What People Say About Dr. Ian Butler, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
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.
