How likely are you to recommend Dr. Buchanan?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Buchanan was everything a good doctor is: excellent bedside manner, expertise in her field. I had surgery to remove a lump and she did a great job of hiding the incision. I was worried it would leave a big scar but it does not look that way at all! From beginning to end she explained everything succinctly and truly treated me great.
