January 29, 2017

Excellent care from staff, nurses, and Dr. Pulgiano. Thanks

January 13, 2017

The doctor only spent six-seven minutes with me.

January 09, 2017

The MA was wonderful very nice and friendly! Dr. Pulgiano is the obsolute opposite from the MA, the visit with him felt very rushed! He showed no concern for my problem and was very short and unfriendly. He acted very put out in the visit!

January 08, 2017

Doctor Angelo Pulgiano is an excellent doctor. I completely trust Dr Pulgiano assessment and advice.

January 06, 2017

I have recommended Dr. Pulgiano to many people, he is Smart, listens well, and a fantastic Dr.

December 19, 2016

This doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me. Basically came in the room, said here's your meds then left. He didn't even know what one of the meds my old doctor had me on was. He had to google search it. Then said as he was leaving " I hope your insurance pays for everything!" Very unprofessional. As I was a new patient I wish he would have taken the time to go over my p/f history. Definitly needs to work on his bedside manner!

December 19, 2016

Dr. Pugliano is very thorough. He is not one to waste times and shoot the breeze. He gets down to business and stays focused on the problem at hand. He is very professional and knowledgeable!

December 16, 2016

The Dr seemed very busy and did not have good beside manner. He walked in, hardly assessed me, and diagnosed me. He was very brief and vague and did not explain anything to me. I'm still not even sure if his diagnosis was correct. Maybe had he sat down with me and explained to me why he was giving me that diagnosis, and help me learn how to correct it, I would feel better about the visit. Instead he told me to come back and see another depart for treatment. No explanation as to why. I am very busy, and would like to know how effective the treatment he recommend is, and if I could do therapy on my own. I will not be going back to him in the future.

December 13, 2016


December 13, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano is the best doctor I have ever gone to. Very understanding and works with me on my treatments.

December 12, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano seemed to be a very knowledgeable doctor, however the two times I've seen him he rushes in, simply addresses a few things the nurses have told him, quickly rattles off what he's prescribing and he's back out of the room. Fortunately, both times I had great nurses willing to answer additional questions pertinent to procedures and prescriptions.

December 12, 2016

He was good

December 06, 2016

Wasn't willing to prescribe medicine I've been on for a long time. My previous doctor had no problem... Now I am told to schedule a psychiatric appointment to get my meds filled from now on.

December 06, 2016

He was very short, he made some rude comments concerning my weight.

November 30, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano is always great about explaining his plan of care. I never have any doubts or questions about what's going to happen because he is very clear about what the current and next steps are.

November 26, 2016


November 21, 2016

Dr. P is great. He is no nonsense but has great care for his patients.

November 21, 2016

I have never been seen by a physician that communicates so poorly. I left my visit wondering "what just happened?". More questions now than I had prior to the visit. Seemed like the physician could not get out of the exam room fast enough. No formal introduction when he entered the exam room. Medical assistant had to ask him to return to the room for something he did not clarify initially. I am definitely going to keep looking for a primary care physician. Doctor Pulgiano will not be involved in my healthcare going forward.

November 18, 2016

While I appreciate that he was seeing me for a rash (since I couldn't get in to the dermatologist), he didn't seem to know what it was. He prescribed a steroid cream, but as I type, doesn't seem to be working. I am waiting for my dermatology appointment.

November 13, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano spent about 2.5 minutes in the room with me and when I asked him a question as he was leaving the room he didn't look back and didn't answer.

November 13, 2016

the care provider spent a total of 3 minutes in the room with me. I wish I could say that I am exaggerating, but I'm not. a third of that time was spent typing on the computer. I felt like I was being an inconvenience to him by showing up and giving him something to do. He was rushed, withdrawn, and simply going through the motions.

November 12, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Pulgiano, he was great and gave me all the options I needed to successfully treat my sore throat/jaw soreness

November 09, 2016

thank you

November 07, 2016

Mostly impressed with the nurse. She was really fantastic and loves her job.

November 06, 2016

It felt as if he was rushing the appointment

November 04, 2016

There was a nurse practitioner student and instructor that worked me up prior to the md coming into the room. My concerns and questions were addressed at this time. I have had major brain surgery since the last time since I visited with this Dr. Virtually an entire lobe of my brain was removed. When the md came into the room he was hurried and distracted. While this was just a yearly physical, there was not any mention of the brain surgery or my overall condition regarding this issue. He did address my questions and needs that haven't been addressed by neurology specialists. While other providers were also present at the appointment, I think Dr Pulgiano as my primary provider should slow down just a little and spend an extra few minutes to absorb the overall condition of his patient.

October 29, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano is always great. I appreciate that how to always willing the teach me new things.

October 22, 2016

I came in on a follow for testosterone level. I thought it would have been more meaningful if they did a blood draw prior to the appointment so he could see the results rather than after he saw me. I don't know how he could determine my progress without the lab results. They sent me to the lab for blood after the appointment and the lab said I should come back in the morning because they get a better result than in the late afternoon. They did find out that the gel costs about 10X more than the injections which was good. I suppose now I will need to look up my results or see if he has commented on them. I just think if this was all done in advance of the appointment it would have been more productive.

October 04, 2016

I think everyone should come here especially if you want to get treated like you're the only person there. staff is AMAZING

September 24, 2016

my appointment was awesome, but follow up has been poor. I took a ton of tests but nobody called to follow up and my messages on my chart seem to be ignored. discouraging...I liked this doctor but need somebody who will follow through or give next steps.

September 20, 2016

He walked into the room and said "lets put you on this new drug you have never tried before". He didn't ask any questions and didn't introduce himself, just straight to putting me on a prescription. He was only in the room maybe a minute and a half and walked out. If the MA hadn't explained the drug to me somewhat, I probably would not have filled the prescription at all and just gone to see another doctor to see if he was giving me the correct diagnosis.

September 18, 2016

I try to understand how busy doctors are but that doesn't justify to be treated as another item. It looks like we the patients are just an additional number that will fulfill an statistic. Where are the human values? we deserve better than that, don't we?

September 16, 2016

very good experience

September 12, 2016

excellent Dr. and MA

September 04, 2016

I have appreciated the way my concerns have been answered, I also appreciate receiving the information to take home with me to review.

August 29, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano put in extra effort to help look into my condition and improve my treatment, and I felt he went above and beyond what I expect from a doctor. I will definitely recommend him to others.

August 23, 2016

I still have the same pain in my knee, I got some tests done and that is all. After 5 days nobody contacted me for a follow up to see if I am doing better. I didn't get any treatment at all.

August 23, 2016

He is a fantastic dr. I don't think I have ever been to a more thorough and concerned dr.

August 19, 2016

I wont go to anyone else anymore. He is so incredibly caring, knowledgeable, and funny! I always trust what he is telling me and I know that I will always get the best care through him. Thanks for being the BEST Dr.P!

August 13, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Dr. A Pugliano. I felt that he really listened to me, and wanted to help me with my back problems. I wish I could see this Doctor Pugliano every time I had a medical issue.

August 06, 2016

The doctor was so kind and took excellent care of me and the ma also

August 02, 2016

Doctor gave no concern about the issue that brought me in. It's out of his area of specialty but he could have had more concern about referring me to someone who could help me.

August 01, 2016

I had come in because I needed to before getting a refill on my medication approved. He took care of that after I told him they said I had to come in for a refill approval. I had other concerns that had been recorded by the MA and he did not even discuss them with me. One that he did he told me it was up to me if I wanted to make an appointment with another doctor but he saw no need for me to do so. The others concerns he did not address; EVEN THOUGH I BROUGHT THEM UP BECAUSE HE DID NOT BEFORE HE STARTED TO LEAVE. And he said NOTHING ABOUT A NEXT VISIT. When I first started with him he would always tell me when to come back in. Then I had to start asking him when to come back. The other day after waiting in the waiting area for 45 minutes and in the exam room for 15 minutes and him spending 5 minutes I was MORE THEN EXTREMELY UPSET. And after the way that I was treated and his not answering my questions and NOT even BARELY giving ME the Time of Day; and TREATING ME AS IF I WERE A FLY ON THE WALL OR A SIDE OF BEEF to be BRUSHED ASIDE my confidence in him is NIL. If I had someone else to go to I Would Highly Consider it. But I DON"T so I guess I'm STUCK Where I'm at.

July 25, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano cares so much, and is so proactive. I respect him so much!

July 18, 2016

I am going to swiitch to tour clinic. I feel that you provide a care that make me trust you with my health issues.

July 11, 2016

When I first came to see Dr. Pulgiano I liked him and had a lot of confidence in him. Lately my confidence decreases with each visit. He and the MA are not listening to me. I know my body and what goes on then anybody else. I live in my body and have for 54 years. Believe me when I tell you what goes on with my body. In some ways I know just as much or more about my body and what goes on then anybody else on the planet. Another BIG Decision was first made without me and I am still upset about it.

July 11, 2016

I really liked Dr. Pulgiano.

July 04, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano is always willing to teach me about my medical concerns. He offered me a tiered pain control plan that allowed me to be the one that determined which pain medications to use based on my pain level.

June 27, 2016

I came in for a yearly physical. I would hope that Doctor's would give advice on how to be more healthy. And to be honest, tell me when I'm not taking care of myself and need to be more healthy. Giving some tips and suggestions would help. Maybe the Doctor normally does this, but you guys were so far behind he didn't take the time.

June 25, 2016

I call Thursday 6/22 with a concern and its Saturday 6/25 and still haven't heard back from anyone

June 19, 2016

He needs to be more charismatic and less concerned about his reputation.

June 19, 2016

Explained to me at appropriate level of detail the preventative health measures that I should be getting.

June 17, 2016

which more time was allowed . always feel rushed

June 08, 2016

first time I have seen this doctor. Impressed how much time he spent with me and ease of which I could be scheduled for needed tests.

June 06, 2016

This appointment the care provider seemed much more concerned about what is going on with me and had me do blood test and a scheduled MRI. I felt more confident about this Dr then I did the first time I saw him and I felt he seemed more concerned in wanting to help figure out what is going on with me...However he didnt say anything about a follow up appointment or if one is needed

June 05, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano was caring and very personable. We felt liked he truly cared.

May 29, 2016

very pleased with the care I received

May 24, 2016

I felt like he was talking down to me. He was short with me and made comments that I didn't think he should have.

May 21, 2016

I just didn't feel that my concerns were being addressed adequately.

May 17, 2016

Very pleased with my Dr. and his staff.

May 09, 2016

He belittled me when I asked a question about something that I went to Urgent Care. He did not like what had been done. I felt he was putting the blame on me when I had just done what I was told. Then he brought up something else he wanted to do. I came home and still had questions and have yet to receive a return phone call from the right person. it really ticks me off to say it in a nice way.

May 09, 2016

this care provider was ok but I did not feel comfortable bringing up how I was feeling about several other issues. very blunt and to the point and would cut you off mid sentence. I don't know that I would refer because I don't know that I will go back to this doctor.

May 06, 2016

sometimes I have thougts and think that I had communication my problem!

May 05, 2016

Dr. Pulgiano is so professional and so caring, yet able to be completely frank without being offensive. I love it.

April 27, 2016

I think he is a good doctor but haven't felt he understands my needs as well as I would like.

April 25, 2016

I have already recommended Dr Pugliano to others. I fully understood the prescribed solution, but only partially understood the diagnosis. That I started feeling better is what mattered most tof me.

April 25, 2016

The doctor was the best I had ever been to. He cared about my problems, and wanted to help me.

April 22, 2016

Very professional and calming appointment. A lot of questions and each one answered to my satisfaction. I have a lot of faith and trust in my doctors suggestions and information. THANKS DR. PULGIANO

April 08, 2016

I like Dr. Pugliano, but he and his team really dropped the ball on my last visit with their inability to manage their time and interface with waiting patients.

April 05, 2016

Dr Pulgiano is excellent in all areas, and very caring.

April 04, 2016

I always have good care and attention

February 25, 2016

Generally good. I know physicians are rushed. Just felt a lot of irritation from him.

February 24, 2016

Excellent! His explanations were very clear and he seemed very interested in my health. My visit was prompted by my change in insurance and I needed a refill on a monthly prescription. In advance I asked to have him order blood work so he could have some information to look at during our visit. He granted my request and it made for a very productive visit.

February 22, 2016

I went in for my yearly physical and all he did was listen to me breathe, renew my prescription, and ask if I had any concerns. How is that a physical. Also brought in a med student without asking if it's okay and he didn't introduce her. She could tell I was wondering who she was so she introduced herself. It was very uncomfortable. Felt like a useless visit.

February 22, 2016

I had concerns about seeing this care provider after my last visit where he did not show any concern about my condition. This time, however, was different. It seems like the doctor was prepared, kind, willing to answer all my questions and took time to talk to me. I may not change the care provider just yet after all.

February 19, 2016

Appt was set up with pharmacy to discuss medications

February 19, 2016

As we are at an end of life time and there are many things to address our care provider Dr Pullgiano was very proactive in making sure all of the questions about DURAND Hospice and pain control etc were addressed in a way that no one else had addressed. It was a breath of.fresh air to have this frank discussion. The more we come to see him the more our confidence is built and I feel assured of the care we receive. Thank you

February 15, 2016

Dr. P took the time to address extra concerns of mine during the visit. He thoroughly checked out symptoms and said it was normal and not to come for another appt. He is an excellent clinician.

February 10, 2016

Overall the Doctor seemed to know his stuff. As this was my first visit with him I do not have much good or bad to say about him. He answered what few questions I had and took care of my problem. I will be returning for a follow up visit.

January 30, 2016

I have had previous appointments that didn't seem to as well. I really felt heard this time and left with some solutions,

January 13, 2016

He made me feel like it was silly of me to be at the doctor. I had previously called and spoken with a nurse and she informed me that I needed to get in that day to be seen, she seemed very concerned. My doctor, however, was snide and made the comment, "Welcome to Utah," referring to my asthmatic bronchitis. He had know knowledge of my history and the fact that I've lived in Utah all but 6 months of my life. I just felt very dismissed and he made it clear that I was a waste of his time.

January 12, 2016

All is good

November 18, 2015

The University staff are all friendly, caring and helpful. Answers are given with explanations easy to understand.

November 10, 2015

Again, was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Pulgiano and his assistant. Never had a better first visit to a medical facility.

November 08, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is very direct and communicates clearly. He answers questions thoughtfully, yet succinctly.

November 02, 2015

I did not feel that the physician addressed my concerns. I received a call indicating the doctor asked the staff to call me about some pathology reports. When he came in the room he acted as if it was a routine follow up. He said nothing about the report when he came into the room. I finally had to ask him when he was getting ready to leave the room. In addition I had to ask him when I should come back. He is usually more thorough and takes time to explain things and answer my questions. He just seemed to be in a rush. That may be because you tell your doctors the only have so much time with a patient which makes it impossible for the physicians to do their job without rushing. This is something you as the U of U Hospital and Clinics need to change beginning with hospital administration.

October 28, 2015

I never feel rushed. He always makes sure "?i understand what he is thinking and what my thoughts are. i like that he always refers back to my other medical notes by other Doctors. Assures me that we are all on the same page.

October 28, 2015

He came highly recommended

October 26, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano was very knowledgeable and caring during my visit.

October 24, 2015

These opinions are from my visit with Dr. Polgiano. He was rude and showed no concern for my problem. He repeatedly told me I was fine and wondered why I thought it necessary to receive an MRI and that I clearly wasn't in need of it. He made me feel very dumb for even being there, when I clearly thought I should be. He is not my primary care doctor, I will never go to him or ever refer him to anyone, he was very rude. I intend to follow up with my primary care doctor, Dr. Kundra and report this to her as well. Thank you.

October 22, 2015

This provider had many openings that day when I called to get an appointment but c/o being busy. With me for maybe 5 minutes before being called out of the room. Gone 15 minutes, back prescribed medication after brief apology he left.

October 15, 2015

I love how he spent adequate time with me to ensure he thoroughly understood the issue so I didn't need to be bounced around to another doctor. He scheduled appropriate tests and made sure I understood why we were doing each test.

October 13, 2015

The actual visit with the Dr. was really fast probably no more than 4 or 5 minutes; but, with that, there really wasn't anything wrong that I was going in to be seen for, it was just for some vaccinations and a checkup. In all fairness I do have the impression that if it was a more specific medical issue or I was actually sick or something the interaction would have been more in depth. All my needs were met and the RN was great.

October 11, 2015

Dr Pulgiano is great. He listens to my concerns and takes them seriously while earnestly trying to find the best solution. I trust his judgement

October 09, 2015

I love Dr Pulgiano-he always remembers everything about me, takes my concerns seriously and listens to my ideas on the direction I want my care to go-

September 19, 2015

I got the vibe that I was being thought of as a hypocondriac for coming in with just a sore throat so soon. 15 days later I am still coughing up a storm and feel like crap with laryngitis that comes and goes (which as a teacher is miserable). Since coming in the day the illness started was too soon, I now keep asking myself, am I sick enough now to get some medicine or am I still just being overly sensitive? I was at the doctor's office last year at the same time for the same thing and got the same treatment. I finally recovered in January after multiple visits - sore throat turned to cough, but it was just viral so I had to wait until it turned to bronchitis and it took multiple medicine cycles to get it resolved. Pretty miserable!! Loving doing it again (yes, that is sarcasm!!!)

September 17, 2015

best doctor I've ever seen.

September 12, 2015

Dr. seemed busy and in a bit of a rush, but was polite and thorough.

August 31, 2015

Very knowledgeable and competent

August 25, 2015

i'd like to know about the sleep apnia treatments and when they would begin. I haven't heard how big a problem I may have.

August 22, 2015

Tyson and Tracy were very caring and took every step to ensure I was comfortable and getting the treatment I needed. I appreciated how they were proactive in taking labs so that Dr. Pulgiano had the baseline to start from.

August 21, 2015

I will be bringing in my two sons to become patients of Dr. Pugliano.

August 20, 2015

dr. Pulgiano is very knowledgeable and kind however I feel he needs to work on contacting the patient after the care with the lab test and the results of the visit

August 20, 2015

Dr. Angelo Pulgiano has been excellent in past experiences. I have no issues with him. It was a unexpected appt and I found out he had students with him that day, so I'm sure that he was rushed, which made our appt somewhat abrupt. Everyone has those days!

August 02, 2015

Dr. had made up his mind what the problem was before he walked in the room.

July 27, 2015

The care provider did not seem to take me seriously.. He acted annoyed by being in the room. Almost seemed as if I was wasting his time.

July 24, 2015


July 11, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is very concerned about getting me the right medications and was willing to make sure that I am getting the best results. I appreciate that very much.

July 07, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is outstanding!

July 06, 2015

Very impressed!

July 06, 2015

the dr. was serioulsy in with me for under 5 min. He wrote a prescription and left. he billed me for a "new appointment" but didnt ask me a single question except "what color is your mucus" (after he listened to my chest). this was in NO WAY what i would consider a first time consultation. I really feel that he took my money and left me unacceptable service

June 21, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is a great provider, I will not see anyone else!

June 16, 2015

I love having Dr. Pulgiano as my primary care physician, He listens, provides alternative treatments and doesn't sugar coat things... He is an asset to the University.

June 15, 2015

I just didn't have much interaction with the doctor and don't feel I could give a fair assessment

June 11, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is the best physician. He is always friendly and listens to my concerns.

June 10, 2015

dr. Pulgiano is so amazing. I love his thoroughness and his no nonsense approach. he spends quality time with me and never gives me the brush off.

June 10, 2015

unfamiliar with this physician on this visit. as stated previously this is not my primary care physician and my symptoms were more challenging. I felt as though he found the closest thing it could be, gave me an antibiotic and sent me on my way. I've always been very pleased with my primary physician and my children's as well. this was on odd occasion for me.

June 10, 2015

Dr. P is very knowledgeable in finding underlying causes and providing treatment. He loves helping people get better! I like that. He is from NY and therefore talks fast and is alittle brisk in his mannerisms. I would have liked alittle slower and more personal connection, like more eye contact or caring words. I think people in this state are used to this more. However, I would not want another Dr. because he does really care and he is an excellent clinician.

June 10, 2015

Clear , concise , and honest with his comments as what he can or cannot do within his limits of expertise and or referrals .All of this is rare in the medical field as most are not open with their viewpoints or willing to listen not just hear to what their patients are saying . All of this is important to me !

May 27, 2015

Dr Pulgiano was absolutely wonderful. He is a great provider and always knows what to do to fix my health in the quickest way possible. I send everyone I know to him because I know that they will be in great hands. Thank you Dr Pulgiano!!

May 25, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano was very thorough and presented my options in a way that I felt like I was understood, and also in control of my medical care. He addressed my concerns and helped allay my fears.

May 20, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano was fabulous. He was efficient and to the point, which is exactly what I needed and wanted.

May 19, 2015

Dr Pulgiano is an amazing physician and goes above and beyond for his patients! I would highly recommend this provider! Thank you!!!

May 02, 2015

I was really ill and would have liked a little more compassion.

April 26, 2015

he did not listen to me and I felt like he couldn't wait to get out of the room. he was probably with me for 5 minutes total.

April 15, 2015

The Care provider recommended pills without taking appropriate tests.

April 13, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is a careful and thoughtful physician. He really appears to care a lot about his patients understanding of any concerns.

April 06, 2015

He listens to my concerns and checked out my leg and therefore my blood clots were found. Thanks! The follow up has been good!

April 04, 2015

I am very happy with my visit. I wasn't promised magic pills and a follow visit was scheduled before I left the exam room. I can communicate with him in person at my next visit, not by email to a medical assistant. I like his personal touch.

April 03, 2015

The Dr appeared distant and pre occupied to the point i asked if i had pissed him off in some way. That passed later on

March 11, 2015

Dr Pulgiano makes sure I understand what he's saying before he leaves, he listens well to my concerns and I like him.

March 07, 2015

I really appreciate Dr. Pulgiano's constant efforts to improve my health. I have quite a few health issues and keeping everything in working order is difficult, but he has such a positive attitude that I go away feeling like I can improve and have better health in the future with his help.

March 04, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano and his nurse/assistant are wonderful and right on! Who could ask for more?

February 27, 2015

Really seemed like they cared about my concerns/health.

February 23, 2015

Very knowledgeable and frindly

February 19, 2015

Dr Pulgiano is the best provider I have ever been to. He always takes time to sit down and explain everything that is going on, and always know what to do for me. I know that he cares about me and never messes around when it comes to my health.

February 16, 2015

already recommened

February 14, 2015

Dr. P. was very good at listening to all my symptoms and making notes. I felt like I was the only patient he had, he was very patient and kind to me.

February 03, 2015

A woman came in the room with this care provider and no one explained to me why. I felt uncomfortable. also the care provider seemed rushed because there was actually "nothing" wrong with me, just the fact I had a virus.

February 01, 2015


January 27, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano is excellent!

January 17, 2015

I liked that he allowed me to try and lower my cholesterol by diet even though he did suggest a pill.

January 15, 2015

Dr. Pulgiano rocks! I love his no nonsense approach and his bedside manner. He is very considerate, caring as well as knowledgeable. I always feel like I'm in excellent hands when I am treated by him.

January 12, 2015

I fell very fortunate to have the care I ALWAYS receive

January 11, 2015

I think he understood that I am reasonably well-informed about medicine in general and my condition in particular. THAT SAID, I wish he'd paid closer attention to the info I provided him (orally, and in writing) about my condition. I can understand that of course he knows he's better informed about my condition than I am; still, I did some research and came in with some good data and info, which I think he pretty much dismissed. In one sense his dismissal of it is appropriate; OTOH, I did bring him some credible info.

January 07, 2015

Very good experience.

December 15, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is the best Internist that I have ever seen. I like the patience he demonstrates explaining conditions and I love how he is genuinely concerned with making me feel well as soon as possible.

December 11, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is by far the best Primary Care Physician I have ever had in my life.

December 04, 2014

There have been several issues going on presently. some of it has been very confusing and upsetting. He spent extra time to make sure I understood because it was a matter of life and death. This was extremely important to me.

November 25, 2014

The doctor listened to me and my concerns to get an antibiodic to get over this infection. I appreciate his listening to me since I know my body very well and knew I had done everything to get well and needed the antibiodics.

November 24, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is great! He always listens to my concerns and has my health as his top priority. I would recommend him to anyone!

November 12, 2014

Dr and PA excellent

October 19, 2014

Angelo provided me with adequate time to express my concerns. He was very knowledgable and reassuring with any questions I had. He insisted on calling me personally to discuss lab work that was drawn and address any questions I had at that time. I would absolutely reccomend Angelo Pulgiano.

September 26, 2014

the doctor was very courteous and called me at home.I've never had a doctor call me at home before I was happy

September 22, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is my primary care physician. He has a no-nonsense bedside manner, which i appreciate greatly. I feel the medications he prescribes are exactly what I need. I don't get bombarded with a bunch of Rx that may or may not be useful. He listens to my concerns and makes an educated decision on my course of treatment.

September 12, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano has never had a patient with eye cancer before, but was very compassionate and concerned and wanted to know everything we know.

August 28, 2014


August 09, 2014

To be honest every time I see Dr. Pulgiano I feel rushed and treated like a number. I keep saying to myself that I want to see someone else but he's listed as my primary care doctor so I feel a sense of obligation every time I schedule an appt since the front desk asks if that's who I want to see. After this visit though I felt rushed (again) and I realized he didn't really know me or my history. He just looks at things on the computer then click click click he gives me generic advice and prints out good sleep habits (again) and moves on. At the end of the visit he asked if I had any questions but I felt like he didn't care anyway so I just said no. Next appointment I need to make I'm going to request a new physician.

July 24, 2014

Dr P. Is the best doctor I have ever had. His attention to detail, compassion and medical knowledge is impeccable. He answers my questions and makes sure that I have a complete understanding of everything that was reviewed during my visits. His staff is friendly and efficient. I am grateful that the University of Utah has Dr P in their corner.

July 24, 2014

He is not a easy doctor he treated me like I was very dumb and didn't know what I was talking about and didn't not listen to what I was saying I will not go back to him again

July 19, 2014

Very good

July 18, 2014

I did not have as good a visit as I did my first. I felt my concerns and extreme worry about my leg were not addressed.

July 14, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is a great doctor.

June 27, 2014

I LOVE Dr. Pulgiano! He is the best PCP I have ever had-he knows who I am and remembers little things about me from my last visit. He is funny and very concerned about me-he helps coordinate care and get answers from other doctors when I can't. To the U of U, do not let this man go anywhere else!

June 23, 2014

I went in for a very painful sore throat. The doctor said by looking at it I didn't have strep but it was very red. I did what he told me to do but the pain persisted for 4 or 5 more days. and I went out town with a large number of family members and 4 ended up getting strep in the week.

June 22, 2014

Did not seem to show concern for what I had to say or how I was feeling. I felt very rushed thru the exam. It felt like he had his mind made up about what he was going to say to me and did not hear what I was tying to convey to him. I will not see this physician again nor my husband.

June 13, 2014

seems ready to run off to his next task seems smart, but could be more personable

June 12, 2014

I was very pleased with all persons involved

June 07, 2014

I just always feel awkward when the doctor is typing into the computer but just leaves me sitting there awkwardly waiting. maybe he could be telling you what he's typing Ina's he goes. This just always makes it feel less personal.

June 02, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano was great. I was impressed that both he and his assistant took the time to review my chart and address not only my current concerns but also past ones to make sure all is going well.

May 24, 2014

the Dr. war very tired and yawning in front of me only focus in the computer, very bad experience. I'll be change of provider ..

May 16, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano and his staff (along with the entire staff at the U from appointments to pharmacy) just rock! They always treat me like they care about me even if they see me 4 times a month. I always feel like I am in great hands.

April 27, 2014

Pulgiano is the best!

April 21, 2014

I went in for a physical, and I don't think I got a complete physical by the physician. I have be very good about getting a physical every year, and I don't think the physician took enough time to make sure that everything was ok with my health.

April 17, 2014

Perhaps Dr. P was a little behind schedule with his appointments. He seemed to be irritated with the number of questions I had on my list.

April 16, 2014

I left very happy and confident I had chosen a great doctor.

April 12, 2014

He has always gone beyond my expectations.

April 04, 2014


April 04, 2014


March 17, 2014

Excellent experience.

March 15, 2014

Great! I was late, and he was short on time, but took time to answer my questions.

March 13, 2014

The only problem I had was the prescription that the doc gave ended up being really expensive. I wish he would have talked to me about that at the time. I called his office to see if there was another option and luckily there was. They fixed it quickly with the pharmacy.

March 10, 2014

Always very kind and informative.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is incredible with his explanations and his concern always feels genuine.

February 19, 2014

I appreciate the time Dr. Pulgiano takes with me when I have multiple concerns or remember items at the last minute.

February 16, 2014

won't see him again, I will go to ER first.

February 14, 2014

I have used Dr Pulgiano twice and like his practice best.

February 11, 2014


January 31, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano was great. He is very thorough and has helped me understand my condition much better than any other doctor.

January 28, 2014

Yeah, I don't see any problems with it.

January 26, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is my favorite. He includes me and doesn't just decide things for me. We work as a team for my care and I recommend him to everyone. :-)

January 21, 2014

I love Dr. Pulgiano and his the care he and his staff provide. I recommend him regularly.

January 21, 2014

I've been looking for a primary care Dr for 2 years. I've been seen by 2 other physicians @ the SJ clinic and didn't feel they were a good fit for me. I am SO glad I found Dr. Pulgiano. I have confidence in him and feel he's including me in my health care plan.

December 30, 2013

Everything was good that day, but it's the 4th day now and I still haven't received my results. I was told Friday that I would have them Saturday. It's Monday now.

December 30, 2013

The doctor was very thorough. I appreciated that.

December 30, 2013

Thay was very good to me

December 28, 2013

Most rewarding experience I've had.

December 16, 2013

Exceptional experience!

December 16, 2013

He such a good caring doctor. He can understand me and my health issues. He tries to work with to manage my meds and my health. I recommend him to all my friends.

December 13, 2013

I couldn't me more pleased with the experience I had with Dr. Pulgiano. I found him to be pleasant, professional, and thorough in his approach. I will definitely refer my friends and family members to his care.

December 12, 2013

During this visit I was sent to IV infusion. While getting my infusion he came over every so often to check on me to see how I was doing. Dr. Pulgiano is a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.

December 11, 2013

I appreciate the care he gives me and the preparation done when referring me to another doctor (xrays). I also appreciate the time given to callme to give me feedback on my labwork and xray results. I was meeting with my rhuematologist when I received the xray results and they were the same in regards to the the nature of my implants and we decided to wait a bit considering they had lasted over 40 years (my non-dominant hand and the first implants that were done) due to my health issues.

December 09, 2013

I went in for a physical. It felt a bit rushed compared to physicals I have received from other healthcare providers who performed more thorough examinations.

December 08, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano was very helpful and took the time to make sure I understood all my health concerns and gave me good advice as to my good health. He was very knowledgeable as to my medical conditions.

December 02, 2013

Very caring

November 18, 2013

I think the world of Dr. Pulgiano!

November 11, 2013

I like Dr. Pulgiano. It is the first physical I've had with him. Would prefer that he do pap smears with the physical.

November 06, 2013

I love Dr. Pulgiano and have sent a few of my co-workers to him and they love him too. He is so smart and really makes you feel like you are in great hands. He is smart and manages to make the time to make sure I know what's going on and ensure that I understand my condition.

October 28, 2013

I really like Dr. Pulgiano. He made me feel very comfortable even though my condition isn't very fun or easy to talk about. He seemed very concerned and I felt like he really wanted to help me get better. I feel good about having him as my doctor.

October 26, 2013

I was recommended this care provider by someone. I'm glad they did.

October 25, 2013

Please treat him well enough so that he will not leave your organization as all of my previous doctors have from the University Health Centers

October 21, 2013

I'm very happy with Dr. P, he is knowledgable and understanding about my condition.

October 21, 2013

I once had a bad experince up in Internal medicine and wasnt going to go back. Dr Pulgiano is very professional and really took an interest in my problem and could tell he was very competant in his practice as a MD.

October 16, 2013

Dr Pulgiano was great! This was my first time seeing him and I was definitely impressed.

September 09, 2013

DR. talks too fast at times, somewhat hard to follow .

August 22, 2013

Doctor is smart but does not listen to patients and seems to make decisions without much patient input.

August 13, 2013

I enjoyed how personable Dr. Polgiano was with me and made me feel like I was doing ok and whatever my problems were, we would find a solution that worked for me. He worked well with the nurse that was assisting and together, they made me feel comfortable and like I was important to them.

August 12, 2013

Excellent care!

August 03, 2013

I think Dr. Pulgiano is qualified and dedicated, but more time should have been used in examing the injuries and proving a description of care precautions and treament options. I found such information from my own research which should have been presented to me at the apointment.

July 29, 2013

Dr. Very rush

July 23, 2013

outstanding patient care

July 13, 2013

To date, my experience with Dr. Angelo Pulgiano has been sterling / top notch. He has a compassionate and caring, yet, no nonsense and to the point demeanor that fits very well with me. Dr. Pulgiano is the reason I continue to use the University of Utah Healthcare system.

July 05, 2013

I will probably make this doctor my primary care based on this visit. He was nice, understanding and seemed to care about my problem. I felt very welcome and comfortable.

July 04, 2013

He seemed rushed. He didn't want to look into the issue the C.F. clinic sent me in for. He addressed The allergy issue but did no blood work for my liver and made me feel as though the issue was my fault.

June 25, 2013

in all fairness to him, i have hearing loss and haven't been able to get aids. i know communicating with me can be irritating. i felt the dr was irritated if i asked him to repeat something i didn't catch the first time. the subject of pain was so absorbing the whole appt. that i didn't have a chance to discuss other problems i am having.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano was great. He has a calm presence but can speak with force to get me to make positive changes to my health. He is just the kind of physician I need.

June 11, 2013

I felt he was rushing through the appt. One of my complaints was ear pain and he didn't even look in my ears.

June 06, 2013

I have made him my primary care Dr. after one visit.

May 29, 2013

he patiently listened to everything I had to say, never interrupted me (even when I rambled) or talked down to me. My symptoms have not completely gone away but he made sure I scheduled a follow up so I'm sure I will be well taken care of.

May 20, 2013

I never feel rushed with Dr. Pulgiano. He listens and is engaged in the conversation. He doesn't "check-out" after I tell him the initial symptom. I appreciate his concern and care when I am being treated by him.

May 14, 2013

it seemed that the doctor was in a big hurry. i had to repeat myself several times and they were not listening to me about my condition.

May 13, 2013

I like Dr. Pulgian very much, he is competent and thorough, always professional and caring. He communicates extremely well.

May 06, 2013

the doctor prescribed me medication for allergies when I told him I knew that my symptoms were not allergies. I feel like he really didn't care what my symptoms were and just assumed they were allergies. he only spent about five minutes with me and that was it. I would not recommend this doctor or see him again. I was very disappointed.

April 22, 2013

He seemed in a hurry but confident.

April 12, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano is very thorough and really does want his patients to feel better.

April 08, 2013

We also saw a medical student who took my health history. We liked his bedside manner much better then Dr. Pulgiano. Dr. Pulgiano seemed like an excellent physician, but he was a little more impatient with us asking about the risk of diabetes a few times.

April 03, 2013

I think he treated me with the wrong drug (gout) used steroids in stead of gout meds. Problem still .

March 11, 2013

Visit was very rushed.

March 11, 2013

Doctor did not remember all my issues

March 07, 2013


March 06, 2013

I have already passed out Dr. Angelo Pulgiano's cards to many in my office that have been looking for a replacement for Doctor Gibson. He is really good and for the first time since Dr. Gibson left I feel like I found a match.

February 25, 2013

Very professional. No nonsense. I liked it. A bit fast though. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and the providers told me very quickly. I was in a state of shock for a bit.

January 28, 2013

I didn't like being perscribed meds without discusion or explaination and being new to the country I needed more detail as I was requesting however little was given and incorrect drugs were perscripbed

January 28, 2013

Dr Pugliano didn't care a bout the symptoms I have. He didn't show any concern. It seems that he just was there because he had to.

January 23, 2013

I have found my new primary care facility.

January 22, 2013

I felt like he was rushed and was rushing me.

January 02, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano spent time explaining things to me and answered all of my questions.

January 01, 2013

Approximately one month ago, disability medicaid sent me a letter and told me I could change to another health plan if I wished but I stayed with Healthy-U because I like my Doctor.

December 18, 2012

just an all around positive professional experience which I have had not had at docotors' offices for many years. It was good to be taken seriously and have my questions considered and not scoffed at.

December 14, 2012

Always a pleasure to deal with the staff in this office.

December 10, 2012

Seriously considering changing my primary care provider to this one.

December 10, 2012

I felt like the appointment was a bit rushed once the doctor came in, but the overall care was excellent.

November 26, 2012

provider was Awsome! he was quick and answered all my questions!

November 19, 2012

I really did like the Provider he was very polite and explained to me in detail the Medications that I was going to be taking and the interactions with my other medications. thanks!

November 05, 2012

He was rude. Quick to make a diagnosis ( one theat was later proved to be wrong). And showed no concern in cgangong a treatment plan prescribed by my doctoer that had been helping me. And leaving me with no alternative tratment at all.

November 05, 2012

I have tried to get our son-in-law who has some major health problems to switch, but I have no had much luck. This is how positive I feel about this practice.

October 08, 2012

The PA and NP were great. The Physician appeared to be in teaching mode but was very helpful.

October 01, 2012

Pulgiano is awesome. I recommend him all the time

October 01, 2012

He has a really down to earth, friendly personality and took the time to really listen to me and I really appreciate that in a doctor

September 20, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano spends enough time with me to learn all he needs to about my condition and asks me questions about it so that he can advise me or he just takes care of it. I like him very much and am well satisfied with the care that he has provided me. I do ask that if he would not mind--could I have a 90 day supply of most of my meds--that way they do not cost me quite so much. I did forget to mention this to him.

September 11, 2012

Fact is, I've been addressing my current health concerns with other facilities and physicians for over ten years now. This if the FIRST TIME a physician seems to have listened to what I had to say about my health and history and actually thought outside the box, so to speak. I would absolutely recommend not only this facility, but my physician in particular!

September 10, 2012

I have seen a few different internal medicine docs at South Jordan, and Dr. Pulgiano was my favorite so far. He was direct and thorough and I felt very good about that visit (even though I was sick).

September 03, 2012

Excellent best ever service

August 27, 2012

Excellent Dr and PA and the facility is beautiful (felt like a day spa)

August 13, 2012

We really appreciate Dr. Pulgiano and his concern for us

August 13, 2012

I was very happy with Dr. Pulgiano and I've already recommended some friends and family to him. Awesome Job!! :)

August 10, 2012

So they put me in with Dr. Pulgiano. I don't feel that he listened to me, my experience was bad. I feel that my visit was a waste of my time and hard earned money.

August 01, 2012

It is not bad experience but I think the they talk very fast without letting me express other problem or concern I might have.

July 31, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano seemed hurried, not very friendly and it seemed like he couldn't wait to get out of the room. Quickest physical I've ever had by a doctor.

July 30, 2012


July 30, 2012


July 10, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was a no nonsense provider. I love that. He came in and listened. Took care of my questions and I was done. I can tell he valued my time.

July 05, 2012

This visit was for a physical; I had no specific medical complaints. The Dr. had very little in the way of comments - he ordered a battery of blood/urine analyticals; he did not explain what the analyticals were and when I was contacted all the informati

July 02, 2012

Excellent experience for a medical facility.

July 02, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano diagnosed my issue quickly, explained to me what was going on in a clear manner, prescribed and explained a medication that was very effective and made sure I understood and was comfortable with everything.

April 28, 2012

Was very good and attentive. Listened and showed genuined concern. Recommended Dr. P to my husband.

April 28, 2012

This physician did a 30 second examination and had his mind made up about me and my condition. He didn't ask me questions about this chronic condition. I only came to this provider because my PCP was booked solid. I will never refer anyone to this physician and I will surely never go back to his clinic for even the simplest of issues. It's appalling to me that this person made money off me.

April 25, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano is a wonderful provider, he cares enough to tell you what you need and makes sure you are comfortable with the decision, he is a take no bull provider and I love his care and personality

April 25, 2012

Very good first impression of Dr. Pulgiano

April 07, 2012

I'm considering making him my primary care doctor

April 04, 2012

Follow up appointment scheduled, which is good, I do have additional questions.

March 16, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was clear, concise, and to the point, I liked my visit with him

March 16, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was very nice and explained things in a plain way that we could understand without feeling he was talking down to us or belittling our intelegence. He seems to be very knowledgable and it is a comfort to know that he is the one taking care of my husband.

March 09, 2012

I found Dr. Pulgiano well informed and confidentand willing to refer if needed.

March 06, 2012

The doctor was very matter of fact, though he was complete in his explanations. He did allow me to ask questions and feel more comfortable.

January 20, 2012

My first visit with him and I felt comfortable. He called on lab results less than 3 hours after I visited the lab. Would recommend this provider

January 18, 2012

very good

January 06, 2012

Dr. P. was easy to be relaxed with. He showed confidence, friendliness and concern, offering two stages of remedy for sinusitus. I could use nose spray first and then move on to antibiotics after a few days if the results weren't good. Nice to not have to return for the antibiotics. Nice that he gave me the option to decide if I needed them or not.

January 05, 2012

He was so nice and he made sure I understood what he was trying to tell me.
