Dr. Puffer is one of the best psychiatrists I have ever worked with. In my life I've worked with around 15 doctors, so I know the difference. He is attentive, compassionate, and sharp as a tack. His diagnoses are very insightful, and he backs his decisions with sound evidence-based medical expertise. I would highly recommend Dr. Puffer to anyone needing his type of expertise. Working with Dr. Puffer changed my life, and I am very grateful.
