A Few Insights From Dr. Dan Purser

Great Salt Lake 2015

If you’re like us, you want to know the stories behind the names. We went straight to the source, Dr. Dan Purser, for a little insight on his background. Here’s what Dr. Purser had to tell us about some influential times and people in his life-

"I grew up in the countryside of Oklahoma and we only had three TV channels (in those days, we had an antenna, no cable), so I watched a lot of M*A*S*H. I know it’s not ideal to get your goals and aspirations from a sitcom, but I loved Hawkeye Pierce. He slept by the really sick patient’s bedside and bent rules to help the patient! He cared deeply for the patient and was not on autopilot. I loved his example and it has been my practice now for decades.

I struggled with the unwritten, silly, inane rules of medicine doing what the government, pharmaceutical companies, and the FDA tell us to do. I despise insurance as their advice and rules for patient care are 50% self-serving and detrimental for patients. No thank you."

Thanks, Dr. Purser, for these insights. We look forward to hearing more in the coming months!
