Our medical reviewers and writers

We’ve taken the time to recruit specialists with years of training to provide expert advice on the subjects they know best.

Representing a range of medical disciplines, they are committed to setting the highest standards for quality in their fields.

Standards worth standing by

Before medical information can appear on Buoy, it must undergo numerous rounds of reviews by our doctors, specialists, illustrators and award-winning editors. If any given piece of content doesn’t check out, it doesn’t go on Buoy.
