Purvis Family Practice Clinic Welcomes Bruce W. Grissom, Jr., DO
Grissom received his medical degree from William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Hattiesburg, Miss. He completed his residency in family medicine at Bluefield Regional Medical Center in Bluefield, W.Va.
Grissom is board eligible in family medicine by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. He is a member of the American Association of Family Physicians and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

“I spent eight years as a paramedic. During that time, I noted that an attentive and caring family doctor could easily help reduce the number of ER visits and hospitalization by being available to listen, teach and provide the preventative medicine we are trained in,” said Grissom. “I am from the Pine Belt and am very excited to return. I worked in the medical field for many years in this area, with the eventual goal to be a physician in this community.”
