Dr. Butman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Butman "Born and educated in Montreal followed by cardiovascular training in California, at the time a seat of the latest in cutting edge medicine, I was later recruited to the University of Arizona in Tucson to develop a higher level of interventional cardiology. While there I also created a very successful interventional training program, as well as a productive clinical research program. In 2006, solely to continue my adventures in medicine, I moved to Northern Arizona. I wanted to broaden my experience in healthcare outside the University setting and have enjoyed and continued to learned a great deal from colleagues and my many many patients. My clinical experience has been broadened during my tenures as Chief of Medicine, Chief of Staff, further enhanced by my now past experience on the Board of Verde Valley Medical Center. I have been part of Northern Arizona Healthcare for over 10 years and am currently the Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Verde Valley Medical Center. I like to travel, play golf, spend time with friends and my wife, Teresa, and visit my children and grandchildren on either coast."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Butman "Everything I prescribe or test for is in your best interest and it is always up to YOU to decide what you are most comfortable doing with the information I can provide.

My academic and scientific background have been the foundation of the care I provide and have provided for over 30 years.  It is not always about what works best in mice or in a small experiment, but what works in the real world and has been tested and proven to be safe and effective for patients with heart disease.

Worst case scenario....You listen to what I have to say based on the latest scientific evidence and you decide not to go forward with my advice, but at least you now know more than you did before.

Best case scenario....What I makes sense to you and we go forward together."

On Jan. 1st 2015 I had a heart attack and the paramedics took me to the Heart & Vascular Center in Cottonwood, Arizona. At this time Dr. Butman put a stint (2?) in me. By his expertise and great sense of humor, I actually enjoyed the event. I know that that's hard to believe, but he has a way of...more

We just became new patients of Dr. Butman and are very impressed. He is skilled, knowledgeable, interested in us and our needs. We wanted a cardiologist who is willing to listen to our concerns. Dr. Butman does. And there’s an added bonus. He has warmth, kindness and a sense of humor.

I'm new to Dr Butman having been referred to him by my now retired cardiologist. However, he impresses me as a very knowledgeable and caring Dr. His 'bedside manner' is jovial but straight forward and frank about what's going on, setting me at ease when we're discussing my heart health.

Heart disease runs in my husband's family, and Dr. Butman has taken great care of my husband, who has had 3 heart attacks. His caring manner puts his patients at ease, as my husband does not really like doctors, but, he can joke with Dr. Butman.
