The very first visit with him he told me that I was a prime candidate for gastric bypass surgery and really was not interested in anything else that I had to say. After a few visits and constantly being berated about my weight, I left him for another Dr....I lost 6 lbs with the new one....so go figure

Dr. Bussey takes time to understand his patient's needs. He is very kind and understanding. I feel he is an excellent Doctor. Few Drs really take the time to realize what your condition is and what needs to be addressed to remedy your problem. Excellent Dr and very nice person. His staff is wonderful. Highly recommend this office.

Worse Dr consultation ever! Horrible personality. He even said he had opinion of my situation before he even met me. Treated me like I was a waste of his time. "So why are you here?!" Very arrogant. Take your co-pay elsewhere!

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.

Arrogant and condescending. Does not take patient's whole health into consideration. Focuses only on where labs fit on graph or chart.
