Dr. Butani listened to my concerns, explained things clearly and never made things feel rushed - both in the office and before/ after a procedure. I really appreciate his approachable style and would definitely recommend him to others!

Dr. Butani has been a five star physician from my perspective. He and his nursing staff have helped me tremendously, offering helpful and significant information, calling to update me on exam results, even before they are posted on their website! I appreciate their work immensely!

Had 2 office visits and waited for Dr. Butani each time for 30 mins and 45 mins respectively even when I had the first appointment of the day. Curiously, in my most recent I found Dr. Butani took an appointment before me. The staff is unhelpful in giving heads up regarding expected wait times and it seems like this is the order of general business here. Face time with Dr. Butani itself was quite short as compared to the waits. He seemed to be in hurry to complete his diagnosis

Dr. Butani took care to explain diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of my medical condition thoroughly and made sure I understood all the information he was giving me. Dr. Butani listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed and left the appointment feeling I was getting the best care possible.

I am a new patient at Dr. Butani?s office and so far my experience has been great. The staff is very pleasant, friendly and respectful of my time, during my first appointment they made sure to inform me Dr. Butani was running behind. I hate sitting at the doctors wondering what it taking so long and appreciated the heads-up. The consultation went smoothly, the doctor was very thorough explain my diagnosis and my treatment options, he also gave me plenty of materials to read regarding my health.

Dr. Butani and his nurse Karina were both very friendly and made me feel comfortable during my appt. Dr. Butani and His nurse Karina replied to me through the patient portal in a timely manner giving me great feedback, options, and information on my health concern. They are always willing to answer questions, and helping me develop a plan to get my health back on track.

Waited for an hour for him to show up. Recommended unnecessary procedures, (I did not have the symptoms he listed) He DID NOT enter the room in order to explain me the diagnosis after examine, how it should be treated, how serious it is etc. The nurse gave me some PRINT OUTS from wikipedia and said:just read this. Prescribed drug which after my Premera Ins cost around $500.00 (my pharmacy recommended much cheaper alternative, even Vaseline would work) DISSAPOINTED! Do not recommend!
