I have been seeing Dr. Putnam for nearly 20 yrs. and am very fortunate to have him as my primary. He is highly detail orientated and will write out all that he is thinking with you and plan actions to improve your condition. He will also see it through to the end and not pass you off to others and forget about you. Not to mention he is by far the most knowledgeable physician I have met in my 40+yrs.
