Dr Buchalter is excellent but is office would receive the lowest grade possible-my 90 yo mother has to AlWAYS wait 30 min to 1 hour in the waiting room-it never improves-why make appointments if you can't see patients in a timely manner-I would have her change physician except she is 90

The only negative about Buchalter is his popularity, which makes it very difficult to get a timely appointment. From my last procedure, it took 6 weeks to get an appointment with his assistant and another 5 weeks to schedule another procedure. My pain level seems to be immaterial.
