Dr. Buchanan is an amazingly talented surgeon. I went to see Dr Buchanan after a traumatic ankle dislocation and fracture. As soon as I met him I knew I was going to be well cared for. His extensive experience in sports injuries, and specifically ankle injuries, and his empathetic nature Immediately put me at ease. I am well on the road to recovery and know that my quick and steady recovery is thanks to Dr Buchanan!

I saw Dr. Buchanan to get a second opinion on my foot fracture. I found him a professional, caring doctor, with great bedside manner. He took his time to review my record and provided his expert diagnosis. I decided to continue with him and I strongly recommend him. His office staff, especially Lili, was also really nice and helpful.

From my first consultation with Dr. Buchanan to several post surgery visits I never felt rushed. He listened carefully, addressed my concerns / questions and patiently explained diagnosis, surgical process and various steps to recovery. Besides ultimate professionalism, his friendly demeanor and genuine interest in his patients make him stand out. I highly recommend Dr Buchanan.

Dr. Buchanan basically rebuilt my whole foot. It had become extremely deformed from a bunion as well as a hammertoe that was dislocated. People are amazed at my before and after pictures, and yet the recovery from this surgery was so easy compared to what friends had described for their more simple bunion surgery. Dr. Buchanan is an awesome surgeon and easy to talk to, and he's just so straightforward and competent. He's also very much into natural healing and is very encouraging and accessible. I can't imagine a better experience.

Dr. Buchanan is kind, smart and efficient! I've seen him twice, both times for my heels (different feet...). He listens and he makes you feel as though you are his only patient for the day. The staff, both at the front desk and at the exam area, are patient, happy and kind.
