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.
