Have you seen Dr. John Puente?
Caring and attentive
Posted on September 18th, 2017
Dr Puente is caring and attentive.. he explained everything detailed. He shows concern and is very kind. I cannot understand the poor ratings people gave. They are wrong. I always follow "treat people with respect and kindness and they will do the same."
A Very Good Doctor
Posted on May 19th, 2017
Dr. Puente is a very fine doctor who has been treating my mother for over a dozen years since her traumatic brain injury. Dr. Puente is very thorough in his examinations and has a wonderful rapport with my family. One gets the impression that he genuinely cares about his patients. He is very receptive to patient and families' ideas and will be open-minded in his approach to examining alternatives to medications. The staff at his new location seem to be somewhat confused on the phone, but Dr. Puente's services are well worth it. Dr. Puente sees patients in Lincoln as well as Omaha.
He is a wonderful listener, gathering info patiently before offering diagnosis, treatment and hope. One of the few doctors who sits down with patients and makes eye contact. Allows time to determine best course of treatment.

Stay away from this "Dr"
Posted on March 26th, 2017
My neurologist referred me to Puente and mary Filipino because he was retiring. They took me and told me they would keep me on the same meds that my past dr had me on because they were working the best that anything had thus far. From day one marys nurse Mia was ok until I mentioned my pain meds then she treated me like a druggy. Mary was to fill my pain med prescriptions fir me and when I needed the gard copy prescription my walmart was to call the office and she would write them up and I would pick them uo. Walmart called and was told that I had to go see a pain clinic to get my pain meds. I went to my general practitioner and he refilled them. When u seen mary the next time I told her about it and she said no I want you to have 1 refill of each of them. She felt sooo bad...lol and I'll set you up with the "pain clinic". She set up the appt at the "pain clinic" and I go to the office v to get the prescriptions and nothing again. Abd the "pain clinic " was a neurologist in omaha. Not a pain clinic. He doesn't deal with opiates either. I called to get my tecfidera from them until m I ne got delivered and set up my next appt and the short of it was they wouldn't give me an appt. They told me I was no longer a patient there? I got a voice mail from Dr. Puente (whom I've never met) saying he has informed all his employees there that I'm no longera patient there. They will not refill my prescriptions and will not give me my tecfidera. WHAT??? I'm in a new town no dr no referrals no neurologist no meds. And I just got used to the tecfidera and none of that either? Totally unethical. The office mfr tried to say walmart rejected the refill of my pain meds. A lie! I recorded walmart and my dealings with them after they lied to me. Also because my memory isn't the greatest. My phone gas a recorder on it also. The mgr tried to tell me that they got reports from several eastern nebraska pharmacies that I was trying to get opiates. LIE!!! I told him he needed to prove that they couldn't prove it. The "pain clinic dr" is now my neurologist I was never hooked on the pain meds ever I should not have had to go wuth this chronic pain though. I have never taken anything since I just live with it. My quality of life has gone down hill. He's not a dr. He's a coward. Him nor mary spoke to ne. She lied to my face. And to not give me refills or give me my tecfidera? I got so sick coming off that. I won't try another.

When other doctors dismissed me as crazy, Dr. Puente kept searching for an answer and found it. A great physician. Always has time to listen and help.

I needed very specific help and need to get care for a family member as well. Dr. Puente was extremely helpful and thorough for both myself and my family member. I would highly recommend his care in Lincoln and in Omaha.

Rude and insecure
Posted on January 4th, 2016
The rudest, most insecure and condescending doctor I ever experienced. He insisted i couldn't possibly know what certain words I used meant - in fact he asked me what they meant and then asked how I knew. He kept it up though and asked me to talk without using the words. He told me he didn't like a certain hospitals tests - ones that should be negative if you have MS, which I told him. He got angry. Then I asked if he didn't like the test results because the test has a high false positive rate and he insisted I couldn't know what that means. I had to stop and ask if I should leave because of his attitude. He insisted he didn't know why I was there (I had 2 referrals) and said I didn't "look like anything was wrong with me." Ridiculous waste of time.

Our daughter was diagnosed with MS her senior year of high school. As you can imagine we were very upset and concerned about what this meant for her future. Dr. Puente was very compassionate and knowledgable and always took the time to answer any question we had. I have recommended him many times. Dr Puente is hands down the best!!
Most Knowledgeable Doctor Available
Posted on November 11th, 2013
I have been very lucky to have Dr. Puente as my neurologist. I was diagnosed with âvery aggressive relapsing / remitting Multiple Sclerosisâ in the fall of 2009. I feel that Dr. Puente is by far and hands down the most knowledgeable doctor to treat my condition. I have his personal phone and email in addition to his business contact information. I have used these at times when I had bad flair ups, and he would respond within a few hours. I have even received emails and phone calls from him on Sundays in response to some of my concerns. Therefore, I do not at all agree with the other comments posted here. He treats me with dignity and respect at all times, and I truly appreciate his honesty and laymanâs terms for what is happening to me. I feel very blessed to have him with me as I go through this.
