    I am a 75-year-old man who has been a patient of Dr. Buckingham's for a decade. I attribute a great deal of my excellent general health directly to him and to his recommendations, which I closely follow. He is the author of Hazing Aging (2015),containing numerous insights about means of avoiding the kinds of decline that we conventionally associate with advanced years. He is a medical thinker of great breadth who shares that knowledge generously with patients.

    Dr. Robert Buckingham is a well known and respected Doctor in the Ojai Community and Ventura County. As physician of the year in Internal Medicine, It really gets to show that he really takes good care of his patients. Dr. Buckingham gets to listen to his patients needs and always makes sure that every single one of them gets met. He has dedicated his whole life in caring, listening and communicating with his patients and their families. I truly recommend Dr. Buckingham to anyone.

    My name is pastor McGee, Dr. Buckingham has been my physician for the last 10 years are more and also my wife Prell he has been her physician for 30 years on more. He is a international physician of the year, internal medicine. And really he is one of the few doctors that knows nutrition and exercise as well as the nuts, bolts and washers. Dr. Buckingham is very serious about what he does in the advice he gives you which is always helpful. I know his staff love him my wife and myself love him.

    I have been a patient of Dr Buckingham for the last 4 years and I can only wish I had discovered him sooner. One unique aspect of his care is the fact that, unlike nearly every doctor I've ever had, he takes TIME ... as much as you need.. to answer your questions and advise you on his methodology and recommendations. His expertise also utilizes many more holistic approaches, meaning prescriptions are not necessarily his only solution! This is unheard of today in "traditional" care.

    Dr. Buckingham has been my PC for 7 years now. I couldn't be more pleased with the level of care I have received from him during this time. He has helped me resolve a couple of health issues that other doctors I've seen were not able to do. He is attentive focused and thorough;and has an excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend him as I believe him to be one of Ojai and Ventura's best physicians.

    Dr Buckingham quite literally saved my live by quickly diagnosing my sepsis.. frequently fatal, and spending the majority of entire night, along with his staff, applying the appropriate procedures and methodology needed. Without his expertise, I would not be writing this review. I have finally found a physician that meets my needs and I'm grateful for his dedication.

    Dr. Buckingham is one of the few doctors who knows nutrition and exercise as well as the nuts and bolts of his many talents as a healer and a guide. I have a serious heart condition and he has coached me, held my hand educated me and kept the medication minimal. He takes the time to talk and be with me every step of the way. Healing the heart is very slow and tedious and does not always work. With him at my side I am getting stronger every day. He is saving my life and there when I need him. TLC
