I feel like it was a total "score" to find Dr. Pulli. I moved here to Rochester from AZ in 2021, and at some point not long after I developed an ear infection, which I'm prone to. Being accustomed to the battle for good medical help where I came from I expected the worst. I couldn't believe it when not only was I able to book an appointment to see Dr. Pulli in just a week or two (vs a month or two where I came from) AND, as I learned at my appointment, that he's a super competent, professional, and likeable guy. I'm moving back to AZ this summer (2023), and I'll certainly miss having him as my ENT. I don't look forward to trying to find a replacement [...]

Dr. Pulli asked lots of questions to understand my concerns, thoroughly explained what he was going to do during the examination, provided suggestions for what to do, and encouraged me to contact him if there was a recurrence of the problem.

I have recommended Ron Pulli MD to several of my family and friends.

Nov 18, 2022


I consider Dr. Pulli a great find as a healthcare provider. In the past 10 or 15 years I've had a number of doctors who seem overworked, distracted and generally checked out. My visits with them were disappointing. In that regard Dr Pulli seems like something of a throwback to a simpler time when doctors were better treated by society and vice versa. He's sharp and good humored and thorough.

Nov 17, 2022


I will definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Oct 21, 2022


Already have recommended Dr Pulli

This is my first visit with Dr. Pulli. I was more than pleased with his professionalism and bed side manner. Not knowing what to expect during my fist meeting I was immediately put at ease by his mannerism. I left the office very pleased that my concerns will be taken care of professionally.
