The amazing Dr. Buchalter show details The amazing Dr. Buchalter
by Joea McNeil on May 28th, 2016

Dr. Buchalter is absolutely amazing. I work in a school as well as teach drivers Ed. In the summer. Therefore I have a pretty tight schedule. And live about an hour and a half from Pensacola. Dr. Buchalter always gets me in when it is most convenient for me. He has been treating me and my mom for several years and neither of us would ever consider seeing anyone else. I have is the most compassionate Doctor I have ever been to. He does everything in his power to ease the constant pain I experience. He makes me feel like I am the only patient he sees. He is very attentive to all of my needs and takes time to answer any questions that I have. He also personally follows up on me after I have a procedure. There is no doubt in my mind that he sincerely cares about his patients and wants to give them as pain free life as possible.

Relieves pain and improves quality of life show details Relieves pain and improves quality of life
by Betty Holman RN on Mar 16th, 2016

Dr. Buchalter is a legend in his profession. I am an RN that was suffering debilitating spinal pain 1 year ago after 3 spinal surgeries. Through multiple modalities he restored my function and quality of life! Highly recommend him to anyone suffering. What do you have to lose?

by Lisa Marie Donndelinger on Nov 18th, 2015

Dr. Buchalter is an amazing doctor! He has the best bedside manner and is great to explain things so you understand them. I have been a patient for ten years.

He is the best doctor ever. He really cares about his patients and does not want anyone to suffer. His bedside manners are tops in my book. He is an A Doctor through and through.

I wish all doctors of all fields had his bedside manner and personal touch! He is one special guy! When you leave there, he makes you feel like he really cares and that he truly is worried and truly hopes that he has helped your condition improve. Most doctors just see you as another name on a piece of paper who needs a script and couldn't tell you what you came in for the last visit. Not Dr. Buchalter! He makes you feel important and special and he intends to fix you!

Pain medicine that actually works show details Pain medicine that actually works
by Ray Cunningham on Nov 11th, 2014

I have had back problems for 40 years, handled by prescriptions , until spine deteriorated requiring more. Not bad enough for extensive operations, my Orthopedist recommended pain medicine in 2010. I have gone to several over the years with limited success. Medical decisions made by Dr Buchalter since first seeing him in 2010, have changed and significantly improved my quality of life. He has made a difference in the things I can physically do today that before I could not do. He has slowed down the aging process for me.

Life-Saving, incredible Pain Management Doctor show details Life-Saving, incredible Pain Management Doctor
Aug 15th, 2014

Dr. Buchalter is the best pain management doctor I have ever seen or heard of in my life: a true gift to those of us with pain management issues or pain-related issues. I was seriously injured over a year ago and no doctors could figure out what was wrong with me, despite pain that clearly indicated something was terribly wrong and would have proved debilitating for the rest of my life had I not met Dr. Buchalter and two other physicians. Dr. Buchalter, along with these two other physicians out of countless doctors I saw around the United States, saved my future. It is as simple and profound as that. I am forever blessed that Dr. Jeff Buchalter came into my life. As a physician, Dr. Buchalter has a remarkable bedside manner. He listens to your every word and very closely. He asks questions that are meaningful and important to solving even the most complex medical issues. He genuinely cares about his patients and you can tell it from the day you meet him. Dr. Buchalter is also a scholar with an interest in discogenic pain (i.e. pain coming from discs in your spine), a field that very few doctors are trained in or learn about in medical school. I believe this is one of the primary reasons why other doctors could not properly diagnose me and why Dr. Buchalter was able to do so (and took the time to do so). He is a leader in his field and given his expertise, he is easily one of the top 50 or top 25 pain management doctors in the United States. If you have pain-related issues or a complex medical problem related to your back like me, please go see Dr. Buchalter. I promise it is the best decision you can make to get the help you need.

He is knows what he is doing and doesn't give up until he has helped you with your pain. He is the nicest, most caring doctor i have ever met. He is busy because he is the best around, so dont complain if you have to wait a bit because he works at three different locations and everyone lives him. He has helped me alot, i was so deppressed with all my pain issues i thought there was no help but Dr Buchalter is proving me wrong!

Dr. Buchalter gave me my life back. He is the best Doctor and took the time to actually find out what was causing my headaches that I had been having for almost three years. I had been to more Doctors than I can count and nobody could find out what was causing them. He is wonderful and the best Doctor ever!!!!

I have to say I don't give reviews one way or the other. I've been a patient of Dr. Buckhalter's for almost a year. His is by far the best doctor I've ever seen in my entire life. He has it all knowledge, understanding, patience, care and the ability to perform delicate injections better than the best of them. He's an Excellent Professional and Personable doctor. I highly recommend if your in pain he'll handle you with care and expertise.

Best doctor ever!! show details Best doctor ever!!
by Tracy Posehn on Feb 11th, 2013

Dr. Buchalter is the most caring compassionate doctor I have ever! I have Chronic pain and have seen several pain specialist in California where I came from before Pensacola! Everything was difficult and hard work to get anything done until I met Dr. Buchalter! He truly cares for his patients and seems to really want us out of pain! He also did a shot on my husband that has changed his life! He's out of pain for the first time in 10 years! He is working the hardest of any doctor I have had in 15 years of my chronic pain that wants me well and just not on pills! When I first came to Pensacola I asked everyone with pain who the best doctor was, everyone said Dr. Jeff Buchalter! I'm an RN and have worked with 100's of doctors, Dr. Buchalter is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever known, and has the sweetest best side manner!

Dr. Buchalter is the best doctor I have seen in a long time. He takes time to really talk to me to find out if what we are doing is working and to discuss all the options available to me. He is prompt to respond to questions and concerns I have. His concern and compassion are unsurpassed by any other doctor I have seen.

My wife has been going to Jeff L. Buchalter since 1994 for pain management on her back. He has been a life saver. With out his help I feel I would have lost my wife. She could not live with the pain she was having. We have never had any problem with getting the help she needs

Doctor Buchalter is the kindest and most wonderful doctor . His staff is as well . The only problem a pt may have with his staff is if they don't followw the rules and or are seeking drugs . they will not give early refills and you must be responsible for keeping your apts . We are grown ups I don't think that is to much to ask .

Jul 27th, 2011

Dr. Buchalter is a very caring dr., doesn't give enough time in office, and tends to cut you off when you talk, but overall knows his stuff and has helped me tremendously. However, his staff, specifically, his nurse Kathy are rude and unsympathetic. They never return phone calls, and forget gettin a prescription refilled, it won't happen until you can get into seeing him, and he is schedule out 6-8 weeks in advance. In the meantime, you are in pain.Hopefully, he will get a new and improved staff, I won't be there to find out. Searching for another dr. ASAP.
