Fayetteville, NY |
I was assigned to Dr. Buchan after the practice fired my favorite and most attentive dr, Dr. Jane Hudson. I've seen Dr Buchan four times this year. She is always rushing and doesn't listen. She seems like she has her head in the clouds and as you are explaining your symptoms she looks at you like a deer in headlights. I'm very disappointed with her and the practice in Manlius (which I have been going to for almost 10 years. I am actively seeking a new doctor.

Needs to learn how to "actively listen."
Manlius, NY |
I have a chronic condition since childhood and this physician made me feel terrible about myself. She was abrupt and appeared anxious to "get rid of me"
