Dr Puett

I was referred to Dr Puett when my primary suspected an auto immune disease. Dr Puett has always taken the time to ask questions, run the right labs etc. he was instrumental in finding my thyroid cancer and Hashimotos disease. He continues to consult with me getting answers to my oh so familiar "Whats happening to me now".
