For much of my life I have struggled to find a doctor who takes me seriously, listens to me, respects me, and is sensitive to my needs. Dr. Andrea Buckler embodies all of these things and more. She is kind, intelligent, well informed, professional, compassionate, down to earth, real, I could go on for quite some time about all of her excellent qualities. She is most certainly the BEST doctor that I have ever had. Ever. Buckler rocks!
