      Dr. Buckley treated me and two of my family members. My husband and brother both had successful surgeries after suffering truly disabling back pain for years. I, fortunately, did not need surgery and have been able to reduce most discomfort through the carefully constructed therapy I received. I must disagree with some of the comments regarding Dr. Buckley and his assistant. They were both pleasant and gave precise descriptions of our problems, as we viewed our xrays and mris. Worth the wait
      in Boonville, NY |
      He is brusk and could use a brush up course on edside manners. Waited over 2 HOURS for my appointment andhad a 40 minutes with a nurse and a PA. Dr uckley came in and looked at the CT scan and asked if I would like a shot for pain. I said NO after it was explained on possibly how long it might last. I was never told what I can do or not do with my deteriorates spine and disc. Never got a chance to ask as he was in a hurry. I DON'T NEED THAT TYPE OF MEDICAL MENTORING EVER.
      Utica, NY |
      Long office wait. Dismissed with "It is what it is." Saw PA & MD total of 4 minutes. MD bill Medicare for "New Patient, 45 minutes evaluation." Cancelled "surgery" (spinal injections) day before procedure. Never called back despite 2-3 requests to do so. STAY AWAY.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
