My husband and I both had visits recently with Dr. Butler and he took care of the issues for which we went in. He also diagnosed another issue for one of us after checking further and he took care of it, so we are so blessed we had appointments. I have used him for years and he has always taken great care of all of my needs.

Dr. Butler has been able to cure my chronic ear infections when no other ear doctor could. He's very efficient and really cares about his patients. I have had ear problems for 66 years. I've gone to so many ear doctors throughout my life. Dr. Butler is the very best. I've gone to him for seventeen years now.

After many, many sinus surgeries Doctor Butler found that behind my skull bone was a pocket of polyps and infection that caused my problems and pain for many years!!! He also has awesome bedside many which is very important to me and most people!! He's also the only doctor to actually appologize to me. Before my last surgery he thought maybe it was all in my head, I said well Doc it was!!!!!! Great surgeon!!!!

He walked in with an attitude, spent about five minutes on me, and that was it. He was abrasive and rude. I have a serious condition that needs surgery. Might be ok if all you have is a sinus infection. He's lazy and greedy. Not a moral person.
