Dr. Buckner was not very thorough and overall seemed rush during my checkup. I did not feel like he genuinely cared or wanted to answer the questions I had for him. It was my first visit with him and would probablynot return after that visit. I spent more time in the waiting room than I did actually even in the examination room. He may have more affinity towards his recurring patients, but as a new patient I do not recommend going to see this doctor.

He gave a lot of referrals to other doctors and was not responsive when I had issues with a prescription, which resulted in serious health consequences for me. Did not show serious concern or care for my issues.

It is always a little nerve racking going to see a new doctor for the first time. I felt unbelievable comfortable.... more comfortable that I have with my past doctors which made it much easier to be evaluated correctly.

Overall the visit was okay and fairly middle-of-the-road: it could've been much worse, but it could've been better too. My appointment (first of the day) was scheduled for 9:15am. When I arrived at 9:00 the door was locked and nobody answered.The secretary / nurse arrived around 9:10 and opened the office up. Dr. Buckner was about 20-25 minutes late. He did call beforehand to let me know he would be late, but by then I was already well on my way to his office. There seemed to be some confusion with the secretary / nurse regarding what was needed for my visit. Even though I told her I wasn't there for a physical, she had me give a urine sample. When she started preparing to take my blood, Dr. Buckner intervened and told her that wasn't needed. The two of them seemed to be on completely different pages, and I was probably 30 seconds away from having my blood drawn unnecessarily. I'm guessing the urine sample was probably just chucked in the trash after she realized that wasn't needed either. Dr. Buckner seemed a bit brusque as well. Not outright mean, but not very friendly either. He quickly grew impatient when discussing the semantics of how I could send him the test results of previous blood work. Maybe he was just frazzled after getting a late start, but the entire visit did little to encourage a return trip. If you need to see a hematologist quickly, Dr. Buckner will work in a pinch. Otherwise, wait a week or so for a better experience elsewhere.

For the past several years I have seen Dr Jeffrey Buckner. My health is improved to a point where I am very happy. Dr. Buckner tells you what you need to know and explains anything unclear. He is uncommonly intelligent. He is the best.
