I agree that he is dismissive of anything he may not know about or out of the ordinary. I had a very negative experience with him .

Dismissive about any condition outside the norm. Finally had enough of not being listened to and had to find another physician.

I think Dr. Putman is a nice person, but I wouldn’t go back to him as my OBGYN. My doula has provided me more answers, information, and support than he and his staff have when I’m in the office- and forget getting questions answered over the phone. Dr. also has a particularly nasty habit of dismissing anything that you have to say that falls outside of the range of what he is expecting to happen with your condition.

Dr. Putman is awesome. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable. He delivered my daughter and has also taken care of me with other female issues including a hysterectomy. I could not recommend him any higher.
