This is the best care I have ever received. Dr. Budesa has taken great care of me for over a decade now. We were one of her first patient's when she joined Firewood. Her assistant Megan is professional, personable with a great sense of humor. The ladies at the reception are all wonderful.

I have been so pleased with the attentive care I've consistently received from both, Dr Budesa and her team. Dr B has an obvious willingness to listen to her patient, explain what's not understood, order proper tests when needed, always helps get my prescriptions processed in a timely fashion - we communicate mostly online for such matters and my requests are promptly fulfilled. I do recommend this practice and Dr B to friends for all of the above reasons and more.

Dr. Budesa was quick to recognize my medical need and do lab and other testing.

  Nov 2, 2022
Dr. Budesa is an excellent service provider, her popularity and case load makes it difficult to fit into her busy schedule. Given this challenge she still manages to treat each patient with professional skill and expertise.

  Oct 28, 2022
The office scheduled around my own schedule, making it easy to make an appt. There are many reasons why I continue coming back to Dr Budesa's office! Because she is always 'on time or (close as possible), she actually listens to why I am there and always offers sensible approaches to whatever is being treated. I think she Is ethical, Informed, and efficient with a congenial personality, easy to talk with. These are a few reasons why I always refer friends to her, not sure how many (if any!) have followed through but regardless, I always feel confident in referring a friend to her care (that of the office team, too). I feel fortunate having her for a dependable primary Dr for around 7 -8 yrs!
