What People Say About Dr. Brett Puckett, MD

Can't say enough about Dr. Puckett. I injured my wrist several weeks ago and he knew exactly what to do without hesitation. He scheduled me for immediate surgery to prevent further damage. He explained things before, during and after the surgery so I knew exactly what to expect. I'm 59 years old although this is my first surgery ever, I don't think it could have been a better experience. Great job!

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.
