Susanne Purnell, M.D.

My patient care philosophy is to listen, listen, listen. It is a unique opportunity and honor to be part of a child’s life, especially from crib to college. I knew I wanted to be a doctor and pediatrician for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Queens New York and one of my favorite things to do as a kid was go to a lake in the Pocono Mountains. My family and I love to cook, travel and hike and my favorite movie is “Groundhog’s Day” with Bill Murray.

I share practice with Dr. Alexander and we work well together because of our quirky senses of humor and love for silly jokes.

Shared Practice

Hugh Alexander, M.D.

Every patient has a primary pediatrician. Sometimes, especially for last-minute appointments, your pediatrician may not have available appointments, so our pediatricians partner with each other to reduce wait times and improve access to care. Additionally, they partner with someone that complements their style and brings a fresh perspective to their patient’s care.
