the man is very experienced and listens and can tell you what you can expect. he treats me for Fibromyalgia over 10 years now. He was the first to diagnose me as other Doctors kept running tests and not coming to a conclusive decision.
in Lake Clarke Shrs, FL |
Dr Busch is extremely knowledgable, empathetic and thorough. I have been to National Jewish, Shands , U of M - as well as multiple stand alone RA/ Autioimmune Drs - I have been seeking appropriate treatment since 2011 - I found it here in the office of Dr Busch! All of his staff are very well trained, I love the Nurse Practionioners - I used to run a private hospital and have been in the medical field since the early 80's - Leslie K

There was a hard sell to non-insurance covered procedures and services. Did not feel comfortable with physican's explanation course of treatment plan.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
After all my test results showed I did not have an auto-immune disorder, he maintained that I had Lupus, Sjogen's AND Raynaud's syndromes. He wanted to put me on some type of medication that you have to first have an eye exams because a side effect is blindness. Why did he even bother having me take and pay for blood work if he only goes by conjecture? Avoid him like the plague!
in Boynton Beach FL |
Horrific. Extremely arrogant uncaring Doctor that pics and chooses what patients he will or will not see and hands the rest off to his Nurse Practioners who are not qualified in the field of Rheumatology. He actually raises his voice to psyients. And tells you how you feel based only off blood tests instead of using the combinations of a SED and RA rate as well as a an Anti-CCP number in conjunction with how the patron feels, AND a physical exam to gauge your swelling and stiffness.
