My wife Olga and I both have the good fortune to have Dr. Buchanan as our primary care physician. We have recommended her to everyone seeking outstanding care, to the point we've worried about overcrowding her panel. But despite her expanded patient load, we consistently receive the kind of caring, personal attention during each and every appointment that first endeared her to us. We've told Dr. Buchanan that if we ever move, she'll have to come with us because we'll never find her equal.

Since my appointment date had been wrongly scheduled, I was very impressed with the recovery made available to me by Staff and Doctor. According to the records I was a year late. Dr. Buchanan is very thorough and willing to help me with any of my medical problems.

Dr. Buchannan has given me insightful diagnoses and very effective treatment for about six years. She has gone out of the way to provide timely treatment whenever needed. e.g. in September 2016 when a serious medical problem arose I was fitted into her schedule with short notice; lab work was prescribed and Dr. Buchannan took weekend time to review the lab results and to call me with the results.

I had a productive and pleasant visit with Rachel Salerno on Tuesday, August 23. We review the blood work and she made adjustments to two medications and made suggestions for my gerd. I appreciate the medical attention that I receive. Irene Williamson

I have been a patient of Dr. Buchanan for about 14 years and cold not be more pleased with her skills, her diagnosis, her concern, and her pleasant attitude. She does not rush you through your office visit. I guess, you could sum it up by saying: she cares about her patients.

I am very grateful to Dr. Buchanan for providing excellent care to my elderly parents for over 15 years. Dr. Buchanan is not only a brilliant diagnostician but she is patient and caring. She explains conditions, treatments and medications in a way that is easily understood. She is easy to talk to and considerate; Dr. Buchanan never makes us feel as though our questions or concerns are trivial. My parents (age 89 and 90) are very fortunate to have Dr. Buchanan as their primary care physician.
