What People Say About Dr. Francis Butler, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Butler has been my psychiatrist for many years. I like him because of his level of dedication to his patients. I have seen him at Windmoor and at his office. He puts in a lot of time at Windmoor, looking after a multitude of patients. Potential patients should know that there are sometimes emergencies at the hospital that may occasionally result in his arriving somewhat late at his office. Also be aware that Dr. Butler is extremely intelligent and truly capable of multi-tasking.

I have been a patient of Dr. Butler for many years. He is a kind and compassionate person. He spends the time needed with me rather than rushing me out of his office like so many psychiatrists do. We work well together and I am thankful for his assistance in getting/keeping myself well.

My experience with Dr Butler is frustrating at best. He refuses to talk to family members of at risk elderly patients who require healthcare surrogate and POA oversite. My family member has not gotten any better under his care. He is not attentive to patient or family dynamic needs to adequately care for this vulnerable patient population. The inpatient facility he uses called Windmoor is a poorly administered facility with poor quality of patient care.

This office milks their star doctor's stellar reviews when in fact he is only present three days a weeks to sign paperwork. You'll actually be seen by a nurse practitioner. No thanks
