Dr.Puwanant has always provided me with thoughtful, supportive care and allows me to participate in decision making regarding my long term illness. Very approachable and knowledgeable.

March 26, 2018

I really appreciated Dr. Puwant. She spent a lot of time with me and seemed very interested in the history of MMD in my family. She had not heard of scarring of the heart (back of the heart) and that is still a bit of a concern for me because it is a part of MMD and also is prevalent in family members who have MMD. Other than that she seems to understand Myotonic MD, which I am grateful for. She was very easy to talk to and answered all my questions.
