I just recently switched my children to this office and group of Dr's. I am very surpirised no one mentioned the OTHER doctor here. My whole family goes here and my husband and I like differnt doctors. I have seen them all. I like the fact that the hours they have are soooo long each day. The staff has been commented on and I do not look at them as my friends I already have them on my own. As long as I get an appointment I am ok with them. My only negative about them is that when i tried to make an appt for my son when he had poison ivy i was told he is a new patient take him to see his old doctor. So i did and i was able to get my son his meds asap bc of the OLD doctor. (the ivy was on my son;s face which is not good) Dr. Purcell is great for my personality he gives me time and is always nice and i trust his opinion. dr. D'Amico my husband perfers bc he is more of a business man comes in speaks to you and writes an rx if needed and leaves where Purcell is more friendly but both are Perfect for us. I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone!!!!!!

Too bad Mary Q had such a bad experience with Dr. Purcell. Dr. Purcell has a heart as big as the state of California, and he rightly insists on only one physician writing rx's for his patients...and that is him. He explicitly tells his patients that if you need to see a specialist, Dr. Purcell will manage prescriptions. He is genuine and loves his patients, but he DOES NOT play games with manipulative pts. I don't believe for a second that he used the language she describes (F*** U). He should consider not accepting new pts, because he's overworked and I sometimes worry that he'll miss something important in labs, etc. He's a gem and if you truly need something for pain, etc., you've got it, but he will be careful and monitor time/quantity. Pat is cool but overworked. I personally know 9 people who have left his practice and 16 who have left D'Amico's because of the front desk staff, including Arlene, the supervisor. She's short and nasty, and her staff emulate her behavior. I recommended a nurse anesthesiologist, to see Dr. Purcell. She saw him twice and loved him, but found a new doc because of how uncomfortable the admins made her feel, and how uncomfortable most patients seemed when when dealing with them. These 3 docs need to hire a consultant who will secretly observe and tape these admins, then confront them as a group with their behavior and retrain/coach WITHOUT the physicians involvement (i.e. leave it to the pro). Kind of like Tabitha who does the same for high end salons. Then they'll see how their behavior impacts the practice and change or go work at the 7-11. Rating would be 5 for docs, but they fail because they've repeatedly been informed of the problems but refuse to address the issues appropriately. Consultants/coaches are the answer for this group, then all will be rated 5 Stars.

my doctor was Dr. Purcell for just about 10-12 years we have been through alot he has been they for me till recently i had asked him to change my medication from a stronger med to a weakern one just to try it because my skin break out in the winter more so then in the summer from the stronger med and he looked at me and laughed so then i figured i will try another doctor i was not hidding nothing from doctor Purcell because i always respected him so anyway Dr. Purcell found out that i went to another doctor and now he dismissed me from his practice i am very very upset about this whole thing. There were times when he would write out my perscription wrong on several accounts and also on one visit he cursed at me using the f...k you .....but did i dismiss him no just thought he was having a bad day but still gives him no right to speak like that what doctor curses at a patient i just blew it off oh and also he would discuss my business with the pharmacy about my personal business and that is TOTALLY WRONG BUT DID I DISMISS HIM NO NO NO i make one mistake and he dismisses me gives me 30 days i don't have a car and i am very sick there are days where i cannot move and also with the holidays christmas and new years is very hard to find another doctor..... so right now i have assit on my jaw i could barely speak it is so swollen i called the office because i do not know what to do and it is new years eve tomorrow and he will not see me what kind of ethic is that for a doctor to do that to a patient of 12 years we are all human we make mistake but i feel he is wrong in dismissing me i have never never never seen another doctor beside this one time ...... and i can't even start about the woman in the doctors office they are very rude ...... EXCEPT FOR ONE PERSON ----- NURSE PAT SHE IS WONDERFUL WONDERFUL I WILL NEVER FORGET HER SHE ALWAYS MADE ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT MYSELF ALWAYS SHE WAS MY ANGEL ..........GOD BLESS HER

Skyland medical group is great. You can get an appointment for the same day if necessary. All the doctors are very good, but I prefer to see Dr. Purcell. He takes time with the patients. The staff is wonderful.
