Patient Reviews (1)
in Murrells Inlet, SC |
I cut off 3 of my fingers with a table saw. Dr. Putman reattached them during a long surgery. I had to have the ring finger removed later because the damage was too great. I have had Dr. Putman perform 4 surgeries on my fingers n the past 2 years. He has excellent bedside manners. He listens and then advises what would be the best path to follow. I would highly recommend him for any surgery that he would perform. I can't thank him enough!
