    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.

    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

    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.
