Dr. Buff R Greider has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Thoughtful and Comforting but Direct and Effective

I went to Dr. Buff Greider for extreme upper back pain. I was sure it was a herniated disc, but he wasn't so quick to jump to that conclusion. He listened carefully, examined me thoroughly, then asked some very specific questions. I was surprised at how insightful he was - as though he had the same condition. He had me back to health in about 48 hours with some simple stretches, over the counter meds, and hot / cold treatments.

needs interpersonal skills

Non-stop talking, will not allow you to get a word in edgewise. will take anything that you say as an insult and as a challenge to his medical knowledge and diagnostic acumen! Does not listen to patients experiences or symptoms.will not go back.
