What People Say About Dr. Marek Buczek, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This entity is not even human in his behavior of patients. Cruel, rude, sarcastic, dismissive, judgemental and evil. If you care about your health or that of a loved one do not go to this sorry excuse for a health provider. He does not even come close to "best practice". His staff is rude and ignorant. This office is a snake pit. Shame on UH for having him in their system. He is a lawsuit waiting to happen. I hope that one day he experiences for himself the negativity, lack of empathy and overall maltreatment that he dishes out. I believe his narcissism would prevent him from being able to learn anything from that experience though since he is such a self-serving entitled monster. The only reason it is easy to get in to see him is that no one in their right mind would go back to him a second time. Did not even order tests properly causing a commotion that we had to get new orders and a true professional involved. Scary, demeaning experience.

Horrible! Acted like I was taking up his time. Very dismissive. I was upset about what is going on. Left me sitting in the room after a quick 5 min exam and said I am just an anxious person. 20 mins later he comes back and I ask so your not going to do anything and he said well will see what the cat scan says that another Dr ordered! He said "I see people like you all the time- i know what I am talking about." Gave me cymbalta. No compassion! Now I have to find another neurologist..not anxiety..

I found Dr. Buczek to not only be very knowledgeable, but very compassionate at each appointment.Also, after one of my tests came back 'dirty'-he was so concerned, he called my home that evening and wanted me to come back the next day for another test-at his cost. The results were the same, and I felt that while he did what he needed to do, it was difficult to give me the bad news.Brian Dyko goes above and beyond.His office staff (Lori) is very on top of things and also as caring as the doctors

An absolutely horrible doctor. He doesn't listen and then gives orders based off inadequate information. He is also very dismissive and incompetent.

Poor care given in hospital. Usually have to see nurse practitioner, not doctor. Failed to start appropriate medication to treat disease for 6 months. Doctor thought NP had started. Both providers have very different advice, opinions.
