We love seeing Dr. Pukus he is really great and very friendly. The staff for the most part are great to, we've had a few bad visits due to the attitude of one ( Sophia ) but other than that we love it here!

I have always liked Dr.Pukis but it seems probably over the last year or two that I have been using him he doesn't take the time to listen to me like he once did.I've known him for several years now. I just seen him this past Thursday and felt like I was rushed in and out. Even told the nurse or tech what I was there for. My bursitis on this visit wasn't even addressed. Overall his office staff is okay. But his nurse practitioners don't need to be even in his office. Completely heartless idiots.

We love Dr. Pukis and his staff! Always nice and friendly and very attentive.
Huntsville, AL |
Dr Pukis has been a God sent to my husband and I. We had been looking for a good Dr that would accept our insurance and was not really quick to push the pills and send you on your way! When Dr Pukis was assigned to us in the ER a few years back, we switched to his office immediately! We had a few concerns about the OLD staff of PA’s and nurses but his NEW staff of professionals gives you the feeling that you and your health is their most importance concern. We no longer feel rushed or like th

Short wait time. Friendly and supportive staff :) Highly recommended!!
in Huntsville, AL |
Never!!! Horrible Huntsville Hospital experience with Dr. Pukis -- who was assigned to us during a weekend ER visit.... We waited over 68 hrs to talk to this Dr about diagnosis -- we told in both an arrogant and condescending manner that we shouldn't expect 'VIP treatment" and that he had his own hospital patients to see... Just Horrific and Unacceptable doctor/patient interaction...Dr. Pukis is not a caring or communicating professional -- Look elsewhere!
in Huntsville, AL |
NEVER... Dr Pukis has an arrogant and condescending 'bedside manner' with patent and their family.

Yes, he's sometimes in a hirry, but he's very intelligent and trustworthy. His NP's are top-notch and will spend more time with you. Very easy to get in for an appt, I highly recommend.
in Huntsville, AL |
We've been to this Dr several times - Had an MRI done in May 2016 and have been given the run around on the referral to Neuro Dr. Then I twisted my ankle ... went for an xray, the dr never examined my ankle, prescribed steroids (which they prescribe for EVERYTHING) took an xray. That was a week ago still no results from xray. The staff is always passing the buck saying that was so and so's job. Ive been going there for about a year. Stay away from this office!!

office staff is rude - one person yelled at me. getting labs and med refills is a nightmare.

Very intelligent with an excellent staff.

I usually see an np, they always have been very pleasant. Dr. Pukis and the nurse practitioners go over everything with me and they take as much time as I need.
in huntsville al |
My experience was terrible he has uncompassionate nurse practioners who are rude. He spends like 3 minutes not listening just going uh huh then not examining you or looking into your records for proper care. It's like pulling teeth to get any paper filed or sent from them to other providers, he won't request your records.
in Huntsville, AL |
Dr. Pukis is nice, but in a hurry to get to the next patient. His office staff is not professional at all. I have asked for my records to be sent to my new doctor and between myself and the new doctors office staff we have asked at least 3 or 4 times since the middle of Feb. So now that I cannot trust them to do what by law they are suppose to do in 30 days I have to go to the office and wait till she has them copied so that I can take them to my new doctor.
in Huntsville, AL |
He is very nice doctor but his nurse practitioner is not nice a tall
in Hazel Green, AL |
My experience here was AWFUL! The staff is very rude, and Dr. Pukis spends 4-5 minutes per patient. I timed him on my 2nd visit- he spent 4 minutes in my room. His nurse wrote only 1 of my 4 symptoms down, so he didn't have info he needed and he wouldnt listen - was leaving the room while I was talking! He didn't examine me, didn't order any tests. He left off 2 of my 3 prescriptions; Wrote the other one wrong. Then pharmacist had to call him back again-it was still wrong! AVOID THIS DOCTOR!
