During my initial consultation with Dr. Buckmire he was pleasant and informative. Unfortunately, on the day of my procedure he exhibited arrogance and a dismissive attitude.

Horrible, so unprofessional. I waited first for 15 minutes then when I went into the second waiting room he came 10 minutes later. I had to take a call because I had an emergency. I asked him to wait for ONE minute. And he responded when you're done, come and get meI said ok two minutes later, I asked his nurse that i was ready. 45 minutes later and he never showed. To say this with all honesty... I would never ever recommend this unprofessional and big Mr. Ego Buckmire.me13yrs Army Vet

I received competent, caring and successful treatment. Dr Buckmire and his entire team were amazing and provided excellent care to help me recover from my surgery.

I came to see Dr. B in January 2015 to discuss my severe Ulcerative Colitis. I researched and found Dr.B. I was scheduled an app quickly and he took his time discussing and addressing all of my concerns and options with my disease. He even called me after hours one evening to make sure I was feeling okay and to address additional concerns and fears I had. Dr. B was patient and professional every step of the way. He held my wishes in mind and involved me in my care decisions.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
