Dr. Buchanan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Buchanan "Dr. Buchanan originally intended to practice medicine in a third world country so that he could make a big impact on people's lives. When having kids tempered his travel plans, Steve realized that he could be just as useful at home in the U.S. Dr. Buchanan chose family medicine because he wanted the ability help whoever walked in the door. When asked about his philosophy of care, Dr. Buchanan explains, "I like to try and explain what the patient is facing, what the options are, and involve the patient in shared decision making." His hobbies include spending time with his family, biking with his dog, playing guitar, and doing yard work."
