Worst cardiologist I can even imagine. Never gives patient helpful info. Dislikes patient questions. Kept me on toxic drugs that created my medical problems. Thank God I got away from Dr. Bussey.

I've had Dr. Bussey as my cardiologist for over 9 years since I had a triple by-pass in 2008. Her knowledge, skill, bedside manners and complete care for her patient is outstanding! She genuinely listens and cares for her patients. I would give her my highest recommendation!
