Patient Comments (1)
in Seattle, WA |
I met Dr. Buckler this last fall after an ER visit referred me to a cardiologist. He and his staff have been amazing to work with and have been wonderful in followups or answering questions, and I have had a lot of questions. I received a call from Dr. Buckler yesterday as he just wanted to follow up and see how some of my appointments (outside of his office) went and asked if I had any questions. I appreciate his follow thru and feel I really was blessed to receive him as my Cardiologist.
