Dr. Puff: A true professional gastroenterologist

I have been a patient of Dr. Puff for many years. First of all he is an incredibly competent gastroenterologist. Next he is personable, communicates extremely well and easily on a patient level and is thorough with exams and post procedure dialogue. A Great physician. I recommend Dr. Puff without reserve.

Not my choice

He was abrupt, rude and uncommunicative. He didn't find a problem that later landed me in the hospital. He wouldn't answer my email asking for follow up information. His staff was much like he was. There's apparently a lack of cooperation between two offices that were amalgamated into one practice at this same location. I repeated a procedure because of this.
