Patient Comments (4)
Lincoln, NE |
In the 18 years he's been treating patients I'm one of his youngest. He's easy to talk to, explains things very well. Communicates with my other doctors, doesn't push for expensive brain scans although he does recommend them. Ease of scheduling is great and I couldn't be more happy with the man who cares about how deeply the problem I see him for affects me at 19 years of age
Lincoln, NE |
Dr Puente's bedside manner could not have been worse. He belittled issues and insulted longstanding problems. He never answered my questions, instead asked why I hadn't asked other doctors these questions. I will never return to Dr. Puente. Please, never, ever, visit him. You will regret it. The rest of the staff at Neurology Consultants was excellent, but my encounter with him was devastating and ruined the whole experience,
Lincoln, NE |
Dr. Puente has always been of great help to me. I've been through several neurologists in Lincoln and they don't compare to his compassion and respectfulness. I'm so glad he's my doctor.
Omaha |
Can not ethically treat patients. He is also very indecisive and if you don't like what he has to say, he is very quick to back down instead of Defending his actions. There is no way that I would want to be treated by him after my initial appointment, what a coward.
