Patient Comments (4)
in PENSACOLA,FL |
He is easy to talk to/with and is not intimidating as some doctors have seemed. Very knowledgeable and seems to genuine when it comes to caring for you well being. Besides interactions with doctors it is even more important to be critical of his office and personnel in which he/she employs. The NP,Front desk, scheduling end even the nurses sticking me with needles, are all great people. I have no complaint other than life takes a toll and bodies naturally start to break down. I appreciate my doc

Dr. Buchalter is the most compassionate doctor I know. He takes time to really listen to your symptoms and discusses your treatment options. He is amazing. Dr. Buchalter is the most caring and compassionate doctor I know. No one necessarily wants to need to go to the doctor. Dr. Buchalter makes it a much better experience. I would recommend Dr. Buchalter to anyone.

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
in Pensacola, FL |
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.
