Specialties

Dr. Philip C Buescher has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

on my first visit dr. Buescher asked many questions and was interested in my special breathing problems. So far the best pulmonologist I've had.

I agree with the other person on bedside manner. I read the glowing article that one of Dr.Buescher's students wrote about him, but the side of him I saw was very different. When other doctors werent around,he raised his voice and in my opinion, he appeared to get angry with people. If one of us asked an extra question, he would glare impatiently. Imagine you are you are desperate for answers, exhausted and scared out of your mind and youve waited all day, watching your loved one suffering. Dr. B. flies in and does not even look at you. You ask a question, he still doesnt look you in the eye; he just keeps writing. He answered us with dismissive contempt. He talked down to us like we were stupid pests. I will never understand how a doctor could be that glaringly rude to people who were in as much trouble as we were at that moment. He would actually talk down to,raise his voice to,glare at, get angry with and rush people whose loved one was incredibly sick. He would and he did with us. This is the truth as we experienced it.
