Ratings for Dr. Jane Purvis
I have been very fortunate to have Dr Purvis as a Rheumatologist for over 6 years. She is a no nonsense, straightforward and extremely knowledgeable Physician. I have Dr Purvis to thank for setting me straight on how critically important it is to manage this disease and stay on top of regular bloodwork and checkups. Her staff are wonderful, especially Charlene.
She is very opinionated(rudely). She would never explain what was causing my pain & treated me as if I were a child. Unfortunately, I often found myself crying while leaving her office & feeling worse coming out then I did walking into her office.
As hard as it is to see Dr Purvis it has alway been worth the wait. She is attentive, compassionate and assertive when trying to set you up with other specialists. Dr Purvis is up today date on new and improved medicines and procedures. The staff is cold but not heartless be patient they are extremely busy as Dr Purvis has a large roster of patients. Dr Purvis is my 4th rheumatologist and she has had the best bedside manner of all of them!
One of the best doctors I have ever dealt with. I have been to several Rheumatologists over the past 20 years, Dr. Purvis tops them all. It is such a pleasure to finally meet a Doctor who is very knowledgeable in her field, listens to my concerns, explains things in layman's terms, lets me know why I am taking a certain medicine and what to expect. I am so thankful my family doctor for referring me to Dr. Purvis. The staff is pleasant and very helpful, calls are returned as soon as possible.
I am a younger patient, and I am going to be embarking on a "world tour" of sorts in the near future, Dr Purvis has been working diligently to ensure that I am well prepared and on the appropriate medication to facilitate this. As soon we we realized the current meds I was taking were no longer working effectively she got to work on switching me to something else. She is easy to talk to, pretty punctual as far as doctors go and generally a pleasant person to deal with. I also must say that I certainly appreciate her new secretary Brigitte, much more than I did Anne. Her attitude is more in line with what a customer facing role should be.
doctor gave terrible advice to resume a medication that lowers the immune system despite a persistent infection and I nearly died. Their office stopped following up with me, claimed I missed an appointment and when confronted about their poor organization, follow up and appalling tone, sent a letter that I was no longer an appropriate patient. So glad I do not have to deal with them anymore, I have been seeing her for years and she has an awful bedside manner and the customer service from her new staff is a real treat.... especially when dealing with a stress induced disease. good luck
I had my first appointment today with Dr. Purvis. Pain has become a part of my everyday life so it's difficult for me to express how I feel and when it started. Dr. Purvis made me feel very comfortable. I didn't feel rushed and feel she did a thorough intake of my history and symptoms. She said it may take some time to get answers but we'll narrow it down til we do. Based on today's appointment, would definitely recommend her.
Dr Purvis has been my Rheumatologist for about 10 years. I have always found her to be very knowleadgeable, efficient and friendly. She takes the time to give you info on the planned course of action. My family Dr recieves correspondence from her after each visit, surprisingly in a short amount of time.
