Dr Purath walked away from a headache clinic she built from the ground up for her patience...to start all over again and this time open her own medical practice - patient centered. Those that know her or have been under her care might not be so surprised by this. Dr. Purath is compassionate about listening to her patient's needs and truly has the passion to help each one feel better. I have been with Dr. Purath about 9 years or so. From the first time I met her, she was very personable and easy to talk to. Dr. Purath explained things both in medical terms, but also in a manner for almost anyone to understand. As with migraines, there are "flairs" as we call them and over the years she certainly has been there for both my good times and helped me through some rough patches as well. Dr. Purath is a hugger and I don't know if there is anything that shows more compassion. Dr. Purath is taking a leap of faith by starting over with her new practice. However; I am a witness that she truly believes that feeling better is possible. I believe in her and I'm glad that she has her new practice open! I am more than willing to drive 24 miles to Burlington to have her as my doctor.
