Dr. Buchanan, as well as the whole staff, has consistently done an outstanding job with my health concerns. I trust his recommendations and appreciate that he LISTENS to me and answers any questions and concerns I have. It's not often you find a doctor who cares ... he does!

He is a physician in our doctor's practice. We have used him in emergencies. Sent my husband home with pneumonia which he did not diagnose. We went to ER. Told me not to worry about blood pressure over 140/90.
