Victoria is a top notch provider. I have had several large medical concerns over the past 3 years and I could not hae asked for a better provider.

The appointment was for 1 hour with the provider. However, some of the time was spent with the nurse. The provider did not spend the full amount of the rest of that time with the patient and mentioned that she had other patients waiting for her. I didn't feel that the patient received the full amount of time allotted to this visit.

Victoria even had the foresight to extend my appointment time, to be sure to have enough time available to fully discuss my overall health after my recent hospital stays and hip replacement surgery, etc.

Victoria is one of the best providers you have there,of those I have seen. She is knowledgeable, efficient, caring, and lets me participate in decisions about my treatment. She is awesome at what she does, and I consider I am in good hands when I see her.

This provider was excellent. Thorough, thoughtful and helped me to form a plan of action to address the problem that I was having. I would have her as my primary provider if she was available.

One of the best experiences with a provider that I have ever had.

The wellness visit went very well. We talked, she explained things clearly but did not examine me physically. I have no problem with that since I didn't think there was a need for it. My concern is that my "My Chart" record shows results of my physical exam when I wasn't examined on that day except for ht, wt, BP, and tested with a black finger cuff monitor(?).

My MD in this office referred to Victoria Buchanan for a pap smear. I have had more that 50 paps in my lifetime. This pap was the worst experience ever. It was very painful and she "took a chunk" out of me instead of the procedure that an MD does. I bled all day and evening, which has never happened after a pap.

I had never seen Buchanan before, but scheduled my appointment with her since my visit was more urgent & I didn't want to wait to see my normal provider. She was absolutely wonderful. Listened, empathized & helped me so much. I'm thankful for her & the time she spent with me. Very impressed.

Too much information was given me before the results of testing were known. ie: I was told this could be lung cancer because I smoked prior to 1980. Even if this is possible I don't think it should be discussed until other more likely causes of my symptoms were eliminated.
