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.

I highly recommend Dr. Buchalter for your Knee surgery! I saw Dr. Buchalter on a recommendation from a friend and from my 1st visit with him I felt very comfortable with him. When it came time for my surgery the process was as smooth as silk from start to finish. I had a full knee replacement on 7/12/2016. I have followed his instruction to the tee. Today is 8/17/2016 and I have 100% extension and 130% flex. Dr. Buchalter and his team are top notch and very professional. Thanks Dr. Buchalter!

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.
