I moved back to Harford County after many years in Los Angeles and have had a lot of not-great experiences with mediocre doctors here. I'm happy to report that Dr. Puthawala was the best medical experience I've had since my return. He did a complete pulmonology workup and was thorough, efficient, and a great communicator. He has a great "bedside manner" and exudes a quiet confidence that's very reassuring. His office staff is equally competent and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Dr Puthawala was the first doctor to figure out that i didnt have asthma, as I had been told for 15 years by several doctors. He was concerned that I never had any relief from any asthma treatments and he thought something else was causing my breathing difficulties and he was correct. After testing was done and a narrowing in my throat was found he sent me to a specialist who performed a tracheal dilation and now I am breathing better than I ever have. I would highly recommend Dr Puthawala!

Wow! Dr Puthawala is young, very sharp, straightforward and obviously loves his work. He's a breath of fresh air compared to most of the other specialists we've seen.
