I trust Dr. Guffin with my life. I have had the privilege of working with him in the operating room and witnessed firsthand his professionalism and calm manner even in the most difficult cases. My parents, sister and myself have been his patients. He is caring and acts like you are his only patient. We have and will continue to use him. Doctors like him are rare.

Dr. Guffin is an amazing surgeon! My anesthesiologist told me that Dr. Guffin completed his surgeries with great detail and great care and never had a "do over". I would highly recommend him. He is compassionate and puts you at ease. You won't find a better surgeon in the Southeast! Thank you Dr. Guffin!

Dr. Guffin is an awesome doctor, never makes me feel he is in a hurray. He has done 4 surgeries and me and if I need a 5th I will come back to Dr. Guffin. I do not mind the sometimes lengthy wait, it is well worth it.
