As a five year patient with Dr. Buchalter, I highly recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon. He is always ready to guide you as you contemplate surgery, answering all your questions, never pushing you beyond your comfort zone. He replaced my right knee expertly and I was walking around soon after surgery.

Will definitely recommend Dr. Buchalter’s services 110%, I can only say good things about him. Bedside manner is great, very few that will take time to listen to you and create individualized treatment plan. Because of Covid precautions, no one is allowed to be with you unless necessary, so he allowed for my husband to call in to be part of the conversation. Dr. Buchalter is very professional, kind and understanding,the kind of physician you want to care for you. More power to the practice! Stay well and safe to all staff!

I have been seeing Dr Buchalter the past 6 plus years after developing osteoporosis arthritis in my knees. He was very professional and relayed to me all of my options and different solutions that would help me make my decisions. I made the decision to have my left knee totally replaced based on his input and knowledge. Results were awesome, the procedure he performed was flawless and recovery was great. My right knee is now at the point we’re I have chosen to have it replaced. Dr. Buchalter is the only one I would choose to preform the surgery replacement. By the way, I live in Delaware and have no qualms about traveling 2 1/2 hours to see Dr. Buchalter and his team. If fact, no matter where I lived, I would not hesitate going to Dr. Buchalter as my Doctor. Thank you Dr. Buchalter, be seeing you soon. Joel Lichtenberg

Alas, the outcome of my husband's knee replacement is that his knee cap is on the outside of his knee! It bobbles back and forth with every bend and step and makes a popping noise each time. Dr. Buchalter has declined to repair it or take responsibility.

Dr. Buchalter approaches patients with "patience" and kindness. He exhibits a calm, caring, competent nature. He performed surgery on a torn labrum (hip) and the patient was essentially pain-free in 2 days. His entire office staff is very personable and helpful. It was actually FUN going to appointments.

On June 7, 2018, I decided that I could not stand the pain in my right shoulder anymore after self medicating myself with over the counter drugs(something we all try to do before seeing a doctor). I walked in using their No Appt needed services, and boy am I glad I did. After x-rays, I was seen by Dr. Buchalter, and he diagnosed my pain and administered a dose of cortisone. Three days later, I was able to sleep with no pain. He was so pleasant and understanding of my pain. Thanks again

Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Buchalter! He performed ACL replacement on my knee. It was my first time having surgery, and I was very scared. He was kind, calm, and reassuring. The surgery went so well. I’m recovering way ahead of schedule and have minimal scaring. Dr. Buchalter is an ll around amazing Dr and person!

Dr. Buchalter demonstrated exceptional professionalism and skill. He patiently and fully explained the injury to my shoulder, the implications, and all that would be involved in surgery and recovery. I also truly appreciated the entire team at the Bellona Ave office. From the responsive, friendly front desk to the great PT professionals, I felt fully supported throughout the recovery.

My experience with Dr. Buchalter was great. We discussed the knee replacement procedure he would be performing on my right knee, where it would be done and the estimated time I would be in the hospital. I appreciate the time he spent in assuring me that my experience as a patient would be good. My sister recently had a knee replacement performed by Dr. Buckhaulter. I would recommend him highly to my family and friends.

Extremely behind schedule, rushed assessment, and not very good at listening to the patient which may result in sub-optimal treatment/outcome. One of the most rushed providers I have ever visited.

I would recommend Dr. Buchalter based on my first visit to his office and his flexibility and courtesy extended to me even though I was very late for my scheduled appointment. He listened to my symptoms and did not base his findings solely on MRI reports. He went a step further to investigate the cause of my pain.
