Dr. Buffolino is the real,deal. Competent, gracious and very thorough. She gave me sound and helpful advice on avoiding foot pain in the future. Have not thought about my feet since my appointment and that's because they don't hurt anymore. The office staff was very welcoming and helpful. Congrats on jobs well done.

I think the visit went well. The young lady who took my X-rays was very nice as well. My dr spoke in high speed as if she was in a rush but over all I liked her. I didn't enjoy the receptionist she was a little rowdy and unprofessional with the convo she had with her peer. (not the X-ray lady)

The Doctor was nice and knowledgeable however she spent less then 5 minutes with me. She did explain things but in general it felt like she was rushed even though i was there very early. I will return but I would hope that could be improved

Everything went great!!! I was greeted kindly at the front desk, not long after taken in the back for xrays and then immediately seen by the doctor. She knew exactly was my problem was and even explained to me about another problem I had and didnt even know of. She reassured me that my medicine for a toenail fungus wouldnt kill my liver. I felt completely comfortable and trusting in her. This is the woman to see everyone.
