    Dr. Puig is a very professional and caring to his patients. He takes his time to explain every procedure and his findings. He is extremely compassionate. I would definitely recommend him.

    Dr Puig is a good doctor, he is thorough and takes his time with the patient. His office is a disaster on the other hand. Incompetent staff, long wait times. Never, not once in 10 years have I had a smooth lab visit. If he could hire a smart, caring and articulate staff I would give him five stars.

    Excellent doctor,helpful,friendly and with complete mastery of his profession.In a few months improved by 95%,when I thought I had no solution. I recommend it with eyes closed.

    On 6/3/2016 Dr. Puig was doing my Testicular Procedure and injected me several times with anesthesia, but it never took effect! When he began cutting and proceding with the operation, I felt everything! Although semi-relaxed because of the pre-Op valume he gave me, I exclaimed several times from the pain. He proceeded to inject me other times, with anesthesia. It did nothing!! After realizing the anesthesia was expired he threw out all of the evidence but continued operating! I am traumatized.

    After my surgery i was motivated to leave areview on my surgery& his follow-up.Dr.Puig is no nonsense. He tells you like it is, moves forward.. He will address 2nd opinions but in the end he can only work with facts. Trust me in my situation he waited before pulling out the knife. I am appreciative to Dr.Puig and his TEAM. my surgery is not gaurantee but i believe he made all the effort. we all must do our OWN homework in 2nd/3rd opinions - my situation i was in ER and could not shop.
