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.

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!

I was surprised how nice and professional the building looked. The doc listened to me, and I feel we had a good conversation about what I need to ask and what she needed to tell me. She had read my records ahead of the appointment so that she was up to date on my medical issues.

I came in for a Medicare check-up. It was not clear ahead of time that this visit was only to check my vitals and look at tests that I might need. THe paperwork before the visit was not clear on this. Dr. Budesa took time to answer questions but had to change it to an office visit.

The times that Dr. Budesa couldn't see me right at appointment time were because patients before me took up extra time due to health concerns. Sometimes I've taken up extra appoint time due to my health concerns.

We seem to struggle with right questions to ask. I've been after an updated MRI on my back. That's my primary complaint. For years now. I feel she doesn't always listen to me. & I hav to suggest a plan

She was prompt, efficient and knowledgeable, but came across as slightly abrupt. I mean very slightly. More like she was anxious to get to the next patient. Not enough that I would hold it against her and if I needed to see her again, I'd be perfectly ok with it.

I forgot to ask about bone density test I took a few months ago. Still dont know results. I do not know how to access the online help line. This is a source of frustration. I got mail paper work on my mammogram but not bone density info.

After blood tests came back, I emailed MyHealth and directed my questions to Dr Budesa, wanted to have her explain two tests that had high numbers, a nurse followed up on a call back that day and said she would tell Dr Budesa I had some questions, and I would hear back the next day. No answer from Dr Budesa and it's been 5 days. Does she not do follow up calls when a patient has questions? I'm Disappointed.
