    I have NEVER had worse service in my life. Customer service and patient care is a foreign concept to these people. I have had right knee pain over the past two years. After dealing with the aftermath of the office staff's mistakes, seeing Dr. Putler was the icing on the cake. He completely dismissed two opinions of my MRI (torn meniscus and plica) and refused to do surgery. I'm now in more pain than I was when I started seeking treatment. This whole clinic is a complete pathetic joke.

    Dr. Puttler repaired two broken femurs as a result of a fall. He is competent, thoughtful, and friendly. He gave me a clear understanding of my surgeries and continues to provide follow up. I would recommend this doctor to my family. I was lucky that he was on call at the hospital on the day of my accident.
