Dr. Busby performed my explant recently and did a great job. He is very experienced in performing this operation and is board certified. He is confident and caring and puts his patients at ease prior to surgery. He also answers all questions and takes his time with his patients. Dr. B is the best surgeon in the Portland area to take care of your needs. The office staff and surgery center team are confident and caring. I couldn't be happier with the results and the care Dr. Busby has brought to myself.
