Removed my gallbladder and I felt fine after surgery and it is now 3 weeks later and I feel great. He seems to be a very nice man and well recommended surgeon. I would use him again for sure hopefully i won't have too! Nice staff once you get to know them.

Dr. Buckley has taken care of my husband for 14 years. He is the very best surgeon we have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Caring, knowledgeable, professional in every sense of the word. And good bedside manner with his humor. We are so lucky to have him care for Jim. Sincerely James and Elizabeth ratel

Doctor Buckley is the best doctor/surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of removing body parts. He removed my gallbladder a few years ago. His bedside manner and sense of humor are stellar. He was knowledgeable and efficient. My follow up appointment was just as amazing.
