What People Say About Dr. Dallas Buchanan, MD

Dr. Buchanan is a superb plastic surgeon! He has done the reconstruction after I had a double mastectomy. Both the initial surgery and the final operative procedure to do fat grafting and insertion of implants have been flawless. He is a highly skilled plastic surgeon and an incredible human being! I could not be more pleased with the results and the care I have received. He is absolutely the best and I can't recommend him highly enough. As soon as you talk to Dr. Buchanan you know you are in the best hands and will receive the highest quality care. I am very thankful Dr. Buchanan was my surgeon - the results are perfect. Dr. Buchanan will spend as much time as needed to explain procedures, provide options, and answer questions. He is patient, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable about his field and also is current on the latest procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Buchanan!!

I'm so pleased with Dr. Buchanan and his staff Michelle and Shannon. From the moment you walk through the front door you are treated wonderfully. I can't express enough how caring and compassionate Dr. Buchanan and his entire staff are. I've been seeing Dr. Buchanan for breast reconstruction after breast cancer and I couldn't have found a more knowledgeable, professional, kind and caring doctor. Dr. Buchanan will make sure he meets the needs of each and every patient. I'm so grateful.

I went to him to discuss getting reconstructive surgery after a double mastectomy. He convinced me I should do a reduction first, which made no sense, but he's the dr. His Office told me they had authorization from my insurance when they did not. Also not happy at all with results. I asked for a C cup, and I'm still a dd. I started off as a ddd.

Dr Buchanan is fabulous!! His office is beautiful. Decorated with lovely artwork. I instantly felt at ease upon my arrival. He took plenty of time with me to understand what I was thinking about and provided a variety of options. He and his office staff made sure all of my questions were answered.

Dr Buchanan is a terrific physician. Board certified, personable and patient focused. He is attentive, listens to his patients and performs at the highest level. His support staff is also excellent. Nobody better, nobody more caring and nobody more ambitious when it comes to working with his patients. He’s made a huge difference in my life.

I called Doctor Buchanan to ask some questions about a breast implant removal, before the initial consultation. He was open to them, which I appreciated. He listened to me and answered all of them (I had a lot). I had my consultation and felt even more comfortable with the procedure. He gave me several options, but ultimately I decided to go with a breast implant removal with a full capsulectomy (where scar tissue surrounding the implant is removed). Very pleased with my results!

The whole experience from start to finish was scarring. I have never felt so humiliated and so used all at once. I have a lot of body shame and have suffered from depression and bullying most of my life. I seeked out Dr Buchanan and his staff because of their reputation and high rating. The receptionists were cold and judgmental. I felt like I was back in high school again. Dr Buchanan actually stated that he could 'understand why I would want a breast augmentation' while he was examining.

I've worked in the OR for 38 yrs. I've seen many breast cancer surgeries. Unfortunately, breast cancer got me. I chose Dr. Buchanan for his expertise, attention to detail, & board certification. He knows his stuff! Its been over a year since my reconstruction. I didn't think my breasts would ever look good, I'm a perfectionist. He really is a visionary surgeon, they are beautiful! You need a surgeon who can see what you can't picture when dealing with diagnosis & surgical intervention.

I saw Dr. Buchanan for upper eyelid surgery to correct some baggy skin (from aging). Although he warned me about bruising and swelling, I only had the tiniest bit. Am so thrilled with my results. Prior to the procedure I was very nervous about having something surgically done to my face. Am so happy I got up the courage and found the best surgeon. THANK YOU DR. BUCHANAN.

Deciding to have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction due to the BRCA mutation was extremely difficult. I am so thankful I had Dr. Buchanan as my plastic surgeon. He is an extremely kind, easy going, and caring person who truly cares about his patients. Above all, he is an excellent surgeon, the best of the best. He takes his time during surgery to ensure the results are as close to perfect as they can possibly be. I could never say enough good things about him and am amazed at my results

I had been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 38 in 2017. I had read about Dr Buchanan and his excellent reviews. I made multiple attempts to request an appointment/consultation and never received a call or response to my requests. I am greatly disappointed and saddened by the lack of professionalism.

I waited 4 months for a consultation. I drove 150 miles in the snow (there was a winter storm warning) for this appointment. Only to be told he was no longer accepting my insurance "it's just not cost efficient". Maybe they could have told me that when they confirmed my appointment.

In July 2016 I was 29 and just diagnosed with Breast Cancer. After many doctor appointments I made the decision of having a bilateral mastectomy. Dr. Buchanan was recommended to me for bilateral reconstruction after mastectomy for DCIS. He is a perfectionist with amazing surgical skills and a truly caring bedside manner. He always explained every step in my process in great detail and I felt very comfortable with all of his decisions and recommendations. My results were phenomenal!

Dr. Buchanan did my breast reconstruction after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2016 and had a unilateral mastectomy in Dec 2016. He is very friendly and knowledgeable and I am happy with the outcome so far (I still have another surgery before I am done). He answers questions in a way that is easy to understand and his team is always professional and courteous.

Dr. Buchanan is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. I met with Dr. Buchanan prior to a bilateral mastectomy last fall. He thoroughly explained all the options for breast reconstruction so I could make an informed decision. The day of my surgery, I felt confidant about the procedure and the outcome. Each time I met with Dr. Buchanan, he always answered all of my questions. He is innovative---always making improvements that benefit his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Buchanan!
