Spencer, IA |
dr Pruitt is a very personable physician who talks to you like a human being unlike a lot of others. his office and surgical skills are excellent. the problem is his office staff. my wife was due for a total knee replacement on 12.21.16 and a week before ran out of her pain meds which she obviously needed and called his office and the pharmacy to try to obtain them. the pharmacy even called his office to get the prescription to no avail. by Friday the 18th she hadn't gotten them,surgery 12.21.16

I had lost the ability to use one thumb. Dr. Pruitt did some reconnecting surgery, and I now have the ability to use that thumb.
