Patient Testimonial

Explore Our Patients' Experiences

"A number of years ago I first visited Dr Punja to arrange for a brow and eyelid surgery. I was very anxious to have both surgeries as quickly as possible. After full consultations Dr Punja strongly recommended I postpone the surgeries pending resolution of other health issues. I was crushed but I listened to Dr Punja. It was the best decision I ever made. He was right. Fast forward three years and I was now getting my brow and eyelid surgery. Dr Punja was great about explaining all of the risks and we had a clear plan for the surgery and contingencies. When I woke from the surgery I was a little swollen but I could already see the positive results. During the surgery Dr Punja decided to not perform one of the procedures, which we discussed as a possibility. Again, he was right! It was another excellent decision.

I can't explain how grateful I am to Dr Punja for putting my health and appearance first. The follow up care I received was amazing too! I have to say I really felt like a VIP the entire time.

Consistently Dr Punja has only made decisions in my best interest and not simply approached my care as a profit enterprise. As a professional accountant I'm acutely aware of the profit component of business and can be detail oriented in my critic of work performed. I have to say the surgeries and care were simply flawless. I'm so grateful to have had a surgeon who's focus was on a positive outcome and whose skill produced such amazing results."
