She is wonderful and my stomach issues are FINALLY going away and I feel normal again after so long of pain and discomfort. SO grateful that I can eat and drink again!! Dr. Buchanan explained every test and every process along the way and I had full trust in her.

Never- she treated my mother terrible. She sent her home treating her with comstipation when it was obvious to everyone her condition was much worse. We found another doctor who discovered quickly that my mother had a tumor in her abdomen. Dr. Buchanan refused to listen to my mothers symptoms and was happy to just let her die. I would never recommend this Dr. To anyone.
