Dr. Bruce Purdy has practiced at the Muleshoe Family Clinic for 35 years. Now, the name - Family Clinic- takes on new meaning since another Dr. Purdy has joined the team. Dr. Tyson Purdy shares what it means to work with his dad.
"It's all I ever wanted to do since I was three years old. Dad's here. So it's a very unique opportunity to work with him. I get to take care of some of my teachers. I was afraid coming back that you know you're always 17 in your hometown, and I was afraid you're going to have that stigma of, ‘oh that's Dr. Purdy's son and not Dr. Purdy.' But it's been quite the opposite actually."
By the way, another son is also a doctor. Dr. Aaron Purdy practices in Olney, Texas, which is about 40 miles south of Wichita Falls."
