Dr. Buhler grew up in the Shenandoah Valley near Lexington and considers herself a Virginian through and through.
At the age of five, she was certain of her career path. And in sixth grade, the aspiring doctor wrote a paper about how she would make her dream come true. It included detailed notes about where she would go to college and how long her residency would be. But it was her third year of medical school when she realized what her specialty would be. During that time, her father was diagnosed with breast cancer, which affects less than 2 percent of men in the U.S. “A local surgeon ignored the lump Dad discovered in his chest. I felt it and advised him to get a second opinion.” A biopsy found breast cancer. After successful treatment, her father healed – while Dr. Buhler focused on her specialty as a breast radiologist.
When she’s not working, Dr. Buhler, her husband John and their three sons enjoy a variety of outdoor activities This includes hiking, boating, wakeboarding and skipping rocks on the James River.
