in Cornelia, GA
Horrible, horrible, horrible! Do not go to this facility. Rude! Will not call back to set appointments. Too busy to give you the help you deserve! Should be off of any approved doctor list! Dr. Puckett's staff is awful. So disappointing. Doctor is cocky!

I'm a person who's very selective when it comes to physicians, and especially surgeons. I would highly recommend Dr. Puckett because of the excellent outcomes I experienced with bilateral CMC arthroplasty.

Office staff non-responsive, gave conflicting diagnosis, dismissive and rude. I will be looking for a new Doctor.

Dr. Puckett and staff are very knowledgeable, knows what he is doing. Mentions all options and is very honest with his dealings, which for me is most important aspect of his office. Very helpful staff.

Hateful and dismissive. Changed diagnosis and surgery orders with no reasonable explanation. This after waiting an hour and a half.
