I saw Dr. Puder along with differrnt therapists 5 years. I went through 2 partial inpatient programs with one if them being the MEND program which he ran. I've learned many skills for a better and happier life. He was always genuine about my well being and took the time to make sure I was in a good combination of medications as well. I would recommend Dr. Puder 100 times over.

Dr. Puder is the only phychiatrist I have ever seen. I was suffering from severe depression and anxiety since the late fall of 2018. I saw Dr. Puder in January 2019 and was put on medication and into intense therapy to help me sleep and feel better. Today just 5 months later I am cutting down on some of the medications and feeling back to myself thanks to the team work of Dr. Puder. He listens, he cares, he prays for his patients. I am grateful for Dr. Puder

Thanks to Dr. Puder, I joined the MEND program. With his help and the help of his team, I was able to overcome several obstacles that prohibited me from driving, working, and having a life. He knew exactly what I needed, even though I was skeptical. I decided to give him and the program a try, giving it all that I had. The work was no easy task. Now there is no turning back. I am doing all the things I want to do and I am continuing to grow strong and move forward. Rose in Lakeview, Ca.

I visited Dr. Puder because of severe anxiety regarding a health issue. He has provided me with the proper medications, information and counseling to significantly reduce my anxiety. I would strongly recommend his services if needed.

Business psychiatry, not what it sounds like. We work with people, do everything right, yet relations do not work out. For some of us, we lose no matter how hard we try. Dr. Puder listens, thinks, observes, then gives ideas for you to make changes and how to change. He also gives ideas for you to better understand and work with other people. His approach uniquely combines personal insight and self-awareness with better understanding of how others perceive you. In a few weeks life becomes better.

I highly recommend Dr. David Puder. He is compassionate, understanding, and easy to talk with. I appreciate that he seeks to treat the whole person. I feel extremely grateful that he pushed me to have a sleep study. I did follow through with that eventually, although I expected it to be a waste of time and money. Turns out, it was the best thing ever. I have OSA and have started CPAP therapy a week ago and it is already changing my life for the better. Listen to Dr. Puder!

I recommend this doctor 100%. I connected with him very easily which for me is very difficult. He is a genuine kind caring human being with my best interest number one in hand. I believe the doctor is very well educated and must have been top in his class. It's amazing in a relatively short time this doctor became a director of a Loma Linda psychiatric outpatient program.. I trust this doctor explicitly and again that's very difficult for me to do.I've been very blessed to have been in his hands

Dr. Puder is an amazing physician. He is incredibly patient and insightful, and always takes the time to work through problems and find solutions that benefit your overall well being. I appreciate how much time he spends actively listening and giving thoughtful responses that aren't just textbook answers. He genuinely cares about your well being and what goes on in your life, and loves to share knowledge, books, articles, etc. that are really fascinating and helpful.

He is just an amazing physician. He takes the time to actually listen to you and works with you. He really makes me feel not judged and he works with me in whatever I ask. He responds very quickly to emails or phone calls.
