About

Bio

My name is Dr Thomas S Buehner. I am an certified HIV/AIDS Specialist. I also have been treating my patients for Hepatitis C. I began working in this field in 1990 in San Diego. I am currently living in Palm Springs. I am very passionate about my work. I give the kind of care that I would expect to receive if I were a patient. I was also the Medical Director of a drug and alcohol treatment center in San Diego for 6 years and am certified by American College of Addiction Medicine to prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone) for treatment of opiate withdrawal.

Specialties
