Charles Buttachi was one of the rudist, degrading and humiliating doctors I have had, later got additional imaging for further surgical injuries beyond what was already found, which he began to diminish and deny rather than offer medical assistance. He told me no one is in that much pain while just walking..sitting - excruciating. He refused me further tests for hip labrum tears found. I was in that much pain ChuckButt. and much more. Indifferent,cruel, discrimontory. Others agree below.
in Albany, NY |
Waited for ages, saw him for maybe 5 minutes total. Didn't even review my information, not even my medications. I was asked for info 3x (at check in, forms, then asked again by nurse) and he didn't bother to look at any of it or at referral. It was like being on a conveyor belt: he is interested in checking off appt, barely even pays attention to or examines patient. Would not recommend if you are in need of medical treatment.
XXXX, NY |
Despite not giving me any kind of exam or real evaluation, he wrote up findings (diagnoses, prognosis, etc)... because he used information from my carrier's IME report. He's supposed to be my doctor, not the carrier's doctor. If I could describe him in a word, it'd be indifferent. Dr. Buttaci seemed completely indifferent to treating me or that I am in so much pain. That's just two of my reasons, I have a couple more too.
