Do not receive treatment from this guy. I would not bring my pet to him. He does not even care if your in pain after he messes you up.i have been to a few doctors because of my lower back problems. He is the worst and only made my much worst.find a good doctor in a bigger city like Syracuse or Albany . Everything I telling you people is a FACT I hope to save Simone from him and his educated guessing. God bless
in Ilion, NY |
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.
