Ringgold, GA |
I Have been with doctor puentes for 5 years and he has helped my thyroid levels a lot. He is a great specialist
in Ringgold, GA |
Dr. Puentes is great thyroid specialist.
Norcross, GA |
I found Dr. Puentes after I researched endocrinologists to follow up after my partial thyroidectomy. I honestly expected him to say "we are just going to do this and that" but he really took the time to listen to my expectations of treatment and concerns/questions I had. He genuinely cares about his patients. His staff is so friendly and I have never had an issue with scheduling, billing, etc. Although his office is 24 miles from me, he is worth the drive!
in Hiram, GA |
Dr. Puentes is very knowledgeable and informative!. He is well-versed in his field of medicine and has a friendly 'patient-doctor' manner. He is able to make me feel at ease, no matter what the issue. GREAT GUY...GREAT DOCTOR!

Dr. Francisco Puentes has been treating me for thyroid issues for over a year. He has been caring and honest and I appreciate all the information he has provided regarding my thyroid issues. His nurse Martha, and assistant Mary, are wonderful, very pleasant and always return my calls.
in Marietta, GA |
Dr. Puentes, his nurse Martha, and Admin Asst, Mary, are all very helpful, professional and really nice.
Marietta, GA |
Dr. Puentes was very thorough, caring, and honest when speaking with me regarding my thyroid issues. I have never had a doctor before that took enough consideration to ask me how I would like to space out my lab scheduling to make the most of my insurance benefits. Aside from that, he was pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. I will continue care with Dr. Puentes, and recommend him to friends and family.
in Dallas, GA |
Dr. Puentes has always treated me very well. He spends lots of time with his patients and thoroughly explains everything. He is very gentle when performing procedures and appears to truly care about his patients. He has always treated me with compassion and kindness. I highly recommend him.
Marietta, GA |
I do not recommend Dr. Puentes to any new patient seeking support. I was alarmed at the first words from his mouth , This may very well be our last meeting, He is very self-authoritative and has dictator like tendencies. I actually had to rethink many personal issues / motivations after the first visit, but found that my self-examination was more harmful than beneficial as my motivations from the beginning were truthful and correct. The Dr chooses to blame the victim, not support the spirit
in Marietta, GA |
Excellent manner, knowledge of medical conditions, god guy.
in Marietta, GA |
Very pleased with him. Dr. Puentes did not rushed the experience at all, he took all time needed in order to understand my problems.
Irvine, CA |
Very pleased with my first visit. He spent enough time discussing my history and even performed a thyroid ultrasound himself, which is something that had not been done in 7 years by my previous provider. He explained what he was viewing throughout the procedure.
Doctor Puentes has excellent bedside manners and spends enough time with me explaining my condition and treatment.

Great experience, great doctor. My thyroid disorder is controlled, friendly staff.
