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

4/5/2016

I have already recommended Dr Punger

4/4/2016

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.

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.

11/12/2015

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.

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.

6/26/2014

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.

5/20/2014

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

5/13/2014

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

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....

4/22/2014

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.

4/21/2014

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