Five Stars

Dr. Buchanan is an excellent surgeon. He sincerely shows care for his patients and explains several options before rushing into any procedure. He worked with me for about a year on my ankle injury before recommending surgery. The surgery was very extensive and has healed nicely. He is a very busy doctor but always took enough time to answer any questions or concerns I had. I would definitely go back to him for any future issues.

Disappointed

After a long wait Dr. Buchanan seemed in a hurry. He did not show or explain X-rays of my broken foot. Dr. Buchanan did not offer a smaller boot, and flatly refused pain medicine to control my pain, but told me to take Tylenol. My new podiatrist addressed all issues, and took her time to show/explain my X-rays, give me a more comfortable boot, and make sure I was not in pain. Dr. Buchanan may be a good surgeon, but go elsewhere if you have something less profitable. To be fair there are other physicians in this group who I would highly recommend, but not Dr. Buchanan.
