Have you seen Dr. Aki Puryear?
Excellent with kids!
Posted on June 6th, 2017
I took my son to see him yesterday. He was so great with him! He had my son laughing and having a great time the entire appointment. I've never seen my son have so much fun at a doctor's appointment before. If you have a child that is nervous around doctors, I would highly recommend Dr. Puryear. He put my son at ease the second he walked in the door, giving him fist bumps right away (with blow ups and jellyfish and all!). In addition to this, he was very thorough and covered everything we went to see him for. I would highly recommend him! The only negative was that he was running behind that day, so we had to wait quite a bit past our appointment time. But luckily Cardinal Glennon's waiting room has plenty to keep kids occupied, so my son didn't really get bored/antsy at all.

1 hospital stay, 1 follow up procedure, 3 follow up appointments and never met the doctor and my daughters leg was not set properly. There was also tissue in her growth plate that was noticed the night of the setting, but never was discussed as an issue, 6 weeks later to have to have it removed by another Orthopedic Surgeon with high importance!

Although my daughters diagnosis is still unclear, we love Dr Puryear! He and his staff have been so great. I have not had to wait even 24 hours to get test results and he is very thorough. I am confident he will diagnose the problem with my daughters hip and that she will get better. I would recommend dr puryear. Amazing!

My daughter has a pin in her ankle and was in a car accident and now has back problems. This doctor told me he would not do any pain medicine because she was hurting because of depression. We had x-rays done to prove that YES in fact she was hurting because her back was messed up NOT because of "depression" and I am now looking for another more understanding doctor.

Great bedside manner. Dr. Puryear can put a smile on the face of a terrified 11 year old girl before surgery. I trusted him with my daughters life and health, and I would do so again with much less fear .
