We went thru yhe ER not knowing what was wrong, but knowing My Husband needed a Dr. After a Heart Cath., it was determined there was several blockages. Dr. Acuff, and Assistant both came into His Room and explained who and what they were, and the procedure that was necessary. Dr. Acuff was very professional before and after surgery, and My Husband, at post-op visit shook Hisd Hand and said, " THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE."

I could not have asked for a better surgeon to perform my open heart surgery to replace my aorta valve. He is an excellent surgeon and his entire staff is very professional, friendly and accommodating.
