 THANK YOU, DR. MARK PURNELL
"I wanted to express my gratitude and thanks for the kindness and professionalism that everyone showed me while visiting Aspen. Everyone was so kind and caring toward me, after I broke both of my arms. Even though the breaking of both arms would normally destroy a vacation, the kindness following made all the difference to me. Thank you for transforming a probable terrible vacation experience into a fun ski trip."
 
MARK PURNELL, MD - THANK YOU
"Five weeks out from that fateful day we met, and the lingering benefits of our encounter are evident. I still have two legs, one pretty similar to the other. Wounds are nearly healed, pain subsiding, and function returning; with visions of dancing and hiking someday soon!"
