Stay far away from this doctor. Will look at you as nothing more than money. Will force you to go to his physical therapy and MRI place. Will spend a whole 2 minutes with you a she writes put prescriptions for painkillers, physical therapy, and a MRI all to his place so he can profit form you.

I've been going to Dr. Butani for over a year now and have never been to a better doctor for my back pain. He's managed to treat my pain without any narcotic medication (the practice is interventional) and he truly cares about the well being of his patients. I'm bringing my son in to see him for a knee injury he suffered playing basketball.
