Laredo, TX |
Utilized a review system a couple of years ago when searching for a nephrologist in San Antonio and discovered Dr. Butt. I had my left kidney removed previously due to cancer and utilized Dr. Butt to help me combat high blood pressure. We've been able to bring my blood pressure under control. I normally don't have to wait long to see the doctor and he takes the time necessary to address my questions when we have our session together. I've been very pleased with Dr. Butt's treatment.

Dr. Butt began my treatment last year in hospital, and has continued to monitor my health since then. He is very smart, professional, but also very empathetic and wants to help his patients achieve their level of a healthy lifestyle. I appreciate his consideration and his willingness to listen to my questions and concerns.

Dr. Butt displays great bedside manner. I met him during a hospital stay and he took the time to explain what was happening to my kidneys and what his plan was to improve their function. Today my kidneys are functioning at 87%, which is a remarkable recovery from when I saw him in the hospital and for that I will forever be grateful to Dr. Butt!
