My daughter very recently had back surgery. I found Dr Bruffett to be so sensitive and extremely professional. We couldn't have asked for a btr Dr to take care of our daughter. Before the surgery, he prayed over her. It relieved us all to see such a spiritual human being helping her. We, her family and friends, highly recommend this extraordinary man.

Dr. Bruffett did a fusion on my husbands neck and my sister's back. We think he is wonderful. He will be doing my back surgery in a few weeks.
in Alexander, AR |
very rude, unpleasant doctor. He only sees what he wants. My husband is on workers compensation, and the first thing he wanted to do is get him off of workers comp. Said there was no reason for him to be on it. My husband had a fusion done by another doctor, who wants to do another surgery, we only went to Bruffett to get his opinion on the surgery not a lecture on being on workers comp. My husband right leg is not working properly and he says there is nothing wrong with his leg.

He preformed 2 lower back spinal fusions on me. I could not have asked for better care. He is an excellent surgeon and a fine person.

I have seen Dr. Bruffett several times along with my husband. He has never been rude, hateful or uncaring. We think he is an extremely knowledgeable physician. I am thankful we were sent his way. Thank you for praying with your patients before surgery, it makes us trust you even more. He does want the best for his patients and is very happy at his patients recovery success.

Very unprofessional, I got discriminated against for my lifestyle. I will not EVER recommend Dr. Bruffett to anyone. He would not even look at any of my medical history or paper work from other doctors. He is not very nice at all. If you do not need surgery and he cant get money out of you then he will not even want to talk to you about what is wrong with you. I am filing a formal complaint on how I was treated.
