Dr Puckett had been amazing. He takes the time to listen and understand your problem, explains your options, and helps you decide on what solution will work best for your situation. I first saw him 10 years ago for help with my hand and when I reinjured it he was the only doctor I trusted to help me again.

I fell injuring my left arm although at first I appeared to be a contusion I later found out MRI that the left tricep was ruptured. I saw an Orthopedic surgeon but saw Dr. Puckett as a second opinion based on comments from former patients and nurses. I have been an health care for over 40 years and found Dr. Puckett surgical skills unsurpassed in areas of the upper extremity. Dr. Puckett and staff was excellent. I recommend this provider highly. GREAT RESULTS.

Dr. Puckett is a very skilled surgeon that saved my son's hand after an accident. He also knows when to recommend not to have surgery, as he did a few years later for my husband's chronic back injury. Dr. Puckett also has a wonderful manner with his patients.

In addition to being an outstanding surgeon, Dr. Puckett is a consummate gentleman. He has worked on both of my hands and I would give him a grade of A+. Highly recommend him.

I had to have surgery for a carpal tunnel release, as well as a ganglion cyst removed from my right hand/wrist. He gave me detailed information about the surgery. I felt that my hand was in his hands. Although my wrist became infected, Dr Puckett never skipped a beat. His PA-C was great too, from taking off the post op dressing, to discovering the infection, to taking out stiches. She was very kind & kept me relaxed. All & all, a good crew.
