      Extremely personable, professional, and knowledgeable. I am a nurse case manager who visits Ortho offices nearly every day of the week in several areas of the state, and Dr. Buck is extremely skilled and has the the best surgical outcomes that I have seen.

      i had a Total Knee Replacement from Dr. Buck in March of 2018. The pre-surgery information was excellent, the surgery went perfectly, and my recovery went as planned. I have had no complications and very little pain. Dr Buck has the perfect combination of confidence, kindness and serious care. He and his staff are always available of I have questions or concerns. I was given very complete and specific post-surgical instructions with which I complied. So grateful for this exceptional physician!

      No qualms about recommending Dr. Buck. I went in believing I had a torn meniscus, I did but also had a torn ACL. I was nervous about the surgery but his confidence and manner put me at ease. As an aside, when he came in prior to surgery wearing a Seahawks scrub cap. I KNEW it was going to be alright. :) My Physical therapist was amazed at my progress and made the comment that if he or anyone else he knew ever needed knee work he was going to send them Dr. Bucks way. No issues since.

      I was charged 144.00 for an office visit. Dr Buck was in the room less than 5 minutes to tell me I needed surgery. Did not explain to me anything about the procedure that needed to be done. Total waste of money. I sat in the examining room for 15 minutes before the doctor to come in for 3 minutes.
