in Maryville, TN |
Dr Bussey is very courteous and respectful. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding endocrine disorders and internal medicine. I highly recommend him.
Maryville, TN |
Dr. Bussey may be great with diabetes but I would not trust his knowledge for other endocrine issues. His office is nice and his staff is nice but it is his overall inability to admit he doesn't know everything about everything that makes me give him 2 stars. It is ok for a doctor to admit to patient that he needs to confer with other medical professionals for accurate treatment and diagnosis.
in Louisville, TN |
Very professional, listen to everything I had to say. He actually saved my life. His staff were always professional and caring. Very quick response to our phone calls, very helpful about what treatment I needed. Highly recommend. Thanks again to dr. Bussey and his staff.
in Maryville, TN |
Arrogant and condescending. Does not take patient's whole health into consideration. Focuses only on where labs fit on graph or chart.
