Dr. Buck is a wonderful physician with experience and a sense of caring and knowledge that stands out above all! I would 100% recommend him for all your sports related injuries and accidents. You will not find a more caring and conscientious team including PA Ashley and nursing staff.

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.

Dr Buck has taken care of my for torn meniscus in my knee and now he is treating me for a ankle injury. His PA Ashley is also really wonderful. If you have orthopedic issues, i would highly recommend calling and have him see you.
