Dr Puthumana was, as usual, absolutely outstanding in the care and precision of his examinations and explanations. He leaves nothing unsaid or unexplained. Wonderful, caring experience

Dr. Puthumana gave a very good explanation of the perceived benefits of beginning statin therapy, while acknowledging the limits of such therapy. I left with a much better understanding.

Dr Puthumana is excellent. Absolutely no problem with anything Dr Puthumana says, recommends, or asks. My wait times were a little higher than usual when I see Dr Puthumana, but I understand. Dr Puthumana spends time with me to answer my questions, I'm sure his other patients have questions and concerns. I'm glad to have an excellent doctor that will spend the time with all of his patients.

I know I am lucky to have Dr Puthumana as a doctor. My appointment was interrupted twice for other patients which reduced my perception of how committed he was to me. In fact, we probably spent more time talking about my husband than me. I do not feel I was heard about my weight issue. Again, he's a great doctor, this was an off visit, and I will probably see another provider going forward.

Our family would highly recommend Dr. Puthumana - he is very conscientious and thorough. He listens thoroughly to questions and concerns and answers them appropriately. Shows his genuine compassion to ask about how others are doing in the family - and calls them by name.
