I met Dr Bussey in 2017 , I had some extensive test down. She was reserved and didn’t say much. I thought maybe she wanted me to complete the tests first and then we would chat. Not! From my opinion , she probably Is only good at conducting the test for the primary care doctors, but lacks anything else. Once I completed my test, I ask if she would be coming In to speak with me and the lady at the desk said maybe she’ll call you or something ( I can’t remember ). Never got that and never had that one on with Dr Busesy. Just piss poor bedside manner. And personal skills -Ignorant!

No star! But this site required one in order to write review. Horrible! Had NEVER had an experience with a Dr. like this before. It was my first with a Cardiologist. Waited two months. Brought in all heart related original medical records (they can’t find them now!). She was rude, condescending, had attitude, mean, attacking and insulting. It was weird. I had been on a BP med and showed her BP charts that showed it made a difference. She laughed at me and said it was just the placebo effect. When asked about a situation in which my heart rate would suddenly change and climb I mentioned an eve relaxed and watching tv. She said it was because of the show I was watching. That it stressed me. I answered “it was a Hallmark movie.” She didn’t even discuss my BP med. All this despite acknowledging that I was at high risk due to both my parents’ heart disease which began in their 40’s. (I’m past mid 50’s). She did nothing. AVOID! Waste of time. Went on and found a real Cardio Dr.

I've been a patient of Dr. Bussey about 5 years and I must say she is a wonderful, compassionate and most of all thorough Dr. She is concerned with her patients well being and answers all questions her patients asks her. I highly recommend Dr. Bussey to anyone who wants a well informed Cardiologist

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!

I'VE BEEN UNDER THE CARE OF DR BUSSEY FOR SEVERAL YEARS SUBSEQUENT TO MY DISSATISFACTION WITH A PREVIOUS CARDIOLOGIST. DR BUSSEY DISTINGUISHED HERSELF WITH EXPERTISE, COMPASSION AND DEDICATION TO "YOU" THE INDIVIDUAL IN DETERMINING APPROPRIATE, INDIVIDUAL MEDICAL TREATMENT VERSUS OFTEN SEEN WITH OTHERS WHO FOCUS "ON THE CLOCK" GETTING YOU IN AND OUT. HER DEDICATION TO THE MEDICAL CANONS AND PRACTICE OF THE SAME ARE BEYOND REPROACH. SHE ASSUMED LEADERSHIP, AMONG OTHERS, IN MY INCURABLE HEART

She is one of the few heart doctors I have encountered in Fairfax who do not treat their patients like a science experiment. She is warm, friendly and objective.
