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.

My entire family has seen him. I have trusted his opinion and expertise for years. Would never consider another ENT. He genuinely listens and cares for his patients.
