Anna Purdy isamaxing. She's kind, caring, always goes the distance for her patients. She's a phenomenal person. I am blessed to be in her care.
Dec. 17, 2019
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.

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. The results of my mammogram were not available at the time of my appointment with Anna but she called me later than night from her home to let me know that they were fine. I thought that was very thoughtful and that she went out of her way to let me know so I would not worry.

Anna is the best. She is extremely knowledgeable and sensitive to patients' needs. As a breast cancer survivor, Anna does everything she can to get the results of my mammogram right when I come into see her. This really helps to alleviate my fears and it puts me immediately at ease. She has such concern for her patients and is really all about patient care!
Sept. 30, 2019
this was my first visit to Froedtert- I could not have been happier with my care provided. due to the diligence, kindness , knowledge and overall compassion I have made the decision to continue through Froedtert for my breast health needs.

Sept. 12, 2019
She accommodated me on a non-clinic day so I could be seen sooner. She was very confident in her decision and discussion which provided me with a lot of reassurance.
Sept. 11, 2019
I see Anna once a year after my mammogram. She knows who I am, my history and always shows concern. She is the most stable of any one I see.
Sept. 10, 2019
Anna Purdy is very knowledgeable and always answers all of my questions in a easy to understand manner. Anna is wonderful!!!

Anna Purdue for very personable and kind. great knowledge about my health history and genetics. .
Aug. 19, 2019
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.
Aug. 5, 2019
She takes time to listen to me if I have any concerns. She apologizes for any wait times that are longer than usual. She explained how 2 appointments are now necessary going forward, one for the mammogram and one a week later to see the physician or the nurse practitioner.
July 23, 2019
Dr Purdue is very sensitive to all my concerns. she answered all my questions. She told me to call her anytime if I had a question or a concern
July 22, 2019
Anna Purdy went above and beyond! my first time seeing her and she made it a point to stop at my ultrasound appointment the following day because she knew how worried l was. That is an AMAZING healthcare professional! she was caring and sensitive and went above and beyond!
July 21, 2019
Anna is so wonderful and very knowledgeable. She is so concerned about my breast cancer follow up care. I think she is so amazing and just the right person to take care of breast cancer patients
July 17, 2019
I was very happy with my provider, I was just unhappy with my wait time. I knew my appointment would be a short visit (no more than 20 minutes). But my wait time was an hour.
July 13, 2019
I came in for my annual mammogram and was disappointed that Anna did not have the results by the time my appointment was with her. My appointment for the mammo was 12:30 p.m. and my appointment with her was at 1:30 p.m. She did however send me an email letting me know the results within an hour after seeing her. In the past, results of the mammogram was available to my doctor within an hour. Having had breast cancer in the past, re-assurance that there appears to be no maligancy is very important to me as soon as possible.
July 11, 2019
Ana is always aware of my ongoing health concerns after cancer. she is always informed of what other doctor visits and tests I have had.
July 2, 2019
The technician that did the Mammogram was very rude nd was not the usual comforting provider
July 1, 2019
I wish to be clear that my appointment with Anna Purdy was very good; her scores are high in all areas of service. The issue that I am most concerned about is the change of policy which I encountered with this visit. Previously I would have my mammogram and then see Anna Purdy. The results of my mammogram would be complete, and she would discuss them with me. This policy changed, and now the results are not available until a later time. I believe this is doing a disservice to women, all of whom are concerned about the results of their mammograms. If it is Froedert's mission to deliver the best care possible, the emotional needs of women need to be considered.
June 27, 2019
Anna Purdy is excellent. Very friendly, knowledgeable, caring. The Best!
June 27, 2019
Anna Purdy is extremely caring and takes time to listen. She explains things in an easy to understand way and is always very professional. What a wonderful person to have in the medical profession!
June 23, 2019
Anna was an exceptional communicator. Her intelligence shined when discussing medical concerns while her compassion made complexities understandable.
June 10, 2019
I want to take this opportunity to let you know my total dissatisfaction with the new policy that means my mammogram will not be read right after my screening to have it ready for Anna Purdy to discuss with me at my visit, which I have always scheduled right after my mammogram. Moving forward this would mean either NOT having my results (which can be understandably nerve-wracking for those considered high-risk for breast cancer!!!) when I meet with Anna or making my appointment to meet with her on another day -- totally inconvenient, especially when I have to take off of work to have my mammogram and meet with Anna. I'm sure that due to the nature of the Breast Care Clinic's work, there are many other patients who feel as I do. If you truly care about providing the best care for patients, you will rethink this decision.
June 10, 2019
understood my concerns and helped me figure out next steps that are appropriate. contacted me with further information.
May 24, 2019

Anna Purdy is wonderful. I am comforted knowing that she is there to help out if my high risk for breast cancer becomes a reality.
May 1, 2019
She was very knowlagable and polite, as well as her staff. They all kept me comfortable with all phases. I have only one thing I disliked about the hospital--- The Lighting in the garages. Please upgrade. We are very alone in there. I am afraid in the garages!
April 18, 2019
Everyone was nice and everything was done in a timely manner.
April 16, 2019
Knowledgeable and concerned about me as a patient
April 12, 2019
This was my first visit with P.A. Anna Purdy, she was kind, gentle and very thorough. I know she may deal with people everyday, but I felt as if I was the only person on her calendar. She put my concerns at ease. Thank you so much for being so kind and patient.
March 31, 2019
Anna is just the best, most kind, caring, and goes above and beyond to make sure I'm getting the treatment I need. Staying in contact with the other doctors is very helpful for me & takes some of the burden off of me. She was going to be off for a week, & my appointment was her last day, yet she made sure she continued to pass on information and not leave it just hanging till she got back or for me to try to figure out what to do. It truly means the world to me especially since I have been in the hospital for 7 months and have only been home 3 going on 4 weeks. All the help I can get to contact doctors on the team is one less worry & more time to rest & heal my body.
March 20, 2019
medical records not accurate. have had to correct on most visits.
March 19, 2019
March 16, 2019
Ms. Purdy actually fit me in on a non-clinical day, I was very appreciative of her kindness to do so. She has taken care of the tests and medical trearment needs and scheduled more for me. I am very thankful for her knowledge and concern she has shown me.

March 6, 2019
I am nursing and Anna did not wash her hands prior to breast exam. she had been using the computer. I was too embarrassed to say something at the time, and regret not speaking up. she left my chart open when she left the room as well.
March 3, 2019
Anna Purdy was very courteous, efficient, respectful and through during my visit with her. I felt well taken care of during this visit.

Jan. 27, 2019
all the doctors we see there are always nice & have always shown/treated me & my husband w/respect. if/when we have any questions, they have always explained it to us in a way we understand. thank you for that. we recently recommended our friend's to go see drs at Froedert for a very serious health concern because the drs in Grenen Bay couldn't find out what was going on with him after they ran all their test. Our friend's saw drs @ Froedert & w/in a few days after testing, they knew exactly what was wrong & saved his life!!! sooo very thankful.
