I had a great experience with Dr. Pula. I felt that he explained things well to me, and had a lot of patience as I can be a difficult patient at times. He was both friendly and professional, I would definitely recommend him to others.

My husband saw Dr. Pula after having several strokes. My husband suffers from dizziness and poor vision from the strokes. Dr Pula showed no interest in my problems. He said he couldn’t do anything for him and rushed him out of his office. He told my husband to start moving and he would answer our questions as we walked out to the waiting room. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He lacks compassion and empathy.

My sister saw dr Pula for severe dizziness. She has had a stroke and is disabled. I arrived a few minutes into the appointment and he was already asking her questions about her history, meds, etc. No greeting to me after I apologized for being late and introducing myself. He showed no emotion or compassion about something that is profoundly debilitating for my sister. He proceeded to prescribe a new medication without instructions as to how or when to stop the others she was already on.
