Specialties

Dr. Joan S Purcell has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Adolescent Medicine
  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Purcell and her staff are great

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Purcell. I never do reviews and because of my experiences with her I felt it a must to express just how pleased I am. She has always answered all of my questions and never made us feel rushed. My kids adore her and that's important that they feel safe and secure in her care. She has been our pediatrician for over 7 years and I have never had a negative experience with her or her staff.
