I love Dr Puri, he is so personable and caring. He spends time with me when I need him to, he doesn't rush me. He really cares. He is knowledgeable in what he is doing and is accessable anytime. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor in my time of need. Thank you Dr. Puri for everything you have done for me!
Dr. Puri is one of the best physicians I have come into contact with. He is honest, warm and personable, and extremely competent. I was at first concerned because he looks no older than 40, but in this field as I have learned, docs trained in the modern era have a tremendous advantage when it comes to delivering the most advanced treatments. My husband's large cancer of the voice box with lymp nodes involved was cured with a combination of radiation and chemo against the odds, thanks in large part to Dr. Puri.
