I have seen several different doctors over the years from bad to average ones. He is absolutely the best one I've seen. He is clearly knowledgable, listens intently, answers any questions you might have, gives a thorough explanation about your diagnosis or the medication you are on or his reasoning behind his medical decisions. I never had to wait for my appointment and he was always willing to come in extra early in the morning to see me since I have such a busy schedule. Truly the best.

Dr. Putnam is the first of his profession who has been effective for me after many years and many providers. He is current, thoughtful, and extremely competent. He allows me to be an active part of treatment, listens well, and I fully trust his recommendations. His demeanor is friendly, and inviting. I am very grateful for his expertise and patience along the way.

Worst doctor I have ever seen. Going to file complaint with insurance company and medical board. Uncaring couldn't look less interested when I was going over my deep mental pain . He is a joke and should lose his Medical license.

Dr. Putnam is very insightful, and very careful about prescribing medications and about monitoring medication usage and patients' needs and mental states. I don't know that he does lengthy, talk-therapy sessions with his patients, so would-be patients looking for that type of psychiatrist might want to ask whether he does that kind of therapy.

Rude, uncaring. I've seen many psychiatrists in my life and he is the worst -- total lack of compassion, unresponsive when you try to reach him and truly doesn't give a damn. The receptionist is nasty and hardly ever answers the phone and they never return calls or emails. He went on vacation before refilling my meds like I had requested numerous times and left no way to be reached. I would've thought it an awful joke if he didn't leave me feeling like I should jump off a bridge
