Amazing and caring! His staff are polite and professional.

I absolutely love this Doctor!!!! I have an excess of multiple problems that he and others at this office have addressed and completely satisfies me in my pain management. Back, neck surgeries, two full knee replacements and possibly (hoping to avoid) future neck and back surgeries, and a shoulder replacement. the Drs have done phaniminal by me and my pain management by Dr Buttaci is in my opinion the best that can be done! I refuse to go to any one else. Deb K.

It took months to get an appointment. When I finally saw Dr. Buttaci, he was rushed due to some event that had caused him to run behind. He did not examine me other than to have me raise a foot; he said "if you really really want it you can have an x-ray", which I declined as he indicated no interest in having me do so. He prescribed PT with no diagnosis other than "back and hip pain". He mentioned injections but with no diagnosis, why would anyone want an injection? I wasted months.

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.

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.
