The Best Family Practice Doctor in Connecticut

I have worked in the health care field and at hospitals all of my life and Dr Buckley is tops in his field. I work in NYS and my insurance does not even cover my visits, but I stick with him because he is the best around.

Dr. Buckley is what you expect a doctor to be. He spends time with his patients and listens to accurately determine symptoms and concerns; he is courteous, warm yet professional; and he follows up after any kind of testing. Administratively, his office does not "double-book" and any waiting time is minimal. I can't say enough and have and will continue to recommend him to family and friends.
