i was involved in a bad car wreck yrs ago and broke my hip. doctor buhr did 7 hip surgeries on me, was excellent. he was very patient and caring. i developed a staff infection in my hip before i met dr. buhr but he got me better. in my opinion he is the best orthopedic surgeon around. he is not afraid of taking on difficult cases like mine was. i would not go to anyone else for orthopedic problems but him.

Was sent to Dr Buhr after I broke my elbow and was told I might need surgery. I saw dr one time and other than that was brushed aside. He put me in a 90 degree locking brace and told me to take it out once in awhile and that was it. I had no further instructions to go on and not being a dr or nurse myself I had no idea what he meant. I took a second fall and reinjured my elbow before it healed and he refused to see me in person so I got a new dr. My elbow will never be right thanks to him.

Dr Buhr, in my opinion, is one of the best surgeons in the country. He has replaced both my knees and also my wife's. I could not be happier with my results!

Dr Buhr is one of the rudest doctors I've ever met in my life! He was rude to me and my family member and left us feeling terrible about our care! I wish that he would never have been our doctor!!!
