“His job as a doctor is more than just a career. He is a compassionate person that wants to make a difference by saving people’s lives. He always works extra to help. I see him as a modest and humble person. The hospital and staff are just a phone call away if you have questions and other concerns. ”

“Dr. Bueno did my Acalasia surgery and was great, my family and I were so satisfied of how everything ended up. I was 22 when I had my surgery and after 4 years I can barely see my scars. Dr. Bueno as a doctor is very comfortable to have around and offers his patients the best possible care. Thanks for everything Dr. Bueno. ”

“I have been operated from a first rib resection 3 weeks ago for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. In my opinion Dr. Bueno is magnificent. Before my surgery I visited him a couple of times and he was warm, caring and patient. He is such a funny guy. I was shocked to read other reviews where people called him rude because in my case, that did not happen. In fact, before my surgery he presented me another patient who already went through my surgery several months earlier so I could share thoughts with him. In my opinion that went above and beyond. I also seen him often since my surgery and each experience has been great. I can’t say enough things to describe his perfect personality. ”

“Dr. Bueno saved my left lung when I was diagnosed with carcinoid tumor in my left bronchus. Before I visited Dr. Bueno I went to several others and they told me that I would lose all of my lung, which was wrong. I have 6 years since I was operated, and I’m still being followed to make sure there is no reoccurrence.”

“I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Dr. Bueno was extremely confident, and explained me exactly what where the three surgical options that he had before opening me up. I knew that I was a difficult case, because I previously had roux en y gastric bypass surgery 10 years earlier. Dr. Bueno and Dr. Goldberg did a fantastic job. Six months later and when I did the PET/Ct they were negative for any signs of cancer. ”
