Dr. Puthoff saved my life. He is a genius! I had a hysterectomy in 2018 and he performed it robotically. I had a very large fibroid and was scared that this couldn’t be done this way but he was able to do it.. if it wasn’t for him and his persistence I could have had uterine cancer right now. I had aggressive precancerous cells. Don’t listen to any negative reviews He’s the best ever , the smartest doctor ever. I was scared I wouldn’t wake up after anesthesia and as I did my husband told me that Dr. Puthoff waited to make sure I did. Your in the Greatest hands with this doctor!

The care I received under Dr. Puthoff was hands down the best health care experience I’ve had. Everyone in his office is friendly, the front desk is super organized and helpful, and communication is clear and easy. I appreciated how thorough Dr. Puthoff was in investigating the root cause of my infertility. I also appreciated that he always explained everything clearly and took time to answer all of my many, many questions – I never felt rushed out of his office. Ultimately, I needed surgery for endometriosis, which Dr. Puthoff performed in November. A few months later, I’m successfully pregnant. I was actually a little sad to “graduate” to an OB! Dr. Puthoff was a trusted ally in my infertility journey, and I would warmly recommend him to any woman dealing with fertility issues.

Can’t say enough good things about Dr. Puthoff. He is truly a compassionate and caring provider. I went to him after multiple pregnancy losses and even when I wasn’t able to see him, his practitioner, Lindsey was also wonderful. Dr. Puthoff has messaged me after hours multiple times to let me know of results which I appreciated so much.

Dr. P is a great doctor! But more than that, he is a good person, and it comes across in the way he treats and speaks to his patients. I feel at ease when I am in the office and I know I am in good hands. Everyone in the office, especially the nurses, are super friendly and personable. Thank you Dr. P!

I truly cannot express how pleased we have been with Dr. Puthoff and everyone in his office. Our infertility journey over the past few years has led us to some very untrustworthy and unorganized doctors lacking bedside manner and confidence. Dr. Puthoff has a wonderful way of explaining things clearly and confidently, all while maintaining a level of compassion. We have also been overly impressed with Dr. Puthoff's staff and their thorough explanations and willingness to help.

Dr. Puthoff is amazing! The way he does what he does so wholeheartedly yet still professionally is what sets him apart from the rest; he has a humble bedside manner paired with a motivation to care for patients in a way that is high above the normal call of duty. He absolutely offers the truest form of "women's health" while many other providers just put a Band-Aid over the underlying issues so-to-speak. We are so grateful for him and highly recommend him to anyone seeking top notch care!

My husband and I were referred to him. I had been looking for a Dr who wouldn't listen to the problems thatI had been having and he did. He is extremely personable!! I ended up having exploratory surgery and he was able to fix the complications I had been having. We were able to get pregnant not long after!! I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I am happy Dr. Puthoff accepted me as a patient; even though, my gynecological condition was not related to infertility. The past year has been quite a journey. Over time we developed a rapport. He is very conscious and sensitive to the needs of his patients even when I was relunctant to pursue major surgery. Besides being caring, he has the requiste professional skills.

I was lucky enough to find Dr. Puthoff after seeking an OB/GYN trained in NaPro technology. I had an amazing experience with him throughout my pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby despite different challenges. He always explained procedures so we could make decisions together about my care. I couldn't imagine a better experience or result.

Dr. Puthoff is easily the best doctor I've seen in any setting. His demeanor, attitude, and abundant knowledge make for a very positive experience. After seeing numerous other doctors over several very long years, Dr. Puthoff was able to help my husband and I achieve pregnancy in such a short time. I cannot recommend him enough to those trying to fix the "why" of infertility. His entire office staff is wonderful!

We love Dr. Puthoff and his staff. After my concerns being shrugged off by other doctors, it is refreshing to have a doctor who actually listens to me. I always receive prompt replies to any questions that I may have. He is very thorough and has never once made me feel like I was just a "number" like other specialists we have seen. Honestly one of the most approachable and likeable doctors I have seen in any setting.

He was rude and wasted several months worth of our time. Also, now that we're working with a more experienced doctor, who also happens to have much better bedside manner, it is evident that Dr. Puthoff isn't as knowledgeable as we first thought. We're very glad that Dr. Puthoff is not the only option for this kind of care in the St. Louis area!

Dr. Puthoff performed my surgery & the level of care I received was top-notch! He has an abundance of commitment to women’s well-being and, equally as important, he’s a skilled & respected surgeon (which was why I was referred to him & how I found out about him). I’m extremely grateful for the phenomenal services from beginning to end- O/R team was fantastic as well as office staff (who are among the most friendly & efficient that I’ve come across)! Overall- 100% genuine, awesome, knowledgeable!
