Dr. Butler performed a sagittal band reconstruction on my left hand index finger. I'm a guitar player & thought i'd never play again. Well, it's be about a year and I'm playing again, improving my technique, reinventing my style and my overall approach to the instrument. The injury was horrible but it provided me with the experience of being operated on by a maestro!

Arrived on time but after 45 mins in crowded waiting room (no magazines to speak of, no wifi); told "next to just be put in room", then told "2 people in rooms ahead", no clear time for being seen after that; asked why not informed in advance or when checking in that MD running hours behind; no answer! As a physician myself, I know that any office that is run so poorly with little consideration of patients does not deliver adequate medical care. Trust this MD: find another physician!!

I have known Dr. Butler over 12 years as he has done so many things regarding my shoulders and hands. I recently needed a total shoulder replacement. Dr. Butler was so patient with me as he tried several other options and never pushed surgery. It was always my choice. Thank goodness he made the recommendation to move forward as the pain overwhelmed me, to find out during surgery I had no shoulder left. Dr. Butler is very caring and spends quality time explaining things. Thanks Dr.Butler so much
