Patient Success Stories
Dear Dr. Puc,
There are doctors. There are healers. And there is NO doubt in my mind that you are the latter. I feel so blessed to be your patient and want you to know how much I appreciate you accepting me into the practice. I am grateful that you have chosen to accept your path in life, "dragged kicking and screaming," as you so poignantly say. For if not accepting that this is your purpose in life, I would not be so lucky to be in your care. I truly honor you for embracing the reality as nothing is more difficult than when the universe presents our true journey, especially to the point where we can't ignore it anymore.
I have been on the quest for better health for many years, with many different practitioners, and what excites me about your approach is your unwillingness to accept treatments that aren't working and time to look deeper or try something else. This is such a fresh approach and for the first time, in a very long time, gives me hope on a different level. You are an amazing balance of a brilliant scientific mind combined with such a unique understanding of what it's like to be chronically ill.
I just wanted to give you a small token of my appreciation and let you know how much I value and respect you. And had you not honored your true path, I and others would not be the beneficiaries of your incredible knowledge combined with your compassionate spirit. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
