I was referred by my PCP to Dr. Butera. My PCP recommended an EEG as I was being monitored by my previous PCP in Texas. It had been about 10 years since I had seen a neurologist. Front Desk: Professional, Polite and Accommodating Appointments: Very efficient Wait Times: Less than 10 minutes Dr Butera: Knowledgeable, competent, spent time explaining test results, spent quite a bit of time with me answering my questions and I never felt rushed. He has a great demeanor. I could not ask for more fr

I would definitely recommend Dr. Butera to family and friends. Dr. Butera took the time to examine me and do tests. He was not in a hurry and he did not push drugs. I am very careful about what I take due to side effects and also I feel less is fine. Dr. Butera has a wonderful friendly staff. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

I was a new patient today. I waited about 15 minutes to be seen but Dr Butera took an awful long time listening to me and examining me. He was very nice, did not make me feel like I was 'less than'. He did not talk down to me, he explained everything clearly, I never felt rushed or uncomfortable. Secretary Claudette was also very nice.

Holistic practitioner who treats the whole human being!! Excellent doctor who cares for the patient and and makes sure that all questions are answered and the patient understands the diagnosis and the intended follow up treatments. Truly the way doctor should treat every patient as if they were part of his own family.

I have seen him two times and both times he has done his research on my disorder. He was willing to take the time to listen and make a solid plan for the weeks it takes to come off a medication. In almost done on the plan and have had no problems.

I do not trust Dr. Butera. I was referred by my PCP who suspected I had Multiple Sclerosis. Dr Butera did an MRI, and a brief, half hearted physical exam. He told me I don't have MS, and despite my being a fit Gymnastics coach, he offered the suggestion that my severe fatigue (and myriad of other symptoms) was simply due to having 6 children. He also asked "have you seen a psychiatrist" when he couldn't determine the cause of my issues. I left in tears. After suffering 2 more years, and a

I trust Dr Butera knowledge in the field of Neurology. After reviewing my EMG he took the time to explain the results. My previous Neurologist quite simply did have the experience and knowledge that Dr Butera has.

Very good first visit with Dr. Butera. Very thorough and intelligent and makes you feel comfortable. One of the few docs to listen to me and take the time to speak with me to find a solution with my problems. One of the few docs ive been to that seems genuinely concerned with patients. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a solid neurologist.

Dr. Butera advised me to get a second opinion. After finding another neurologist, I called Dr. Butera's office to request that my records be forwarded. I was told that the records would be sent the following day. The following afternoon I decided that it would be prudent to follow up to be sure the records had been sent. I was told that there was no indication that I had requested the records be forwarded. If I hadn't followed up, I would not have known that the records were not sent.
