Dr. Buie is a pediatric Gastroenterologist at the Lurie Center for Autism, a multidisciplinary program that treats children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
Dr. Buie’s medical practice is in pediatric gastroenterology. Since 1990, he has worked in clinical medicine primarily, but his practice has evolved to include teaching and clinical research as well. From 1990 to 1998, he practiced at Pediatric Gastroenterology Associates. In 1998, he joined MGH and Harvard Medical School. A unique aspect of his practice is that a large percent of children he treats have developmental disorders, primarily autism. He has practiced the Lurie Center for the past 10 years as one of few gastroenterologists situated in a developmental clinic in the country. He has cared for children from over 40 states in the U.S. and from all over the world. In 2009 Dr. Buie was honored by the Autism Society of America as Professional of the Year for his outstanding work.
As Dr. Buie’s clinical experience grew, he has enjoyed the opportunity to become an educator as well. He has created a tangible educational program and teaching curricula presented nationally and internationally. His teaching series includes guidelines regarding behaviors of children with autism that may represent pain or other underlying medical issues and has been presented to parents; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; and a wide range of specialists from the medical community. The usefulness and popularity of Dr. Buie’s lectures is shown by the repeated requests to speak to parents (Autism Society of America and Defeat Autism Now), educators (Learning and the Brain) and physicians (pediatric and physician conferences at universities and medical centers throughout the United States).
