I have been seeing Dr. Puritz since she first started with The Group for Women. During the course of growing older, I have had several issues, some serious. Dr. Puritz explains what my problems are, what she can do and is extremely compassionate. Her surgical skills are excellent. I trust her completely. I am very thankful she is my doctor. Dr. Puritz is the very best around. She is absolutely wonderful.
