Dr. Buchanan is a great urologist and a great surgeon. He is friendly and is always willing to spend quality time with his patients to explain the details of their symptoms and their care needs. He is an excellent surgeon, and he or his staff will answer patient questions or call patients back in a very timely manner.

Coming to Dr. Buchanan is like visiting a friend. He is so kind, and caring. He and his assistant, Jennifer are always smiling, and asking about how I am other than medical reasons. They remember you, and are prompt at getting you in, and out. He sent me a very compassionate letter when my son had passed away. Jennifer always ask how I am doing, and how my other son is. It feels like family, and you can tell how much she loves here job. Which shows you what a wonderful man, and doctor he is!

Dr. Buchanan was polite and seemed competent. Unfortunately, the clinic staff were terrible. I was in the ER earlier in the week, spending several thousand $'s in tests, etc. with a referral to the urologist. Dr. thought I had a pinched nerve, hopefully feel better in a week. I realized Friday my meds from ER would run out over the weekend. Called for refill, waited, called again. They leave a msg at 3 pm, I must come back to office before 5 pm. I call back at 4:30, office is already closed
