in Ione, CA |
Dr buss has been my whole family's doctor. He has helped my children so much! One doctor wouldn't help my daughter when she was sick, said she had a viral sickness and just let her get rid of it on her own (no medicine). I decided to get a second opinion from Dr buss and he found she's had a low grade pneumonia and gave her the medicine she so baldy needed to finally get better. I definitely recommend using him!
in Jackson, CA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Buss for over 25 years. He is not a pill pushing doctor! He is a country doctor and very interested in helping his patients.
in San Francisco, CA |
Dr. bus would better serve as a veterinarian. This is a pill pushing doctor with so little knowledge of the health field it's astonishing. And as an added bonus the staff is incredibly condescending and rude.
in Pioneer, CA |
An awesome country type Doctor. He listens to my issues and concerns.
