David Buchin, M.D.
When I met Dr. Buchin I was at a crossroads. I needed to have knee replacement surgery, but they wouldn't do it until I lost at least 100 pounds. I was 5 feet tall and 286 pounds. There was no way I could achieve that goal. However, when I met Dr. Buchin he promised me that I could lose the weight and get down to my "fighting weight" of 120 lbs. Even though I didn't think it could be done, I placed my trust in him and had bypass surgery July 2008. With the help and support of Dr. Buchin, Sophia and his staff I lost the weight! Within one year I was at my goal of 120 pounds and that following summer had a bi-lateral knee replacement.
To say that he changed my life would be an understatement. My BMI went from 56 to 24. I am in excellent health and can do anything. I know that if I hadn't gone to him my outcome would not have been as successful. I had visited another surgeon who was not as caring or interested in how I perceived this journey.
It was only through the support of Dr. Buchin and his staff that I was able to reach such a successful outcome. I recommend him and his staff without reservation.
