What People Say About Dr. Alfred Buxton, MD
Reply
Only a month ago I couldn't image that one day I could live without Afrib all the time. Now my wildest dream has come true- thanks to Dr. Buxton your magic hands! This is the very first surgery I've ever had, and it's such a positive experience! Dr. Buxton and his team worked so flawless - every step a way was carefully prepared and explained to me before the operation (Ablation) and the after surgery care was done better than my mother and sister could. Thank you for fixing my broken heart Dr.
