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.

My comment is this; after a consultation and visit with Dr., there is a diagnoses in MY CHART. But, there isn't a live person to tell me what I am supposed to do with the evidence found.

He seems a bit fixated on my weight. While I know it's an issue it's not why I was there and the little digs and comments were annoying not only to me but to my daughter as well.

The time spent with the provider was a total of 7 minutes. It was determined that a sleep study is necessary, but the referral appointment is over 6 months away. More than one referral source should be offered. It seems irresponsible to say a study is necessary to ensure continued good health and then to have to wait over 6 months for an appointment.

Dr. Purdy has been my primary care provider for approximately 18 years. I have been and continue to be very satisfied with his medical care and health guidance. [...] I had NO difficulty getting through to the office staff - it was very smooth and accommodating. I have never had a bad or frustrating experience with Dr. Purdy or any of the staff once an appointment has been scheduled. [...]

Doctor Purdy spent less than 5 minutes in the room with me and did not seem to hear or listen to my concerns. He did write me a referral; which I am thankful for but he seems to avoid any issues I have related to my mental well-being. [...] I don't know if he's listening or if he just thinks I'm another patient seeking some unnecessary treatment.

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.
