As long as Dr. Buchbarker practices in Pittsburgh there is no need to consider travel to distant facilities that advertise world-class care. She is among the best. My wife's type of metastatic breast cancer has a five-year survival rate of just 22%. Under Dr. Buchbarker's care my wife made it to her personal goal which was to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you, doctor.

Dr. Buchbarker has been my oncologist since 2001. She is a caring and compassionate person and no doubt helped me in my being able to handle my illness in a positive way. She has a tremendous "bed side manner" I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor.

I've never in my 56 years had a doctor call me on my birthday to wish me Happy Birthday. I know that's not medical but I was taken a back by it! I haven't been seeing her long but I'm very satisfied. Wonderful bedside manner. Seems to be very up to date with the latest advancements in Breast Cancer Mets.
