Staff is discourteous, "snippy", and generally convey an uncaring attitude. Dr. Bufford is quick to evaluate, and quicker to refer out of his practice. Getting a return phone call is difficult, and after having recent lab work done, I asked for a call back to discuss details, and asked for a copy of the blood work. That was over a month ago and no call back, nothing in the mail. I have found a new provider.
