Excellent with kids!

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!
