I've been a patient of Dr. Buch since 1995. He has performed hip surgery and a knee revision on me and I'm very satisfied with the outcome(s). He's a no nonsense surgeon and hasn't let me get away with any crap, with regards to not giving it my all in PT. I appreciate his get to the point, no sugar coating approach.

A horrid man! Please do not go to him for even a hangnail!!! Botched my hip replacement severely. Left me in severe pain Had to see a real orthopedic surgeon to reconstruct my hip. Now I’m pain free and walk normal. He flat does not care for his patients and wants your money. I was extremely dissatisfied with him. Horrible manners.

Awesome, Direct communication, does not paint the picture. He lets you know what is happening, what to expect and your options. Visits are timely, staff is supportive. I trust him completely, knowing I will get the answers I need to make a decision.

Very poor customer service. I had my xrays and MRI done two weeks ago. I have called several times to talk to the doctor or the assistant. Left several messages but have not received any call from the doctor. That shows they do not care about their patients.

My Mother is in ICU because of this doctor. He injected both of my Mom's knees, causing a life threatening infection. I have called his office munrious times and without a response from him. The doctor at the hospital who did surgery to clean up the infection in her said he has called him with no response. If y value your life or family member don't go to this doctor.

My mother was scheduled to have a left knee scope. The anesthesiologist could not find a vein!! The surgery had to be cancelled but Dr. Bush decided to inject her knees to give her some relief. Within 24 my mother could not walk and was temporarily paralyzed. My sister and I have tried numerous of times to reach out to Dr. Bush's office to no avail. Less than 72 hours my mother was in the Emergency Room. Within hours she had to have surgery on both knees. She has developed a serious infection
