      One of the rudest people I have ever met, and I am a military veteran who has traveled the world. This man's pockets are obviously lined by pharmaceutical companies because when I didn't want a quick fix pill,he was done. Do NOT waste the time or money with this doctor!

      Today I had a follow-up visit with Dr. Butler.He was a condescending and acted like Dr God. I was expecting to hear about tests results. He said it looked normal. Very rude. Interrupted me when asking questions. A dozen blood test have been run and I asked him what he had ruled out he said You would need a medical degree to understand the results. Excuse me! Have we ruled out MS? Anything specific? How rude and condescending. I will not be going back.Shameful. I'm transferring to UT

      I've been a Pt of Dr. Butlers for over 5 yrs. The wait time is ridiculous and good luck getting his nurse Tammy to call you back in a timely fashion. Usually takes her roughly about a wk. Then there is something messed up. He has very poor hygiene, long fingernails etc. Very rude to Pts and will not even look them in the face will talking to them and likes to belittle them as much as possible. Wish I could find another Neurologist but bc of insurance can't. Likes to push pills done your throat!

      I've been a patient of Dr. Darel Butler since Oct. 2015. HIS ARRAGANCE, CONDESENDING, YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ATTITUDE, IS APAULLING! I could Not ask a Q or say anything w/o a Put-Down comment from him First. DOES NOT take time to explain anything! Too busy talking over me & cutting me off. He questioned how I knew this or that, etc.My PCP/other drs ARE NOT stupid & Neither am I! Still don't know about my results! Can't say more here, due to lack of space in this box, but WILL get the word out!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
