Outcome of rotator cuff repair exceeded my expectations. I am very happy that I finally had the repair performed and that I was in great hands with Dr. Buford. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Buford for any ortho situations. He uses innovative and cutting edge techniques that are not even available elsewhere. Dr. Buford does not just try to get your body into a better status, but truly tries to optimize your body's functionality.

After searching for a doctor that would take my insurance and had good reviews, I found Dr. Buford. His office was so helpful and kind in answering all my questions before my appointment. At my appointment, I was impressed with the front desk, the xray tech, the nurse and also with Dr. Buford! They were all gracious and professional. I didn't feel rushed and Dr. Buford took the time to listen and explain things to me.

When you go to see a Dr that is at the very top of his specialty you could expect them and the staff to be snooty or aloof, Not so here. I felt welcome and cared for.
