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.

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

Left exam room several times, no one showed me how to exit the exam room or told me visit was completed.


I have already recommended Dr Punger


I do not feel she is a poor provider by any means. If she had focused on what I was most concerned with during the visit, I would have been very happy. But all of what I wanted to addressed seemed to be pushed to the side.


She is a very good doctor and I'm glad I'm her patient.




My overall experience was very good.


Dr. Punger has always treated me with the utmost respect, and explains each and everything she does, and orders.


Dr. Punger is very kind and willing to discuss my health issues.

Dr. Punger is absolutely awesome. My husband and I have just recently chose her as our primary care physician and are so glad we did. She is so caring and loving. Dr. Punger makes it seem as if we are the only patients she has all day.


Dr. Punger was thorough and attentive.


Great place!


This is where I should have written about my disappointment in Dr. Punger. I felt that she was judgmental and unsympathetic.


Doctor Punger seems to always time for me, like I'm special. I know she is extremely BUSY


Dr. Punger is an excellent provider. She cares for her patients and communicates very well all instructions for follow-up care and medications. I would highly recommend Dr. Punger and her staff.


Have had no problems with this physician, staff, etc.


Dr Punger is a very good doctor! she take the time to make me feel as if I am her only patient-though I know I'm not.


It's monotonous to keep tapping "very good," but I can't think of anything more I might've wanted from my two visits with Dr. Plunger than what I received.


I work outside and this past summer I lost a good bit of weight but I now am not gaining any of it back. Dr. Punger has been working very hard with multiple blood tests as well as getting me over to Digestive Health in an effort to find out what is going on.


Wonderful service


Dr Punger took the time to actually understand what would influence me to take ownership of my health-


Dr. Punger was very approachable and seemed well-informed. Her 'bedside manner' was both warm and professional, and I am confident that she will provide excellent medical assistance and advice to me.


*Dr. Kathleen, Punger is a wonderful doctor and a lovely person. My daughter Abbigail adores her.


Dr. Punger has always been very good about listening to any changes I have made or wish to make and gives very good counseling.




I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Punger to friends and family because of the wonderful care she has shown us as a family.


Dr. Punger is a wonderful doctor.


Very friendly and listens well!


Dr. Punger was so polite and compassionate to my personal situation.

Do not recommend to others.

Dr Punger is very easy to work with and talk to. She does what she says she will do and keeps up very well with lab results.


Dr. Punger is OUTSTANDING. Where she finds the time to stay on top of recent medical information I do not know but she is always aware of the most current information about medications and treatments needed.


A clean, quiet, efficiently run office. Dr. Punger is kind and gentle and explains things well.


Dr Punger is always nice, friendly and easy to talk with. I feel I could tell her anything...she is very attentive and kind.


Love Dr. Punger! She always takes the time to listen to my concerns and questions. And she always offers help and solutions to my concerns. Thank you!


Dr Punger is very nice and easy to talk to. She listened to me.


I can't say enough good things about Dr. Punger! I have never felt so welcomed by a doctor! my visit felt so unrushed. I felt like she was really interested in me and helping me find the solution to some problems I have been having! she made me feel so comfortable. she is so easy to talk to and understand! she gave me great information on things to try at home and was quick to respond to questions I sent her thru the mywakehealth website. It feels great to have a doctor that I can trust. I feel like she will help me find the answers I've been looking for! I have already told 5 people that they need to give her a try!


I have already recommended her to co workers and friends.


Great experience.


As a first visit I was very impressed not only with the personnel but with the cleanliness of the facility, the short walk from the parking lot and the east of getting back onto a main road.


dr. punger is excellent


Dr. Punger is a great doctor!


All good.


Great relationship


She's a good family doctor. And a good heart.


*Dr. Punger is an excellent physician. Wake Forest Baptist Health is lucky to have her as part of their team.


Very kind and concerned.


I will use her as my primary care doctor and recommend her to my friends.


My provider of over 15 years recently retired and recommended Dr. Punger. I am thrilled with her recommendation. I have only been seeing her for a few months and she has taken time to work through my history with thorough care.


This visit was a follow up to a questionable blood pressure reading from a previous visit. At that visit Dr. Punger asked me if anyone had ever mentioned Hypertension as my BP was a touch high for a small guy like me. To be honest I thought she was a bit off but in fact she was dead on and the medication she put me on brought my BP down 20+ points (high number). No obvious signs but she picked up on a constant reading over the last two years that was on the high side. VERY GOOD INDEED.


I have found Dr. Plunger to be an excellent provider, and I trust her judgment and decisions.


Very personable and knowledgeable, easy to talk with, would feel very comfortable discussing any future medical needs or concerns


Dr. Punger is good and friendly. She is a nice doctor.


This was my first visit to see Dr. Plunger. I had been an Novant Employee since 1974....Recently started her March. Had to change all of my provider.....she is wonderful....


I absolutely love Dr. Punger and the supporting staff. I've moved away from the office a while back, but still make the drive any time I need to see her for anything, because I refuse to go anywhere else but to her and the rest of the Reynolda Family Practice employees.


*Dr. Punger was very attentive & listened carefully to all my concerns.


Very Good


Did not seem to care and was very casual. Made no effort to try to see me again.


This was my first visit to this office and with this physician. I was very happy with the whole appointment.


I was impressed with Dr. Punger's attention to detail and having checked data from a previous appt with my cardiologist.


Dr. Punger and her staff seem kind, concerned and able.
