Dr. Buckley is the best. He always makes me the patient feel important at ease.
His concern and treatment is top notch always.
After 3 bouts of ischemic colitis, Dr. Buckley insisted further testing and more testing. When I resisted, he insisted.
Finally, the problem was discovered, a blood disorder. The ischemia could have easily been a heart attack or stroke.
He's the best!
You are the best doctor I have ever been to!
