I saw Dr. Butrynski when I was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma at Dana Farber.After meeting him I felt hopeful and safe He sent me to a surgeon within the hour and followed my progress.That was my only visit because he was relocating. Dr. Butrynski actually called me right before he moved. He cares and he's hopeful and that's why I've been looking for him.My new Oncologist is very smart but people need hope too otherwise why bother. I think if I had Dr. Butrynski my journey would be better.

I was very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Butrynski for my cancer treatment. He took so much time with me, showing compassion and a real sincerity in his care for me. I am more than happy to give 5 stars and would highly recommend him to anybody looking for an excellent oncologist to achieve the best of care.

We only had two appointments with Dr. Butrynski before my father was referred to hospice and passed away just 3 weeks after diagnosis, but Dr. B treated him as if he'd been caring for him for years. He even phoned me the day after his passing to express his condolences and make sure we were okay and that any questions/concerns were addressed.
