What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Butler, MD

His arrogance and sheer uncaring for his patience is appalling. Dr. Butler dismissed anything that you as a patient tell him. He does not believe that you are in pain when you tell him and will call you crazy even though your test results show otherwise. Due to other circumstances I will be reporting him to medical board.

High level of arrogance. Immediately put me on hard core meds that only made things worse. Cancelled on my second appointment a day before - after waiting 6 months, and booked me out another 6 months. His staff mis-diagnosed a partially collapsed lung. He had a receptionist call me and tell me about a CT Scan result - and that she had to Google the results and forgot but would google it again for me. Unbelievable.

Dr. Butler does not listen to his patient, does not take any interest in the pain you are experiencing and most of all will prescribe medicine that makes you worse!!! I had to visits to the emergency hospital because I was allergic the the medication Dr. Butler prescribed. Still he wanted me to try it again! Worst doctor in Spokane. Do yourself a favor, stay home and take aspirin.

Dr. Butler has been my Dr. since 1998. I would have no other. He has always been such a great doctor. He has always listened to me, believed me and has always done his best to make my life as pain free and keep me moving as possible. I appreciate him so much.
