Dr. Buscema takes his time, doesn’t rush you and always gets a complete assessment on all his patient’s. He is so sweet, kind and very easy to talk to. I enjoy our visits because he actually gets to know you, which I think is important. Call and get and appointment!! He is a wonderful Doctor with lots of experience too! Call!!

Watch out with this dr. He will kick you out of his practice, via "letter" no personal phone call, no help with what ever you are going through, just here's the door. Him and his wife could care less about helping people who have serious addiction problems.

Even though I don't see him for addiction help, I like the suboxone better than being on narcotics for the rest of my life. I have had over 30 surgeries in the past 10 years. Dr. B & Donna have been above & beyond awesome to me. He is not just one of those pill mills. He always takes his times & not only listens to my complaints of pain but also what's going on in my life. He has been amazing at finding the most suitable ways to treat my pain. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Buscema is a very helpful doctor. He actually cares about his patients. He tries to help you with what it is you need. He seems to actually care. He gets to know you and it's easy to talk to him. His staff only consists of one other person besides him and she is great. She is very friendly and does a great job scheduling, taking phone calls, payments, processing prior authorizations in a very timely manner. She has a lot of work to handle and she doesn't let it get to her.

Called to establish myself as a new client. The receptionist answered the call ON HER CELLPHONE in the car and had me on SPEAKER PHONE! She was incredibly unprofessional and has no phone etiquette whatsoever. This doctor needs to hire more professional and tactful staff.
