What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Buka, MD

I was referred to Dr. Jonathan Buka for a cataract evaluation. My ophthalmologist said that he was referring me to the best, and he did. My consultation visit consisted of several diagnostic tests and a discussion of Dr. Buka’s years of experience. I was so confident I scheduled my surgeries feeling completely confident and well prepared. His office staff is friendly and knowledgeable. At every visit they put me completely at ease. I am very pleased with my cataract surgeries. Thank you, Dr. Buka!

He was very professional with me and always has been. If you are looking for a jolly and smiling Doctor he should probably not be your choice. However, I have always felt comfortable with his opinions of my eyes.

He is very cold does not even introduce himself. Disregards you or any questions you have. I’m not sure why he is even practicing because his demeanor is so uncaring and does not listen to anything you ask him. He needs to retire. We left the office not knowing anything and he just walked out of the room. He put drops in my eyes didn’t say anything and left . Came back not a word did another exam without even acknowledging me and said u need a specialist. He than left the room.

Had a vision incident /left eye worsening. The asst did all the testing; Dr. Buka did not even remain in the room. He returned after all testing, told me I have 20/20 vision and that I read the charts. I told him during the exam I could not read the charts w/my left eye, & I told the asst I could not read the charts; he repeated he sees no problem and told me again I read the charts. Again, he was not in the room during testing; total lack of care. Will never return to this physician.
