We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Makes snaps judgments about parents and care or cause of medical issues of child. Writes damaging medical reports that will follow child through their lifetime that will have a negative impact of future care. Makes diagnoses without formal testing such as brain scans and MRIs and blood tests.

My Child has been a patient of Dr. Butler since 2007. We've been pleased with his level of service until recently. As a result of his expedient manner, two prescription mistakes were identified and he hastily concluded the consultation without asking if we had matters to discuss. He literally walked out the door leaving us in a quandary. Needless to say, the consult merited little value and we will no longer be seeking the advice of Butler due to his apparent confusion and poor approach.
