2/19/2018

Have always enjoyed Dr. Punger because of the respect and time she spends with me. Answers any questions I may have, and follows up if any problems.

2/19/2018

Dr. Punger is a terrific doctor. She loves what she does and takes excellent care of her patients. I am treated as if I am a member of Dr. Punger's family. We are so thankful we have her for our doctor and know that she will care for us no matter what condition or sickness comes around. She is also a very strong advocate of trying to give us hints to keep us healthy and improve on our overall health!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2/8/2018

All of my family goes to Dr. Punger and we all absolutely love her. She listens listens and discusses different options imsteas of just throwing pills at the issue. She is also very caring and sweet.

12/18/2017

I'm more and more pleased with Dr. Punger and her staff regarding their attentiveness and courtesy.

12/6/2017

I absolutely love Dr. Punger! She is very professional, understanding, caring, and patient.

11/29/2017

Great dr. & staff!!!

11/8/2017

I have nothing to complaint about.

10/16/2017

good experience

10/10/2017

I have felt like this once before, but during this visit, I was particularly upset about the interaction with Dr. Punger. I felt like she did not listen to my concerns and rushed me through the appointment. I had not seen her in over a year, so I had a few general questions. when I asked about side effects of my psychotropic medications after pregnancy (with significant other), she advised me to seek couples counseling. maybe she misunderstood my concerns, but I did not feel heard.

9/27/2017

Dr. Punger always takes the time to really talk to me about anything I might be worried about or curious about. She is also very responsive through the online portal. I love that I can ask a question and get an answer very quickly online without having to call and bother anyone. She is also really great about remembering little things about mr... like that I recently got married... or asking about my kids. It makes me feel like I'm not just a patient number or a quota to fill... I'm a real person to her and she genuinely cares about me. I moved to Clemmons and have to drive about 25 minutes to get to her office, but I refuse to find a new provider closer to me. She's worth driving the extra distance!

9/26/2017

I really like Dr. Punger and trust her decisions. She explains everything to me and we come up with a game plan for each visit.

9/26/2017

she was very concerned about my feelings and health. I am a person,not just a number to her. Elderly people are not treated that way sometimes.I appreciate that.

9/23/2017

Always have a great experience with Dr. Punger!

8/24/2017

She does not listen and take your concerns into consideration. Cold personality. Condescending.

8/23/2017

I think very highly of Dr. Punger, and have recommended her (and/or the other doctors in this practice) many times. I think the last person that I recommended there said that they weren't taking new patients just then. Even though I'm sorry that that person didn't get in with them, I think this speaks to how impressive and highly regarded these folks are!

8/17/2017

I loved her, she was the best Doctor I have seen to date, except for my OBGYN who also works for Wake Health

8/10/2017

Dr. Punger is absolutely top notch. She genuinely cares about her patients and it shows. She makes you feel as if you are part of her family not just a patient.

7/12/2017

very good experience

6/22/2017
