I was recommended to him after another Dr told me my daughter wouldn't live past 6 cause of all her medical conditions. She's 25 with babies of her own. He's saved her life a few times. He speaks to you not down. I will never forget him!!

Dr Puckett is the best Dr I ever been to he is friendly and Professional. He great with kids and goes out of his way to help you raise healthy and happy kids. He always explain the illness and what will make it better. He also gives you a print out with what he gone over with you. I have 3 children that love him. He really cares for his patients your not a number or a pay check. He only sees kids or I would pick him him as my Dr also. This is the Dr you want to take your kids too!
