At visits, he seemed scatter brained. I would have to tell the nurses what we had just discussed I heard he was a great surgeon, so overlooked thinking operation is what matters. I felt he was dishonest, and played games. I was told that hardware was never removed unless there was a problem but then a year-and-a-half later he told me we always remove it after a year-and-a-half. He actually had operation appointment in books that I knew nothing about.
i would recommend Dr Buttermann to family and friends. I started seeing him after my daughter had to have a fusion of three vertebrate in her back. Her surgery was a major success. I just had my third fusion in my back. He was detailed in alternative treatments to insure that fusion was a last resort.
I have had several spinal fusion surgeries over the years with Dr.Buttermann , all as planned and all successful. I find him to be very thorough and I always leave with a plan and options in mind and when I leave, he's already implementing the next steps (MRI,PT, etc). He has always answered all of our (my wife's too) questions and has shown us the xrays and MRI's and pointed out how things are and how things should be. I believe he is at the top with his expertise and would certainly recommend.
I feel that Dr. Buttermann is highly skilled and knowledgeable in his field of expertise. I had back surgery one year ago, that I had put off for ten years. I am now 95%-100% pain free.. If you are looking for someone with a warm and fuzzy bedside manner, you better move on, Dr. Buttermann is probably not your guy. He is precise, matter-of-fact and let's get down to business. However, if you are looking for someone who cares whether or not your surgery is successful, give him a try.
been very professional
Personable truthfull calm. I have sent two good friends to Dr. Buttermann both of them had surgery on their back, as I did, with excellent results.
I have had to have several surgeries because of degenerating disks and pinched nerves. He has done them all and they have all been successful! My pain is gone! He is very competent. I highly recommend Dr. Buttermann and his staff.
I saw Dr. Janiga for SI injections. He was kind, professional, and put me at ease about the procedure by explaining the process and answering all questions. I trust and recommend him. Most of the nurses that day were nice, the exception was the lady injecting me with the local anesthesia. Her bedside manner needs a refresher course.
My experience with Dr. Butterman was good. I like him personlly and as a Doctor. He explained medical in detail. I was comfortable with treatment and surgery.
I was very pleased with how Dr Janiga took the time to listen to me about my thoughts on how he could help me, and I appreciated his intellectual feedback and recommendations for my treatment. I would definitely refer my family and friends to see him.
