After my life being turned upside down six months ago, as I developed some unknown condition, a long chain of many different doctors finally led me to Dr. Buxton. He is one of the few doctors I have seen him really endeavored to figure out what was Underlying my condition. He has been thoughtful contemplative and very helpful. He has always been kind and compassionate and remembers my history well. All I still don't have a concrete diagnosis it makes such a difference to have a kind physician.

Dr. Buxton is outstanding. He goes to the mat, even contacting my other doctors if he feels it is important to my care. He responds quickly to emails (I don't use MyChart) and fits me in for urgent matters. I usually don't try to go through his staff except to make appointments, but they are very helpful if I explain any need for urgency. In that case a patient should ask to be overbooked if his schedule is full and staff will then ask him what to do. Works for any doctor.

Dr. Buxton is outstanding. He has managed my condition very well and I've been happy with his care. HOWEVER, it is next to impossible to get in to see him. If you have an acute/urgent issue, forget about it. His office will say with a smile that they'll try to fit you in for the next available opening/cancellation... but that's not going to be for at least 6-8 weeks - likely more. You have to make routine visits at least 3-4 months in advance of when he wants to see you.
