What People Say About Dr. Michael Butcher, MD

In 2001 I had a shoulder injury at work, requiring surgery and continuous therapy to regain the use of my right arm. I was treated with respect, and the surgery was done well. I commend Dr. Butcher for his knowledge of how he repaired my AC joint, as well as eliminating the large bone spur in my shoulder and arm joint. I found Dr. Butcher to be helpful, and have no complaints. Thanks to his expertise, I am able to use my right arm which I was not able before surgery.

The doctor took one X-ray and determined my daughters finger fracture is healed. He referred her to physical therapy, but we couldn't attend the therapy consultation because it is conflict with school schedules. He over charged us $998 with Level 5 exam, OPD Pro 1Hr, and 76000 Fluoroscope Exam. We didn't have and need those exams, and it is certainly overcharged.
