Dr. Robert Buras was my breast cancer surgeon who performed a mastectomy on me. Dr. Buras was kind, compassionate, patient, and made me feel like I was his most important patient. Indeed, everyone associated with the Fortnay Breast Center was fantastic.
Dr. Buras wasn't just a great surgeon, he provided a comforting and informative initial meeting. On the day of my surgery, he was there with positive energy to help me feel confident and as relaxed as I could. During the followup appt., he was assuring and supportive. He's the whole package of what a surgeon should be. If you get Dr. Buras as your surgeon, you will be very lucky!!!
Dr Buras and his team were right with me the entire time during my cancer diagnosis. My questions were always answered and alternative care plans were offered. During all doctor's appointments I was given so much care and consideration and always aware that my opinions and decisions were key to the success of my recovery.
Dr. Buras has warm and personable interactions with patients that are informative, supportive and highly respectful of the patient's perspective. He invites patients to actively participate in decision-making related to their care- if the patient wishes to do so- describes options available for care when these are available, and ensures that information is understood before proceeding. He is open to discussing questions or concerns to whatever degree the patient desires and has a gentle bedside manner that complements his surgical skills. As a healthcare professional, I particularly appreciated being able to communicate with Dr. Buras as both a colleague and a patient, weighing statistical probabilities for various forms of therapy to determine the best course of action tailored to my needs and based on the most current research evidence. Throughout my entire surgical experience with Dr Buras, I felt that I was in competent and caring hands, supported in all facets of pre-, intra- and post-operative care, and respected as an individual throughout. I would highly recommend Dr. Robert Buras to anyone needing breast cancer surgery.
Dr. Buras and his team have been wonderful! He did a wonderful job on my surgery. He was kind, patient, and thorough in all pre-op and post-op appointments. Thank you, Dr. Buras and Team!Sue Franklin
Shared on behalf of wife, Monique. Excellent care by everyone treating me. Everyone always had encouraging smiles and was very nice to me. I would like to thank everybody that took care of me when I was in the hospital. And I wish to thank everybody who saw me during the PreOp and PostOp. I would not hesitate to recommend the Breast Clinic to anyone needing treatment for breast cancer. Merci Beaucoup from Monique in Gambrills
My name is Donna Loy, I just have to say Dr. Buras and his entire team are amazing!!! Being told I had breast cancer was the scariest time of my entire life . But from the minute I walked into the Fortney breast care Center, they totally took over and made the scary thing so much more easier to handle for me . Their compassion, information and total kindness made every difference in the world .And I love the way Allison took time out of her day to call and check on me . I have not stopped talking about this entire experience of mine with the breast Center. I have recommended them to everyone I know, if they should need their services . So yes my expectations were beyond met . Thank you thank you to everyone involved in getting me through this . Dr. Buras is badass!! Just loved him!!Thank you!!Donna Loy
Recently overcame an unexpected process in life. All I had was my faith. My faith led me to a group of doctors at AAMC, one being Dr. Buras. Class Act. From the first meeting Dr. Buras respected my wishes of my faith, as I trusted his expertise as a breast surgeon. I truely was blessed because he was more than just an excellent, knowledgable surgeon. He was patient, calming, peaceful and only gave me the necessary information. His suggestion from the begining was one we went with for surgery and so grateful we did. There was more that was unseen by scans. Dr. Buras took the time after surgery to follow up with me himself and still had PA to do so as well. Surgery is never a fun thing however the detail and grace he provided was displayed physically and even emotionally. Very effective. Thank you Dr. Buras and team (so many amazing people) , for doing your part to restore life. Always you and your team will be a part of me.
While skill and knowledge are important traits for a physician, compassion and kindness are equally important. Dr. Buras exhibits all of these qualities.
Very attentive and proactive to the care I needed. Was able to get me into surgery the same day I saw him for a terrible abscess I had on my breast. Gave my husband and me his direct cell line and answered it whenever we called and was willing to assist us not matter how big or small of a problem we had when we called.
Dr. Buras' bedside manner was such to make me feel comfortable with a very uncomfortable situation. His explanations were easy to understand. I would go back to him if needed.
Dr. Buras and my nurse Navigator Alyson were wonderful. I believe Dr. Buras did an outstanding job performing my bilateral mastectomy. I am healing well and hopefully in a month or so will be back to my old self. Thank you. Jackie Mitchell
From the moment I met Dr. Buras, I knew I was in good hands. He was very thorough in his examination and explained all my options, answering all my questions with research to back up his explanations. I had a bilateral mastectomy and my surgery and healing went very smoothly. He coordinated my care with the plastic surgeon who did the subsequent breast reconstruction. I felt very prepared and relaxed prior to surgery and appreciated Dr. Buras checking in on me while I was waking up after surgery. I am very pleased with my care and results from Dr. Buras!
Dr. Buras is an outstanding member of the amazing team that has cared for me during my experience with breast cancer. Before meeting with Dr. Buras, I was scared, upset, and stressed out. All that ceased once I met with the Dr. Buras. From the time I called to make an appointment to now, everyone welcomed me, reassured me, gave me hugs, and made it clear I wasnt in this alone. Dr. Buras himself was fantastic. He took all the time needed to explain my options, along with risks and benefits. He explained things clearly, but he wasnt condescending about it. He was very respectful, kind, and reassuring. When I asked questions, he answered them and made sure I understood the answer. Importantly, when my friend who accompanied me to the appointment asked questions, he made sure to maintain eye contact with her as he answered her questions. He and the plastic surgeon handling my reconstruction have worked together several times before, and that was clear in the way they consulted together when my treatment plan had to change. I also have to recognize Alyson Figlioli, my nurse navigator, who reassured me and answered any questions I had. I would heartily recommend Dr. Buras to anyone facing a breast cancer diagnosis.
Dr. Buras is very personable, takes his time with you and seems to be concerned with your ease.
Kind, answered all my questions, takes his time, good bed side manner, staff is wonderful.
I saw Dr. Buras for the first time yesterday he drained a cyst in my right breast that I had had for a year and that was starting to bother me. He was very courteous, knowledgeable and took a lot of time I was actually impressed by that!! I had to wait for quite a while between different parts of the appointment, but as long as I get good treatment, I dont mind. I will make him my new breast doctor!!
Dr. Buras was my breast surgeon after a diagnosis of stage 3 bc. He was always encouraging, kind, as well as honest. He took time to meet with me and inform me of my options. The surgery went as smoothly as possible and I recovered quickly. A year after a bilateral mastectomy, I am feeling well and all of my doctors are optimistic that I will achieve a complete cure.
He does not listen to your questions. Does not care about patients. Is very will informed on what your insurance will cover and is willing to submit patients to every procedure that will make him money.
