Dr. Buchoff does not provide any feedback and spends about 2 minutes in the exam room. After one visit, his office called me to say that I had a urinary tract infection and they would not give me a prescription for an antibiotic. I had to spend more money and go to CentraCare to get a prescription there. Absolutely ridiculous.
Very poor bedside manner. Does not listen. You're in with him 5 mins or less. However his office staff are the best bunch of people I have ever had the experience spending time with. They are the only reason I stayed but sadly it's not enough anymore I hate to leave them but I need more from my doctor and Im not getting it there. When you are suffering with RA you need to feel like it matters and you won't get it here. Sorry.

Absolutely no bedside manner whatsoever. He show?s no compassion, concern or empathy for his patients. The longest visit we?ve had with him, with him actually in the examination room has been 4min 22 seconds. He averages around 2min otherwise. Comes in, says hello without looking at you, glances at the chart, if it?s time for blood work he?ll tell you otherwise he?ll just say I?ll see you again in ___ months. Leaves. Undeniably no concern or interest in whatever the patient has to say.
