Dr. Buzzell was great! He took the time to ask questions, listen, do an examination, took x-rays, and provided a diagnosis that was reasonable and cost efficient. My son was instructed to follow-up with Dr. Buzzell in 4 weeks if the physical therapy, and anti-inflammatories didn't help with his shoulder pain.

I filled it all paperwork online. Waiting in a cattle call to be logged in it's not great my family got to the counter her computer crashed twice everything else was top-notch.
