Specialties

Dr. Patricia H Purcell has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Great doctor, Poor practice!

Dr Purcell really knows her stuff! However the unprofessionalism of the office staff and long wait times really brings the practice down!!! The office facilities are below average as well - felt like I was going to a chop shop !!!

Dr. Purcell is always worth the wait. Her bedside manner is unmatched and her knowledge of pediatrics is exceptional. We have moved out of state and my only regret is that I now have to find another doctor for my son.
