Dr. Puttermen is simply the best. My Blepharoplasty results were nothing short of amazing. He is a man of few words and does not feel the need to "Sell" his procedure. Why? He doesn’t have to. His work is impeccable and I cannot say enough about his amazing work.
Dr. Putterman was excellent to work with. As an African American I was concerned about scarring but Doctor assured me that I would be very happy with the surgery. So far, almost four months, since the procedure, I am very pleased. He is timely, professional, and caused me very little discomfort. Prior to surgery he educated me on what to expect, how long healing would take, what items/prescriptions I would need and what follow-up I needed to do. All as gone just as he told me it would. His office staff is kind, polite and equally as easy to work with. Doctor has a "fellow" working with him who it appears will be another excellent physician. I highly recommend Dr. Putterman for eyelid reconstructive surgery.
I am an 85-year-old male who approached Dr. Putterman in early December 2013 because badly drooping eyelids made vision and reading very difficult. Dr. Putterman performed eyelid surgery in December with complete success. Everyone in the office was pleasant and professional. I cannot recommend him more strongly. Edwin S Mills.
I had a tumor/cyst removed from my upper eyelid that invloved removing part of my eyelid and eyelashes. I was very apprehensive about how it would heal, and the end result. Dr. Putterman was fantastic!!! You cannot tell at all where the tumor was. My eyelashes have grown back seamlessly...I couldn't be happier. The day of the surgery he personally called me at home to see how I was doing. I am thrilled with the results and Dr. Putterman's expertise!!! Thank you!!
I had my bottom eyelids raised to correct a dry eye problem. Dr. Putterman did the procedure twice and both times it didn't work. Once the swelling went down and the stitches were taken out the eyelids didn't stay up in the proper position. I complained many times and one of his girls in the office said I should be glad I'm not blind. I found out later he used a outdated method. I wrote Dr. Putterman a letter of complaint and asked for a partial refund. He didn't care and told me to see a dry eye specialist. Now why didn't he send me to a dry eye specialist in the first place? They did do a good job taking my money though. If you're seeing him about bottom eyelids then I suggest you think twice.
I feel very blessed and thankful that I have come to know Dr. Putterman and his wonderful staff; all excellent at what they do. Everyone is always kind and so helpful. I have had several eye surgeries and all have been very successful. The outcome has given me back my life, my confidence. Dr. Putterman's knowledge and skill is remarkable; very professional, yet he is so kind and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Putterman, his office, and his staff. I am thankful to have this opportunity to let others know what a great doctor and surgeon he is.
I found Dr.Putterman and his staff to be the most helpfull and nicest. I would recomend any one to see Dr.Putterman for their needs. Dr.Putterman is the best doctor in the Chicago are and took great care of me. His office staff was very supportive and made sure that all my appointmens and surgical needs were met.. His office manager Vicki took care of all my Insurance approvels and checked on me before and after surgery.
I had my eye repaired by Dr. Putterman on December 4, 2012. Dr. Putterman explained in detail how things would proceed and how a very complicated procedure would turn out. 10 days later I began to see how successful this was was and after 6 weeks the healing process was complete. My family who saw me during this time could not believe how successful it all turned out. I couldn't be happier with the repair that Dr. Putterman made; what could be more valuable than your eyesight. Thank you Dr. Putterman. I would highly recommend Dr. Putterman and his terrific staff to anyone needing eye surgery. Nathan Shapiro
