This is my second review and I've had a positive experience with both the doctor and his assistant - My recommendation- this is an office that is trying. Don't praise a doctors assistant over a doctor. Any one can have an opinion but they are both very good and you are doing nobody any favors by rating one against the other online. Everybody loses please don't do it.
I've been a patient of Dr Buesos for 3 years. I have had a pretty good over all experience except today which has forever changed my opinion of his office and staff. I have a 13 month old and occasionally cannot find a sitter for my various doctors appts. Today, was the first time I brought her to Dr Buesos. I made the first appointment of the afternoon thinking I would be able to get in and out. I was waiting for 30-45 minutes in the lobby before being called back. I told the nurse who worked me up that my daughter was about to get grumpy and she told me I had several people in front of me... Which I am completely fine with waiting my turn. So its almost an hour and fifteen minutes after my appointment time when a front desk associate comes into the room and rudely gripes me out and asks if I can quite my crying baby because everyone can hear her. I'm finally seen by the doctor which took less than 2 minutes. I then go to get my blood work done and am told by a fellow patient that she heard the front desk staff complaining and talking about me and my daughter. She then tells me that Dr Bueso does not like children in his office. I am still going to be using Dr Bueso as my endocrinologist but I thought I might give a heads up to my fellow mothers that this office and staff is not baby friendly. I would recommend making appointments with the PA Natalie, she is awesome :)
