“Dr. Purcell is probably the best oncologist in the U.S. He is very caring and knowledgeable. I was going to another oncologist before I found out about him, and believe me there is a visible difference. I recommended him to my friends who also suffer of cancer. He really cares about his patients and always makes sure that they are getting the best treatment. Dr. Purcell is number one on my list.”

“Dr. Purcell is the third oncologist that I have ever been to. He was the one that diagnosed my hodgkins disease. All the other doctors told me that I did not have cancer. I was so relaxed knowing that there was nothing wrong with me. After meeting Dr. Purcell, I had a diagnosis and a plan. He has been a great person to work with as well as his staff. I thank God that I paid a visit to Dr. Purcell.”
