If you want someone who's warm and fuzzy, you might want to look elsewhere. If you want a first rate surgeon who's well experienced and highly qualified, he's your guy. I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience.

My mother went in because she had a calcified aorta. The first time he saw her, it was really bad and she needed surgery as soon as possible. The next time she went in, now it wasn't that bad and elective. This woman was having trouble getting across the house without getting out of breath. Should have known then it was going to be bad. The surgery took longer than it was supposed to, and then my mom bled out from the inside. I can't recommend this surgeon. My mom isn't here to not recommend him

Highly recommend Dr. Buss for surgery, he seems to be excellent at what he does. However, please go out of your way to get informed about what to expect post-surgery, as in my experience, I was not sufficiently informed. In addition, be proactive about your health and any signs of infection that may arise post surgery. My signs were not given enough attention by the staff and this became life threatening. In a word, please find additional resources and expertise to guide you through post-surgery
