The surgical skills of Michael DeBakey, the bedside manner of Marcus Welby, and the kindness of Fred Rogers. From our first visit, to the surgery, to his post-operative care, Dr. Purkert was amazing! Every other doctor and nurse we met during the care of my teenaged daughter said the same thing when they heard he was her surgeon, "oh, Dr. Purkert is the best--you are lucky to have him!".
