Great Doctor

I Chose Dr. Buchanan after my old MD moved away. He has been great. Has always taken me in the same day I called with problems. Spends time with me and discusses options with me. Does not seem to think that losing weight is only answer to all my problems like old MD did. This man has common sense and great bedside manners. Recently he probably saved my life after going to him with what seemed like gas pains in my chest. He ran EKG and X-rays. Even though all looked good he sent me to Hospital for one more blood test to rule out heart attack. Test showed my Troponin level was at 40. Having major attack in right main. After Quadruple bypass I have him and many more to thank for their care that got me through this. Reccomend him highly.
