Dr. Puttgen gave me a very clear picture of our treatment options including her recommendation. Where she really excels though is providing that same level of information and detail to young children. My daughter understood the treatment plan during the visit and was able to generally describe the treatment plan to her father afterwards. I could tell she felt respected and safe because she was treated like a human being and not just a little kid. Dr. Puttgen is a role model to other doctors and providers in this area. I wish more docs were like her!

The doctor was very rushed and I didn't like that. I didn't wait long for my appointment, which was nice, but I would have rather waited and had her not be rushed. She spoke quickly while explaining things as well and she didn't really stop to make sure I understood. She also almost immediately ruled out the problen that my primary care physician said I had. She checked my back very briefly to try and find the problem spot but because she was so rushed she didn't take a lot of time to look/feel for it. I can't say that I loved my experience that day. It would be really nice if she slowed down. After all what's the rush?
