Very Rude Office Manager

The doctor is o.k except that he does not look you in the eye when talking to you and the visit is very brief. His wife,who is the office manager, is a different story. She is rude, condescending, and totally unprofessional.I changed doctors because of her.

Best primary doctor I've ever had

Dr. Purgason got me off of the OTC antihistamines I had been taking almost daily virtually all of my life for severe allergies, which the previous doctor (29 years) hadn't confronted. I discovered I felt just as well without them, plus I shouldn't have been taking them so much because of my high blood pressure. Under his supervision, my blood pressure is down to about 105/ 65 and my cholesterol is down to about 130. I believe he literally saved my life when he mentioned that stress tests do not always catch heart problems, but they can be identified by a heart catheterization. I went back to my cardiologist, who performed that procedure, which identified three major arteries which were 95% blocked. Within a month, I had two procedures and three stents. I haven't had heart pain or shortness of breath since. In my opinion, Dr. Purgason has made the right call on every problem I have encountered and referred me to an excellent specialist where appropriate. In my opinion, there isn't a better primary care physician in DFW and anyone in Arlington would be wise to give him a try.
