Dr. Buist started his veterinary career with Brick Town Veterinary Hospital in 1984, after completing his veterinary training at the University of Pennsylvania. His special interests include surgery, orthopedic surgery, reproduction, and pediatrics.
He has been married to his wife, Mary Beth, since 1978. She recently retired from teaching at the high school in Lacey Township. Together they have three children: Rebecca, a high school teacher; David, a chemist; and Ryan, who is currently attending Rutgers in New Brunswick. Their family pets over the years have included various dogs, canaries, hamsters, rabbits, and, for brief periods of time, the odd snake or turtle.
When not working at Brick Town Veterinary Hospital, other passions in Dr Buist's life include fishing, tying fishing flies, wood carving, reading, cooking with his wife, gardening, and the beach. He hopes to be able to fish with his grand kids someday.
