Had a great visit and talk with Dr Puente I think he's one of the best Gastro Doctor's in this area. He's very attentive, he listens and answers all questions and also gives his humble opinion on other medical questions that help me get some answers as well. Also importantly He's easy to talk too!! He's a great choice if your looking for a good Gastro Doctor!!!
