We are performing most outpatient procedures in our own office based surgical labs to ensure every precautionary measure to prevent contracting infection or illness is taken. Most vascular surgeries/procedures are essential in preventing major health complications or even mortality.

Most compassionate, patient, and wonderful man/doctor I’ve ever known. THE BEST!
Although you’re not guaranteed to see the same doctor every visit, I must say it’s been nothing but a positive experience getting to know each of them. Who ever hired these doctors did a fantastic job making sure they possess the same caring demeanor. I’ve been going here for years for routine follow up care and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Keep up the good work. You’ve definitely improved my life 🙂
There aren’t words to describe the wonderful feeling of knowing you’ve found the BEST surgeon. I’ve had my share of troubles which lead me to the world of dialysis. Not a place you want to be, but sometimes there aren’t any options. After having difficulty with several access attempts, I found out I was a candidate for a new non-surgical procedure. Dr. Bafford is a truly remarkable surgeon. He’s also very personable and compassionate. You made life more functional for me and I thank you.
Grateful patient 🙂
I’ve had many scans in my life unfortunately, but have never received the compassion and kindness like I did from Bobby. He took his time and made me feel less nervous about a test which results could’ve meant more surgery. I knew I was in good hands and that’s the most comforting feeling. Thank you for being you! Great technologists and great doctors.
