in fremont, ne |
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.
in Omaha, NE |
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.
