Ratings for Dr. Thomas J. Purgason
Believe all the negative comments you hear about the staff. Especially the office manager which happens to be his wife and which she will gladly tell you if you she has to deal with you as a patient in any way out of the normal visit. Feel sorry that the doc has see her everyday then come home to that disaster. She needs to really look in the mirror
Do not waste your time with this Dr or his staff. The entire group is disgruntled with the system that patients do not control, but have to deal with on the insurance and a lazy, grumpy, rude staff. Repeatedly horrible, but have stuck with it because the system is annoying, but IT IS NOT THE PATIENTS FAULT! I have been willing to front the cost and deal with the insurance separately, but that has not fixed it. GET OUT OF THE BUSINESS! YOU'LL ARE HORRIBLE!
Rude, confrontational staff. A price is charged for forwarding records that all mds do as a professional obligation. If I wanted to destroy his business I would hire the current office manager (his wife). Not a good place to be if you are sick.
The MD is thorough and knowledgeable. The staff is disrespectful and rude. Do not bother complaining to the office manager about it either she is the worst of them all. I am saddened to be leaving his office after almost a decade as a patient because I cannot tolerate his staff.
I've gone to Dr. Purgason for many years and the only reason I stay is I havent taken the time to find a new physcian. I brought my 18 year old son in one time very ill, coughing and throwing up. The office staff told me if he was throwing up he couldnt STAY. I was wondering where they thought I should take him if not to his doctor. How about getting him out of the waiting room, maybe to the bathroom or a exam room and offering comfort. I had to get a trash can myself. Thought it was weird.
Had to pay extra money to FAX perscriptions to the insurance company because there were 4 perscriptions instead of 3. He would not forward copies of information needed for insurance purposes, without our providing additional monies per page and providing the envelopes and postage.
