October 19, 2000 turned out to be the worse day of my life. Dr. "Quack" Pruitt was one of the surgeons (Dr. Michael Zenn) at Duke University Medical Center performing a radical right mastectomy and tram flap reconstruction for a 1 centimeter lump In my breast. I was treated like a guinea pig. The most radical procedures were performed (needlessly) and a very vital procedure was neglected (sentinal node biopsy). 22 surgeries later, I am still in constant pain and suffering. He has accepted no responsibility in this fiasco. I was mutilated and maimed and left permanently scared and disabled for the remainder of my life. I went from gainful employment to humble disability. Patients--BEWARE! this man is a mutilator!

Arrogant, poor care, major errors during surgery. Life long injury as a result. Interesting he is no longer practicing medicine at Duke. He is gone! Thank God! Wish I would have know this sooner! Over all rating -0

Dr. Pruitt is exceptionally smart, friendly, and caring. He has monitored lumps in my breasts for many years, and performed surgery on me twice. I could not be more pleased.

Patient walked into surgery. Had a job, was not on disability. Ever since the surgery patient requires 24/7 care. I am typing this for the patient, which is my mother. I love her very much. Please, don't let this happen to you.
