Dr. Craig M Buettner 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.

We were extremely fortunate to find Dr. Buettner after my son was sick for 3 weeks! I was beyond upset and frustrated with our previous pediatrician and just wanted answers! Thankfully Dr. Buettner took him as a patient. Because of him, my sweet little boy is happy and well. He now has tubes in his ears (from our ENT) and he is back to his energetic little self. Dr. Buettner's staff is courteous and kind, always helpful on the phone, and we have never had a problem getting an appointment. We are so grateful to Dr. Buettner, his staff, and our friend who recommended him!
I've been a patient of Dr. Buettner's for the last 15 years, and I've never had one bad experience, nor bad thing to say about him. He is the most amazing doctor anyone could ever ask for, and is also one of the most sought after, and prestigious doctors in Tuscaloosa. He is also the head doctor who is on the sidelines for the Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team, and I highly recommend him to anyone from children to senior citizens.
