Dr. Putnam took his time to listen to my health concerns. He has a great personality, and clearly cares a great deal about the well being of his patients. I’m thankful that I was able to see him and am confident that his suggestions will help me get back on track. His assistant was also incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Putnam to anyone who is looking to for a psychiatric evaluation or a second opinion. He is very good at what he does!

Dr. Putnam has a great bedside manner that helps put nervous patients at ease. I was very apprehensive about following my doc’s recommendation to see a psychiatrist, but after a few minutes with Dr. Putnam I was more open to the prospect of reaching out to a psychiatrist for treatment. He takes his time, listens, and explains treatment options so you leave feeling like someone is helping you on the right path. Highly recommended!

Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Putnam! Informative, caring, patient, comprehensive, and AVAILABLE. His assistant is not very pleasant ... but she gets everything done in a timely manner. Dr. Putnam is very outgoing, sociable, and he actually CARES! Not just a medicine pusher.

Amazing and very knowledgeable doctor!! Dr. Putnam was so kind and attentive to everything I had to say and he did not try and rush through my appointment as I've had happen to me in the past. His front office staff was so friendly too, so that was an added bonus. Great environment all around and I'm very lucky to have found his office!

I've been to three doctors in three states in the last year and Dr. Putnam was the best by FAR! He actually listens, is open to alt. forms of treatment and doesn't push 10000 drugs down your throat. I have found my new long term Psychiatrist for sure.

Dr. Putnam is hands-down the best psychiatrist in the DMV! I have worked with three different psychiatrists in the area prior to seeing him and he is leaps and bounds above the rest - there's simply no comparison. He is incredibly warm and friendly with a fantastic bedside manner - very easy to talk with. He made excellent professional recommendations for my treatment and made sure to explain them thoroughly to ensure I was comfortable with them. Also, the woman at the front desk (I believe her name is Constance) is equally warm, welcoming, and helpful. I am so glad I found them - I'll never see anyone else if I can help it!

I didn't feel like he listened to me. I was upfront since the beginning of the session that I was looking for a second opinion, and he seemed to even be judging my current treatment. Which OK, he had different thoughts, that's why I went, but again he just wouldn't seemed to really listen to what I had to say. After that he said he would send a note to my current Psychiatrist by the end of the week with his thoughts and copy me. It's been now 2 weeks since my appointment and no notes. My doctor called them, they said they didn't have them and he was busy. The next day I called, and the super rude front desk lady said, "He's not here, the paperwork is on your desk, you need to stop calling". So yeah, overall a terrible experience.

I had been looking for a new pyschiatrist since moving to the area and haven't found anyone who seemed to be a good fit, but as soon as I met this Dr I knew he would be my continuing care physician for mental health. His advice has been very helpful, we've been working hard together to switch out some of my more addictive and dangerous medications to safer ones that work just as well. He was even willing to do testing to figure out why some of my medications were impacting my life the way they were and has been very helpful. He explains everything to his patients so they know exactly what the treatment is and what to expect. He is very helpful and I am happy to be a patient of his. The only issue I have is that when I call, I've never actually reached someone over the phone when I call for an appointment or refill. I have to leave a message and wait for a call back. It's a little frustrating but they're also a very busy office, so it's understandable. They pay full attention to you while you're in the office, so the phone issue is something to note for those who like immediate pick-up of the phone at a doctor's office, but everything else is fantastic!

Dr. Putnam is warm, approachable and knowledgeable. When I moved to the DC area, I looked for a doctor I knew I could go right to without jumping through too many hoops, and who also accepted my insurance. I've been very happy with Dr. Putnam and he's great at assessing where you're at and providing suggestions or treatment according to present needs or questions.
