Patient Comments (38)
I’d give more than 5 stars if I could. From beginning to end, Dr. Pumill was courteous and explained everything in detail. After visiting a previous cardiologist whom I didn’t have a great experience with, I was referred to this office. I am so glad I made the decision to come here and will continue to do so with regards to any cardiology inquiries that I may have moving forward. Thank you for everything that you and your staff had done for me, Dr. Pumill!

Dr.Rick Pumill is a diamond in the rough, which is rare ! He has the perfect bedside manner, incredibly knowledgeable, caring and sensitive to your every medical need(s). I am extremely fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Pumill, he is one of a kind. Thanks Dr.Pumill and staff

in Rockaway, NJ |
In my 50 years the best doctor-patient experience I had. Dr. Pumill is not only a great physician, he has an amazing bed side manner, he is empathetic and caring. I can not say enough about him and his manners and approach to educate, diagnose, explain... I will recommend him to all my family and friends.
Secaucus, NJ |
I like the doctor very much. I do not like his billing system. Every test I'd read by different doctors. My copay is $20.00 but over visit cost me sixty dollars because I had three tests. I don't think that's a good way to bill.
in East Stroudsburg, PA |
DR. Pumill bed side manner is exceptional, you don't feel like your in and out of his office when he is examining you. He makes you feel like he real cares about you, not just a number during his course of work.
in Ft Lee, NJ |
I've been a patient of Dr. Pumill for over 25 years. Dr. Pumill saved my life. Without him I would have been dead 5 years ago. Thank you Dr. Pumill. God bless you.
in Secaucus, NJ |
He honestly is the best DOCTOR I ever have been to. Besides being down to earth, he is very very caring. You will not be disappointed at all.
in Lyndhurst, NJ |
Dr. Pumill has been treating me for a little under a year and I have seen him several times. Highly recommended! He really, really goes out of his way to communicate with his patients and ensure his patients are not only treated well, but that they receive the follow-up care they require. His office staff is excellent. Many physicians would do well to model Dr. Pumill's methodology for patient care and communication.
in Edgewater, NJ |
I felt that Dr. Pumill put me at ease. He explained my condition to me so that I could understand what was wrong and how we were going to correct any problems. By the end of my appointment I felt that I was educated on Afib and that we were going to do everything available for me to have a healthy life.
in Secaucus , NJ |
Takes time with his patients. Educates his patients. Such a breath of fresh air- reminds me of the true meaning of what a doctor is. He treats the patient - makes the patient feel cared for . Sets a realistic plan in place. Makes you feel the care he renders for his patients is exactly what he would do for his family member. Staff is excellent.

I cannot say enough about this man. My husband and I saw Dr. Pumill last week as new patients. His staff was very polite and we were both in and out of there in an hour which was better than I expected. Dr. Pumill was excellent, he speaks to you as a person, is very realistic in terms of your everyday life and educates you about what you're seeing him for as well as the goals he would like you to achieve to be more healthy. He was very funny and had a great sense of humor. A+++++++!!!!

If you are looking for an exceptional cardiologist who truly can make a difference, look no further. Three years ago, I saw Dr. Pumill for the first time. I was apprehensive and reluctant based on 4 decades of previous doctor's inability to properly diagnose my problem. I can say without hesitation, I am alive and doing well because of his skill and persuasive ability. I am at peace knowing that I am in the best of hands. What a difference the right doctor makes.
in Weehawken, NJ |
I would in a nanno second recommend Dr Pumill. He makes you feel very comfortable, talks to you not down to you, is considerate, very knowledgeable, Dr Pumill always has responses that a layman can understand and is very observant and realistic. He has a great bedside manner and I have been a patient for more than 20 years and I will not go to anyone else. God bless Dr Pumill forever! Excellent in the medical field, assessing, diagnosing, curing patients.
in Secaucus, NJ |
In a healthcare entity that highlights “next patient,” Dr. Pumill has remarkably prioritize on “making it right.” An awfully sound in my heart led me to his office. A horrible mitral regurgitation put a brief stop in my path to obtaining a doctorates in social work. His dedication and attention saved my life in a world of wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am physicians. A thanks cannot hold my gratitude. Dr. Pumill I'm in your debt. I will care for others as you care for me .Oh captain, my captain!!!
in Edison, NJ |

Dr. Pumill was extremely thorough during my first visit with over one hour spent reviewing my medical background and discussing my medical protocol for the future. I feel confident that Dr. Pumill will take a personal interest in my health and well being. Annette Altamura

in Wyckoff, NJ |
Doctor and staff were professional and very thorough. Doctor spent a lot of time with me getting to know me and my history.
in Hoboken, NJ |
After my examination, Dr. Pumill held "class." With a magic marker and whiteboard, he explained and illustrated my condition -- vasovagal syncope. He ROCKED that lesson!!! He also answered all my questions. He was unhurried. He didn't have his hand on the doorknob. He said informed patients are more compliant. But I think that he inspires by example. He's such an EXCELLENT doctor, that you want to be the best patient! His staff is also caring, kind and professional. THANK YOU! You guys ROCK!!!!

I went today for the first time to Dr.Pumill. I was apprehensive as I have not been to a cardiologist in a long time. I have a murmur from a childhood disease and I usually have regular checkups but I was negligent and waited a long time. Dr Pumill put me right at ease and gave me a thorough checkup and took all my history. He is so easy to talk with. I have to go back to get a stress test and this time I feel will feel less stressed and more comfortable do to his manner and professionalism!

Great bedside manner. Professional yet personable. Knowledgeable. Great facility. My only issue is wait time. He is high in demand and spends time with you. I have switched doctors due to wait time but Dr. Pumill is the exception. Worth the wait.
