Dr Buckmiller went above and beyond in his care for me as a patient. He took the time to review my medical history and age in addition to my test results and while I was a candidate for surgery, he recommended I first get tested to Rheumatoid Arthritis because someone of my age and occupation should not have carpal tunnel this severe. I appreciate this so much and I could tell he truly cared about me as a patient and wanted to do the best thing for me, regardless of what that was. he also followed up with me very quickly and explained everything thoroughly and made me feel comfortable and supported.

Dr. Buckmiller is the consummate pro. He clearly cared about my broken finger, and worked with me to accommodate some peculiar demands of my work schedule, balancing those needs with what he knew were the best ways to heal my two little fractures. His sense of humor is dry, funny and appropriate, and he just seems like an especially good, caring, diligent physician. And human being. Five stars.
