I am a new patient of Dr. Butler's. I was very pleased with both my visit's. Dr. Butler was thorough gathering information about my medical history, he has excellent communication skills and he made me feel like he was really listening...and not rushing me. He is doing a great job figuring out what the next step will be in my care and I just want to thank him and his staff for a job well done!

Dr Butler takes care of both of my boys. He does a superb job and the boys love him. He knows exactly how to work with them and is always available when I need him. I drive out of my way just to keep him as their doctor. I wouldn't trade him for anyone!! You can't go wrong with him!

Doctor Butler showed more ability to understand and diagnose my symptoms than any other doctor I have ever seen. He takes the time to work with you on solutions, instead of just pushing pills. Very kind and sensitive person.
