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.

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.
