I have been a patient at NJBC for over a year now and have not been disappointed. Dr. Buwen is a great doctor who shows great concern for his patients. He gives you as much time as you need to address any problems or concerns you may have. I would and do recommend Dr. Buwen and NJBC to anyone needing their services. I always have a very pleasant experience when I go to my appointments.

Dr. Buwen is the most compassionate physician I ever met. Part of preparing for bariatric surgery is starting a weight loss diet. Over the 4 to 6 week medical preparation period my dietary weight loss was so successful that I actually changed my mind and decided not to proceed with surgery yet. Dr. Buwen was very understanding, did not pressure me to proceed with surgery and assured me that he will always be there to support me even with non surgical options. This kind of honesty is exceptional.

My experience with Dr. Buwen was one of the best I have ever had with a physician. The staff is friendly and helpful and never make you feel as if you are a bother, no matter how many questions you ask. Dr. Buwen himself explains everything in a way that is easy to understand and makes you feel comfortable.
