At this time, Dr. Buchanan is not accepting new patients for evaluation for mast cell activation diseases. We will update this website if/when she begins accepting new patients again. Please check here for any updates as the offices will direct you to check the website if you call with inquiries. It will probably be mid to late 2023 before a decision will be made about accepting new patients.
Dr. Buchanan sees selected new complex patients by specific referral from a current care provider (often a clinical geneticist, autonomic cardiologist, neurologist, gastroenterologist, hematologist, allergist-immunologist) who requests her input and assistance with their patient’s evaluation and management via a referral letter supported with previous records.
The typical prospective new complex patient has suspected or confirmed aberrant mast cell activation/mast cell activation syndrome, often associated with comorbidities such as hypermobility disorders and autonomic dysfunction.
After a review of the information provided in the referral letter and relevant records, a decision will be made whether the prospective patient is appropriate to be placed on Dr. Buchanan’s several-month waiting list for a comprehensive new patient evaluation.
