    I can’t say enough great things about Dr Christopher Pruett. He is amazing! He repaired my abdominal hernia and it has been life changing. My incision has healed perfect. Dr Pruett has excellent bed side manners, I love his humor. And it definitely worked with my level of nervousness when I saw him for my first consult. I highly recommend him.

    I am 5 years out from a belly button hernia repair and just want to say it still looks amazing. My review though is not really about this belly button repair. It is about this mans character, as I was referring him to my friend I thought to pass my opinion publicly. This man has God on his heart and treats his patients as such, with grace and God given skill.

    Dr. Pruett performed an emergency appendectomy (with peritonitis) on me. Even though this was a complicated procedure, I was up and running in less than a week. Dr. P has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. Highly recommend him.
