Ratings for Dr. John R. Buckley
I was a patient of dr Buckley for several years. He neglected to inform me that I had an RA level. I spent a few more years trying to figure out what was wrong with my body. He was my father's dr - lack of attention in his medical issues resulted in his early death. He was also my niece's dr. She went to dr Buckley for migraines. He never did any tests. Write scrips for narcotic pain meds. She died a few years later from overprescribing med to her. The court case resulted from (5) patients who did not receive adequate care and subsequent deaths. He was sanctioned heavily as a first time investigation. He was addicted to narcotic pain meds. His sanctions can be viewed on the internet. It's worth a read before you put your life into his hands.
I have been a patient of Doctor Buckley for well over twenty years.He has helped me with several serious health issues.Refered me to top specialists.I owe Dr.Buckley my life.He is also my sons Doctor per my recommendation.I would trust Dr.Buckley with my most precious relation(my son).Always takes time to listen to my concerns.I give Doctor Buckley my highest confidence.
Dr. Buckley has only been my Doctor for a few years, in those few years I have received phone calls on Sundays and evenings to give me updates that are not even alarming. He is a very caring doctor and I have never had a doctor be so thorough and spend time talking to me to make sure he has gone through every question I may have. I suggest that Dr. Buckley should teach other doctors how to treat their patients. The staff at his office is always very helpful, busy but helpful. They always find a way to get me in the same day. Never. ever. switching. I cant say enough about the man!
Dr. John Buckley always called to let you know about your lab results, personally. He went to the hospital to check on my husband after his surgery even though another doctor did the surgery. He called our home phone to check up on my husband, after he was discharged from the hospital. He is a very caring doctor. He listens to you during your office visit and observes how you talk, and your physical posturing to evaluate if there might be a problem. He does this observation without you even knowing he is evaluating your well being. He has been a great doctor for the13+ years we have been his patients.
Dr Buckley was my fathers physician. He was told he had cancer too late. With 3wks to live after the diagnosis, Dr Buckley asked him if he wanted to die during surgery or horribly from the cancel. Quite a choice he gave him. Dad passed away 3wks 1day. From ruptured apendix. Buckley did not do any tests etc to determine what was wrong, just let him go as he was going to die anyways. It was very painful. He was my dr for a short time. Did not do tests, etc - would say - go home, wait a few days and call me if you do not have any improvement. When i demanded a test for RA, it was done. No one ever called me to let me know the results. Finally when i asked, i was told it was normal. Two yrs later - i found out the results from a rheumatologist. RA strong. Was also my niece's dr - wrote thousands of opiate scrips, she died. please, please rethink going to this dr.
WOW, just read the review (below) dated 3-5-10. Just wanted to state that I completely disagree with that person's assessment. I switched to Dr. Buckley because of his caring attitude towards his patients. He is the only doctor that I know that goes beyond the call of duty. During a relatives sickness, he allowed us to bring her in on a weekend, visited her at the hospital and called her at home to check up on her. I do not know of another family doctor who does that.
My son & I have both been going to Dr. Buckley for years. He is fantastic!! He will listen to you & not rush you thru your appt. After my son got out of the hospital, Dr. Buckley would call us to see how he was doing. He is very thourough & will only have you schedule another appt. if he thinks it's really necessary. I would never consider change doctors.
I have been seeing Dr. Buckley for years and he's always been very helpful and diligent. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great GP/PCP. I can't imagine going to another internist. He's been very responsive to my needs and he is accommodating and works with me on my health problems. He provides valuable feedback and insight, and I know I am in good hands with him every day. Thank you, Dr. Buckley!
