What do patients have to say about you?

Dr. Butler has exceptional diagnostic instincts, is teamed with well qualified associates, has a very personable manner, and is compassionate towards his patients. He is our trusted physician.

Dr. Butler is a very caring and compassionate physician. His skills and knowledge of a patient’s illness and or care that need his attention in my opinion is second to none. Dr. Butler is not only attentive but has a wonderful bedside manner. There has never been an occasion for myself or my husband that Dr. Butler hasn't been able to treat or give us the information that was needed for our health care or surrounding needs. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Butler as our primary care physician. Dr. Butler’s office is run with efficiency and the staff is always thorough and attentive to your needs.
