He's a fantastic doctor and he and his staff go above and beyond to help their lucky patients. I'm still blown away that he has correctly diagnosed me for areas outside of his specialty more than once. This is a caring practice that he leads and I cannot rave enough about the care I receive from Dr. Buch and the kindness of he and his staff.
