Tim Buffey, DO, Chair of Family Medicine comes to ARCOM after 9 years as Program Director Family Medicine in Normal, Illinois.  Dr. Buffey was an undergraduate in a private church based school, Olivet Nazarene University, in central Illinois.  Olivet is best known as the training camp for the Chicago Bears.  Dr. Buffey attended Osteopathic Medicine at Midwest University/CCOM, where he graduated in 1994.  His Residency was in FM in west Michigan along the lake.  His love for full spectrum practice with obstetrics continued after residency, but his passion for medical education resulted in his moving back to Illinois to be Program Director.  The son of a Nazarene Minister, Dr. Buffey enjoys meeting new people and seeing new places.  He has lived all over the U.S. and Canada, and is glad to come to the beautiful state of Arkansas to continue his passion for education.  He is married to Kate, who is also a FM physician, and together they have five children.
