Patient Comments (4)
Brighton, MA |
I don't know maybe he's a good doctor or even a great one, but have patients waiting to see the doctor for over 2 to 3 hours is unexceptable. And the staff, including the doctor didn't even think to apologize. It is now 3:40 pm and it's 3 hours past my appointment, but sill haven't seen the doc yet. So if u value your time STAY AWAY from here, I will.

Looks like he's running a money machine, processing as many people as he possibly can... Pack a lunch so you don't starve while you wait forever.
Salem ma |
Seems quite capable and very nice, once you get over the fact that he makes you sit in the waiting room for two to three hours every visit.. Great dr, but his time is a lot more valuable than yours.. I don't think he's capable of keeping a schedule, so plan on spending the day there-- with a crowd of other folks that are frustrated To be spending their day in a waiting room

Dr. Buzney has high credentials and he has much experiences but his judgement can be poor which can put patients in situations that are not cared for. He does not know his weaknesses and his staff are not aware of that going trough the routine professes with loopholes. Dr. Buzney has to prove himself that he is all-around doctor with sympathetic to any patients. He also need to be versatile in handling his staff, fixing up their manners to be more courteous to patients and be more understanding
