His nursing assistant was not friendly at all. Although Purdom was friendly, I would not return to him for future pregnancies because of the bad taste that was left in my mouth after my experience. I felt like my concerns weren't taken seriously by neither his nurse or Purdom. Also, i am extremely unsatisfied with the care and instructions I received from him after my c-sect. I ended up with an infection, my cut reopening, and an emergency stay at the hospital.

DONT USE THIS DOCTOR! His midwives are nice but as soon as i met him he raised some red flags with me. His waiting time is usually half hour to an hour to see him and the waiting room is kinda dirty and always filled with screaming unruly kids whose parent's neglect to discipline them. He is very forgetful and forgets dates and gestational ages very easily. Second was when he made an inappropriate joke in front of my husband when they first met by saying "Who was the other guy before?" I thank god my husband knows i would never cheat on him, we were both pretty angry with Purdom after that. Third was his constant pressure to take pain medication for labor and the scoffing at the response of "ill try to go through labor without it." The final straw was when i began to have painful contractions and went to labor and delivery, unfortunately i was not dilated/effaced enough to be kept. Purdom has the nerve to call me when im absolutely feeling out of it and scold me for going to the hospital of my choice even though he was signed up to deliver there! He wanted me to deliver at a hospital about 30 minutes away from my house strictly because it was convenient for him.

Luckily i was able to find a new doctor so close to my due date. He was shocked that my daughter's size was not being tracked at all. Im 37 weeks and shes already over 7 pounds which means she would be about 10 pounds if i were to carry her for all 40 weeks! Im hoping this doctor can save me from needing a c-section because of Purdom's gross neglect.

I'm just guessing, because I used Dr. Purdom for the first time last year (in 2009).

He delivered our fourth child. I know he also delivered my cousin who is around 35 years old, so I know he must be close to retirement.

I feel very good about seeing a doctor with a lot of experience, so it was comforting that he's been around for a long time here in Whittier and I'd heard good things.

I mainly saw his daughter at the clinic. She was very friendly but accidentally prescribed be the wrong beta blocker for pregnancy induced high bp. Thankfully, the pharmacist caught it and said its not safe to take while pregnant. Yikes.

Dr. Purdom was just very forgetful on a lot of occassions during those 6 months. The morning after my delivery, he did the routine checkup at the hospital (just hours after my delivery) and said all kinds of weird stuff (confusing me with another lady altogether??), and then just walked out, probably embarrassed. He was giving me instructions as if I'd had a C section, things like that. Forgot to do the tubal ligation, so they took out my epidural, is another thing that comes to mind.

When I saw the video of the birth I gasped because I am NOT exaggerating. He came VERY close to dropping my son, who I guess shot out quicker than the doctor anticipated. I recall him saying something like "whoa!, whoa!" but not until I viewed it did I realize that he BARELY grabbed my son, who could have suffered a serious injury if he'd been dropped head first at that speed.

So the doctor had me bring my son to his office later for circumcision. I have another son and I also helped raise 3 of my brothers. The foreskin on this baby is still over the tip of the penis! I think its so weird, having to pull back the skin of a circumsized baby. The pediatrician agreed but said he must not have cut enough skin and that hopefully it will be alright later as the baby grows. Hopefully. /:

I thought Dr.Purdom was wonderful...until the delivery,My son was having difficulty being born,instead of giving me a c-section,he opted to used forceps to pull my son out.Well now my son has a brain injury,seizures and cerebral palsy...all because he didn't make the right decision..All the other OB/GYN 'S in town knew who had done that without speaking his name.he uses 19th century ways in the 21st century..my son has to struggle his whole life because of this man...don't let him do it to you..I trusted him too.

Dr. Purdom is the best! When I first learned that I was pregnant I went to Dr. Melnick, and like him well enough, but kept getting passed off to Dr. Soloway (the other Dr. in his practice) even after I made it clear to the (very unprofessional and obnoxious) front office that I didn't like Soloway. He was rude, condescending and always in a hurry. When I switched to Dr. Purdom on a recommendation I was amazed at the difference. The office staff is so sweet and helpful and Dr. Purdom was amazing. He answered all of my questions and made me feel super comfortable. I saw him for over half of my pregnancy and I plan on seeing him for my usual check ups and when I have another child.

I went about 3 weeks ago to Dr. Purdum's office after finding out that I and my husband were expecting our 1st baby together. I was so concerned because with my other 2 kids i had delivered in Orange County with 2 different OB's that eventually lost their license, which i would think would make any expecting mother skeptical . When i got to Dr. Purdum's office i felt so comfortable and cared for. I explained to his nurse that i had a unique clotting factor disease which a lot of md's don??t know about and that would make me a high risk pregnancy when she told Dr. Purdum he right away knew exactly what that disease was and immediately laid out a plan for my pregnancy I can't wait to continue my ob care with him I honestly feel so safe with him as my doctor. Thanks Dr. Purdum you are truly the best!!!!

I LOVE Doctor Purdom. He was great. I had previously gone to Mishal & Bender Ass. in Downey & was so uncomfortable when I went, the staff was rude & I had a very bad experience with the Dr. she did not care at all about what was happening to me. I switched right away & called a few Dr. offices & spoke to Alicia & she answered all my questions & was So nice & had wonderful things to say that I decided on Purdom. I love that I only saw him and he seemed to care a lot for all patients. My water broke at 2:30ish in the morning & we called him & told us exactly what to do. Once we got to the hospital we found out that I needed an emergency c-section & he was there quickly & was great. I would recommend him to EVERYONE. When we have another baby, he will be my Doctor. 5 stars is not enough for him.

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Purdom and his staff. Dr. purdom has delivered all three of my kids. My experience with him was great. He is a wonderful and caring doctor with great experience. If I would ever have another baby myself I would put my care in his hands knowing that I could not be in better hands other than with him. GOD BLESS DR. PURDOM!!

Dr. Purdom was my daughter's doctor. When I went with her on her appointments I felt that she was in excellent hands. She had a high risk pregnancy, but delivered a healthy baby boy! The nurses at this facility are wonderful!!!

I had to change from Bright Women's , where I seriously felt like just a number to Dr. Purdom, due to insurance reasons. I am so glad I did! He is a great doctor and is one of the busiest here in Whittier, but you don't wait FOREVER like at Bright Women's. And, the greatest part is his staff, he has ONE nurse, Melva and one office manager, Alicia. Even two years after my daughter was born, Alicia still knows my name when I call! I had a very difficult pregnancy, suffering from pre eclampsia and was put on bedrest. If it weren't for my husband and Melva, I would have lost my mind! My only "outings" were to the doctor on Tuesday and Fridays....When my daughter was born, it was an emergency C-section, Dr. Purdom did everything perfectly, and we have a healthy, bright, beautiful girl!
