Im a new patient to him(have only seen him twice so far)and I already know he is a wonderful cardiologist.He does order quite a few tests-so be prepared for that but atleast hes thorough,I think thats a good thing.In addition to the usual cardio stuff he also offers medications for weight loss under strict guidance shall you want that(I declined but its good he offers it to whom wants that)Hes the first Dr i’ve had that offers that rather than try to push weight loss surgery on obese patients.

I would definitely recommend Dr Puga to anyone who needs a cardiologist, he takes his time to get to know the whole patient and their needs and background. He has been my doctor for many years and has preformed many procedures. He puts you at ease.
