Gave me a lecture about how I needed to change my birth control method while he had his fingers inside me and my feet in the stirrups. Described me as "slender" in my health records. I left a review of this encounter several years ago, but it has since disappeared.

Dr. Puttler delivered both of my children via C-Section, with one being a high risk pregnancy. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate! I highly recommend him!

Misdiagnosed a uterine fibroid and insisted on putting me on a variety of birth control medications, even after I told him I'd had trouble with them in the past. He wouldn't consider options other than medication, and eventually I went to another doctor for help.
