Good and Understanding

I know Dr Buckland through Paoli Family Medicine for the last 20 years and in those time he treated me for many sickness relating to influenza. He is very good with explaining in detail and gives the due time that it takes to complete the diagnosis. I always go to Dr. Buckland despite the fact that the other doctors who are good as well, the primary reason being the time he willingly put. Pannir Alexander

Lousy Doc

I went to my Dr Buckland with the onset of my disease conditions about 4 years ago. Not only was he dismissive, he completely missed my diagnosis. He did not listen to me as I explained my symptoms, which were classic hyperparathyroidism and could have been spotted in the blood tests over the two year period I visited him. He offered to treat me for depression which was certainly not the cause of my issues but a mere symptom. I did not follow his advice, did my own research and ended up going to the right specialist, who determined that I had hyperparathyroidism and required surgery. The specialist was surprised that Dr Buckland did not spot it. Last year, I went for my annual physical with Dr Buckland, who just glanced over the doctor reports. He told me to "fill out the lab test form on my own" as he "knew nothing about what I needed." In a recent appointment, Dr Buckland was extremely rude and refused to order tests to help monitor my condition. He actually asked me if I "had a diagnosis for hypoparathyroidism," and "if I had surgery to remove the adenoma." I suppose he didn't even bother to read the report from the specialist nor was he noticing at my throat scar. He told me that I should have gone to one of his "friends" instead of the specialist I chose. He refused to order routine blood work to check hormone levels for me citing that he is "not treating nor knows anything about the disorder I suffer from" so why should [he] help out. This was blood tests, not medication or treatment- just monitoring to determine changes from baseline, and tests that in looking at my records, had been previously ordered even by him. He made me come in to see him just to argue with me of the fact that he refused to help me get the testing I needed to determine my condition and then charged me for his time. Considering he was my primary care doctor and all of my medical history records reside with him, I expected him to want to help. Not the case. I never felt like I had his full attention. I always felt like I had to do my own diagnosis.
