Hear from Dr. Buentello's patients!
Dr. Buentello was a great Dr! He was very friendly, informative, and patient. The Dr and staff went out of their way to help us out and made sure my husband's eye was ok. Definitely recommend them and he's staying as our family Dr.Christina B.
Everyone is great! From the girls at the front desk, the technicians and mostly the Dr’s. I went in with major problems with my eyes that weren't being taken seriously by another Dr. They Diagnosed my problems, prescribed meds and a treatment plan. On follow up apt I met another Dr and he told me about a treatment that I needed. They were going to schedule that treatment for 2 weeks and I asked if it could be done right then since I was already there. 10 minutes later I was getting the treatment. My eyes are much better now but thanks to my old Dr I have permanent damage because he didn’t listen to me and take me seriously.Dawn C.
