San Dimas, Ca. |
My Grandfather fell and broke his hip.He is eighty years old and was very scared and concerned about his quality of life after the fall. Dr Puniak was not only patient, kind and understanding, but after replacing my Grandfather's hip, Grandpa is doing better than ever!! Thank you Dr. Puniak!!

I am a professional athlete. Dr Puniak was referred to me by the coaches and other players. He is a brilliant surgeon with the ability to get us back in the game without any complications every time. I am not looking for a Doctor to coddle me or entertain me, just take care of the problem, and get the job done. There is no other surgeon i would ever go to, he is the best!
in Ontario, CA |
He is a no nonsense type of surgeon. He required me to lose 60 lbs. before he would do my surgery. I can't thank him enough for being adamant about this as I have lost over 100 lbs. and now I don't need the knee surgery! He was excellent in monitoring my knee and has made himself available if I need to talk to him. Office staff is very highly organized.
