I had the good fortune of being referred to Dr. Bufkin when it was discovered that I needed to have my aortic valve replaced. The surgery was a huge success. My recovery has gone extremely very well also. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bufkin. Beside being a terrific surgeon, he is very friendly and caring. I would recommend Dr. Bufkin to anyone who needs any type of Cardiac surgery.
