Worst doctor I have ever been to. She was rude, cold and uncaring. I felt the entire time she was trying to provoke me to argue with her. Her advice to me was to be selfish, inconsiderate cold. Exactly the way she was to me. I walked out of there feeling worse than I did when I went. Her name fits...more

Never. She is terrible and treated my son terribly. Screamed in his face and was rude to me. She should not be working with patients struggling with mental illness. Nobody should be subjected to her. She is unstable herself.

Dr. Butcher should not be allowed to have a practice consulting adolescents! For kids who may already be feeling down or bad about themselves, she just makes it worse. Choose another doctor for sure!

NO. DO NOT put your mental and physical health in her care. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had with a physician. EVER. Makes hasty diagnoses w/o adequate or thoughtful analysis. Her demeanor is very unprofessional, impatient and uncaring; she speaks without regard or respect for patient....more

She doesn’t listen to me. Told me she didn’t want to help me. Cussed me out. Not very professional. Made me feel like I was untreatable. Told me I was making up my feelings to get pills. Just not a genuine person who cares about your feelings or what you’re going through.
