“From the moment I stopped in to make an appointment(Chantel) with Dr Busch, to getting a nice reminder phone call from Margie, to having xrays done(Jane), to having my visit with Dr Busch I felt welcomed and well cared for ! I am a retired physician so I have an idea of how a good office runs. I give this team an A. On my appointment day I was greeted warmly by the desk staff, my wait time was minimal, and I found the staff working directly with Dr Busch (Rebecca, Nick, Margie, Jane) incredibly empathetic, caring and helpful.
As to the primary reason for my visit, seeing Dr Busch, he was so pleasant on initial hello, and he took lots of time to listen to my concerns. He then took time to ask me questions and do his exam to figure out what was going on. He explained his thoughts regarding a possible diagnosis, tests he wanted to do, and a treatment plan. He gave me hope that I will be able to “get my life back” and get back to exercising. I give him an A+.
In summary, if you are looking for a wonderful rheumatologist with a great supporting cast look no further than the Family Arthritis Center.”

Reviews of Dr. Busch
“After relocating here to West Palm Beach, my husband I both had an initial visit with Dr. Busch who was the most thorough rheumatologist either one of us has ever experienced. His patient manager, Margie amazingly was able to get our records from our previous doctors in a very short time. Highly recommend Family Arthritis Center.”

“Cannot say enough about this doctor. His patience, knowledge, and empathy far surpassed anything I could have expected. I really liked his conservative approach. He is not one to have you go through a million tests before treating. He also has a WONDERFUL “bedside” manner. Thank you Dr Busch.”
