About Me

Dr. Buckingham was born and raised in Portland, Maine. She received a B.A. in genetics, cell and developmental Biology from Dartmouth College and earned her medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.

Her first year of training in a Primary Care Medicine Internship was split between Waterbury and Yale-New Haven Hospitals. She completed her Neurology residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Buckingham then completed a fellowship in Movement Disorders at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City.

She and her family currently reside in Stamford and enjoy exploring the local food scene around Fairfield County.
