1. I´m a little uncertain about one of my follow-up procedures, but I think it will work its way out. 2. The doctor more or less let things slide from before, and I considered looking for another doctor, but the I figured I´d give her anther try because I liked her. This time I felt she got it that my problem is serious, so I will stick with her.
Empathetic, knowledgeable and a terrific doctor.
I have referred others to Dr. Bucher; she is very thorough, caring, and concerned about whatever issue/ailments you bring up to her. She is positive in offering solutions and I never feel like she´s in a hurry when I come in to see her -- even though I know she has many patients.
I´ve been traveling back and forth from China to see Dr. Boucher! As far as I am concerned she is "the" best!
Dr. Bucher is just excellent. She is very attentive to my/our questions. I would send any friend to her!
Enjoyed having a resident too

I love Dr. Bucher and have total faith in her. I am so impressed with the way she contacts me personally, like when she called me with my test results on Monday, and how she participated in my treatment for a prior UTI when she was on maternity leave in May of this year.
I like Dr. Bucher very much. She took the time to explain things, answer questions, and listened to my concerns. I also appreciate the follow-up communication we´ve had.
Joy Bucher is an excellent doctor. I have been a patient for 5+ years. She listens, invites your participation in planning care, both short term and long term care. I hope to be her patient long term.
Dr. Bucher is much like Dr. David Patterson, now practicing medicine at Swedish. I asked her to talk with my wife and me about my weight problem. She did and offered genuine advice and I am following it. She is a most outstanding doctor. My wife suggested that I go to her as I was not pleased with pleased with a previous experience with another physician. Again in my opinion, Dr . Bucher and Dr. David Patterson, have exceptional skills in working with people.

Excellent provider - Dr. Bucher is the best!
I have a lot of admiration for Dr. Joy Bucher, especially as the result of her treatment of my father, who has been in her care for a number of years.
In my estimation Dr. Boucher has gone over and beyond in working to help resolve my "burning feet syndrome" which I have been suffering with for the past two years. She is always prepared and has made me feel that there is hope at the end of the tunnel. By far she is one of the better doctors that I have ever had!

I love DR. Bucher. She´s the only doctor I´ve ever had who doesn´t make me feel rushed, gives me plenty of useful information, and never brushes off any of my concerns.
Dr. Bucher is more than a pleasure to deal with for both myself and my husband.
Dr Bucher is an excellent provider. i have only being seeing her for about 6 months but I am thoroughly impressed. She takes time to talk with you, never seems to be in a hurry, is knowledgeably, approachable, and has certainly instilled confidence in me. I am so pleased that I have her as a provider
Dr. B is on time, very smart and very approachable. We feel very fortunate to have her as our physicians. #10. We do.
Really pleased with Dr. Bucher.
Dr Bucher has always come into my appointments well prepared and knowledgeable about all the facets of my care. She considers what is going on w my autoimmune care, with Dr Buckner, which is usually my primary issue. She is very holistic in the sense that she puts things together in a way that she catches things my specialists would not see. I appreciate her intelligent and compassionate care.
My Doctor is great and i have not only been pleased with my own care, but impressed by the care that she gives to my family members who she also cares for.
Dr. Bucher is very good at giving a complete picture and options. I really enjoy having her as my doctor.
It was the first time visit to Dr. Bucher, so in truth, I´ll have to wait & see, but on my first visit to her I would say it´s very good.
Always the best.
