Buzzell didn't think a scan of any kind was necessary to determine shoulder damage due to a fall. An X-ray from my home doctor showed a fracture. I am not an idiot when it comes to damage to soft tissue with this type of injury. Come back in a couple weeks and we'll check your range of motion. He ought to let his assistant Batsi do everything. Batsi was very thorough, considerate, and a good listener...therefore, I will be seeing a different surgeon for my followup appointment

Not extremely personal or friendly, runs late, too busy to answer questions or spend much time with you. His Physician Assistant, however, was very polite and not rushed, was willing to answer questions.

My son, Ben, was in a severe accident where his arm was so badly damaged other physician's recommended amputation. Dr. Buzzell agreed to treat Ben without any promises other than to do his best to save his arm. Long story short, ben is leading a normal life and can once again ski and play hockey. Throughout the whole ordeal, Dr. Buzzell was encouraging yet honest and for that we are eternally grateful!

Met with Dr. Buzzell to review complications from a fall. He requested that I have an MRI to confirm damage he suspected. MRI showed complete tear of rotator cuff and dislocation of long head bicep tendon. Dr. Buzzell will be performing surgery on my left shoulder in about 10-days. He took the time to listen to my concerns and gave me encouraging responses.
