Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Buckner.. simply great! He took the time to understand me and my history and then clearly explained everything. Was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a Dr.
I’m a new patient and very pleased .
Dr. Buckner continues to be an absolute pleasure. Top notch.
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.
I was recommended to Dr. Buckner by a friend and so glad I was. He’s an excellent and affable physician.
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.
He was very cordial and easy to talk to, He was an attention listening and repeat your concern and talk in simple terms which was clear.
A Gentleman, who answers questions clearly and sensibly, guides you, and doesn’t cause panic! Fantastic chap.
Went for Physical. Very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. Definitely recommend.
Terrific advice. Made me feel very comfortable. Treated me with respect and explained everything in great detail. So glad I went to Dr. Buckner for my medical problem.
Easy first time visit to Dr. Buckner's office accommodating my needs with a good manner and professionalism.
Dr. Buckner was very professional and treated me with respect and courtesy. He spent a good deal of time explaining my condition to me and the various treatment options. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a top quality hematologist.

Good as always.
He's great! I've been going to him for years (found him theough ZD) and he's never steered me wrong. I highly recommend him.
He is very knowledgable. Got straight to the point and referred me for infusion treatments. Can't wait to feel better again and have energy. Thank you!
My visit with Doctor Buckner was once again fantastic. He is so kind and reassuring and his hours are extremely convenient unlike many doctors I've gone to in the past. I highly recommend him!
I've been seeing Dr. Buckner as my primary physician for about 20 years. He provides very good, well thought out answers to all my questions. He has provided very good referrals for any specialist that has been required. I can highly recommend Dr. Buckner!
Professional, courteous and cautious. Excellent breadth of knowledge.
Omg. Just the smell in the office alone.
Very friendly and conversational and the perfect fit for my annual physical and anemia test. Receptionist was also lovely. Comfortable, spacious office.
Dr. Buckner is the best. He's considerate *and* prompt. I never once felt rushed or overlooked. His office staff is friendly and helpful as well!
Excellent and informative, as usual!
Speedy, professional and helpful.
Dr Buckner met me right away and worked with to figure out what I needed and actually listened to what I had to say. I will surely be going back
Great bedside manner - would recommend.
A fine G.P. Everything a patient could hope for.
Very prompt, efficient office. Small office because he is a sole practitioner. Does not feel like a walk-in clinic. General consult was thorough, lab results were quick. No complaints.
great doctor helped me very much
Dr. Buckner and his staff were extremely professional and did an amazing job making my wife feel comfortable despite her general apprehension towards anything involving needles. They were able to see us right away and saw us through all the necessary exams as quickly and painlessly as possible. We’re now stationed overseas, but would happily continue to receive his care should we return to the NYC area.
It was optimal.
Straightforward, informed, articulate, great listener. So glad he's my doctor.
As always he is the best!
Good doctor with professional attitude and knowledge. The front desk's staff is very efficient and patient.
Honestly, I have never been more disappointed in someone in the medical field, ever. I made an appointment with him because he was one of the few doctors with a same day appointment. It was the worst move I've ever made and I'll do way more research from here on out now that I see what happens when I don't! No one answers the phone in his office, ever, and although I had already paid multiple copays to see him, every email response I received basically stated "If you would like to talk, make an appointment and pay your copay". He was basically holding my blood test results hostage. It was awful and I was in shock that a doctor would care so little about their patients well-being. Honestly, steer clear of this doctor, it will create a mess for you in the long run. Much better to wait a few days for a good doctor to have an appointment available.
Dr. Buckner was great- very kind, friendly, and willing to listen to my concerns. My appointment was scheduled for 9:30am, but I was seen immediately when I arrived at 9:18- very convenient and literally no wait time! At first I was worried that Dr. Buckner seemed dismissive of my concerns with a past medical issue, but then I realized it was only because he had every reason to not be alarmed by it- I have recovered and he was able to explain to me (with scientifically sound reasoning, which he clearly described in lay terms) why it happened and that there wasn't an underlying issue that I needed to be furthered worried about. I've seen many doctors for this issue, and he is the first one who could actually give any sort of real reason as to why it might have happened. Dr. Buckner doesn't simply dish out treatments or medications without reasons- only when necessary. I love that he isn't one to over-prescribe procedures. It's hard to find a good PCP in NYC, so I feel very lucky and will see him again!
Professional and compassionate as always.
I've seen Dr. Buckner twice now and both times it has been a great experience. I was called into his office at my exact appointment time, and he listened to my concerns and diagnosed my ADHD accurately. Previously I tried to make appointments with other doctors in NYC about my problem, and they all wanted me to come into their office multiple times a month and pay outrageous out of pocket prices in order to be treated by a nurse. It was a real relief to find a doctor who accepts insurance and cares about their patients, rather than trying to take advantage of them. The medicine I was prescribed has significantly improven my life. If you believe you have ADHD, I highly recommend Dr. Buckner.
Thorough To the point Kind
Very prompt; no waiting. Straight talking health advice.
Took weeks to get a response via email or phone for a prescription.
My GP for years, and now my husband's as well.
Very quick & efficient. Listened to all my concerns and was very re-assuring.
Super comfortable and easy to talk to. No complaints.
Doctor Buckner is the best! Polite and efficient
It seemed that Dr Buckner wasn't rushed and spent time with me. He was very professional and discussed my concerns thoroughly. He completed a short but comprehensive examination, which reassured me. I liked his manner in dealing with the circumstance. I left the surgery happy. I would recommend this doctor.
Dr Buckner is great. He takes time to know his patients and is very thoughtful in his approach.
A professional and a gentleman. Was seen right away and he set me up for my screening and testing. A great experience. I feel hopeful that I am in the right care!
my wife & I have always enjoyed our appts with Dr Buckner....the good doctor cares about his patients....and we care about him
Dr. Buckner was affable and professional. This was my first time seeing an MD in quite some time, and he helped me feel comfortable. We addressed all the items I wanted to talk through and then he helped map out next steps. Look forward to returning.
Dr. Buckner was great! Very kind and efficient; I appreciated being able to come in outside of my work hours. He had an immediate plan of action to treat my migraines and took the time to explain the history/research surrounding the treatment. Would recommend.
Easy to talk to. Willing to work w you to find the right solution.
I have been Dr. Buckner's patient for several years. I shall not change. Dr. Buckner is the best.
I've been seeing Dr. Buckner for many years, very professional, very knowledgeable, highly recommend him
been a patient for many years. great doctor , listener and compassionate.
Brilliant physician who listens carefully
Dr. Buckner is a very good doctor and I would recommend him to everyone that is looking for a doctor.
Very professional and friendly, highly recommend him!!
With the glowing references and ratings on Zocdoc, I decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Buckner regarding a medical issue my mother was experiencing within his expertise. The front desk person should not be there. Very unwelcoming, abrasive and plain rude. He was 20 minutes late seeing us ... no apologizes made for seeing two patients before us. Since we were first time patients, I thought the consultation would begin with sharing a brief background of my mother's medical condition/history and then checking her out doctor and asking her questions while examining her. I explained to the doctor the situation, her medical history about 4 times... 4 TIMES! After the 3rd time, I totally felt like a machine, repeating the same thing as if he was just hearing me (similar to Charlie Brown, womp womp womp), and not "listening to me". At this point, he was not the doctor for us and didn't even lay a finger on my mom, as a normal physician should do when examining a first time patient. I thought bringing my mother to Midtown Manhattan physician, we would be seen by a physician who was passionate, compassionate, knowledgeable with an excellent bedside manner... I was highly mistaken. We left the doctors office the time spent getting to his office, waiting for the 20 minute overlap and the "consultation" was a complete waste of time. Dr. Buckner promised a "phone call" with a full analyses, future steps and recommendations of what my mother should do. THANKFULLY, I'm not holding my breath and her life didn't depend on it.. Perhaps, the color of our skin tone was not welcome.
Always a pleasure visiting my doctor.
The best doctor I've ever had. Never felt rushed, A good listener. Been seeing Dr B. About 10 years...
I've been a patient of Dr. Buckner for over a decade. He is excellent and everything you would want in a doctor.
Dr. Buckner took a practical approach towards our appointment. He was straight forward with his analysis, and was willing to answer any questions I had regarding the problems I brought to his attention.
1. When I arrived, multiple appointments had been booked to see the doctor at the same time - I wasn't aware that this was common practice nor did I appreciate it - I raised this as a question to the office manager to get a sense of what the wait time might be, her tone was rude and dismissive. Upon exit, she behaved similarly. 2. I needed to get a form completed by the doctor (routine physical), he did not listen nor address any of my complains, completed the form incorrectly (wrong date/wrong birthday/incomplete sections), and seemed more interested in getting me out of there as soon as possible than to either listen to my concerns. I left feeling neglected, and needing to schedule another appointment elsewhere. If you are looking for a compassionate doctor who listens to you, do not go here. Office manager is rude as well.
Quick and Easy!
It was a good visit and very short.
Though for a short visit, Dr. Buckner was professional, straight to the point, friendly and has excellent bedside manner. The wait time was very short. Definitely will consider working with Dr. Buckner in the future.
Felt very rushed out
As usual, minimal waiting time and personable thorough care! Thank you Dr. Buckner
I saw Dr. Bruckner for a hematology consultation. He thoroughly addressed a concern I had prior to my appointment, and was very understanding. I am very satisfied with the consultation.
Always a great experience. I was interested in becoming a bone marrow donor and he was able to assist with finding a reputable organization.
Very unresponsive to emails. Sent information to be reviewed and his reply was that I needed to schedule another appointment. When I came around for a 2nd appointment and asked him what he thought about the information I sent him from the blood tests that I had done he told me he never reviewed it. He tried not to review it while I was there and I had to insist that he do his job, which he finally did. Also did not respond to my other doctor's request for an okay to resume my other medication. Had to force him to do that while I was in his office, too. One of the worst experiences I've had with a doctor. Will never go back.
Was very happy with how my appointment went. Dr Buckner is very down to earth and respectful. Was seen as soon as I finished my paperwork
Very personable and patient!
always very knowledgeable and helpful - never judgmental - excellent bedside manner...
Very good professional and seems like a really good person. I'd recommend him.
Dr. B is my physician for many years. I appreciate his diagnostic skills, observant eye, network of specialists, and that he cares for his patients. I am grateful he is my doctor. Additionally, his receptionist is efficient, understanding, professional and friendly.
First visit. Very personable and professional.
He was very nice and addressed all of my concerns with care. I would highly recommend him. Also, appointment was really quick and he took care of everything! Love him and just found my new permanent doctor.
Dr. Buckner is the only doctor I want to see for general care. He was professional, respectful, and gave great care overall.
Love Dr. Buckner! He's been my PCP for years and will continue to be so. He's an excellent down-to-earth physician that really listens to you and makes sure you are on the right path.
I really like him. He gave me all answers and was smiling all the time. I feel much better after visit. Definitely I see him when I'll have an issue
Very nice and was very helpful. Even saw me after I was 45 min late for the appt due to traffic.
Excellent, a very nice experience.
Dr Buckner is the absolute best
Really professional. Asked detailed information. Recommend
As always, Dr. Buckner was highly professional, and showed an interest in me as his patient and in my well-being.
Great doctor has not steered me wrong. Never a long wait and is familiar with his patients
Very personable and professional. A small, intimate operation - the appointment went seamlessly and quicker than I thought
Felt very fast, transnational and impersonal. Not sure if I would go back.
Excellent, as always.
They tried booking a blood test appt, which I never asked for
Best doc!!! Really cool guy who cares :)
striaght and to the point. helpful and very accomodating.
As always Dr. Buckner was the absolute best.
Did not enjoy my visit at all. He made me feel lower than him the entire time and was not helpful in helping me with my concerns.
Excellent as always
Very thorough, give its to you straight! Gave me a lot of great information and referred me to specialists for each of my concerns. The nurse was also very sweet and attentive.
Dr, Buckner showed interest and listened with attention.
My insurance was very recently cancelled and DR. Buckner office was very accommodating to help me during this lapse in coverage. Thanks Lana, your awesome!!
I am a long standing patient of Dr. Buckner. Always professional, courteous and listens attentively to all issues. Never rushed. I always goes very well. No complaints. Thank you
good listener - personable - thoughtful answers to my questions
Efficient and explain options for immigration check-up well.
Thoughtful, to-the-point questions and suggestions.
Very pleased with my appointment and Dr. Buckner. Was seen within a few minutes of arriving. The office was calm and quiet; a nice environment. Dr. Buckner was very professional. He took some time to speak with me, provided all the information I needed, and was courteous the whole time. Would definitely recommend him to others.
Dr Buckner is the best. My health keeps getting better. He is a model physician: combination of professional training and experience, native intelligence and judgment, caring and following through.
Helpful, as always.
Dr. Buckner was as warm, caring, and professional as he has been over the 25 years that he has been my internist.
Professional, thoughtful physician. Listened to my concerns . Efficient and kid front office staff.
Dr Buckner is always the best!!!
Excellent doctor and nice relaxed manner but doesn't miss a thing..
Thorough, professional and conscientious. Asked all the right questions and provided insight into ways to achieve better health. Thankfully, ZocDoc texted me the new address just before my appt.!
New, clean office and knowledgable staff
Great visit. First time visit. Highly recommend.
I've been seeing Dr. Buckner for almost 10 years and I have only nice things to say about him. He's straight to the point, has a very relaxed and no nonsense approach. Treats me like a human being and shows real interest in my health and well being. He is always ready to answer any questions and never makes me feel embarrassed or self conscious about asking. I really love him as my physician and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Dr. who will treat them like real individuals. He was the one who after listening to me carefully and asking many questions diagnosed me with clinical depression and adhd a few years ago and really changed my life. I'm a happier person today because of his care. Dr. Buckner is great!
My company asks me to do an annual physical every year. Dr. Buckner is very efficient adminstering and a great doctor!
After looking for a new doctor for some time, I just hope I remain close enough to Dr. Buckner's office to continue going to him. I came in, got what I needed to get done quickly, expertly, and efficiently, and I got out. Nothing extra, and no wasting time. Perfect for me. Thank you!
Very helpful and effective.
Perfect doctor visit experience
I thought he was great, very informative and professional, he went out of his way to help me with my insurance company and getting my prescriptions
It was great
Unresponsive to multiple emails simply questioning a rigid reply he gave very little consideration to. Tells patients to go find another practice when called on this behavior. I struggle to see how patients want this type of individual responsible for their healthcare.
Good doctor. Very helpful and attentive.
Generic and perfunctory. Assembly line medicine.
Dr. Buckner has been A's since my first visit with him. Always looks for the best course of treatment for you. Doesn't give you pills you don't need. Awesome doctor.
Excellent doctor, professional, knowledgeable, and also very efficient and friendly office staff. Very happy I found this practice.
Spends time with the patient and is thorough in his medical approach from listening to testing for potential issues. A rare find in today's medical world.
Dr. Buckner has been a great G.P. for us for many years. Now he has a new, spacious office suite, even nicer. He is completely professional but also treats his patients like individual people. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Excellent diagnostician. LIsten to your Doctor !!! Take your physician's advice. Thanks you Dr. Buckner.
Always prompt, always gentle, and his office is new! Surprisingly calm environment, and his receptionist/assistant is wonderful.
Dr Buckner combines exceptional medical talent with a human heart. He is the best!
I've been a patient of Dr. Buckner's for over ten years, but after my most recent visit I will be finding a new GP and I can no longer recommend him. He was clearly peeved at being asked to perform a routine pre-operation checkup, spent much of the visit complaining about the forms and worrying about responding to blood test results while on vacation, and just finally handed me the paperwork and literally told me I should go somewhere else to have this done. I live 2 hours from the city and basically wasted an entire work day for this? So yeah, I will be going somewhere else.... and I suggest you consider doing the same.
The doctor was very nice and accommodated me even though I was slightly late and his last appointment of the day.
I did an Immigration Medical Examination and Dr Buckner, was direct, straight to the point and spoke to me about all the options carefully, so that we could find the best solution for my situation. Will likely go to him as my PCP.
They were able to get me in earlier than my appointment. He was calm, quick, and professional.
Dr. Buckner has always provided top notch service!
Dr. Buckner is attentive, caring, and very insightful.
short, to the point and extremely helpful .....
I've been seeing him 20 years and consider him more than my doctor.....
Thorough, polite, friendly, direct - everything you'd need and want from a GP. Much better than some other NYC GPs I've seen.
Extremely informative and shows interest in you. How rare is that? Highly, highly recommend
Could be better at responding...left me hanging regarding a very important matter
Dr. Buckner is friendly, knowledgable, and he treats you like an intelligent adult by explaining the pros and cons of your options.
He is amazing figured out my issues right away...accomplished what other doctors haven't in 5 years in a matter of two weeks...he makes you feel comfortable and he is very kind...receptionist is also very sweet
Very rushed and did not take me seriously. Prescribed me a medication that was not available in Duane reade, rite aid or CVS. Say what?
Dr. Buckner is the best and has been for 17 years! Very caring and kind.
Clear, concise, right to the point, great advice thoughtfully given. He's been my doctor for years. He is the absolute best!!
Great manner, highly competent, thoroughly recommend.
Dr Buckner was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and put me at ease...highly recommend
I'm so happy that Dr. Buckner is treating my condition. He was very polite, informative, and thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Buckner.
All around the best primary care physician in New York.
Very professional. No nonsense.
I came to see Dr. Buckner because I needed a civil surgeon to do my immigration medical examination. Surprisingly, it was very hard for me to find a doctor with good reviews that was also qualified to do this examination. This examination was spread out in 3 visits (almost 4 because of their mistake). The first appointment, they took my blood and gave me a TB skin test. Second time, they read my TB test and my results weren't available, so I needed to come back. I was told to email them before I came by again to make sure the results were out (which I understood was not in their control). I emailed them twice to see when I could come by to get the vaccinations and no reply. I called maybe over 10 times and no answer and finally when they did, they told me to go to my own primary doctor to get the vaccinations. When I came by for the 3rd time, the doctor told me that I had completed the examination and they would fill the paperwork for me. I sat there for 30 minutes while they finished and they didn't show me the final document before they sealed it. I asked for a copy (thank god I did) and found that they misspelled my name and made other mistakes throughout the document. When I pointed out the mistake, the nurse gave me a horrible attitude and told me to come by tomorrow and when I expressed inconvenience because of work and travel schedule, she angrily told me to sit down and wait. I was in their office for over 1 hour. Wouldn't recommend this type of experience to anyone at all.
Finding a good doctor in NYC isnt the easiest thing to accomplish, but I'll be seeing Dr. Buckner from now on. Fantastic experience.
I've been a patient of Dr. Buckner for over a decade. He is top notch in every way. He's smart, funny, well informed and consistently helpful no matter what the issue...I highly recommend him.
I love Dr. Buckner. He's succinct, caring, funny, always has good referrals when needed. The office is nice, he makes unforced conversation that keeps you at ease. I highly recommend him.
Very good Doctor and courteous and helpful staff.
I like his attention and suggestions.
He was very kind and I had a prompt visit.
A great doctor. Calm, thorough, factual. Really took his time to listen to me. I'm sticking with this one.
I love this doctor. Highly recommended!!!
I went in for a routine physical and was billed for a conversation that was had not the reason for my visit. I have been trying to get this bill fixed for about a year. I have made phone calls and sent letters and they said that because we discussed other items (which were only discussed because I was ASKED about them) those were the reason for the visit. Unbelievable. I would never visit this doctor again!
My visit was awesome. The best reason I would say it's because he listens to your issues and gets straight to the point. Always pleasant.
Very good diagnositician.
Wait time due to my arriving early during doc's lunch break. He still took me early. Great guy, always there for me.
Really glad I found Dr. J Buckner. He's very professional & personable.
As always Dr. Buckner is just wonderful!
I have been seeing Dr. Buckner for over 2 years now. Even though it takes an hour to travel, I make the effort because his level of empathy and professionalism is unmatched. He takes the time to explain things and 'go that extra mile.' Unlike today's 'patient factories,' there is a personal touch to his bedside manners. Also worthy of mentioning is that my appointment times have always resulted in minimal wait times :)
Thorough and Comprehensive.
Dr Buckner displays every characteristic of the best doctor: intelligent, patient,kind, caring, experienced, resourceful, connected. THE BEST.
Dr. Buckner is great, he really listens and tries to figure out the best options for you!
Dr. Buckner was, as always, professional and compassionate.
I loved that he got right down to business, discussing my needs. Great Doctor, definitely going back (but hopefully not too often ;) )
couldn't have been better
I go to Dr. Buckner for my annual checkup. He's just great, very patient and helpful.
Dr. Buckner was excellent. The appointment was fast and efficient. He was incredibly friendly, made me feel at ease, answered my questions completely and had me out quickly. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Buckner is great.
Very professional, friendly, thorough!
Great doctor, great office.
A true professional ...!
Great doctor. Been seeing him for over 10 years.
Very nice Dr. When your blood pressure drops going to see him for the first time. Enough said. Very happy ??
Great NYC doctor
DR BUCKNER IS THE BEST. HE DISPLAYS ALL THE ATTRIBUTES YOU NEED FROM A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN: INTELLIGENCE, EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE, GOOD JUDGMENT, STRONG COMMUNICATION SKILLS, A HUMAN HEART.
He's very knowledgeable and very respectful. He fully explained my choices and made sure I understood I had all the information necessary to move forward.
Great! Highly recommend
He was a bit rude and rushed. He got little angry when I asked him what side of town an infusion center he was sending to me was on. His receptionist didn't seem on top of things and didn't give me correct direction or collect my co-pay at the time of the visit. There was no follow up suggested or what to do next after completing the suggested course of treatment - not that I would go back to him if there was.
I have been a patient of Dr. Buckners for over 12 years. He's professional, thoughtful and has excellent bedside manner.
I know Dr. Buckner for aleast 26 yrs, He is an wonderful doctor.always had great advisor. He talk to you like you part of his family. Very profession . And he give you the time to listen to what is on your mind. I am very happy to have Dr.Buckner as My doctor.
Very professional, friendly, and prompt. Highly recommended. All test results can also be viewed online - very convenient.
He asks questions,listens to your answers and offers you his honest opinions. What more can you ask for?
Dr Buckner dismissed my original diagnosis and suggested I see a psychiatrist. He glanced at my paperwork, but didn't do any real investigate work. I believe he came to a conclusion before he even saw me. As a hematologist, he didn't even take any blood! Not saying he's a bad guy, but we certainly didn't see eye to eye from the start.
Excellent. Very knowledgeable about all medical.
The physician knew exactly why I was coming to his office prior to my visit and received my lab work and would not accommodate me. This he could've told me prior to the visit he wasted my time I could've been spending with a physician that would treat me. However, I'm sure he will bill my insurance for the visit. His bedside manner..umm he didn't have one.
I appreciated the time Dr Buckner spent with me as well as his advice
Really Great! Goes above and beyond to help me. Wants to make the experience as easy and simple as possible.
Just went in for a routine physical. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctor was extremely personable and professional. After years of struggling to find a general practitioner, this visit was quite a relief.
Dr was pleasant and reassuring. Appt was what I expected.
Great bed side manner. Well run office. Was right on time. highly recommended!
I was looking for a primary care physician in Midtown when I found Dr. Buckner on ZocDoc. I was a few minutes late to my appointment, but the Dr. And his staff were very understanding and I was seen shortly after arriving. While talking to Dr. Buckner I felt really at ease and like I was the only patient in the world. I have had my fair share of doctors where I feel I am being rushed out of the office as quickly as possible. I would recommend Dr Buckner to the ZocDoc community as well as my friends!
I've been seen by Dr. Buckner off and on for about 2 years. I have not seen him almost a year. Same as always, he is a GREAT doctor with communication skills. Very good explainer. I'd recommend Dr. Buckner for anyone, especially the ones with alots of questions about their conditions.
Dr. Buckner is very professional, and has a thoughtful sincerely concerned approach to managing my health. I can count on him to be honest with me.
He is the best.
Went in with diagnosis in hand been having a worsening of symptoms due to a lung disease or autonomic problem, the doctor was horrible did not even take a blood pressure before telling me I should see a psych even with my paperwork he read a preliminary report stating if earlier testing was negative no further workup and failed to care about the lung disease or my trouble breathing! Maybe hes ok with simple conditions but not complex and he flat out told me that! I wish i saved the energy instead of seeing him!
After my first visit, I find Dr. Buckner to be kind, polite, and highly competent. He has a great personality and doesn't take himself to seriously. That is a good thing.
Dr. was good. Receptionist was extremely rude. She contradicted what the Dr. told me and I had to ask the doctor to come intervene. She was then rude to the Dr. and suggested he order tests that were different than what he had prescribed because they were more likely to be approved by the insurance company. I called after my visit to follow up with the Dr. and left a message with the answering service. No one ever returned my call. Very bad experience. Too bad since the Dr. seemed good.
As good as it gets.
Very polite and professional. I didn't feel like it was a store or a factory with people lining and waiting hours like in other places. It is a very small office, it feels warm and intimate and like you have the time to explain and understand. The doctor purpose is definitely not to feed your with medication, i really appreciate that. I will make this doctor my primary one if I have to go again.
Dr. Buckner was friendly, professional and efficient. I had virtually no wait time, and the receptionist was friendly as well.
Dr. Buckner saw me promptly and quickly provided the prescription refill I came for. He also offered sound advice regarding the pain medications I would need after knee-replacement surgery.
My first visit with Dr. Bruckner was great. He took the time to get to know me and did not rush my visit. I didn't have to wait at all - quite a rarity!
I cannot praise this doctor enough! He listened to me, diagnosed me based on a combination of my intuition and his expertise. He had so much humor and his office was impeccable. I almost wish I wasn't limited to seeing him only when I'm sick!
As good as it gets
Very professional and complete. Dr. Buckner knows his field of work, doesn't mince words, and has an amicable way of parsing information and facts. I would definitely return to him for further treatment and/or consultations.
Dr. Buckner as always is patient and kind while addressing your needs. He is the best!
Visit went well.
Horrible. When I told Dr. Buckner what was going on, he asked, "and I'm supposed to know how those two things are related??" He also told me that Xanax are like "little freeze-dried non-alcoholic martinis. You've had a martini, right? Didn't it make you feel good?" This was my first AND LAST visit and do not recommend to anyone.
A fine G.P., very solicitous about my medical needs.
I really enjoy Dr. rough now I have been with them for over 20 years and I think he's a very good doctor
As always, excellent care! Dr. Buckner is very thorough and pleasant. Efficient office with no wait times. Lana is sweet and helpful with everything!... I definitely recommend!
The med he prescribed worked like a charm! He was really nice to hear my concerns and explained in detail the course of the treatment and the medicines.
Great as usual!
I truly enjoy every encounter with Dr. Buckner. He's timely, efficient and give sound medical advice to ensure patients are comfortable with healthcare plans. Awesome doctor!!
I waited for less than 5 minutes. The office is conveniently located and clean, and Dr. Buckner was incredibly helpful. Highly recommended!
As usual, prompt professional Listens to my every issue then renders recommendations I luv it
Excellent staff - very caring and helpful!
Excellent physician. Shows interest in the patient and takes his time.
Dr. Buckner is great. He's thoughtful and took my concerns seriously, providing a thorough testing and options plan in order to tackle everything. I trust and look forward to working with him on my medical care.
He was fast, punctual, and I felt like he was a regular guy that was there to help. Great Doctor, would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Worst experience I have ever had going to a doctor. When I went to see him, and was explaining my symptoms he shh'ed me so that he could enter the information in the computer. Then, once he was done, and I started to ask questions told me he was done answering my questions because he had another patient waiting- my entire visit was literally less than 7 minutes- 4 of which we weren't talking and he was entering information into the computer. Neither he nor his office staff ever even asked me to fill out a patient information or asked about family history or my personal medical history.
He's great! Very professional, nice and I feel like he genuinely cares about your health!
He is the most patient and sympathetic person ever.
Dr Buckner is the best. From professional knowledge and experience to compassionate intelligence he is in a class by himself.
My experience with Dr Buckner was less than pleasant. He was unwilling to communicate via phone or email (even though this is promoted as his preferred mode) and even complained about the number of calls and emails I made to the office, his tone was patronizing and rude, and his office staff mirrored such rude demeanor. I felt swindled into coming into the office to "discuss" results when we had already spoken over the phone. I highly suggest you stay away from this "doctor."
He paid close attention to discussion of medical history and had valuable feedback. His staff was extremely helpful too and I've never seen anyone draw blood that effortlessly and painlessly!
Very matter of fact and didn't waste my time. Made an appointment same day and started right on time. Gave me a good referral to an ENT to address my sinus problem more thoroughly.
My first visit was good. I went in today to talk again my recent weight gain and I think he hit the solution right on the spot. Will be back for my follow up. Thanks :)
Dr. Buckner always takes the time to listen carefully and provide helpful, insightful advice. He takes great care to explain things and to make sure you're not leaving his office with any further concerns or questions. I also trust that he has my best interests in mind and will recommend solutions that will genuinely help, (while at the same time being very open and honest about the limits of effectiveness treatments may have) as opposed to just prescribing meds and having that be the end of it - the way a primary care physician should be!
All good, Dr. Buckner is very informative. I've been his patient for many years.
For 15 years Dr. Buckner has been compassionate, caring, thorough and the only doctor I have used for this many years. I'll keep him forever!
he was thorough and def seemed to care.
Dr. Bucker was pleasant and informative. Outlined a sensible treatment plan with clear next steps. Would recommend.
I had two visits with Dr. Buckner in the past two years. Both left me feeling confident of his diagnosis and suggestions and were very professional.
Great, very professional and honest
As always, Dr. Buckner was thoroughly professional, attentive and effective. He has been our family internist for more than two decades, which says a great deal about our admiration and respect for him.
As always, he's very accommodating/professional and takes time to listen to your concerns.
He is very dismissive and has a nonholistic approach to medicine. Go elsewhere unless your issue is blatantly obvious.
I was very pleased. He asked all the right questions about me & my health. Look forward to keeping him as my primary doctor.
Very intimate and personable. Genuinely has the patients interest at heart rather than trying to do a bunch of unnecessary treatments.
Dr Buckner saved my life. That's not being overly dramatic. When you have a rare or painful condition, your GP is the quarterback of a medical team that seems to just keep growing. And, to keep mixing sports metaphors, he will go to bat for you. He's been there for me for two years now. He called insurance companies for me. He wrote letters to other doctors. He even tried to help me during an emergency when he was taking an international vacation for the first time in who knows how long. It seems those in politics always say the medical system is falling to pieces. Well, they haven't seen Dr Buckner. If you need someone no-nonsense to help you coordinate your medical team, or if you just want an every six months physical to make sure you're still alive (I recommended healthy family members to him), he'll sit with you for however long you want, until you get answers you need, or five minutes for the simplest once-over. I'm still not healed, but Dr Buckner got me closer to living my life fully than any doctor across the nation. Give him a shot for whatever you need in a GP.
He is a hematology specialist but still seeing patients as a primary care doctor. He was irritated with my request to get a referral to see a GI specialist. But this is one of the job of primary care doctor, sorry
Not too excited about him. Went in for a general consult and felt like he didn't try to assist in any of the issues I had. Perhaps if I went in for a specialist visit (e.g. oncology, which is one of his specialties) he would have shown a greater interest in helping, but I wouldn't recommend him for general consult visits.
Dr. Bucker provided and excellent service and felt extremely confident that my medical needs were being provided for. I would highly recommend him.
As in the past, Dr. Buckner continues the in the tradition of the best listeners and diagnosticians; a great doctor with helpful and courteous staff.
Very personable and knowledgeable! I'm glad I found him!
Dr Buckner always seems to have a calming extra on me & my wife when we show up for our appts....for over 25 years he's helped keep us healthy & we can't say enough good things about him....but we will say to all of you that are looking for a great Doctor....make you appt with Dr. Buckner....he's as good as it gets....
Dr. Buckner is a true professional !
very good his always very attentive, I know him for quit some times. Thanks
Dr. Buckner is always great.
Great sense of humor, knowledgeable, very approachable. Highly recommend.
Awesome physician. Very thorough.
He assumed I was there to get a prescription to Aderol when I really did have concerns.
He got my issue and dealt with it. Good listener and empathetic.
Great Doctor, highly recommend. Excellent listener.
I visited for a checkup and it was great. Dr. Buckner was courteous and patient. The office was tidy and organized, and he got me in and out.
He is great!
Dr. Buckner is very pleasant and professional. His secretary is very nice, helpful and will go out of her way to assist you.
Dr. Buckner started as what I thought was a great doctor. He listened to my issues that I had until this point told, no one, and put me on a path to recovery. I asked once for an increase in my dosage (I was not familiar with the drug, and I didn't know how the dosage would work for me) and he immediately cut me off, citing 'absuive tendencies'. It was extremely insulting and not what I anticipated from someone I spilled my life secrets to. Tread carefully.
He was very straightforward and very helpful. He was also very knowledgable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
He was helpful and thorough. He looks up information he does not know and was very professional in his treatment. The office responds to email which is great but does not allow payment online.
Good doctor and was upfront and explained what he was thinking
Excellent, he is a very attentive and conscientious doc.
Best doctor visit I've ever made!
Dr. Buckner ha been my doctor for 15 years! He is caring, compassionate and competent! Best bedside manner, a great listener.
Seemed like he was in a hurry to reach other patients, I tried to ask a question at the end and he pretty much dodged and it and pretended not to hear me. Will not be going back.
Dr Buckner is the best. Staff is professional and friendly too
Doctor Buckner was phenomenal, he was accommodating also with prescriptions to see if my insurance would cover it, very attentive and also extremely knowledgeable and made me feel extremely comfortable. He has a wide range of expertise and was explaining carefully so that I would understand in layman terms and also asked me what I thought of his different choices (no one ever did that!) and found the best treatment accommodating his expertise and my opinion. The secretary was extremely sweet and I didn't know how to fill out the form of my insurance as I am international, she told me to get my insurance on the phone and swiftly got all the information, she was not dismissive like other places I have been to and was extremely helpful! Great great team! I will definitely recommend my sister to go there!
He was quick and to the point.
Dr. Buckner is an outstanding professional.
Dr. Buckner is courteous and intelligent. I've never had to wait more than a few minutes. His "bedside" manner is old school, he listens to his patients and engages in thoughtful inquiry. Though I have no doubt he is as if not more busy than his peers, he always takes the time to consider the right path and discuss it with those in his care. (He also seems to get the whole cyber thing, and his use of ZocDoc has been right on in my book).
The office is extremely narrow and tiny however the female (doctor?) who was working at the front during my visit set a professional but non-intimidating tone. I can't say that Dr. Buckner was my favorite. I tend to prefer a welcoming and friendly environment when having to deal with medical issues and he was fairly quick to dismiss my symptoms. Luckily, all I needed was rest and I was cured :) however, after visiting him and going over the pain I had been feeling (that being the reason for my visit) I did not feel like he had really made an effort to explore my case since I was a new patient. Overall, I would go back but I wouldn't actively recommend.
Pienso que la visita fue profesional, preciso y condescendiente. Me gusto su trato y su actitud.
Dr. Buckner has been my primary care physician for many years. I appreciate his Zen-like attitude and advice. He has helped me a lot.
First time here and Dr. Buckner was great. Attentive, friendly, respectful.
Dr. Buckner is a friendly, easy to talk to doctor with a great bedside manner. I have been a patient of his for probably about 15 years. He always manages to get his message across in a clear well thought out manner. If you ask for more advice, he will give it. My advice; is to take it! I'm one of those people that looks up stuff on the internet, think I know what I'm talking about. Dr. Buckner is able to point me in the right direction in spite of myself. Somehow, in this day and age, where it's common to go to medical groups and see different doctors, Dr. Buckner is a traditional doctor. Always felt he remembered my last visit and he knows me. I've never felt rushed. I highly recommend him.
Intelligent, experienced, professional, caring - what more can you ask? Dr Buckner is the best!
Great. Helpful as usual
Been to this doctor's office twice now. By far the best doctor I have been to in the city, maybe anywhere. Gets the job done quick so you are not wasting time or your day. Definitely strong recommendation to use him.
Dr. Buckner was fantastic. Friendly, efficient and made sure all my questions were answered!
Reassuring bedside manner. Reviewed the reports. I just felt a bit rushed. He had another patient waiting in the next room and seemed in a hurry to end our discussion
Awesome as always
Rushed through my appointment so he can leave for his Thanksgiving vacation. (I arrived on time. The office should not accept appointments knowing the doctor would not be able spend adequate time with the patients!) The doctor also smuggly laughed at some of my answers to the lifestyle questions and I felt judged and uncomfortable. He sounded knowledgeable, if you can over look the unsatisfactory bedside manner.
Repeated visits for unnecessary blood tests, doctor didn't even know why he asked me to come back.
I have been going to Dr Buckner for the last 4 years. I find him to be professional, caring and someone who can answer all my questions.
Very straight forward, great listener and nice.
Nice guy. More personably than most doctors. I did set a 8:30 appointment on a Friday which is early, but I don't want to take too much time away from my job. No one showed up until 8:45 and it was another 15 minutes before I was seen. I did also feel a bit glazed over because there was a new patient, presumably with a 9AM appointment.
I had a lot of questions during the medical checkup, and they were able to give me answers when they could. I went in and asked about flu shots, shortness of breath, certain lifestyle choices, and so on. Both Jeffrey Buckner and his assistant, Lana, were very accommodating and patient with me. I would certainly go again.
Great, as always. He
Dr Buckner saw me immediately, and had the same amount of time and compassion for me that he always does. Seriously, if you've been having a rough time trying to find either the right general doctor to see once a year or the "quarterback" for your medical team if you have something more serious that requires more frequent appointments, I can definitely attest that Dr Buckner can wear all the hats, and has been just great. Also, it's so easy to make an appointment with him. Two minutes later, and you're on the way to having a better doctor.
I texted Dr. Buckner while he was in Europe; he got right back to me and solved a problem for me. How many doctors do that, today?? He is excellent -- considerate, wise/knowledgeable but not condescending at all, and extremely personable; and he tells it to you straight, no BS. I have been going to him for more than 20 years now: I recommend him to everyone. His new PA is also fantastic -- she helped me find a much better and more suitable health plan.
The Dr went above and beyond to help me having never seen me before. He was sympathetic snd very accommodating. I also highly recommend his nurse who also was extremely helpful and pleasant.
Courteous, professional, caring, hardly any wait, and no rush once I was being seen. Both the Dr and Nurse/Receptionist were a pleasure to deal with.
He was a bit delayed by the weather but called me ahead of time to inform me that he was running late. Great service.
Professional, informative, and not stressful.
Personal and professional - both in good measure.
Dr. Buckner is an excellent doctor - knowledgeable, high attention to detail, and extremely patient. I would recommend him to anyone needing to see an internist.
Dr. Buckner cares about his patients. I expressed to him that I could not afford a full months supply of my meds. He immediately searched online a found me a coupon for the meds. I now happily have a months supply of meds.
Dr Buckner is a very concerned and very thorough. He listens intently to what you can tell him about your visit, gives you a diagnosis and most important a recommendation of another physician if he thinks you need a referral. He is always available for feedback and future consultation if needed.
I have a bit of an unusual medical history, and with most doctors, I can't get two sentences out before being pummeled with questions. I try to explain that if they would just let me speak for moment, they'd have their questions answered. Dr. Buckner was awesome. He listened - with full attention, no checking the computer, no skimming my chart - just listened! - for a full five minutes. He let me get the whole story out, and was helpful and kind as we discussed options. I would recommend him to anyone! What a nice man! Office is clean, convenient, and quiet. A+.
Dr Buckner is attentive and listens to your needs. He considers your history and makes sure you are up to date on tests etc...
Dr. Buckner was great! Even at the end of the day (I had the last appointment of the evening), he took the time to listen to my problems and concerns and offer solutions. He talked me through all available options and was very positive. Great experience.
It was the best doctor i ever saw. So calm and so nice and very professional.
The most pleasant healthcare experience of my life. Immaculate office, prompt service, and a very professional staff.
Good bedside manner. Friendly but to the point. Convenient office to grand central too.
Was very nice and listened to all of my complaints haha!
Wow... I usually don't bother writing reviews, but I felt this one was really warranted! I was the last appointment of the day, and Dr. Buckner was very rushed and created a really uncomfortable atmosphere from the beginning. About 10-15 minutes into our appointment I asked for a prescription refill and he flipped, saying "we were just in the script room!" and slammed the door shut as he rushed out. He then proceeded to yell at his assistant and leave the office altogether without explanation or saying goodbye, slamming another door on his way out! His assistant came in afterwards to apologize for his behavior. I've never seen something so unprofessional before... needless to say I won't be going back!
Always pleasant. .
Dr. Buckner is smart, funny and caring. He's truly one of a kind. Great physician!!!
Great Doctor, highly recommend!
Dr. Buckner left plenty of time for me to raise any concerns or discuss any issues. I never felt rushed. He and his assistant were both extremely pleasant, courteous and easy to talk to. The best Dr.'s office experience I've had in NYC.
In a changing medical world where you feel like you always have to deal with issues with your insurance company or specialists or referrals, Dr. Buckner tries to make it as easy as humanly possible. He's always been there to help, make things more clear, and he obviously cares about his patients' health and time. He's made my life so much simpler.
Excellent bedside manner, treatment, and general kindness. He was thorough and easy to work with. Highly recommended!
Dr. Buckner is extremely helpful. He is down to earth, engages in to-the-point conversation, and takes care of business to make the most of your appointment. He is a personable, straight forward Doctor who I will see again and recommend highly.
great first visit!
He's the best!
Amazing doctor! Truly cared. Highly recommended!!
Overall: terrific. Both he and his assistant are very professional and knowledgeable. It is a well-run office, conveniently located. Dr. Buckner has a wonderful manner and clearly is quite knowledgeable about numerous aspects of medicine.
thoughtful, warm and personal physician who has always managed problems efficiently and withot excessive testing. great communicator
Very convenient location and later hours are a major plus. Dr. Buckner was friendly, engaging, and had no problem sending out for bloodwork that I wanted done. I also wanted to discuss the potential of getting a prescription, and he gave me a talk about his opinions on the type of medication I was after and what he was willing to do. This included several referrals and helpful suggestions that I will follow up with. Reception was also friendly and helpful, overall great experience.
I would recommend this doctor to a friend. It will take me personally a number of visits to determine is this going to be my primary care for the long term as one visit does not allow me enough time to cover all medical concerns. However, Dr Buckner ' s bedside manner and one on one interaction has given me enough to determine that I will follow up with him.
Wonderful! Made me feel comfortable and was theory ugh and very nice. I would recommend to family members.
He always spends the time, answers all my questions, makes sure I get the referrals that I need, and serves as the quarterback for my other docs.
Went in for a physical and instead of doing the routine check up, he asked me what me what my height and weight was....this is something you're suppose to tell me. Then when I had blood drawn, the woman had to read a text book in order to figure everything out. Overall nice nice people, but all he did was refer me to other doctors.
Great as usual.
Courteous and efficient. Very helpful referral.
Thorough, professional and took time to answer my questions.
I go in with confidence that I have come to the right doctor and leave having my confidence confirmed.
Dr. Buckner will go above and beyond. He is knowledgeable, understanding, and honest. I would highly recommend Dr. Buckner to anyone in search of a great doctor.
He is fantastic as was his assistant. He was thorough and efficient. The office was in a great location.
Excellent, considerate doctor
I always feel better when I leave Dr Buckner's office. He is upbeat and caring, but his speed to extract from a gigantic data bank of knowledge those individual points appropriate to me is absolutely amazing.
I've been a patient of Dr. Buckner's for 15 years, and he has provided me with excellent care and thoughtful, honest advice.
HORRIBLE. I went in for a physical and Dr. Buckner did not do anything (did not even take my weight). Of my 20 minute visit, he spend 15 minutes talking about unrelated topics (like sailing). Then, when I asked for a blood test, he said sure. A few weeks later, I get a bill in the mail because he said he performed additional services that he did not. As a result, my visit went from a Well Visit to a Problem visit. When I called his office to fix this, I got no response. When I called my insurance company and they called his office, they got no response. It took me 6 months to get the billing straightened out! Do NOT go to Dr. Buckner.
Dr. Buckner is always kind and caring, he takes the time to listen while he attends to your medical issues.
Dr. Buckner goes above and beyond. It is rare to find a physician that truly cares about your well-being these days. Thorough, caring, and attentive are all words that I would use to describe Dr. Buckner
Dr. Buckner was excellent. He got to the point, but not in a way that made me feel rushed. He explained everything very clearly, and we developed a good course of action. I was very pleased with the visit, and I would definitely recommend him.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
great doctor...thank you!!!
I'm very unhappy with the service I received with this physician. I waited for approximately 20 minutes in the waiting - which honestly is not a terrible wait time for a doctor's office except it was blatantly obvious that no one else was there at the time. When I finally saw the doctor, he didn't even look at my area of ailment before prescribing a diagnosis - he eventually did but it seemed almost an after thought. After waiting to have my blood drawn by his assistant, he eventually opted to do it himself. It turns out that somehow a vein in my arm burst from the drawing of blood and I would end up with a painful bruise for three weeks (and counting) that covered most of my forearm. It's not a significant problem and has mostly healed by now but I don't see how that should happen from a simple blood drawing. To make matters worse, I just got the bill and he charged me for 45+ minutes when I barely had 5 minutes of his time.
Dr. Buckner is awesome! I've been going to him for years and would never think to switch to another PCP. :)
I highly recommend Dr. Buckner to anyone seeking an internist. Dr. Buckner has been my general practitioner for many years, and I just saw him for my annual physical. Dr. Buckner is thorough and knowledable. Equally important, and very much appreciated, Dr. Buckner takes the time to talk with me about how I am feeling about my overall health before he does a physical exam...Dr. Buckner is a wonderful internist.
worst experience in my life, Dr. can't even drew blood well, causing bruises on my arm.
Dr. Buckner has been my Primary Care Physician for over 25 years and I'm continually satisfied with the care he has provided. He is prompt, thoughtful and most important, he keeps things simple when it comes to focusing on my health concerns.
Doctor is always great, listens to all the relevant info, helps me wade through the medical system to the right treatment and specialists, and has even worked with the pharmacy when my insurance was causing issues. I'd recommend him to anyone. Just the right mix of old school and new school for me and my husband. He'll pause and consider all your symptoms without rushing, but will also bust out his phone to check things for you immediately when you need information pronto.
Jeff is always a pleasure to visit with. Who knew that getting sick could be so worthwhile? Humor aside, Jeff leverages knowledge and professional care with humility and deference to his patients. He is simultaneously disarming and effective. See this physician and experience for yourself.
Caring attentive warm and well spoken. Thrilled to have found Doctor Buckner
Dr. Buckner has been my primary physician for almost 23 years now. This reflects his uncontested exemplary service. Thank you for the opportunity to share.
I really appreciate the time that the doctor took with me regarding several issues that I was having. I was in his door and in an exam room within two minutes. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new physician!
As always Dr. Buckner is a true professional, caring and good listener. Plus he is switching some of my medication to reduce cost.
Excellent as always!!
Dr Buckner is simply the best. Highly intelligent, caring.
I always leave Dr Buckner's office feeling better than when I arrived. His knowledge and brainpower give me confidence. His human hearted approach make me happy to see him.
Seems like a really nice guy. Was open to questions. Great experience
He was very willing to listen to my needs and discuss the best plan that we both agreed on. He also did not pressure me or make me feel uncomfortable at all as some doctors tend to do at times when you don't necessarily agree with their plan. I was blown away by the amount he was willing to truly listen to my needs and come up with a plan we were both happy with.
Dr. Buckner is the man: funny, honest, and straightforward. Over the last couple of months I’ve been to see a few ENTs about a mysterious vocal cord problem – all of whom have sent me various ways – but Dr. Bucker cut right through the crap and set me straight on which advice I need to listen to and why (and which needlessly recommended follow-up appointments I can cancel). He also gave me great referrals to other doctors who would better serve me. No nonsense!
Funny, personable, knowledgeable, and pragmatic. Definitely happy with my choice.
Great doctor. Listened to my concerns. He was very knowledgable.
Dr. Buckner was fantastic. I saw a different doctor the day before who as very unsatisfactory. Dr. Bucker was the complete opposite: honest, kind and straight to the point. I felt like he did a through job. I'll definitely go back if I need to.
Extremely well mannered, attentive, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient professional.
Dr. Buckner is a phenomenal physician - highly intelligent and fully engaged. A real gem in Midtown, NY.
He seemed like a good guy/doctor
My wife and I have been patients of Dr Buckner's for over 25 years & he's always been the kindest & caring person....anyone would be lucky to have him as their doctor
Professsional, knowledgeble doctor, with an office at a very convinient location.
Super courteous & friendly! I had a referral from my PCP to just review my blood test results & he totally put me at ease.
Dr Buckner is a fabulous physician who has taken care of me for 30 years as well as saved the lives of several of my friends
I enjoyed my visit with Dr Buckner very much. This was my first doctors appointment since I was a kid and I didn't really know what to expect. He took time and asked me exactly what was going on and gave me clear solutions. He made sure I knew what further testing could be done and with ones would be worth my time and that others would be a waist of time and money. Most of all he talked to me like a person, not a patient and I really appreciated that.
Dr. Buckner was professional and considerate of my concerns without being alarming. He addressed what was bothering me quickly and completely and gave me confidence that I was in good health. I highly recommend a visit to Dr. Buckner.
Rescheduled a recently cancelled appointment and was seen quickly. Excellent 'life pro tips' for better health.
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Buckner. He was extremely thorough and easy to talk to.
I had an 8:15am appointment. Dr Buckner showed up at about 8:40am and to his credit starting seeing people (there was someone waiting before me) right away. The receptionist showed up around 9am. I went in for simple physical but he didn't seem very thorough to me. He took my blood for testing and the next morning I woke up with most of my arm bruised. This has NEVER happened to me before so my only conclusion is that he's not very good with a needle. He told me to email him so he has my email address and can send me the results. Upon leaving I realized that I didn't have his email address and the office NEVER answers the phone. 2 weeks later and still no results....
Dr Buckner does what needs to be done, and I'm so grateful. My case is extremely complex, and he always asks questions, pays close attention to what's happened since the last time I've seen him, and will call or fax any expert that he feels is necessary to get me the care that I need. I've never had a GP push so hard to make sure that I get the consults that I deserve in every other area of my health. He found me a gynecologist, an ophthalmologist, and even a second opinion on a condition that most doctors haven't even heard of. I can't recommend him highly enough.
I showed up for my appointment early and the doctor saw me early, so rare! Really great guy, smart and actually listens to what you have to say and presents all the options clearly.
I'm not sure how this doctor manages to get new patients. I went for a physical back in April 2014 since I've read good reviews. He was a nice guy and I never felt rushed while there. I was told that my results will be emailed to me as long as I email the office. However, I never heard back from the office regarding my physical results. I emailed and left a voice message to no avail. As a matter of fact, I still haven't gotten an email back or phone call regarding my physical examination result! Thankfully, I found another doctor who is on top of everything. I don't recommend this doctor.
It was great, his clam demeanor allows one to feel comfortable to ask questions
He is a sweet man, very professional, yet very concerned about his patient. This was my second visit, and I am relieved to have a new GP.
Went in to get a new prescription written quickly before I went on a long business trip. My normal doctor was on vacation and I was Dr. Buckner's last appointment of the day. Dr. Buckner sat with me and talked about my medical history for almost an hour after closing. He's now my primary care doctor. Highly recommended.
Dr. Buckner listened to me an took time to answer questions. He is a man of great experience.
Great doctor who really made me feel he was doing everything he could do to help me. This was my first time visiting Dr. Buckner. I went in with a sore throat, and, to be truthful, I was hesitant to even make a doctor's appointment in the first place, as so many times doctors will tell you, "It's a cold. There's nothing we can do. That will be $100, please." But the pain in my throat was getting to be unbearable, and I worried it might be strep, so I caved in and made the appointment. I'm so glad I did! Dr. Buckner was able to see me right away. His office is small and intimate, the receptionist was so kind, and the whole experience made me feel like I was visiting a doctor I had known for years. I'm not a fan of feeling like a number and waiting for hours to be seen by a doctor when I feel miserable, so this was exactly the kind of experience I look for in a doctor visit. Dr. Buckner sat down with me and went over my symptoms, as well as the treatment options, and gave me specific information about medications without talking over my head. I felt that my opinion mattered to him, and that I had a voice in my treatment, which is so much better than that feeling you get when a doctor says, "Sorry. Nothing we can do." I would definitely go back to Dr. Buckner again, and I would highly recommend him to others!
Always professional, courtesy and just as important, is not an alarmist. Speaks in even laymens terms so you are confident in your course of action.
Smart medicine man !
I am a new patient of Dr. Buckner and I found him to be very pleasant and professional. He answered all of my questions and conducted a thorough and painless physical exam. His nurse was also very pleasant and attentive.Once the exam was over, both he and the nurse let me know I could call or email at any time with questions. I would definitely recommend Dr. Buckner.
He was down to earth and told me the way it is. Go here I f you want to have a successful and efficient appointment.
I went in for a reference letter, and while there we discussed current "problems".. he is not pushy like other doctors. He gives you the information and let's you decide.
No hassle! Businesslike! Magnificent!
Dr. Buckner is kind, intelligent and prompt. His PA was seeing someone in the patient room while I was waiting to be signed in, and he saw this, came over and introduced himself, and immediately brought me to his office to chat. Such a nice guy. Smart and competent - highly recommended.
As always, Dr. Buckner provides professional and friendly service. As a medical student, I can definitely appreciate the manner in which he treats his patients. Thanks, doc!
Professional and thorough, good communication and no wait time.
Outstanding physician. Apart from doing a yearly physical checkup and blood workup, Dr. Buckner took the time to discuss several health and wellness issues and make recommendations for follow-up visits with other professionals.
My appointment started ~10 minutes late but I think they were training a new receptionist or something. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Buckner seemed knowledgable, but his bedside manner was quite off-putting. He was very condescending and patronizing, and I will not be visiting him again.
As ever, the doctor was professional and compassionate.
Took the time to explain....
Dr. Buckner is a very good doctor. He is a good listener and effective communicator. Really made me feel at ease after not seeing a doc for awhile.
Dr. B's professionalism is unchanged - and the office refurb is a great improvement.
I think Dr. Buckner is excellent. He offers good advice and also listens to your concerns and treats you like an intelligent adult. His office is calming (I like his assistant and the jazz music), the wait is never long, and he helps you avoid unnecessary follow up visits. Overall I highly recommend Dr. Buckner.
Excellent doc, great guy.
He's professional, personable and knowledgable. I appreciated not waiting too long to see him and would definitely recommend him.
disorganized, awful - very bad customer service - rude
Excellent doctor. Third trip now and never disappointed.
I arrived 15 minutes early. The doctor saw me on time. The whole appointment took 5 minutes. Efficient and professional.
i thought it as great. he is not in a hurry and allows you time to tell him whats wrong. he is very helpful with refferals if you need one. pleasant experience
Very professional and helpful with all my quetsions
Great doctor all around. Up with technology. Super quick. Highly recommend
Dr. Buckner was very helpful and professional!
I was happy with my visit. Very thorough and sympathetic and best of all, I was seen right away!
Dr. Buckner is an excellent doctor with a relaxing manner and is easy to talk to. He is exactly the kind of doctor that I would want as my GP should I end up really sick. Actually, come to think of it, that's happened. And I am glad he's my doctor. His staff are also professional and courteous. Dr. Buckner; just runs a great office.
Was seen by Dr. Buckner and was told to see a specialist because he or his assistant misread the results of a previously done ultra sound. When I arrived at the specialists' office the results were not there and they weren't reachable. They mixed up two entirely different results! When I called to explain the situation he was very rude and unprofessional! Would not recommend this Doctor!
Dr. Buckner is very personable and professional. The service was great -- minimal wait time and he really takes the time to listen.
Very personable, knowledgeable and also very progressive - highly computerized office
Never makes you wait, very knowledgeable and friendly. He's been my primary doctor for 18 years, since I first got health insurance!
A fine doctor and a good listener. The best.
Dr Buckner has it all: intelligence, experience and the ability to put the two together instantly, plus a human heart. My pleasure to recommend Dr Buckner most strongly.
Friendly and professional
Dr. Buckner is very personable and welcoming. He saw me right away and made sure that my visit was swift and effective.
I wouldn't wish this doctor on my worst enemy. The entire experience with Dr. Bruckner has been one of the most unprofessional, disconcerting things I've had to deal with. To make a long story short, Dr. Bruckner gave me a blood test to help diagnose some potentially scary symptoms I was having. He told me to get in touch with him by email in a week, and he would reply with my blood test results. Well, he did just that. He sent me my blood test results directly from the lab with zero explanation whatever as to what they meant. All of the statistics on the page meant nothing to be as a layman, and after asking for explanation I was sent nothing but the same document back. Please steer clear of this doctor! I fear for other patients who turn to him in their time of need.
Saw me right away and had an excellent bedside manner. Was compassionate and understanding. Highly recommended.
Doctor Buckner saw me right away. He was very professional and non-judgmental. Someone complained that he was unprofessional because he asks you to email him so that he simply has to hit reply to email you back. He is just ensuring that he doesn't make any mistakes when entering an email address. I find this to be both professional and smart. He was quick and efficient throughout the whole appointment, but also made sure to ask questions throughout (both medical and just making conversation). All around a good guy.
Wonderful as usual!
Was extremely rude and laughed in my face when I came in to discuss a medical issue I was experiencing. Would never go back. He was also texting someone the entire time I was in there for an appointment talking to him. Horrible experience.
Dr. Buckner is great! very through and excellent bedside manner. He is the PMD i have been looking for.
I liked Dr Buckner a lot. It was a very quick wait time and I was able to book the appointment easily.
This doctor was disappointing. If you have simple primary care needs he may be just fine. I chose him for his hematology specialty and he was rushed and dismissive. The investigative approach he recommended was slow for something that is causing me a lot of stress. I was a new patient and he had a waiting room full of patients and it was clear he only wanted to spend a few minutes with me. I should've realized from his every 15 minute Zoc Doc availability, but the good reviews made me think it might be ok. I won't be going back but will find a different provider.
Been seeing Dr. Buckner for years, recommend him to friends, He is very knowledgeable, informative and an all around excellent doctor. I recommend him highly. I love that I rarely wait more than a few minutes to see him when I have an appointment.
Dr. Buckner is AWESOME! I've searched for a very long time and been through the mill trying to find a great primary care doctor, and I'm relieved the search is finally over.
I recently visited Dr. Buckner for the first time and was very impressed. I was able to get an appointment easily (through ZocDoc), did not have to wait, and found him to be very attentive and caring. I think he gave me very thoughtful advice and followed up promptly by email with two specialist referrals. I plan to return and have recommended him to family and friends.
Dr Buckner is an intelligent, articulate and thoughtful physician -- definitely an excellent combination I would definitely recommend him and his practice
Went for a check up after seeing Zocdoc reviews. On the whole he's a really nice guy--personable, funny, friendly--but I don't know that I would go back to him as a doctor. I asked when I would get the results of a test and his response was "Email me Monday and I'll reply back to you with the results. It's less likely that I'll email the wrong person if I'm clicking reply as opposed to drafting it myself." I appreciate the candor but not the level of professionalism that I'd trust my health with.
Wasn't too happy. To the point where I will be seeing another doctor Wednesday and to the point I emailed him and let him know I didn't appreciate him laughing at my symptoms.
After a year of crappy insurance I can finally see Dr. Buckner again. I was never so happy to go to the doctor as I was today. He is one of the best in the city in my opinion!
He was very down to earth and professional at the same time. I felt at ease the entire time
Was my first visit and was very pleased I chose Dr. Buckner, would easily see him again if the need ever arises.
It was great, I think I was the first appointment of his of the day, so I was there even before his receptionist. He gave me the forms I needed, started filling them out and then just told me to come see him and finish them later. Took me into this office to discuss my back pain and then took a quick trip to the next room to do a basic exam. Was very helpful, offered me next step plans and even further plans if the pain continues. Very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. Also, had no wait time since I was the only one there!
I have been his patient for 20 years. If he weren't any good I'd have left. Still here!
He's a nice guy. Listened to what I wanted to accomplish (manage my bp/ routine physical). I guess I wanted someone more in depth than how he seemed to be. Very willing to give recommendations to other physicians and write prescriptions though.
Very friendly and helpful guy. Always a pleasure.
As always, Dr. Buckner is professional, caring and on top of his game. I highly recommend him. Wait, no I don't because I do not want to not be able to get an appointment!
Doctor Buckner was friendly and professional.
I had a very positive experience at Dr. Buckner's office. I submitted my ZocDoc paperwork on-line and had to fill in almost no paperwork when I arrived. He saw me within a few minutes of my scheduled appointment. He was extremely pleasant, although he no longer does travel vaccinations - only flu vaccinations. Realizing this quickly, he referred me to another physician, then he went the extra mile and set up an appointment for me. The referral was near-by (and on my way back to the office), covered by my insurance, and excellent. I think I just found my new Primary Care physician!
he is old school very detail oriented professional. Pays attention to what patient says .
walked right in and saw the doctor - no wait *at all* (never had that before in my life!). didn't seem pressed for time - sat down and spoke to me at length without another care in the world (never had that before either!). attentive & thoughtful.
He is an amazingly compassionate doctor!
Always a pleasure to see him. His judgement is very trustworthy.
I like the way he talks to you in his office first to see what's going on. He's a good listener and open to patient questions.
I like Dr. Buckner's style. He has a no-BS, professional approach with his patients, and just gets down to business. I appreciate his professionalism.
I'm afraid of doctors and he was so calm and reassuring! Very chill and down to earth.
Buckner is a really cool guy. Very friendly. I would def recommend him
I have to see Dr. Buckner fairly frequently due to a pretty scary disease that requires a team of specialists. He always tries to make thoughtful referrals, spend time with me, really listen to what's happening, and think about how to deal with my current symptoms. I cannot recommend him highly enough if you need a doctor who will be calm, reassuring and take charge of your medical situation.
Simply the best. I felt better when I left because Dr. Buckner advises clearly how to maintain health in a personal context.
Thorough and professional w/ the appropriate amount of personal attention.
He's a doctor cut from the old cloth -- one who cares about his patients and takes the time to listen to them.
Excellent GP. Very personable, calming presence.
As professional and sympathetic as ever.
Really lovely and caring man. Professional - knows his stuff - yet, very kind and polite.
Excellent visit. Attentive, no-nonsense, vocal, and confident. Exactly what I wanted and hope for in a physician.
he listened to my symptoms and didn't jump to any conclusions that can be magically cured with a drug. this was my first and very introductory visit that made a positive impression on me.
He was very kind and straight forward. It was just a quick consultation, so he was informative and well-versed in his field.
Seems to be a good doctor and took the time to listen to my concerns. Very comfortable experience. There's a lot wrong with primary care in general in the US but outside that, I have a very good first impression. Office is a bit out of date and cramped but it didn't impact my experience much.
He was very nice and sincere. I would definitely go back again!
Smart, personable, knows how to listen to a patient,
It was a very comfortable interaction and visit. I recommend him.
I left Dr. Buckner's office feeling a bit like 'what the heck just happened?" I went in for an annual physical and noted that I've felt extremely fatigued in the past year since being diagnosed with mono. Dr. Buckner was more concerned about my mental health, and thinks the likely cause is depression. I appreciate his referall to a mental health professional, and I do not discount that he may be right. However, I also complained of discomfort in my chest/rapid heart beat as well as a gland that has been swollen for a year. When I left, I had only spoken to the Dr. before he sent me off to a lab (he didn't have time to take my blood bc he took extra time to talk to me, which i greatly appreciated). However, I can't help but feel like the physical was incomplete, given that he never once listened to my heart beat, took my height or weight, listened to my breathing, or felt the gland that I had been complaining about. Dr. Buckner is most likely right that my fatigue is the cause of depression, but I don't think he should discount my concerns about the gland and heart without at least performing a physical exam.
He's been my primary doctor for almost 20 years now, my wife, too. He's very nice and never makes me wait.
Pretty terrible experience, no help at all with my condition and did not provide requested advice. Office staff is disorganized and rude. But really the significant issue is that the doctor has manipulated the ZocDoc reviews here. Based on search engine results there are 639 reviews which is outrageously high for a doctor in NYC. If you go into the search results 2 or 3 pages will see why this doctor has used SEO to manipulate HIS web presence... yikes.
Admittedly, Dr Buckner was running a little bit behind, but once I saw him, I figured out why. He spends so much time with you, going over everything you want to talk about and making sure you have everything you need. I felt like he honestly cared about my health situation, and it was so much better than seeing a doctor in a hospital multi-doctor practice, where they're in and out in their 10 minute time slot. He made recommendations for an OB/GYN and gave me an honest, no-holds-barred opinion of specialist services from another provider. He even ordered tests that my referral specialist will need, so I'll be ahead of the game. I would highly recommend Dr. Buckner to anyone, and plan to have my husband see him, too. Five stars plus!
Being in the medical field myself, I have learned to appreciate a good physician when I see one. Dr. Buckner is a fine example of one. He took the time to explain all of my questions thoroughly(even though the waiting room was full). I needed some documentation for school and he took the time to make sure I had everything I needed. Great doctor!!! I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family. Even though I live an hour away from his office, I feel that it is worth my time and effort for such quality service.
I absolutely love seeing Dr. Buckner! He is always very personable and makes a customary trip to the doctor very comfortable and enjoyable. He is also in the process of remodeling his office and it looks super nice!
Dr Buckner is a true professional and has a wonderful empathetic manner, as always.
I'm highly skeptical of a lot of these reviews. I felt like I was being rushed out of the office - the doctor didn't really seem to want to discuss my concerns. Also, employee turnover at this place is HIGH. There seems to be a new receptionist all the time. Not a great sign.
He's obviously got a lot of experience. Great to be able to see someone of his stature for a routine physical. Was quick but thorough and is a nice person
Office was extremely unprofessional. He gave me my strep test in his office next to his desk...
Right after I filled out paperwork I was seen. Dr. Buckner was a great doctor! The only thing I didn't like is that he rushed me when I was explaining the 2 other medications I was on. I only got to the first one that he gave me, but never the second. This was due to him taking me back quickly and not having my new chart with him. Highly Recommended!
Great doctor! Highly recommended!!!
I found Dr. Buckner to be very helpful and kind. I did experience a long wait with another patient in the waiting room, due to the Dr. being on the phone in his office. He was apologetic and sincere. I did not care for the receptionist. He was crashing around with the phone and things on his desk, made for an unpleasant wait. He seemed disinterested and aloof. Not a pleasant first impression.
Dr Buckner is more intelligent than most physicians. He is able instantly to adopt a perspective that incorporates patient history, test results, and all the other myriad factors that can contribute to health and well being. I feel grateful and fortunate to know Dr. Jeffrey Buckner.
Professional and knowledgable.
He makes you feel at ease, offers an objective assessment of things he can help with and things he cannot.
Dr. Buckner is a caring, very capable physician.
Very personable doctor. Went in and was seen immediately after filling out my paperwork.
An excellent, attentive doctor and a fine man.
Same day appointment./ Labs by email, follow up phone call to discuss out of range lab results. referral to excellent specialist at NYU. very content with outcome & professional interaction. Office renovated, much improved!
Great doctor. Very good advice and great attention to detail during the consultation. Look forward to my next appointment.
Dr. Bucker is very personable and makes you feel at ease. I went to him for my annual physical, and despite three attempts, he was unable to draw blood for my blood tests. He then referred me to a lab. He also referred me to another doctor to get my vaccine, which was a pain. Definitely not a one stop shop. On the upside, he's quick with responding to emails and would send the blood test results over email, and that saves one the hassle of trekking to the doctor's office.
Very thorough, talked me through everything I needed to know. Very open to my questions, answered all of them completely. Highly Recommend
Dr. Buckner is very nice and very knowledgeable. However, the office looks sloppy and run down. A paint job would do wonders! Also if you're waiting outside the door to his office you can hear just about everything that's being discussed inside, so be warned.
Dr. Buckner is a really nice guy and down to earth! I'd recommend him in a second!
Easy to relate to, and quick to get to the point of the visit. I like that he has a small office so you know you'll never get queued in a line of patients.
My visit was very satisfactory. Dr. Buckner as always was attentive, and very professional. He takes his time and listens to you.
Top experience with a top doctor/person.
Very congenial and helpful. Always responsive.
Takes the time to listen and speak to you. Highly recommended !
Great doctor. Very practical and low key but bright and observant.
Professional, courteous and respectful.
A great guy, and a fine doctor.
100% satisfied. Dr Buckner is highly intelligent, anticipates patients' needs, quick and professional.
As always, awesome.
Dr. Buckner has been my primary care physician for the last 12 years and he is by far the best doctor I have ever been to. Everyone I know that uses his services says the same thing he is simply the best.
I've been a patient of Doctor Buckner for years and give him my highest recommendation. He's cautious, thorough, compassionate -- and is well-connected to specialists throughout the city, which is very important when a referral is needed.
Very professional and knowledgeable doctor!
Great doctor, I was in and out of there for routine blood-work
It was good, I got there a little early and he took me right away.
He is excellent and actually listens to the patient. I never feel rushed.
Have been a patient of Dr. Buckner for over 15 years....
He is a fine and caring physician.
Always informative, casual, puts you at ease, encouraging for every bit of progress you make; he is a great person!!
he's been my & my wife's doctor for over 20 years....need I say more
He took care of all medical needs and also took time to listen to a situation that I'm in that is very stressful for me. He gave great advice!
A pleasure to visit with Dr. Buckner.
I cannot complain - efficient, comfortable, warm and easy to talk to.
Dr. Buckner answered all of my questions in depth and made me feel very comfortable and valued as a patient.
Very courteous and professional demeanor. His staff was lovely as well. I felt right at ease from the beginning until the end. Dr. Buckner took his time in explaining everything and was very patient with my questions. I found a new doctor!
Smallest office in the world. You literally walk into the receptionist desk. Looks like a closet when you walk in but there are a few small rooms that are arms length from side to side.... And I'm not a tall or long arm person. Viles of blood sitting in a box on the messy receptionist desk. Receptionist checked me in and said you can have a seat. Just asked me named. Only words spoken out of his mouth. Then crickets, nada, nothing.... Didn't say the doctor will be right with you. I am left wondering if the doctor will be right out or what... Is the doctor there. So I wait....and wait... The doctor emerged from one door and disappears into another. Still crickets...I'm the only one sitting in this tiny office...and I have no clue what's happening. Doctor went to a bathroom. The office is so small I can hear him pee (tmi I know), then flush.... (thinking...please wash, please wash)...but no water running after. YIKES!! He came out hands dry as a bone. EEKKK! Ok plan b... Tell him I have a cold so I'm not shaking hands. He finally invites me in to see him. The visit is so fast it was like a race. Told me he can't know anything until he gets blood work. Which in sure is true but he didn't ask my back story...history...filled out those 30 pages of forms for nothing I have to go back for the blood work results. Not looking forward to that. Hopefully he will slow down for that appointment.
Love dr. Buckner...been seeing him over 18 yrs. Always knowledgable and compassionate...
As always, cordial and professional. That's why he's been our family's doctor for almost 25 years.
Professional and friendly
Excellent, comprehensive, thorough.
Always a pleasure to see him.
He was fine while I was actually in the appointment, but Dr. Buckner's office is horribly disorganized. I'm still, almost a month later, trying to sort through billing issues that originated in this office. Furthermore, I'm still waiting on the results of the test they that ordered. If you want these guys to be on their game, you need to be on top of them.
Had a good appointment. He was very attentive and made me feel confortable. Perfect sized office - larger sized offices tend to have a clinic like feeling. Dr Buckner's office is cozy and makes you feel like you wont get lost.
The best physician I have had the pleasure to have. He is thoughtful, concerned and ready to deliver his expert opinion. You can't miss with Dr. Buckner.
He's Just Great And Compassionate.
Dr. Buckner was fabulous, down-to-Earth and helpful. I highly recommend him!
Very easy to talk to and interested in my well being. Took some blood from me like a pro. I was in and out very quickly. I would definitely recommend.
Great. Thank you
Dr.Buckner is an excellent and caring physician.
Great Doctor, Great Person!
Great doctor, professional. He listened to questions and responded very well to concerns I had. The office is small.
Always listens, great diagnostician, nice guy,.great Doctor
a real pro
Thorough, upfront and answered all of my questions. Great experience and would highly recommend!
Very good experience. Took me right on time, very helpful with explanation and referrals.
He's been my doctor since 1995, I can't imagine going anywhere else.
He is my primary doctor. Have been seeing him for years. If i didn't like him, I would change doctors.
Dr Buckner did not know what to recommend to me and he said he would have to research the matter. He never got back to me although I followed up numerous times. It was a total waste of money!
Dr. Bucker is a consummate professional and always makes me feel at ease with his approach to problem-solving. I never have a problem discussing any issues that i may have, no matter how embarrassed I may feel about them.
Dr. Buckner saw me right on time, and was very thorough. He has a great bedside manner, and is geniune. He walked through Plan A, B and C with me, which I greatly appreciated (I like to know what doctors are thinking when they treat me). I would definitely recommend Dr. Buckner to anyone who needs a good doctor!
Dr. Buckner is a great specialist! He is very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!
I have been going to Dr. Buckner for years and always count myself lucky to know him. He is always professional, personable, and never rushes you out the door.
SIMPLY THE BEST!
Saw me and gave me a referral I needed.
Small office, but very professional. Saw me right away and actually spent time talking to me about the issues I went in for. Wasn't rushing me out the door.
Perfect; professional; he has been my doc for eons
Very nice guy, took my questions, dealt with my neurosis. Highly recommended.
Highly professional and sensible practitioner.
Dr. Buckner really took the trouble to listen carefully, and was very thoughtful in his approach and diagnosis. The follow-up to my visit was not just fast and efficient but very caring and personal - Dr. Buckner emailed me my test results together with an explanation and some very helpful material on my condition.
Dont be fooled by the weird dingy office. This guy knows his stuff! NYU attending physician. Great doctor!!
Visit was good, he's a good listener and responds well to questions and concerns.
Office was chaotic and disorganized and dirty waiting room. Door handle practically falling off door to his office and papers stacked everywhere. He was initially nice and seemed ok enough for me to forget the presentation of his office and waiting room. He ran every test imaginable but upon reading normal results was unwilling to consider other reasons for my fatigue proclaiming a lot of diseases like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia were "in people's heads". It really turned me off and I never went back.
Always professional, always a pleasure. You don't feel as if you're in a mill where they're trying to rush everyone in and out the door.
Office is pretty small but Dr. Buckner listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease. It was easy to get an appointment with him and he spent time going over test results with me. Would go back again.
Such a pleasure to see as always. Friendly, fast, efficient and caring. Accommodated my change in schedule without a problem. Highly recommend!
Great Doctor - provides excellent referrals
I have been seeing Dr. Buckner for years and he has always been prompt and provided great service.
Dr. Buckner is the best!!!!!! Great bedside manner!!!!!!!!!!!
Very professional and thorough. Good listener and I didn't feel rushed.
No BS, no wait, quick attention. I Wish he were my dr in az
Dr. Buckner seems like a great guy, and seems very smart. The office is cramped and dark and leaves a bit to be desired.
Dr. Buckner has been my physician for 13 years and from our first meeting till the present he has been nothing short of wonderful. He is caring, listens to you and has never failed me. I feel very lucky to have a doctor like him.
He is extremely professional and sociable, as always. Highly recommended.
Thorough and helpful and always very pleasant
He was very thorough and even emailed me info on what he thought was wrong so that I could read up...I did not feel rushed - he spent way more than the standard 10-15 minutes.
DR BUCKNER is highly intelligent, explains everything clearly and thoroughly.
Excellent Doctor. Extremely knowledgable & helpful. Takes the time to address patient concerns, no matter how trivial. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
They don't come any better than Dr. B.
He is the best!
Great all around Primary Care doctor! Dr Buckner has been invested in my wellbeing and always asks the right questions. 9 times out of 10 less than a 5 minute wait, and never waited longer than 10 minutes. Highly recommended!!
Great doctor! Highly reccomend.
I have been a patient of Dr. buckners for many years. He is always very professional, listens to my problems, and symptoms, and knows what makes me feel better.
Annual physical was very brief....not as extensive/scary as I expected. Dr. Buckner is very nice and professional. I would recommend him!
Dr. Buckner is awesome!!!!!!!
I really enjoyed it as the consultation was really 1 on 1 and I did not feel rushed.
This doctor's appointment was a pleasure. Dr. Buckner went above and beyond helping me with such minor details as how to fill out the form for my lab work such that my other doctor would get the information. He really put me at ease and was very knowledgable.
Disorganized, no follow-up, was not clear in explaining my options. Very confusing visit and walked away not knowing what I had to do next or how - This is in response to a fairly serious health issue. Reception seemed to be very disorganized. Dr. Buckner is a nice guy, but I would never go back to him for treatment or consultation.
Dr. Buckner is fantastic.
I appreciate his no bs approach, has saved me thousands in medical fees from other doctors who keep me coming back and giving me a gazillion remedies etc. My health is still good and my bank account is better!
He really listens and takes the time to understand the patient.
very amicable and straightforward. went in for a general check-up, and left feeling confident that i was given the ole once-over proper.
He's a good doctor.
Dr. Buckner has chosen to leave the world of huge medical offices with dozens of doctors and take a small-town doctor approach with his practice. He is warm, personable and genuinely cares for his patients as people.
Dr. Buckner is wonderful and I would recommend him without hesitation.
Dr. Buckner is refreshingly unhurried, markedly attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Nice manner, made me feel very comfortable.
he reminds me of the movie "as good as it get" where the good doctor saved the little boy from a life time of suffering by just being a very good doctor and caring.
Knowledgeable, efficient and very pleasant to speak to. Highly recommend.
Loved him. He has a very quiet pleasant approach and the appointment went very well.
I decided to visit Dr. Buckner because of the reviews, but will definitely not be back. He treated me like a hypochondriac for asking questions and wrote off my concerns. He didn't even weigh or measure me and just asked for an estimate. I wanted to have blood work done, but he was going on vacation the following week and sent me to a lab. He nor his staff bothered to mention that I would be charged an additional copay for visiting the lab, which I ended up paying just to not have to go back to seeing him.
I'm a longtime patient and think highly of Dr. Buckner. Thoughtful and responsive, genuinely cares about the "whole" patient, not just the symptoms.
As usual a great doctors visit!
They billed me using the wrong code for a routine physical and my insurance would not cover it. I tried to get it fixed, but they never answered the phone or could take care of my issue. I gave up and just paid out-of-pocket.
He was great and made me feel at ease. Will go back

Very personable, efficient and pratical.
My wife & I have been patients of Dr Buckners for almost 23 years & all we can say is, if you need a General Practitioner/Family Doctor we highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Buckner
Excellent as always.
Excellent diagnostician. Excellent communication skills.
Have gone to him for many years and find him very professional.
He was very consultative which is a nice change. He didn't just treat my illness but offered suggestions on how to address in long term.
It was a very quick visit, but not in an abrupt way - he right on in his diagnosis and made sure to confirm I ha dno other concerns before I left. The office is not much to look at when you enter, but the doc seems to really know his stuff.
Really nice and easy to talk to. Interested in making life easier for you.
Very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly.
very welcoming and efficient
As always had a great visit. Dr Buckner is a great doctor always willing to help and always a very warm bedside manner.
Straightforward, no wasted time
