I saw Dr Puri 5 years ago. He pulverized a kidney stone too large to self pass. He pointed out that there were a couple stones, one in each side but should pass on my own. Five years later after being hospitalized with severe urinary tract infection and bacterial blood infection, 2 pts from being septic, c scan if stomach showed a 15 mm, 9mm and fragments that are causing blockage. With the stones needing immediate "blasting" calling to get an appt NOW, proved a waste of time. I was put back into a new patient status n regardless the urgency to have stones removed, soonest appt, office visit, last week of Sept. Then, I may be able to get appt for stone blasting within the following week. The likely hood that the blockage causes by the stones will start be with urinary tract infection and bacterial blood infection is about 80,l%. Catch 22 that may lead to going completely septic. The receptionist/nurse I spoke with did not appear to be affected by the urgency.

Staff refused to inform Dr. Puri of my immediate need after an ER visit associated with surgery completed by Dr. Puri. Only received call back when I notified my PCM at Eglin AFB. Had second surgery to correct original prpoblem not yet solved. Now I am permanently funding DEPENDS corporation. I have had 2 ER visits and 5 self-catheterizations after Dr. Puri's efforts. To top it off, I was informed by office staff that he couln't do anything else for me. The staff told me that I needed to get a surgery but had NO IDEA what the surgery was. I had to force more details. Once again, only communicated with by Dr. Puri AFTER contacting my Eglin PCM. HORRIBLE experience.

Dr Puri saw my daughter and was the first Dr to treat her with respect and kindness. He listened and showed genuine care. Literally the first Dr we have seen to try to help. Staff was also kind and professional. It feels like a family Dr from when I grew up.

I met Dr Puri today and found him to be extremely professional, pleasant and well-read on my health history - which is far too uncommon and I think that shows laziness and disrespect. But not Dr Puri - he knew it all and how the treatment options we were discussing would impact my existing issues. Not only that, it was a huge relief that I didn't have to give my 'spiel' about everything that's wrong with me because he'd taken the time to read it. Finally!! I'm super impressed.
