I saw Doctor busby for roughly 2-3 years. I realize he never saw My previous records showing the L5 sacralization into my spine and the space between my S-1 but never the less even after imagining the wrong parts of back even after informing of diagnosis he persisted I had a healthy back. Not only was this incorrect but at this point I had additional injures to the right, along with fracture to my right ankle in which I worked on for 3 months In retail for 8 hours a day while under his care but he was derelict to this, had no clue. Got that image from my doctor. The final blow before the abandonment by this doctor in the middle of a pandemic, no less, was having him ask me why I couldn’t afford my insurance. He said, and I quote, “what’s wrong with you? Aren’t you a responsible adult?” No just a poor one. After this I was a little weary to see him again. When it came time to see him again I expressed this concern to his nurses and then Busby said I lied then refused to see me again.

My husband is Dr. Busby's patient and has been since we moved here. We see him on a regular basis for my husband's Dementia, which Dr. Busby diagnosed several years ago. Dr. Busby is patient, kind and allows my husband to talk about his concerns, helping him with his speech if needed. Dr. Busby always asks if I have questions offers suggestions as needed. It's comforting knowing Dr. Busby is close.
