Dr. Buchen is a most thorough and careful clinician. He ordered a biopsy of a lump on my wife which had been dismissed as a cyst by another doctor. It turned out to be malignant but easily removed and suppressed. All follow ups have been negative. If not for Dr. Buchen's expert diagnosis the results could have been catastrophic. He is excellent.

Waiting over 4 hours is insane. Rude. I would have left but have been seeing this Dr. for a few years and have to be diligent about skin issues.

Dr. Buchen is a good doctor. He is one the only doctors that I have that takes the time to actually explain what's wrong with me, he writes the name down on a piece of paper and says go home, look it up, research it, learn about it. I like that about him and I appreciate it because a lot of time I walk out of an appointment wondering what did that doctor just say is wrong with me.

Dr. Buchen treats you as though you were the only patient he has that day ; even though he has a full waiting room. He allays your fears about that curious skin condition, and instills confidence that he will do whatever is necessary to heal you. A superb doctor and a mensch. I highly recommend him without qualification. n.b. :If you see him at the end of one of his very long days, he will show you all the consideration, focus, and expertise given to his first patient of the day.

Dr. Buchen is the absolute best. He is extremely knowledgable and takes his time with his patients. He explains and makes sure you are satisfied and is extremely patient. I have recommended him to several people and they all are extremely happy with him. Three thumbs up for Dr. Buchen and his staff. They are the best!
A Real Debbie Downer

Dr. Buchen is efficient but is condescending at times. Also, the time spent in the waiting room is insane (3 to 4 hours) regularly, after waiting several months for the appointment to arrive. But the thing I discovered which upsets me most is that there is at least one person on his staff (a medical assistant ) who reportedly does sneaky spiteful things to patients. I see Dr. Buchen for a particular condition and receive prescription medication for it. The doctor and staff are well aware that it is very important that I get this medication. On one occasion, after I had to reschedule an appointment due to illness, I was unable to receive my medication because the pharmacy informed me that the personnel at the doctor's office didn't put it through. Upon inquiring into this matter further, a staff member at the doctor's office informed me that this medical assistant was heard making derogatory comments about me and seemed to take offense that I rescheduled my appointment. Also, it was reported to me that this medical assistant was the person responsible for arranging that I receive my next prescription of medicine. With the aforementioned in mind, I feel certain that this medical assistant saw to it that I did not receive my medication, which caused me much suffering. I was appalled to have learned of this, especially since I always maintained civility in all of my dealings with this doctor and his staff. I consider this the most disturbing, unprofessional conduct I have ever encountered at a doctor's office. To think that an employee in a doctor's office would stoop to petty spiteful acts toward a patient for any reason reveals an individual who is clearly unfit to serve in a helping profession.

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Buchen at all. I went to see him about dark spots (not rashes) on my legs. He performed a biopsy and then two weeks later diagnosed me with Lupus. I became extremely upset and emotional upon hearing this devastating, life-changing news. Two PA's had to practically carry me out of the office because I was crying so much I could hardly stand. Before I was helped out of the office, I asked Dr. Buchen what the next steps would be. He wrote "LUPUS" on a piece of paper and told me to Google it!! I was appalled. I could not believe how cold and unprofessional he was. I refused to see him again. Oh, and after additional tests performed by a different Dermatologist, I was told that I do NOT have Lupus. Thanks, Dr. Buchen.
Extremely articulate and thorough...fabulous bedside manner.

I have been a patient of Dr. Buchen's for over 10 years....he is the only Dermatologist I trust for treatment of my skin conditions and surgical removal of my pilar cysts. I hold him in the highest professional regard.
