Patient Comments (2)
Troy, NY |
Poor communication of options for treatment of a problem swallowing and wanted to put in a feeding tube without even trying any other treatment. When we insisted we try medication first, it took 5 days before communication between doctor's office and pharmacy occurred. Meantime patient loosing weight! Switched to another doctor who provided options and treatment; will never go back to Dr. Buhac
in Sloansville, ny |
He is a terrible Doctor. He wrote me off as being okay because blood test came back normal. He wouldn't do a lower GI because of my age. A year later I came back with worse symptoms and they did the lower scope. They found colitis and ulcers. He still hasn't started treating it. I'm finding a new doctor. He doesn't seem to care that I am still having problems. Stay away.
