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.

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. [...]

I wish Dr. Purdy knew the details of my lifelong heart related issues. This is important to me because, according to my former doctor, I will need a valve replaced in my heart in the future. I would like to give Dr. Purdy all the information I have so he would understand my state of health.

I think the office was just running very late- I waited almost an hour and a half, with no warning that they were behind. As a result, the doctor was very rushed, and I didn't feel like I could talk about some health issues that have come up.

This was my first visit to see Dr. Purdy. I am almost 78 yrs old and had not had an examination for 1 1/2 years. I felt that I should have had a more thorough exam. than I was given and I still don't know if I have some health problems or not. I just don't think I feel as good as I should but don't know why.
