Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Buchalter "I believe in treating every patient as if they are part of my family. Given my 25 years of experience, I understand that orthopedics can be quite complex. I try to make even the most difficult and complicated situation clear and simple. Seeing a doctor can be a frightening experience. I never want anyone leaving my office without understanding their diagnosis and option. Although I am constantly learning new procedures, I will NEVER use any implant that does not have proven long term results."
