I really liked Dr. Van Buskirk. He was very analytical in the way he figured out my problem and let me explain my symptoms. Excellent at diagnosis. He asked if I had any questions. He has a good sense of humor. He is not a chatty type of doctor but not a stuffed shirt or has no chip on his shoulder either. I felt it was easy to talk to him even though it was my first visit. I didn't have to wait long and his staff was friendly as well. Overall, very good experience.

Dr. Van Buskirk treated my husband who was ill w/ chills, weakness, and head spikes, my husband's description. I suspected a low grade flu. After a thorough reading of my husband's med report, Van Buskirk called the condition a bladder infection. He ordered blood and urine tests. The final analysis was a urinary infection. I found this doctor to be highly professional and thorough.
