Although this might be considered minor surgery performed on my hand the misery I suffered before operation was very annoying. From the moment of giving me a local shot in my hand to the end of operation and wearing off of deadening agent I have experienced no pain or discomfort. Not only can I say he is an excellent surgeon I have to highlight the personal care shown by Dr Puckett, Andrea and Nickey (nurses), which makes the patient very comfortable. I highly recommend him and his staff!
We are so glad you are happy with the care you received from Dr. Puckett and his team and we appreciate you taking the time to share this with others. Best wishes MBJ

My experience for my hand surgery was nothing but excellent. Dr Puckett, his nurse Andrea, L. Westenfelder PA and the surgical nurse provided fantastic care. Surgery itself went so fast, smooth & professional. They are a great team! I will highly recommend Dr Puckett to anyone who may need his services. Also I wanted to note, the front staff at Missoula Bone & Joint always had a smile and was very friendly- it made me feel welcome from the start. Thank you Andrea for all your help!
