Past provider was more in depth with annual exam by checking reflexes, hands, feet, checking for moles, breast and under arm exam. Other than a quick glance in my throat and ears, checking the glands in my neck, pushing on my stomach and listening to my breathing, the rest of the exam was verbal questions. I assume this is the new way of doing annual exams.

Dr Buckler is AWESOME. The downside to having the "perfect" Dr is that her schedule is usually full, when I need her most (short-notice illness).

Dr. Buckler and staff were able to give me a referral to a Providence Specialist, order a shingles vaccine, and provide a referral to my eye care clinic. The blood tests were posted promptly to my MyChart account. Dr. Buckler also asked about any health concerns and conducted an extra test based on my responses. The results relieved my concerns and took that question off my worry list.

Dr. Buckler is amazing! I was recently hospitalized at [...]. They did not inform any of my doc's that I was there. When Dr. Buckler found out from my family, she immediately called the hospital to check on my condition. She then made sure that I had a follow up appt. with her. She spent a lot of time with me at that visit, helping me to set plans and goals. With her help, I now have a plan to better my life and my health! Thank you, Dr. Buckler!!

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!
