Dr. Puhalla was the only doctor would listen to me, and understood what I was going through since going to him over 14 years I have felt much better.

I came to the appointment at the right and exact time. Dr. Puhalla's patients walked out and I still hadn't got called. I had to wait like one and a half hour before he called me to his office. The bad part is, he still didn't help. All he was doing was insulting my son about his depression. He had him sent to a psychiatric ward. My son wasn't doing anything bad. All he had was depression. Anyways I wouldn't even recommend this terrible man........

WORST DOCTOR EVER! I have had enough of Dr. Puhalla. All he does is rip his clients off of their money with medicines that don't even work. All Dr. Puhalla likes to do is cause problems with his clients' families. He practically called my daughter an idiot. He made a poster in his office putting my daughter's name on a paper, pointing an arrow with it and put "The dumbest girl I've ever seen". We didn't even do anything to him and he just started to cause problems....

I wouldn't even recommend Puhalla to anyone. He just tells my sister that she isn't normal and needs help when all she has is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Puhalla scams people for the money and does not even help anyone!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Puhalla has been ripping me off with useless meds and with his tricks and the games he plays with all of his clients. Unbelievable, I can't believe I went to this money hungry fraud.. I had to wait for an hour everytime I went to both Scranton Counseling and the Complex Building in Clay Ave., and the wierd thing is, the same clients he had came out 5 minutes after an hour before I even came... Just don't even go to Dr. Puhalla, I don't even recommend this fraud..
