T. Garrett Purman, MD

Dr. T. Garrett Purman has been a Michigander his whole life (except for a 3 month stint in Bavaria, Germany after being born overseas while his dad was in the service.) He grew up in the Flint/Flushing area and attended Powers Catholic High School before attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and obtaining his degree in Biology. He then moved to the greater Detroit area while attending Wayne State University of Medicine. He loved the “D” so much he stayed and completed his residency training at Children’s Hospital of Michigan in 2001.

Dr. Purman started his professional career at Edgewood Center Pediatrics in Commerce, MI where he spent 13 years honing his craft and building many wonderful relationships with families. While it was difficult to leave his first medical home, he was excited to join the wonderful staff at Mali & Mali Pediatrics. He is looking forward to joining the team and becoming a valuable member for a very long time.

When Dr. Purman is not seeing patients, he is spending time with his high school sweetheart wife attending the many sporting events of his two teenage boys: soccer, football, swimming, and golf. When finding a spare minute of personal time, he can be found on the golf course keeping the doctor/golf cliche alive or attending many U of M events since he bleeds maize and blue. Camping, playing cards and hanging out with friends and family rounds out many of his interests.

There are many areas in pediatrics that are fulfilling but what Dr. Purman finds the most rewarding is aiding new moms and dads while they adjust to their new arrivals and building their confidence as well as their competence in parenting. Knowing that the newborn period is only the first twist in the ever winding road of development that leads through adolescence and early adulthood, helping parents find their style and comfort level is very gratifying. He hasn’t been scared away from a laundry list of questions at a well visit yet!
