Dr. Buford saw my oldest daughter for her shoulder. She had been thru therapy and taking Motrin for about 6 months. We were referred to see him for a second opinion to see if she needed surgery because he is a shoulder surgeon. Dr. Buford did an ultrasound and made the diagnosis and explained it to us. He did a PRP injection in the office and she was better in about 2 weeks. No surgery!

I consulted Dr. Buford after suffering from acute right knee pain for over a year. I tried all kinds of injections on my knee but it did not give an iota of relief. Then Dr. Buford conducted a knee surgery. Within one month, my knee pain completely disappeared. Now I am on physiotherapy to regain full strength upon Dr. Buford recommendation. I am completely satisfied the way Dr. Buford took care of knee situation. I am ever grateful and thankful to him. Of course, I highly recommend Dr. Buford.

On 9/1/2017 I had stem cell injections performed by Dr. Buford. My appoint was at 9:30 , we left the office at 11:30 having had stem cells harvested, prepared, and injected in both hip and knee Our entire visit was as good an experience as possible. I am 1 month, today, from having had the procedure and my level of pain is considerably less. I recommend the procedure and Dr; Buford to anyone considering stem cell treatment. Thank you to Dr. Buford and staff.

I recently had an appointment with Dr. Buford and in no uncertain terms, Comforting. From the time I drove up and felt secure in the gated parking lot, to the smiling, warm, compassionate receptionist all the way to Dr. Buford's exceptional bedside manner. I felt Dr. Buford took as much time needed to answer all my questions and allow me to leave there feeling like I had them all answered. Thank you Dr. Buford and your staff.

Very poor doctor and a scammer. He will promise that PRP Stem Cells work and when they don't, he just runs off.

Dr. Don Buford was very courteous. Also his staff are very kind and courteous. I tore my meniscus in my right knee and he discussed the treatment plan and it was very clear to me. In two weeks I was able to walk without a limp. I recommend him highly.

Went to see this Dr because of a pain in my left shoulder.It was a terrible experience, I was twice in his office, and the 2nd time he saw my shoulder said he needed to do a procedure didn't explain what and left his office. Then the nurse took me to another room and I waited for like 30 minutes,he finally came without saying a word he put a huge needle in my shoulder so painful, nobody explained what for, and did nothing to relieve my pain.of course he charge my ins 750 & 600 dlls!&me100

Dr. Buford Jr. is an excellent orthopedic surgeon! He and his staff are very courteous and professional. He was able to to repair my bicep tendon and rotator cuff so I was able to start working out with no problems! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his field of expertise!
