The visit was basically to get another appointment with another doctor. When scheduling the appointment I mentioned what was wrong. When I got to the appointment, it was yes you have that let me give you a referral. Why did I waste my time with the appointment to now wait for the referral?

Nothing really bad, but there was an assembly-line, depersonalizing ambiance. of course, this was my first visit. Everything seemed so "industrial", if I can risk using that adjective. But I am essentially leaving my personal physician of the last 40-years and that makes me tentative.Hope to see you all again, soon! Thank you for everything.

This was an annual visit and a look at my belly that has had a difficulty with the skin due to my being overweight. Ross did a very good exam expressing concerns and ordering lab work for blood glucose and reviewing my medications making changes. results indicated more follow up and new medications. I am pleased with the care that Ross provided. Thank you.

Ross Puterbaugh has been one of the best providers my husband and I have ever had. He is very thorough yet doesn't order anything we feel is unnecessary or excessive. And he always follows up if needed. And the staff we've interacted with have been very pleasant. It's not easy finding healthcare you can't always depend on. But we have found it with Ross and his office. And we are very thankful for his care and knowledge.

Ross Puterbaugh (forgive me if I misspelled his name), as well as his assistant, was wonderful. He was attentive and very personable. Showed interest in me personally, was helpful in recommending vaccines and preventative care measures. If I require any follow-up I will certainly make the appointment with him.

I was in for a follow up to an ED then admission to hospital for a PE. Ross became very concerned over the condition of my abdomen where I was getting my injections. He ordered and scheduled a CT and Lab work for same day and notified me of the results that same day.

I really appreciate the care Dr. Puterbaugh has always given to me. He takes his time and really cares about his Patients. He takes the time to make sure all of my questions are answered and has always made me feel comfortable and at ease. I am so thankful I found Dr. Puterbaugh after our Dr.s retired. A real asset to the Clinic.

Ross Puterbaugh has been one of the best providers I've ever had. He is efficient and yet not overly quick to schedule testing that doesn't seem necessary. I have always had great faith in his care.

it was good visit. just get tired of the whole, need to do drug therapy to see if it works. then move on to physical therapy, then months down the road finally get to the root of the problem. wish there was a way to skip the first parts and get right to the actual problem.

I was very surprised to see the majority of the staff to be considerably overweight. I am a new patient. Why should I trust my healthcare to a medical group that has such a high percentage of overweight people working for them. Just not right. I will weigh my options moving forward.
