Dr. Buitrago is very professional and compassionate. Exactly what I look for in a doctor! She listens to my problem and then offers technical advice that I can understand - with a game plan so I'll know what to expect in the future. The staff is accommodating and easy to work with - another bonus that doesn't always match up with the doctor.

My foot problem is somewhat routine, not serious, I've been there twice and long wait both times . I know it is not shocking to wait in a doctors office , but an hour and half wait to be seen for 5 minutes , she could have seen 15 patients in that time . I dint see thee come out or go in while I was there.

Physician literally *did not* perform an exam on the injured foot. Asked what pain I was experiencing and suggested an MRI. Did not extend or flex or anything to elicit pain to get a better understanding of what was going on.

I don't feel like another number. Dr. Maria Buitrago cares about me, her patient. She looks into your eyes and "listens" to understand what I am going through and is able to give me answers to all my questions. She never makes me feel rushed! Thank you and to her staff too!

I was happy with the treatment she didn't give me any X-rays which I think was professional in this case. I just don't like to wait 45 minutes after my official appointment time.

I think Dr. Buitrago was very sweet and great bedside manner. I am waiting to see what I think about her as a doctor until I see if what she prescribed actually works. Her staff is not the friendliest and the offices were not the cleanest I've ever been in, but she is one of the NICEST doctors I've seen in a long time. Will know more in a couple of weeks.

Overall, I would say this was an average provider visit. I didn't wait super long, but it was past my appointment time. Dr. Buitrago seemed nice enough, but she must have literally been in the office with me for only 2 minutes. To be fair, I also had a very common, straight forward, problem. However, she seemed to want to get me out of there asap. I also wrote a follow up message to her on the portal they are promoting, and she never replied. I had to keep calling the office to get answers. I would probably go back, but I wouldn't be excited about it.

Meeting Dr. Buitrago for the first time was extremely satisfying. She has a wonderful personality and she clearly explained the treatment options that were best for my recovery. Having had surgery so many times in the past, I could easily recognize Dr. Buitrago's professionalism as soon as she began to discuss what to expect during this surgery.

Dr. Buitrago was very knowledgeable about my toenail issue and was able to answer all of my questions. I did not feel rushed, and the wait time was reasonable (maybe 15 minutes). She also offered me two treatment options, a topical prescription or an oral prescription, and thoroughly described the pros and cons of each option before allowing me to decide which option I would prefer.

I would not recommend Dr Buitorago, I went two times and each time the wait time was ridiculous. She told me that my injury was normal and would heal. After getting some shots, that pain away and then came back. I called back again and wanted to speak with Dr Buitorago, her assistant said she would have her call me. When her as isn't rant called me back she said that Dr Buitorago couldn't call me back cause she was too busy, and if I wanted to speak with her I could come in?!?! WTF. I've never had a doctor say that. Needless to say I went to get another opinion from Doctor that would communicate with their patients.
