Dr. Buenting is aways attentive and a good listener. His strong knowledge base along with bedside manner make him an outstanding physician. My experience was related to a throat problem and my daughter's experience was with a peritonsillar abcess. Both times, his prompt diagnosis & treatment plan was accurate & effective. We are very appreciative!
