Patient Comments (1)
Ashland, MA |
Dr Buchwald is the best MS neurologist I have had. She identified issues others missed. Her MS Clinic offers a comprehensive approach to treatment including PT, OT, physiatry, psychiatry, and MSW, as needed. She has been in the field a long time, knows MS inside and out, and keeps up on research. She cares about her patients, will often spend 2 hours with me, and she does a thorough review. Such a privilege to be in her care. Her nurse, Susan Nutile, is also very supportive.
