"I have been going to Metropolitan Gastroenterology for years now. They take care of their patients very well. The staff is Courteous and the wait time for an appointment is very short. Dr. Puente gets straight to the point , and if you don't understand he will take his time and explain to you. I highly Recommend Dr. Puente he's very thorough."

"I been with Dr. Puente's office for at least 15 years and I find they are very friendly and courageous with us as a patient. I appreciate them in how they treat you when we see them. The only thing I have to say about the place for the colonoscopy, I hope they can find a permanent place in Jefferson Parish."

"I went in for a double whammy!! A scope down the throat and one ☝ a nether region. I was mortified, apprehensive and downright scared, for days prior to the procedure. On the day of the procedure, I had to be monitored on the hospital side. I still very apprehensive. I checked in at the desk and the fear started to subside. I was met with smiles, all around -from intake to recovery. The staff is amazing. Dr. Pollack is very informative, personable and extremely gifted. Listen to me...I was a nervous wreck..but these test were ones that ultimately saved my life. Thank You Metro G!!! This facility is a must recommend."
