D. Butman has been treating my wife and I for the past four years. Prior to Dr. Butman I had been treated by two other Cardiologists when I was residing in California. I now feel much better about my care and health than I ever have. Dr. Butman is a kind, considerate, and intelligent doctor. We love his bed side manor which makes it easy for us to talk to him. Some folks might not like his sense of humor and jovial personality but we love him for it.

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 relaxing you. Of course, at the time, I didn't quite realize the severity of my situation. But it seems that the paramedics, hospital staff and Dr. Butman all saved my life that night. Very impressive.

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.

Dr. Butman saved my life and I am very grateful to him. He was able to diagnose and get the right medication in the hospital to keep me alive long enough to get me to surgery. He called up to Flagstaff to get a specialist opinion when I was in crisis and nothing was working. This is a great doctor that you want on your side when you need surgery.

I've been seeing Dr. Butman ever since he put five stents in my heart after I collapsed from a heart attack in 2012. The results were excellent, and I appreciate his positive and upbeat attitude. I've had no trouble making follow-up appointments, and he even returns calls. And it doesn't hurt that he's affiliated with a group of other outstanding cardiologists.

I know Dr. Butman as THE cardiologist who attended my wife through a mitral valve repair and later full valve replacement. Though Dr. Butman was not the surgeon in either procedure, he was instrumental in securing the best available talent to assure success of both events. She also suffered from ovarian cancer, and he supported her oncology treatment. After her demise, he sought me out and supported me through my grief. I now see him as my cardiologist. He is my "go to" Dr. - RECOMMENDED!

I was totally dissatisfied with him. Everything was a joke to him and I did find him funny at all. He spent maybe 3 min. with me. He did not read my chart as to see why my private care provider referred me. I also had prior testing done and he did not even look at it. I had to ask him what his impression was of the results. He glanced at the results and said it was fine, then he ordered another diagnostic test and left. I learned nothing from this appmt. It was a total waste of time and money

He saved my life. Another facility in Sedona was discharging me for anxiety. Dr Butman had me transported by ambulance to VVMC. Cardio catheter reveals a 95percent blockage in my LAD, (widow maker). I'm forever grateful.

I needed some work done to verify my ability to receive a kidney transplant. Dr. Butman did the work and treated me in a way that my percentage of kidney function remained at the same level as I had before the procedure. I am extremely pleased with the result of the procedure and would trust Dr. Butman to work with me anytime.
