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 a great doctor!


dr. punger is excellent


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.
