Dr Buchanan is legitimately NOT a rheumatologist. He is an internist with some extra training in rheumatology (training done because he went with this wife to the states for her fellowship). Rheumatology is a 2 year Royal College certified fellowship that he does NOT have. Unfortunately, PG does not have an actual rheumatologist yet. In the meantime, do not see this doctor. Get a referral to a rheumatologist in another city. This man practices medicine with no care or attention to any of his patients and is an absolute liability.

I went to this doctor for several years. He did nothing for me but allow my RA to progress. I had to ask for an X-ray on my hips only to find out I was bone in bone. He also wanted to put me on medication they used in the 50's.. Thankfully I got another referral to the best of the best in Vancouver. They could not believe my condition. Seriously question his training and knowledge. Avoid this doctor at all costs in my opinion ..

Let's just say, if there was another rheumatologist in Prince George, I definitely would not be a patient of Dr. Buchanan. He always seems scattered, does not read patient files before appointment so wastes both the patient and his time, NEVER on time - usually at least one hour behind.

Really frustrated. I was brought into see him because my doctor thought the situation was "urgent." Dr. Buchanan kept calling me by the wrong name and seemed to think that I had an STD. I already have been tested within this past month and was cleared for any STD's. He ignored what I had to say and asked me the same question about three times. I don't think he reviewed my case before I arrived in his office. Wants me to come back in a few months. My question is why? So I can be told that I'm a hypochondriac a second time?

Horrible!!! I was so mad when I left! Do NOT see this man that calls himself a doctor if you can help it! He told me I was overweight when I was not by any means! My doctor got his report and was so mad too. She called him and reamed him out for what he said! Terrible all around! Not worth your time!

Waited 3 months to see him and well worth the wait. Thorough, knowledgable and a great listener. Provide information in an easily understandable manner. Finally, I have a definitive diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis. Highly recommend Dr. Buchanan.
