I used Dr. Pruitt for a shoulder surgery and it went VERY poorly. I have a long term disability due to his failure to accurately perform the surgery. I have had two other specialists look at my shoulder since his surgery and they both agree that at no point was surgery completed correctly. GO ELSEWHERE! Save yourself ALOT of undue pain!

Dr. Pruitt has been my orthopaedic surgeon for 15 years now and I and my family have had several surgeries with him. His staff is very friendly. You can always get in right away. Dr. Pruitt does a great job in explaining things in real people terms so that I can understand what is going on with my health.

Excellent care! Had my knee operated on and had little wait time, Dr was to the point and did an excellent job! The staff was friendly and helpful. I would trust him to operate on me again.

Dr. Pruitt is second to none! He has a compassionate bedside manner and his patients adore him. He is the one physician that I have had the pleasure of knowing who takes the time necessary to ensure his patients fully understand the extent of their diagnosis. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pruitt and the staff at Orthopaedics, PC.

Dr. Pruitt is great to work with. He was able to answer all of my questions and concerns that I had during my appointment. Dr. Pruitt thoroughly explained what he saw in my X-Rays and what we needed to do going forward. I needed to get an MRI scheduled and and follow up and the staff were able to get an authorization next day for the MRI and appointments within the same and following week. I will be recommending my friends and family to Orthopaedics, P.C.

Dr. Pruitt did my knee surgery in February 2017 and I'm very happy with my post operative results. He explained everything to me about my surgery and my post operative care at a level that I could understand. The staff at Orthopaedics, P.C. did an amazing job of scheduling my surgery in a timely manner as well as helping me with any questions that I had. I felt like everyone truly cared about me. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pruitt and his staff to anyone for their orthopedic needs.

Friendly office staff, they are very personable and like to get to know their patients. They can always get me to see a doctor or PA within a few days of my phone call if not the same day. Sometimes I wait in the waiting room for a while before seeing the doctor, but I am willing to wait for great service and a friendly doctor!

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
