What People Say About Dr. Thomas Buchanan, MD

He told me after only two visits that my symptoms were all in my head. He left me crying in his office with my husband and I in shock. After 5 years of progressing symptoms and finally getting a referral to a neurologist I was hopeful, to say I'm disappointed is a understatement.

He is a very good doctor. He doesn’t just rush in and out. He is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything regardless of how long it takes. I’ve suffered from horrible migraines almost daily for 35+ years. . I have been going to Dr Buchanan for 5 months and with different procedures and medications , the migraines occur 2-3 times a week now. He is an excellent doctor. Definitely 5 Star ?? ?? ?? ?? ??

At first we were very pleased with this doctor. But he made a bad decision that resulted in my child having a life/death situation. I'm very disappointed in how is office operates and getting messages to him and his nurses is very easy but they NEVER return calls or emails. We were billed incorrectly and our insurance doesn't want to cover something they billed incorrectly. His office has threatened us with collections rather than fixing their errors. Very disappointing.
