Dr. Buebendorf is a wonderful doctor. He performed surgery on my carpal tunnel syndrome and I am now pain free. Therapy was great also. I didn't know that my hands were so weak until I started working them after the surgery. Wonderful doctor and courteous and professional staff, many thanks!

Dr. Buebendorf’s care was excellent when I came in urgently on a Friday afternoon. My doctor was away yet I had an urgent matter that needed to be dealt with. He was able to contact my doctor and treat my situation and was very pleasant throughout the process!

I was reluctant to do anything about my carpal tunnel until I learned that I could cause permanent damage if I did not have surgery. Dr Buebendorf is very knowledgeable, forthright and to the point when going through his diagnosis, which I appreciate. He is very friendly, respectful, answers any of your questions, is compassionate and understanding. His staff is very nice and always helpful. If you need someone to take care of your hands, this is the place, and Dr. Buebendorf is your guy.
