I have had several knee surgeries and have always had Dr. Buchert. I trust his opinion, he is very Professional and an excellent doctor.
in Eldon, MO |
I had a hip replacement in 2006 and recovery went very well. Dr Buchert has been monitoring me for a year due to a fall and broken femur. I have followed all his recommendations and everything is working out very good for me. Thank you Dr Buchert.!
in Memphis, MO |
I was in alot of pain and he was very caring and urgent to get me some relief. He was very easy to understand when explaining the existing problems I had. I highly recommend!
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Buchert has always been courteous to me and has taken the time to answer questions if I've had any. He also did my left hip replacement and did an excellent job. Now I'm getting ready to do the right hip.
in Kirksville, MO |
Dr. Buchert saved my life and my leg. I came to him after being in a hospital where I had both knees replaced at same time by 2 different doctors. One leg did fine. The other leg was a horrible nightmare. Thanks to a consulting doctor I was transferred to Dr. Buchert in Columbia, MO. He told my husband he did not know if they could save my life, let alone my leg. I lost my knee but have a great titanium fused leg !! It has been a long process, but I'm very, very grateful to Dr. Buchert.
in Hallsville |
Dr. Buchert is an efficient, intelligent doctor. He and his office is friendly and on top of their game.
in Holts Summit Mo |
He took care of me after a bad fall I took on ice when there was not another doctor available that would or could fix my hip.My family & I were very pleased with his care & expertise as a doctor.Thank You Dr. Buchert , Rosie Thomas
in Montgomer City MO |
I had both my hips totally replaced. I was very satisfied with my care from start to finish and I would highly recommend him.
in Rocheport, Mo |
I .gave. had 2 total proceeds done by Dr. Buchert. Both were well done. He is a compassionate man and a great surgeon.
in Hermitage Mo |
Dr. Buchert has been kind and understanding. He explained everything and found the problem with my knee replacement the other doctor who did it missed. So he was able to go in and correct the problems. Which has given me back most (still healing) of my activity level. I highly recommend him.
Columbia, MO |
Excellent care. Thank you!
in Lake of the Ozarks |
Dr Buchert scoped my knee 4 months ago. After repeated visits, as I was not improving, I fired him. I went to a knee specialist in St. Louis only to find that I have a hairline fracture in my tibia. Dr Buchert offered no warranty or apology for my 3 months of pain, $10,000 and no cure. I have always heard that Columbia Orthopedic is the gold standard, not in my case.
in Bonnots Mill, MO |
over 3 years ago I had a Bi-Lateral knee surgery by Dr. Buchert. I could not be more pleased. On follow-ups he explained how I was healing and answered all my questions.
in Chillicothe, MO |
not very thorough
in Columbia Mo |
Did not take time to answer questions
