We've gone to Dr. Busse for five-plus years. Today, at our annual checkup and not before, we were told Dr. Busse wouldn't accept our insurance because we purchased it on the exchange. Denying children care is not an appropriate, or even humane, tactic for making a political statement especially when that child - his patient - has no input into the decision. What other bills passed by Congress might he disagree with that will give him the right to deny care and discontinue treatment? It's a slippery slope when businesses let political beliefs dictate business protocols - something I think Dr. Busse would be especially sensitive to. What's ironic is before the Affordable Health Care Act was passed my son couldn't get coverage because it was classified as a pre-existing condition. This is a doctor who cares more about making asinine political statements than providing care to children. Parents should consider if this is the kind of person they want treating their child.

My experience was so bad that I'm reporting him to the medical licensing board. The first 45 minutes of the visit were fine. He was kind and soft spoken. We had no problems at first. Then when we started to discuss treatments for my son, a switch in him flipped. He started yelling and degrading me. It was like Jekyll and Hyde. He criticized me for asking questions. I left the office and cried for a solid hour after that. My son was terrified. I have NEVER been treated like that. He has very major anger management issues. He may be great to 90% of his patients, but trust me being one of the 10% he's cruel to is awful and I wouldn't wish it on anyone else.

I really love taking my two boys to see Dr. Busse. He is extremely knowledgeable and had good bedside manor when we had surgery with him this last September. I was a nervous wreck having to take my 2 year old in for surgery; but Dr Busse was very helpful with answering all of my questions and putting me at ease. The staff was excellent. He has a very nice play area for the kids with tons of toys and even video games. The wait can be a bit long, but he is a really good doctor and the play area makes up for it. He is a very sweet and gentle man, and I was very impressed how well he communicated with my two children. I would recommend him to any of my friends.

We saw Dr. Busse for the first time and my son LOVED it. I was skeptical since this was our first visit to an eye Dr. Dr. Busse was wonderful with my son. He took time with us and performed many tests and kept my son talking and "unafraid". Even made small talk with my son and his love of Star Wars. We will be back. The office was VERY kid friendly. Very eclectic.

His dirty office, outdated equipment, and uncomfortable mannerisms aside, Dr. Busse is extremely thin-skinned, arrogant, and unprofessional. After several visits with our child we are transferring to a different specialist. This began when on the adivce of our primary pediatrician, we sought a second opinion from one of Dr. Busse's peers. Unfortunately he took this personally because apparently he is uncomfortable sharing his work with others in the field. Where we thought second opinions were commonplace and a truly confident professional would have no problems with the process, our perception of his insecurities and ego were underestimated. The care we received elsewhere was not only more comprehensive than any Dr. Busse had provided but utilized far more current technology and rendered a significantly different outcome. We're not looking back. Dr. Busse has lost our business and any chance that we would ever refer anyone to his practice. Please be warned.

This review is for Dr. Busse. Regardless of his staff or office personnel, Dr. Busse is an excellent doctor who cares for his patients. He has taken care of my daughter since 1994 and I would not take her to anyone else. Putting up with the front office is a small price to have such a caring professional and not a good enough reason to go to an inferior health care professional.

his office staff is not. June who schedules the surgerys couldn't tell me what my co-pay would be and never returned my call as to whether or not we should still be patching in the time leading up to surgery. The receptionist was extremely rude, telling me that Dr Busse's assistant had not returned my phone call because they were really really really really busy with patients. OK, well...my child is actually a patient of yours as well. If it hadn't been such a chore to get this surgery scheduled, I would find a new doctor.
