Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My experience with Dr. Butler was disappointing. He didn’t seem to listen to me and seemed to belittle my situation. Two days after my appointment with him I ended up going to another orthopedic for a second opinion and found satisfaction diagnosis and treatment in that visit.

On a personal level he is one of the best Drs. I've ever used. But personality doesn't fix you when you're broken. I owe 100% of my recovery to Dr Butler. I was injured pretty badly. By chance I got him as my Dr and I dread thinking how I would be today if I got a a Dr with lesser skill than him.

Horrible. He did not take his time at all and did not seem very concerned. I was in there for all of 10-15 minutes, showing how little to no effort he put in. I would not recommend going to him.

I waited weeks for my appointment. It was confirmed 48 hours prior. I arrived early and was informed by a rude woman that "Dr Butler is not here."My appointment slip confirmed I was correct on the date and time. The woman then told me I had received a cancellation call. I most certainly did not. The woman offered no apology or help of any kind. She expected me to leave without even offering to reschedule my appointment. I never saw a doctor, but waited 20 minutes for the office manager.

Misdiagnosed my son who was injured playing hockey. Discharged him to drive an hour and a half back to school. Had to go to another ER next morning. Totally missed the diagnosis and what he told us was broken... wasn’t . My son kept telling staff that wasn’t were it hurt. Also the accurate diagnosis had some frightening complications associated with it. Furious and frustrated.

He did unnecessary surgery and left me in very bad shape. I wish I could have seen someone else.

For Knee pain. He advised XRay and although there was nothing wrong, I preferred him to proabably advice me as to what was needed to alleviate the pain.I can't say he is good or bad or best or worst from the experience I had who is paying for the visit.
