Dr. Buss now works at Aurora Oshkosh in Wisconsin. He was my cardiologist when I was a hospital in-patient. He never met me, never physically looked at me, much less evaluated me. He ordered a bunch of tests, then ditched my case, refusing to help the hospitalist manage my care. Two days later I found out I had advanced heart failure at another facility. Not the kind of trustworthy care you are looking for.
