Dr. Buckman has been a positive part of my life. She has seen me through cancer 10 years ago and takes wonderful care of me. She is the first one to remind me to schedule a follow-up and seems genuinely concerned.

Negative reviews, i can not understand that. Dr Buckman is a very knowledgeable doctor. She has been working with me on getting my diabetes under control. Without her help I would not be were I am today. I have had a few setbacks, love my carbs. She is always extremely supportive and understanding. Not making me feel bad but gives support with referrals to a dietitian. I would highly recommend her! As for her rejecting drugs options based on her opinion, is that not her JOB!

I too will be looking for a new primary care. While I wouldn't say she is quick to write prescriptions, I often feel judged in my appointments. I also found her to give medical advise off her own biases and not medical fact. (jumping to conclusions when I asked about something, saying she wouldn't give me medication because she didn't 'like' it for 'that'- completely derailing me. I haven't felt comfortable since.)

I have found Dr. Buckman to be an excellent resource for my medical needs. When I saw less than stellar reviews for her on this site I felt I had to write this endorsement on her behalf. She earnestly cares about my health. Her referrals are spot on. Her knowledge and instincts lead me to consider her a highly intelligent and skilled doctor. My health is generally decent but I would not hesitate to trust her with more complicated concerns...UNEQUIVOCALLY.

Dr. Buckman is as thorough and skilled as any physician I've ever had. She most assuredly does NOT give prescriptions in a cavalier fashion. In this respect she is far more cautious and careful than other reviews might suggest. I've never had any problems following her medical advice, and my resulting outcomes have always been good. I would trust her with my life and in a sense, I do just that.

Dr. Buckman is extremely thorough and spends a lot of time going over things with me. She also uses a well-rounded approach to health issues that don't just entail writing a prescription. I could see Dr. Buckman coming across as tough (not sugar coating anything) but that is something that I value in a PCP. Instead of just sweeping things under the rug, I'm more aware of my health than I ever was after switching over to Dr. Buckman. For me, it has been a very positive experience.

I am now in the process of looking for a new primary care provide. I am not exactly sure what I did wrong but each time I go into her office, I always feel like I am being judged for being there. to the point where I am afraid to make an appointment when I know something is wrong. she is very quick to write prescriptions for anything, instead of figuring what is wrong first. if you have a choice STAY AWAY. I wish I researched her first before going to her. lesson learned.
