Buzz was a 1981 graduate of Tulsa Edison High School, a 1985 graduate of Northeastern State University at Tahlequah and a 1989 graduate of Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine, now OSU Medical School in Tulsa. After medical school he did his internship in Mesquite, Texas, Radiology Residency in Mt. Clemons, Michigan and his Fellowship at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas. After practicing Invasive Radiology some years in Texas, he came back home to Tulsa and practiced in Tulsa and the surrounding areas and eventually the surrounding states, while keeping his home in Tulsa. He was always accompanied by his faithful companion, Elvis the goofy dog. He was a well-respected doctor in his field of practice who saved many lives.
