    How was your appointment with Dr. Putnam?

    Apr 14, 2022
    I am highly impressed with the level of care and the experience of Dr Putnam. She has been helping me with a rare complex nasal obstruction that left me with severe pain and no air in my nose. She has been very patient with me. I went in for surgery under anesthesia. The entire staff, nurses, everyone I met where beyond nice , warming and made me feel so much better about the anxiety of my surgery. It over exceeded my expectations. My situation is very unique and DR Putnam has been my Life savor . She gets straight to the point fast when you ask her a question. She’s the most intelligent Dr I’ve ever met and is a deep thinker and highly highly skilled
