Specialties

Dr. Steven L Buckley has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Don't go here!

Smacked on his gum and mumbled. Didn't read chart because asked about wrong body part. Didn't obtain xray ordered so nothing to discuss but didn't bother to tell me. Was there for 2 hours waiting and only saw him last 2 min. Quite rude saying he doesn't do much with my son's condition and acted like didn't care or that I should. I asked for it to not be billable since there for 2 hours for no reason, but no...he had to have his $. Doesn't card about patient..just $.

scoliosis

Dr. Buckley and the staff have always treated us with respect, appointment wait times do not seem to be overly lengthy. Dr. Buckley is knowledgeable in his field and his staff have always worked well with my son. My chief complaints is in the way he seems to change his plan for my son every time we are in the office. I have even had to remind him of previous degrees of my sons scoliosis and basically tell him he was incorrect in what he was trying to convince me of. I definitely believe Dr. Buckley shouldn't be the only one providing recommendations for patients even if surgery isn't part of the plan.

Good Doctor

I have no complaints about Dr. Buckley. He performed a much needed surgery on my son's back. The surgery relieved the constant pain my son was experiencing. I don't care what other people say, this is a good doctor and I will definitely recommend him.

Two Stars

Easily the worst doctor ever. Went in he ordered a cat scan of my lower back. Went back for a check up, he had no idea who I was or that I've ever even been in that office. Spent maybe 10 minutes with him all together within 3 visits. Told me I had a form or spinal biffida, but really it was just chronic pain from years of sports and heavy lifting.
