Hated being at Harlem Hospital but loved Dr. Bussey

I encountered Dr. Bussey 10 years ago in my second pregnancy. He was magnificent (I do not enjoy male OB/GYN contact). He was attentive, explanatory when I needed and he ensured my induced labor resulted in his deliverey of my child. I haven't seen him in almost a decade (my child is ten). But it is NOT because I haven't been looking for him.

I love going to see Dr. Bussey.. Not only is he so easy to talk to but he takes time to make you feel at ease. Not to mention that my 2 year old daughter LOVES Dr. Bussey also. He not only talks to me but includes her in the visit and makes it fun for her.. Sometimes I can only get her to go is if I tell her she is going to see him then she is running out the door to the car! I would never want another doctor to deliver my children. Dr. Bussey is a blessing and a wonderful, wonderful doctor!!!!!

Calming, informative and supportive

I saw Dr Bussey in the er when I went there for a late night d&c during a miscarriage. He was friendly, courteous and extremely empathetic. He answered all my questions and even made me laugh. He was very personable and his confidence squashed my nervousness/fear. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an experienced ob/gyn with a fantastic bedside manner.
