Dr. Bussell operated on me and removed my sigmoid colon due to complicated diverticulitis with a phlegmon abscess. He is the best. Everything was explained to me including exactly what he was going to do and the expected outcome. I recommend him heartily.

Dr. Bussell is an excellent doctor. When I was diagnosed with colon cancer I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Bussell explained everything to me, he was straight to the point but also provided me with comfort. I knew he was the doctor for me, he had a plan and we went on this wild roller coaster...more

I had complications with myy surgery and saw Dr. Bussell for a long time after surgery. He was good about listing what needed to be done post surgery but said he would call and never did. No one from the surgical center called me either.
