Although this was a video visit, I felt very comfortable with talking to the team
He was xcellent listened and report conversation exceptionally consistent. Had clarity in treatment plan and changes that need to be changed.
We have great confidence in your fine staff
I felt encouraged that he will be able to help me.
We were not notified that the “in person†meeting with Dr. B had been changed to virtual until a few days before as we were making reservations for place to stay overnight. We live in Chico, so an in person meeting in Stanford is too far away for us to drive in one day. Virtual meetings are much easier for us.
An exceptional physician who understands RLS like no other.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Buchfuhrer and Dr. Aviv; thank you for always taking good care of me
I have been a patient for 6 years and in that time, you have demonstrated the highest quality of patient care.

All excellent.
Everything good.
Fantastic experience w/both dr.
I spent most of my time with an associate of Dr. Buchfuhrer.
Dr. B. was very good at explaining everything to me. However, my brain falls short when it comes to retaining the info.
The doctor and his colleagues were very thorough in their check-up of progress of my condition. Dr. B also discussed updated, recent findings on the medication & supplements prescribed.
I should have been made aware of the considerable side effects I would encounter when & I went off the medication I had been taking.
Dr. Buchfuhrer wonderful as always. I have great confidence in him and fortunate to be able to be patient of his.
Did not summarize appt. on day of visit; referred for iron test - after lab had already closed without Rx for test until requested by phone.
Dr. Buchfuhrer is outstanding - good technician, good communicator, professional, caring.
Excellent! Very high marks on all accounts.
Sleep clinic is exceptional!

DR. Buchfuhrer is outstanding - personable, an expert in his field, cares about me.
Fellow Jaynesh Patel, M.D. was offered excellent check in & care.
She forgot to fax Rx. I will run out on vacation this week.
This provider is outstanding in every way, from medical expertise to bedside manner to concern for patients. He went the extra-mile for me.
4 visiting observers plus Dr. B. & staff was a crowd - like a side-show.
