get to interact with the patient and more. Patients are just a number any more, and this is everywhere.

Dr Purdy is a great doctor. [...] Seems like when I see him, he's in a hurry to get it over with. He focuses on the issue but doesn't seem to be interested in anything else. He gives his nurse some instructions and he's out in about ten minutes or less

Dr. Purdy has been our family doctor for almost 30 years. He is a wonderful, caring and very intelligent person. He also recalls our history.

I have considered Dr Purdy and mostly his former ARNP [...] my primary care for about 25 years. I don't come in often because I do not feel the need to, as I'm generally in good health and take a more holistic approach. Dr Purdy seemed to rush through the questionnaire and I had to interject information I felt was important that wasn't on his checklist. A less assertive person would not have been heard at all. The diagnosis that ended up on my file is "high blood pressure", when my bp was not even high that day, but I had reported it is high in various situations. The good news is he wrote a referral that I requested for massage therapy on the spot.

Very Pleased with Dr. Purdy. Thankful that he accepted me as a patient.

It seems like all the Dr. I have seen over the last 5 years including this Dr. are pressured for time. They don't spend the time to ask questions and actually listen to the patient. I avoid going to the Dr. except for my annual physical because it feels like we are being processed like cattle. I'm in my mid 50's and have some issues relating to getting older [...]. But I'm reluctant to discuss them because the Dr. is in and out of the room is 5 min.

[...] The only reason I saw Dr. Purdy for this visit was because [...] was booked out for another couple weeks and I needed to get in as soon as possible. Dr. Purdy had an appointment the next day. Between checking into the office and waiting in his room, it took Dr. Purdy almost 45 mins to see me. It was the quickest, less than 5 minute visit I have ever had with a doctor. I felt like he was in a hurry and my time and concerns weren't worth his time. Thankfully his nurse was more attentive. I was so disappointed in his service when I left and I was once again reminded why I DO NOT see him anymore. [...]
