Dr James Butera is the most caring doctor I have seen in many years. . As for myself I have switched drs so that I.could be a patient of his to help me with my hypogammaglobulin anemia. He has treated me with respect and kindness and has explained the process of helping me deal with my condition. He is very informative, extremely intelligent and the nicest man you would want to be on your side for any illness. I cannot express how greatful I am to him. He's the best among his peers in my opinion
