Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Buehler misdiagnosed me with having Wilson's disease. I went to two other opthamologists for second opinions who actually have seen people with Wilsons disease ( she had not). It turned out I have a very rare copper disorder and had to go to NIH in their undiagnosed disease program.

Do not feel as though she addressed my concerns. The technician who did the initial testing seemed indifferent and from the time I walked in I felt as though they were just trying to sell me extras.
