Very pleased with *Dr. Punger. Best doctor we have had!!!


I became a patient of *Dr. Punger in May 2016 and have been very pleased with her and my interactions with her.


The provider dismissed my concerns and without even touching me declared I just had a bad cold. Then stated "I can examine you if you want"....??? I have been her for 3 years and not been in for anything other than a routine annual physical. When a patient shows up for the first time EVER (other than a well check) it is because they feel pretty bad and they need care. I felt completely dismissed.


Dr. Punger has been very helpful to me, and my husband during a very difficult time from Oct. until the end of Jan. I have received form her the most help and respect during this time, and will always appreciate the way she made time for me, even when I just needed to talk or vent.


Dr. Punger is very professional, compassionate and open and honest regarding my health. I really appreciate that.


Not my regular physician(Dr. Shelbourne is), but she is my wife's regular physician. We have both been pleased with the physicians there.


Dr. Punger is absolutely awesome. She is not only our doctor but our friend which goes a long way. She is always caring, loving, respectful and very knowledgeable. Dr. Punger is the best physician ever for our family and we are so privelaged to have her involved in our care.


I don't feel I could be in better care physically and emotionally...I just moved here in Oct. and have no doctors lined up....I mentioned this and was asked what specialists I needed. A week later I received a call from an eye specialist office that Dr. KP referred me to him to set up an appointment. This is excellent service...


Best Doctor visit ever! Dr. Punger was thorough.


Even though my doctor knows that I am a retired RN, she has always talked with me as if I were new to each situation, which for a lot of problems I have recently had I was completely unfamiliar with . She has been very helpful, and helped me understand my problems.


I really like Dr. Punger. She always shows a lot of concern and respect for me. I appreciate that she treats me as an equal and includes me in my care plan.


Dr Punger has always listened and shown me the utmost attention and care.


Dr. Kathleen Punger is an excellent provider, she shows caring and compassion and always asks if I have any questions relating to my visit. I highly recommend her!


I was extremely disappointed in the time I was given with the Doctor as I did have an appt. I was not a walk-in who was worked-in.


very good


I love Dr. Punger. She is very knowledgeable and always treats my concerns with the utmost care.


Well pleased.


The Doctor is unfeeling, no empathy, not concerned about the patient, at least in my experience. She seemed only concerned about her agenda.


I have recommended her to others.


Love her! Always nice, friendly and kind.




I really have appreciated finding Dr. Punger...I finally feel like I have found a doctor that i feel comfortable with to help me with my healthcare.


Dr. Punger is top notch. She is not only my Dr, we have become friends. She cares for me as if I were a part of her blood family. She greets me with a big hug and smile each time. I know she cares for me and I will receive excellent care from her in any medical situation I have. I have total trust and confidence in her and the care she provides for me and my husband.


Dr Punger was recommended to me by another patient whom I trust. I am pleased with the doctor and the clinic.


Dr Punger is very caring and very thorough.


This was my first visit with this Dr. I was very pleased with our meeting.


I really like Dr. Punger. She is always very friendly, listens to my questions and concerns, and always seems to know what my issue is and the best approach for handling it. And her staff is great and friendly.


I recommend Dr. Punger to EVERYBODY who is looking for a new PCP. I hope she wants more patients! Thanks for all that you do.
