Dr. Bufford is great. She has a way of making you feel comfortable when she walks into the room. Sometimes doctors are very formal and uptight- that is not Dr. Bufford. She is down to earth and I feel totally relaxed around her. I have found the doctor for me and I recommend her for you and your family!

Easy to talk to, listens and is actually concerned about your health. Not like others who run patients through to get the head count up. Several family members have changed to her as their doctor also.

Hands down, Dr. Bufford is the best primary care doctor I have ever had. She never blows me off. She always listens. And she tells it like it is, which I appreciate. She has helped myself and my husband more in 2 years than our previous doctor did in 15 years! I am so thankful we switched to her and I recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Bufford is great. She seems to love what she does and I did not feel rushed or dismissed. I have been having stomach problems for years and never get answers. She asked me numerous questions, ordered labs, and set me up for an ultrasound. All this in 1 visit. I’ve been seeing a doctor for 2 years and he has never done this. Thank you Dr. Bufford for listening and investigating!

My family sees Dr. Bufford and we all love her. She is great with my teenager and has whipped my husband into shape too. She doesn’t just throw medicine at you. She actually listens! I hope she never leaves NWA- but if she does, we will follow her!

We adore Dr. Bufford. She personally called me at home to check on me- something I have NEVER experienced. I am so glad we found her. And don’t let that pretty face fool you- she is smart as a whip!

She saved my life! I was told I would not have made it if she had not sent me for testing. Thanks to this smart lady, I will have many years ahead of me. I will send all my people her way!

Dr. Bufford is a rare find. She is honest and approachable. She is down to earth and does not use “fancy doctor talk”. I hope other patients find her because she has changed the way I view the medical profession. She really is special.
