Specialties

Dr. Mark Buzzard has the following 3 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Buzzard is one of a kind! He treats your entire person, mind, body and soul! I'll never be able to replace him and I'd bet no one else will either. I've lost my very best friend! He centers and grounds me. Now how could I ever expect to find one like him? I won't and I am grieving! I've been with him for over fifteen years and I'll go to the end of my life because of him! I HURT FOR YOU!!

Abandonment Specialist

I was a patient of Dr. Buzzard's for years, trusted him and thought he cared. Then I get a call that his office is permanently closed...no explanation, no opportunity to pick up my records, no one even answering the phone. More importantly, no consideration of respect. What are all of us supposed to do when he abandons his practice with no medication continuation, no referrals, no decency. Something deeply shady is going on there, and he's clearly not man enough to be honest and tell his patients what's going on, or try to help us on his way out. Shame on you, Doctor Buzzard.

I've been seeing Dr Buzzard since he was an intern. and he is always kind and accommodating to me. he never pushes drugs unless we discuss together the pros and cons of the drug. I was hospitalized 3 times for hurting myself and he stuck by me through all that time. I like him so much that I do recommend him to others. on the negative side I don't like he does not take insurance but I do understand why which is complicated. he has never push drugs on me but then I am a conscientious patient and take control of my own treatment with Dr Buzzard supporting me. I am his oldest patient now and have changed offices with him several times. he has been nothing except wonderful to me. if you can afford him, he is worth it. I am where of his probation and have researched other psychiatrists and have found that most of them have at least 1 probationary experience their record so I am NOT concerned.

Good Doctor, Strange Policies

A nice, experienced doctor who really does seem to care for the most part about helping you feel your best. Those without insurance, beware: This doctor no longer accepts any type of insurance whatsoever. He's up front about this though. The one thing I find very odd about his system of billing though is this: You will be charged based on your level of "intensity," which is determined by the duration of your appointment, the number of diagnoses you have, and the number of prescriptions you require. I can certainly understand charging more or less depending on the length of the appointment, but I find the pricing by diagnoses and prescriptions to be incredibly odd and somewhat inappropriate. Should he not just figure that into his overall cost of running the practice? Making appointments is easy as long as you do it far enough in advance. Getting prescriptions filled can be a nightmare with his very disorganized staff. The doctor himself is good though.
