Ratings for Dr. Joel E. Buchanan
I have been a patient of Dr B for over 10 years and have always found him to be caring and takes time to explain whatever questions I have. I can call the office any time and know I will get A + service. Every referral to a specialist has also been spot on since I trust him I trust who her refers me to. ( of course with a healthy dose of Google search) the office staff is great...never had to wait over 10 minutes and its never taken more than 1 try to draw my blood.
Dr Buchanan always takes the time required to understand my condition, provide treatment and answer any questions I may have. He is everything you are looking for in a PCP and will refer you to specialists as needed. In my case he provided the specialists and tests to diagnose and treat my esophageal cancer. I would not be in remission today if Dr Buchanan had not provided such excellent care.
Would not recommend this Dr. or his associates. I was misdiagnosed, diagnosis was celulitious.... Ended up week later in emergency room... It was a blood clot. That was an associate Dr Raffin. Also, dosage on a depressant upped, I told him at the time if the office visit, I was feeling better. Never really checked on the reason for taking the medication, I had been put on it by my previous doctor. Doesn't listen. I am not comfortable with his judgement.
Whole family has been going for years. Followed from Shelby. Not had any "bad" experiences, but they could be a little more personable, for sure. Wish Dr. Buchanan could be more descriptive, when explaining conditions! It's kinda more like "here...take this..because I said so". Other than that, not too bad. Had much worse!
