in Forest Hills, NY |
Met Dr Puma 2 yrs ago. He saved my Life !!!. I had sever cardo problems. On 1st meeting he asked very important questions about my life and life style. My lack of seeing doctors in recent past 10 yrs b/c of losing health care. My recent diagnosed diabetes problems and smoking history. He had no hesitation to bring me in for an immediate angiogram @ Beth Israel NYC. He found 3 different 95% blockages. Resulting in Stents. As I said he SAVED MY LIFE !!! He is also the NICEST, CARING, MD !
