About Our Practice

    In Sanskrit, Apurva means unique, extraordinary, wonderful, incomparable, having no predecessor, unprecedented.

    We chose a Sanskrit word to describe our practice because it is the language of the first literate, scholarly system of medicine.

    We believe our patients are unique and, therefore, we provide services that are unique.

    Welcome to Apurva Advanced Medical Care

    Quality Care: We will take the time to listen, to explain your problem and treatment options, and to be there for all your medical needs.

    Complete Care: We will take an interest in all aspects of your health, taking care of both your routine and urgent healthcare needs. We will provide you with the most comprehensive medical care available.

    Responsive Care: We will be available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, personally or through email and call coverage. Our patients have the reassuring comfort that, whenever they have a medical need, Dr. Purush and his team will be there.
