Dr. Busch is by far the best physician I've ever encountered. He's knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate. He calls his patients directly and answers any questions/concerns that they may have. His mind is phenomenal and he's always 10 steps ahead of whatever the issues arising may be. I highly recommend Dr. Busch to any patients needing his services and expertise. He is a rarity and they don't make doctors like him anymore. God bless him!

Dr Busch has been my physician for over 30 years. His care is A+ and he is always on his game. We are blessed to have him as part of our community. My son chose a path in pharmacy and was very fortunate to participate in Dr. Busch's practice as an intern. If you are fortunate enough to be a patient of his, you will always be in the best of care.

I saw Dr Busch to review and follow a previous thyroid tests indicating thyroid nodules. I was very impressed with Dr Busch’s knowledge of my condition and his upbeat and empathetic personality. He went out of way to make me comfortable and immediately prescribed and personally arranged an ultrasound and specific blood tests germane to my symptoms and condition. Dr Busch called me that very evening to inform me of the test results and his reccomendations. I strongly reccomend Dr Busch to all.

There is not a more engaged and knowledgeable, and caring Doctor in this field of practice. It was strongly suggested by my heart doctor to see Dr Busch after several other doctors couldn't and didn't help me get my diabetes under control. Dr Busch solved my problem quickly with the proper plan and constant tweaking to give me a great quality of life for several years now. If you value your life, and your current doctor isn't able to put a successful plan together, here is your answer.
