Dr. Buckingham was not recommended to me or refereed to me by my PCP. I requested to go to her. Stacking knowledge, dedication, service, and care, how can someone else be better?

I didn't feel I was treated with respect. Don't believe the doctor read or reviewed any of the history I spent time filling out. She made some peculiar statements regarding my feelings about my condition that were not mentioned. I had very little conversation with the woman at all.
