Dr. Buzzanell is a very kind and caring doctor. He helped me when no one else could. I appreciate this medical practice and would recommend him to anyone who needs pain relief.
in Waynesville, NC |
I visited Dr Buzzanell for migraines. He recommended the SPG block. This did not work for me. He recommended and pushed this treatment again. When I declined, I was told that there is nothing more that they could do for me and recommended that I go to a headache specialist at Duke. He offered only the SPG block and nothing more for my migraines. What a waste of time and money.

I would consider another pain management facility, changed medical records from what they originally stated.

My experience with Dr. Buzzanell and all staff in his office have been first class all the way. I worked for 35 years as a nurse and to say the least my body has paid for it. I would not give back those days of taking care of patients for anything. I have been left with very debilitating back and sciatica pain from arthritis and 2 back surgeries leaving scar tissue. I do not like taking pain pills. Dr. B is the third pain specialist I was sent too. I just wish we had started with him.
Asheville, NC |
Very knowledgeable and up to date on his field. Careful and thorough in treatments. Very proficient skill set with the procedures. I would recommend Dr. Buzzanell and his staff to all pain patients in the area.
