Dr. Pu had an impressive resume so I thought he would probably be good. I was very wrong he was by far one of the worst docs I have ever been to. Zero bedside manner, zero care for his patients, zero personality or warmth. I saw him once and was so put off by him I got my prescriptions and walked out the door. It's really unfortunate doctors of his stature are still practicing medicine with all the technology and regulations of today.

Dr Pu does not provide the required management of care for mental health disorders, he just writes a prescription for medication. He does not show genuine concern for the client. I would never recommend him to provide care to anyone. Office staff unprofessional, business office Rep Nicole disrespectful, does not communicate effectively with client or family member. Did not inform client until months later insurance not accepted, then informs client of bill for $95.00 then states bill $450.00.

I do not recommend anyone to go to this doctor. My mother was a patient of Dr. Pu and I am so disappointed in how she was treated by him and his entire staff. We learned that Dr. Pu was keeping inaccurate medical records of her visits and medications- is this how you practice?? I do not agree with the way they use their patients as cash dispensers. They should be ashamed of themselves and how they treat people in need.

No effective communicate; appts rushed. Its important to communicate with Drs prescribing you meds. I feel stigmatized, as addiction exists in my family. Issues/health scares/surgery heightened my anxiety. I was rxd low dose Ativan by another Dr. strictly for panic attacks; it works faster. Ive been on klonopin since 9/2015 rxdby Pu. Pu dropped me due to med non-compliance fromativan. Benzo withdrawal is dangerous and horrible. Now deserted with 30 day supply, on waiting lists for new provider.
