Anna Purdy is an amazing provider. She is empathetic yet knowledgeable. I had a wait for this appointment but Anna is worth the wait! Last year, Anna had to wait for me more than 45 minutes because of delays in Radiology. She was kind and understanding, as always. You have got an EXCELLENT provider in Anna Purdy. Thank you for having her available to the women (and men) in the area.
Dec. 15, 2019
the provider is great, but I am not satisfied with the delay in getting my mammogram and ultrasound results. It has been eleven days since the tests were done and I have no result. the results were not available for my follow up appointment with Anna Purdy 5 days after the mammogram and ultrasound were done. since I had an experience with a positive result in the past, this is not helpful.
Dec. 12, 2019
Anna is a very caring and professional nurse practitioner. I have been seeing since2001. she is easy for me to relate with because she respects my medical expertise as a nurse clinician and educator. She is a valuable asset to the breast cancer center at Froedtert.

Anna Purdy is very caring and considerate...and knowledgeable.

As a breast cancer survivor, Anna does everything she can to get the results of my mammogram right when I come into see her.

I have and would recommend Dr. Tina Yen or any of her wonderful staff including Anna to any woman with breast cancer concerns / breast cancer. I cannot thank each and every one of them enough.
Aug. 19, 2019
Not unhappy with provider in ANY WAY, however most unhappy with new policy of not reading mammograms in a timely manner. The possibility of having to wait for 5 to 7 days after this procedure is not appropriate for all women but particularly for those of us with a prior breast cancer diagnosis. Again I say MOST UNHAPPY : (
Aug. 16, 2019
while the provider is good I waited well over an hour after my appointment see her. No one told me the office was behind schedule. My time was not respected as I had to take my lunch break for this appointment..
Aug. 16, 2019
Ann Purdy & breast care staff is awesome! where I have issue is that ppl who have/had breast cancer don't have images read right away-this is terrible! Do you realize the anxiety a cancer patient has for days b4 a visit? images s/b read ASAP so we can go over with our dr after the mammogram. we leave wondering & that's not good. I seriously hope you change how you do things b4 my 2020 visit. Time to think about the patients emotions & anxiety. 100% not pleased with your new process!
Aug. 15, 2019
Everyone is so kind and professional.
Aug. 14, 2019
Anna truly cares about me as a patient and takes the time to discuss any problems or concerns I may have. I am grateful to be under her care.
