Dr. Butler's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Butler " Holistic Medicine. Medically Supervised Weight Loss. Anti-Aging Medicine Born in Chicago's South Suburbs, a physician of 20 years, Dr. Butler has worked in ER/Urgent Care, multi-specialty practices, and even retired from the US Army as Major Butler after an 8-year stint of service. This vast experience gave her new understandings of medicine from a variety of perspectives. As a mother of two adults, a daughter, granddaughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and niece, she knows the healing power of relationships. It's this faith in relationships that pushed her into family medicine, and ultimately Holistic, Integrative, & Functional Medicine. "After working 15 years in medicine, I noticed: medicine has become unhealthy: doctors see the same patients for years, writing the same prescriptions over and over until the condition progresses, requiring more expensive treatments and specialists over time. I've heard it time and time again, 'This is my third course of antibiotics and I'm still not better', or' I've been on this med for years, now the price has doubled and I can't afford it anymore.'" The patients never really get better, the pharmacies are overwhelmed, and all of this comes at steep financial costs. "It makes no sense because most doctors are taught to FIND then TREAT the cause of illness, not just manage prescriptions. Yet in the world of 'more,' doctors typically have a quota of 3000 or more patients to care for each year. The result? Patients typically learn to accept, tolerate, and expect to be 1 of 26 patients on the doctor's daily schedule sometimes even double booked. That same physician's schedule will also have to absorb up to 18 telephone interruptions as well. As a result, the average patient visit is only 7 minutes, and there is no time to create a plan to actually HEAL the patient. Many patients accept this system. But patients who believe in holistic medicine want something more. They want sincere Quality. We get it, and we work within the patient-physician relationship to invest in the time and teamwork that it takes to help our patients gain control, and GET OFF THE MEDS. We created Wellness Integrative Medical & Spa for those patients. Those who value QUALITY over quantity. We believe in the healing properties of the doctor patient relationship.
