He was very rude and refused to let me talk. He seems extremely distracted and his eyes were constantly moving back and forth. He was no help. I was so lucky one of my own doctors called someone he was familiar with and they saw me and resolved my issue and acted normal too. I also saw a local tv station did a very negative report on Buzad as he was driving and I knew I would never let him do anything on me.

I have had multiple surgeries performed by Dr. Buzad over the past few years and he has been instrumental in improving my quality of life. Dr. Buzad worked tirelessly to help me through these procedures and he would go out of his way to consult with and seek out other specialists to help in my recovery. Dr. Buzad is a surgeon who truly cares about his patients and tries hard to solve your medical problems without surgery, but if surgery is required, he is the best person for the job.

Dr. Buzad repaired my complicated diverticulitis, which had a fistula communicating with my bladder, Quite a mess on the CT scans, with significant infection and inflammation. He used the da Vinci robotic system, on which he is an expert, to perform a colectomy. Incision sizes were small, recovery relatively quick.No complications.It appears to a complete success. Dr. Buzad inspired my trust, was responsive to my concerns, is a good guy, and an exceptional communicator, encouraged my questions.
