WOW my experience mirrors the other unsatisfied patients. He should NOT have certification in PAIN MANAGEMENT. He doesn't follow any logical procedures. You question him on treatment and he will STOP pain medication only when you request a refill do you find out he won't prescribe another month. It's been 14 months since I got hurt and he won't sign ANY papers that say my condition has lasted/will last at least 12 months. By him not signing I can't show my injury caused my financial problems.

He does not care if he helps your pain and stops pain medicine unexpectantly. Dec '17 had surgery-burst fracture, 12 days in hospital. Dibilitating pain was in different region of back, he blamed on surgery, put false info on after visit papers"...addressed Arthritis of lower back..." never used this word at visit. I asked about he demeaned me and claimed "arthritis" is term used for general PAIN. I do anything- move, turn, bend and pain increases, but no help from "PAIN MANAGEMENT".

I am so frustrated with Dr. Buck!!!!! I was recomended to see him by my neurosurgeon who suggested that a stimulator be implanted for severe nerve pain. That was nearly 2 years ago! He WILL NOT give me anything for pain (I thought he was a pain doctor?). He keeps giving me shots in my back that do not work!!!! It seems as though he is dodging the surgery that I was sent to him to get! I would not recommend this doctor to anyone! I have decided to go to another doctor.

I cannot describe how Dr Buck has failed me. Both as a Dr and head of his office. He has little to no control of couple members of staff. And after his staff worked me into complete panic attack that I ejected her from exam room. He was more protective over his staff than hearing what his staff actually did wrong. After his nurse was removed from my case by me. He all the sudden decreased my pain meds instantly with full removal of narcotic in 85 days. Basically dropping me as a patient. F-

Dr Buck does not listen to your concerns nor does he explain what he's going to do. I had major bruising and Trauma from car accident and I asked him for some kind of pain medication and every visit 4 year and a half he said we'll talk about it. Well we never talked about it. I had RSD in my feet, back and major neck pain from Whiplash and concussion. H never sat in a chair to talk to me until I told him I was unhappy about a procedure I received. I went home in tears many a time from his office

Dr Buck is very understanding and respectful of my wishes. I had an emergency cervical fusion which left me with very limited mobility and a great deal of pain and numbness. I didnt want any medication that contained narcotic and he was able to ease some of my pain without narcotics. I have come to terms that I will never be the same but I am grateful that I found some relief without having to take narcotics.
