Dr. Buxton was very knowledgable and thorough in his explanation and exam, but he also seemed distracted. He stepped out when he dilated my pupils, saying he would be back in 10 minutes, and told his receptionist he was going forlunch and came back 30 minutes later. He also stepped out during my exam to tell his receptionist to make a dinner reservation for him. The wait time was incredible, I waited for over 30 minutes to be seen, and then between all of the different exams they did during my visit, I waited anywhere between 10-15 minutes. I ended up spending 2.5 hours there for what could easily have been 45.

My visit was just fine as usual. All the girls are very friendly and helpful with whatever questions you may have. Dr Buxton is a Gentleman. Easy to talk to, will answer any questions and address any issues you may haveand does not rush you. I started seeing his dad Dr Jorge Buxton a little over 30 years ago, who by the way was also a great doctor and a fine Gentleman.

Dr. Buxton is very professional. His demeanor can be a bit brusque, and he is a bit quick to get you in and out, but I appreciate that since I'm often in a hurry when I visit. He always answers anyquestions I may have and does a thorough examination.

I came in for contact lenses, glasses, and a general eye exam. Dr. Buxton had a warm bedside manner, was thorough, and was clearly extremely knowledgable. He talked me through what he was seeing, and gave me great advice for howto best care for my eyes (including nutrition tips). Thrilled with the visit.
