About Nigel Buist, MD

I became a doctor because I have always wanted to help people solve their problems. Being a doctor provides me with an opportunity to serve others. My approach to patient care is centered around teamwork-including the patient, regular interaction/community with the patient (concierge-like), honesty, and caring and compassionate care. Outside of work, I enjoy piloting, playing tennis, reading, traveling, cooking, and spending time with my child...
