The secretary staff are airheads. The DR refuses to speak to any patients about test results, he has an non medically knowledgeable secretary call with results who said she googles things on Mayo Clinic! I was never diagnosed but was given several types of random prescriptions! Go elsewhere

I have been a patient for over 10 years. I find Dr. Buch to be outstanding, caring and skilled in my endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures which he and staff performed perfectly. His staff is talented and friendly. Dr. Buch deserve 6 stars at least in my opinion.

Although this list says he treats IBS, he does not. His staff will send And Internet article with missing pages about FODMAPS. The office has a chop shop feel and you don't get any FaceTime with the doctor. His nurse and staff are excellent I would give them five stars but I went there in excruciating IBS pain a month ago and they told me to go to the emergency room. That doesn't work for IBS. The results of my endoscopy were left on my answering machine no follow up appointment available.
