Horrible customer service. Monica the front desk receptionist tried lying to me about how we were scheduling my post operation appointment. Dr. Puig did a good job on my deviated septum but I feel she does not care as I never got my post operation follow up.

I went to Dr. Puig to get my deviated septum fixed and to straighten out my nose. She diagnosed my problem and proposed a detailed plan, carefully explaining what the process and recovery would entail. Within a few days post surgery, I could breath better than pre-op and my nose was straighter than ever. Now it has been a couple of months and I am very satisfied with the results. I am thankful I went to Dr. Puig, she did an amazing job!

I have worked with 4 other Dr.'s and found Dr. Puig to be the most skilled and considerate person for the procedures I have had. She is sensitive and informs me extremely well on my care. Great Dr.!

Dr. Puig genuinely listens and helps! I had nearly 40 years of symptoms no Doctor had an answer to, and have now been symptom free for months! So glad I found her!

Am certain that people who need simply allergy relief or have another simple issue their choice here is fine. Weeks later I am no better...my concerns were ignored..I had forgotten to turn of my work phone and immediately reached to mute it but alas was clearly too late...her reaction clear immediately and causing an abrupt end to my appt with questions left unanswered. I now have to spend another almost $500.00 to see another doctor and start all over...waste of time and money and still sick.

Dr. Puig performed my UPPP (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) + tonsillectomy surgery ~1 year ago. Extremely happy with the outcome. I no longer use my CPAP and don't snore any more (my wife is particularly pleased with that result). I know not everyone can expect my result from UP3, but it was great for me, and I attribute that to Dr. Puig's expertise - she is extremely thorough, great at communicating with you as the patient, thoughtful in reviewing options - you feel like her only patient; great Dr.

Dr. Puig treated me for a deviated septum (septoplasty) and I couldn't be happier with the process and so far the results. My surgery was 10 days ago and I can breathe a little better every day! I love Dr. Puig's bedside manner and thoroughness. I didn't even know I had a deviated septum! I just had been struggling with breathing issues and snoring for years! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs and ENT.
