Dr. Pulliam was professional and explained my condition in a manner of which I understood. In addition he anticipates concerns making sure he addresses them so you won’t worry unnecessarily. I trust him and would refer any of my friends and family to seek his treatment.

My husband would not be here today if not for Dr Pulliam. 5 Years ago my husband had a stroke that required emergency surgery on his carotid artery. A 2 hour procedure turned into a 7 hour life or death situation, due to my husband throwing clots. A lesser doctor would have given up. Dr P called in his partner, and together they did a complete bypass and saved him. Today you wouldn't even know he had a stroke if you met him. I can not say enough good about Dr P.
