A brilliant physician and an absolute expert in his field. Nice guy, too. He's been overseeing my high risk of cancer, and I'm grateful to be in the hands of such a skilled professional.

Dr. Buxbaum is the finest, most caring, competent Doctor I have EVER seen. Thank you for the highest quality care along with such compassion. Dealing with such a delicate, sensitive, unpleasant area, you put us at ease and took care of the very serious problem. Your responsiveness is second to none. You will always be my hero!!!!!!

Series of events: 1) Pancreatic MRI on July 30th, a Saturday, at USC Radiology 2) Radiology tech could not find a vein 3) She explained that there wasn't a doctor (MD) at the hospital because it was a Saturday and I needed "deep thrombosis detection" for a viable vein 4) Second tech found a vein in my hand 5)The push to transport the saline and dye "blew out" my vein 6) A resident explained that the swelling and pain would dissipate 7) developed staph 8) blood clot 9) no call from Dr. Buxbaum
