Dr Buford has treated me for two shoulders and a knee and always offered advice and alternatives, answered questions asked. I had to have a shoulder surgery a month after back surgery and only my trust in him allowed me to make that decision. I would recommend Dr Buford to everyone.

New patient. As a RN myself, I appreciated the limited wait time in the lobby and the physicians knowledge of my issue. His ability to break it down to me to where I understand was also great.
