Dr. Buvanendran Is the best of the best!! I've been a patient for several years and even though his office is very busy he always listens to my concerns and fears. Having risky procedures over the years I am confident I'm in good hands and he truly cares.

Dr. B is a complicated man and I can see how some people think his bedside manner is lacking. I worked with him for more than five years and had the opportunity to really get to know him. I promise you that he cares deeply about his patients and considers your battles to be his. He is not at all...more
