  1. Dr. Buchanan is the bomb. He is intelligent, calm, mellow, will explain everything to you in detail without making you feel stupid. He gives you all the options and his opinions, but leaves the final decision up to you. He gives an air of quiet confidence and you can tell he is genuinely concerned about his patient’s well being. I have total confidence in him in the (somewhat complicated) work he did on my neck, and would confidently recommend him to anyone needing spine work done.

    • Dr Buchanan recently did my lumbar spinal fusion for stenosis and spondylolisthesis. I couldn’t be more pleased with the care received by Dr. Buchanan. His bed side manner is kind and personable. The minamally invasive surgery is healing very well. I recommend him and CDA Spine to anyone needing treatment for back injuries or back surgery. Just can’t say enough about how pleased I am that I went to Dr Buchanan.

    • If you please .can any one help me to contact dr. Coloin
      many thanks
