Patient Comments (1)
in Raleigh, NC |
My mother, my son and I all saw Dr. Puente for different reasons. We all have very pleasant experiences. My son saw a few different dermatologist before seeing him and it only took 2 weeks of doing what he recommended to take care of a problem that lasted over a year. He is knowledgable, caring and professional. I highly recommend him to anyone with any skin condition. You just might want to call ahead of time for an appointment, he has many patients to see.
