Dr. Buitrago handled my foot so gently that I was afraid she had not "found" the pain that had dogged my steps all month. But she gave me an orthotic type solution that allowed me to walk pain free --and instantly. Thank you Dr. Buitrago! Her X-ray person is also kind, efficient and made the process easy.

I've been going to Dr. Buitrago for a year now and she is great! She was able to completely treat my chronic plantar fasciitis after trying several methods (pt, pills, shot, and finally shock wave therapy). She is conservative, very thorough and up-to-date on current treatments. Her office staff is friendly - from the front desk to the back. My daughter and husband also see her for other issues; she is our family foot doctor!

I had an extremely positive experience. Dr. Buitrago was professional and personable. I always like to know the "how" and "why" of the situation and she was patient and answered all of my (many) questions with straightforward answers. I was able to get imaging, a diagnosis, and treatment on the first visit which is almost unheard of and very much appreciated!

She's a genuine hardworking individual, who CARES about her work. I don't care if she knows my name by a file when she enters, she says it right upfront :) She remembers her work. That helps you feel comfortable to talk to her about your problematic issue(s). I'm glad that I stumbled upon Ms. Buitrago this Fall 2017. I had my surgery just this December 2017, and so far, it's looking great! I would highly recommend her as your DPM.

Dr Buitrago was referred to me by another patient who had been impressed with her approach. After surgery and interacting with her over the last few months, I highly recommend. She is very responsive, takes the time to answer your questions and was very knowledgeable. She makes sure that the solution is right for the patient. The staff working with her directly (once you get past the appointments/check-in) are very responsive and helpful. Those at the front desk were not overly helpful or friendly but worth putting up with to get the best results and that would be Dr Buitrago.
