Dr. Bueshcher is a very uncaring doctor. In a long life with many experiences with different doctors, I have never encountered a doctor who has behaved as badly as Dr. Bueshcher. I could cite many examples to demonstrate his attitude, but I will just share one. On the day my scan came back he walked into the room and stated, " You have cancer." Then he walked out of the room and never came back. I strongly advise you to seek a doctor who has some human kindness and compassion.

Dismissed most questions and concerns I had and did not answer many of the questions I asked. First time I have ever felt the need to see a different doctor.
