Fantastic! I wouldn't use anyone else. He's courteous and explains every little detail of the procedure. I get to see him in the hospital for my procedures. He does Angioplasty so that my vessels are open for my Dialysis. He always advises my husband when the procedure is done and if there were any complications then he comes to see me in recovery and does the same for me. My procedures are done painlessly and I don't need anesthesia so my recovery is fast. I truly would recommend him to anyone

Only a 1 minute wait, and he listened to my complicated issues, had already read reports,and was able to confirm a rare condition that mimics vascular symptoms and point me to a Neurologist. I've gone to the ER many times, and been admitted over 5 years and had other doctors confused. All heart/vascular tests showed good and he was a kind and knowledgeable doctor! 10 stars! I have every symptom of the condition. It's frustrating other doctors couldn't figure it out. He explained why too.

If you want a dr that is trust worthy, honest to you, admits and owns up to mistakes, makes sure you are taken care of during and after surgery, Dr. Buckley IS NOT the doctor you want. His carelessness during surgery has changed and shortened my life. Then after surgery where he had cut my phrenic nerve which paralyzed my diaphragm and left me to be on ox 24/7 the rest of my life and so much more, and didn't get me the help I needed after surgery. I would rethink him being your dr if I were you.
