Does not listen, has no compassion. Spends all of the visit telling you how wonderful he is. Would not recommend.

Over one year after TKR my knee hurts everyday. Months of PT, exercise, bending, stretching has been ineffective. Pula did something to my knee but I’ll never know. “Omertà” prevents any doctor from telling me. Once excelsior get their money they are done with you. Nothing but a big surgery mill.

Dr. Pula was very kind and a warm person to me and my husband. On my first visit, he introduced himself to us and told us about my x-ray results. He gave me options to my care, first starting with injections to my knee, and or a brace. The option after non-operative options would be a total knee replacement. He gave my knee an I injection for pain, and did a very good job. As a nurse, I know what to look for in a doctor, and you would not be disappointed having him care for you or your family.

If I could give Dr. Pula 100 stars I would. His diagnosis of our handicapped son's issue was spot on. His suggestions on what to do resulted in our son being free of pain for the first time in 3 months. This was especially difficult due to the fact that our son has cerebral palsy and cannot communicate properly. Seeking a second opinion with Dr. Pula was an answer to our prayers!!

Dr Pula is an excellent surgeon, he listens and spends the time needed to determine each patients plan of action. My ACL surgery went well with recovery just as he explained and expected.
