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 together. Him and his wonderful team have been with me every step of the way. I'll be forever grateful. Dr. Bussell cares about his patients and he is a true angel.

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.

Dr. Bussell is ncredibly knowledgeable, friendly and sympathetic to patient concerns. He is always in a great mood and takes his time with patients, addressing any concerns you may have. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.
