Meet Dr. Bruce Purdy

Meet Dr. Bruce Purdy. He was raised in Muleshoe then came back here to practice thirty years ago. He says there's something special about living in a big family of forty-five hundred especially when you start to feel like you've delivered most of them. 

"It's been really interesting over the last thirty years. I delivered babies twenty-nine to thirty years ago. Then they grew up and I delivered them and last year, I finally quit delivering babies. I said I wasn't going to deliver any grandchildren. I have delivered babies in elevators in the back of cars and the back of an ambulance, over the bridge in Shallowater, between here and Clovis in the back of a car where we had to do a C-section and we didn't have anesthesia. It was breach. So, it's been interesting," said Dr. Purdy.  

He also said that the mother and baby were just fine.
