Dr. Buchalter was very kind and took time to answer all my questions. This was my 6 year olds first surgery so we had a few. I was nervous after the reviews on here so I wanted to leave my own thoughts. He even called to check in on her the night of her surgery. I would definitely recommend him!!

I found Dr. Buchalter to be personable and thorough ; he treated me after I had been ill for a couple of months with several doctors, and antibiotics . My GP Nurse Practioner suggested I see an ENT, and scheduling was easy, the staff effiecient, and Dr. Buchalter diagnosed acid reflux with medication.I feel so much better. It feels good to feel better, and to recommend his services. to others.

Like most of the other reviews here; I had a terrible time seeing Dr. Buchalter. He simply does NOT take the time to properly attend to his patients needs, and symptoms. But don't worry, he'll certainly bill you correctly. I got charged $700 for him to look up my nose with a flashlight for all of 20 seconds to confirm that, yes, I do have polyps. Something I TOLD HIM I had. According to him, this counts as a "nasal endoscopy". Save your time and money. Stay Away.

I had been getting throat infections in my tonsils multiple times a year through college and some in HS. I told Buchalter it had been 4 major infections in the last 8 months and typically 3-4 per year for the past 4-5 years. He refused to consider removing them until I had 7 in one year and he started to leave the patient room after 1 minute. He wouldn't even look at my tonsils closely. Later I went to a Hopkins ENT who removed them within weeks and said they were long overdue to be removed.

I found to be unprofessional, rude and lacking the basic communication skills one would expect from a physician.

What a waste of money, doctor was rude, spent about 5 minutes listening to symptoms, looked in nose and than diagnosed with allergies. I asked if other symptoms (ear pain, dizziness, swollen neck, pain in chest) could all just be allergies and his expert advice......"jwho knows!" Well I was hoping you would know "doctor". What a joke.

I visited with Dr. Warren Buchalter today for snoring issues experienced over the last few years. I really can't believe I let myself walk out of his office without saying a word about how disappointed I was with the services that I received from him and his office. Dr. Buchalter spent maybe 1-2 minutes examining me and asking a few questions. He followed-up by saying everything looked good and then gave me a suggestion to sew a tennis ball in the back of my sleep shirt. Really!?

I had an episode of vertigo and suspect it was BPPV. My PCP suspected the same and sent me to this practice for epily manuver. He did some basic examination and said it was not BPPV and sent me away and I had to endure another 4 weeks of vertigo. I later went to a neurologist, who also thought it was positional vertigo. Not only Dr. Buchalter didn't make an accurate diagnosis, he was quite scornful when I told him about my research online. Well, if only he had a better diagnosis!
