My family LOVES the care we receive from this clinic, especially Dr. Buckler. She is responsive, she listens and researches questions that we have had. Even though we moved closer to another clinic, we will travel the extra miles and hours to stay with this clinic. Best Providence experience we have had in our 25 years with this HMO.

[...] Really like Dr. Buckler, but felt her hands were tied discussing medical issues other than routine care as she kept having to say if we discussed, it would be billed later. I stopped asking health questions so I wouldn't get an extra bill. This seems ridiculous. In the past year, I have concerns that one normally would discuss as one ages and sees changes. I do not want to have to come in for another appointment and I feel every year I should have a consult on several issues during a general health check up.

I have nothing but the highest praise for the medical staff at Providence Mill Plain. During the past year my husband had a serious medical problem and the support we received from Dr. [...], Dr. Andrea Buckler and other staff at Providence was absolutely fantastic. We received many calls asking how things were and if we needed anything, some many months later. I can't thank them or praise them enough for the care and compassion they showed to us.

My experience with Dr. Buckler was with her skill with OMT (in the past 3-4 months) she is my primary care physician and I find her very knowledgeable and skilled. This was my first time for this type of treatment for my TMJ. Dr. Buckler was very helpful in relieving my symptoms and pain as well as other area's of my body. I would and have recommended her to others.

seems overwhelmed at times, workload too high; reluctant to partner with a specialist when unclear of diagnosis.
