      I have interstitial cystitis and kidney stones so I have seen many urologist in Cincinnati and elsewhere(including Cleveland Clinic).Dr Buffington has been the most encouraging urologist I have come across so far.He stays up to date on new treatments and procedures to help with my IC.He is also very open minded to new things I find and would like to try.Also when I'm having trouble he actually calls me back himself way after business hours.I wouldn't let my family see anyone else!He truly cares!
