    Dr. Buccalo is great! I've been assigned to her through my insurance and I really lucked out. She cares more about what's going on with you and listens than trying to prescribe you something that will just lead to another problem. She wants to help you take care of your body from the inside out. She's reassuring and attentive. Over the weekend I came down with something that needed urgent attention and she was sure to call me back to get the problem solved. The staff has been nice as well!

    The office staff & one main nurse are so-o-o snippy and unprofessional. Nor what I expect at a Dr. office!

    My 92 year old mother was a patient and recently we entered her in hospice. As my mothers pp the hospice nurse called her with some questions. Dr. Buccalo was rude and offensive to her and said she had no idea who my mother was. My mother had been to her office at least 5 to 6 times. My mother, my sister and I (all patients) will not be returning to her office. Nice to know her true nature, but what goes around comes around.
