This was my second visit to Dr. Buechler. The first visit was in 2012. My appointment was for 3:15 and there was no wait time. Both times he was very professional, discussed at length the problem and solution. During and after the procedure, I never felt as though I was being rushed through for the next patient but, actually felt as though I was his number one priority.
