i was also a patient of Tom Butler for 24 years before he retired. Luckily, he passed me on to John Feigert or i would still be fuming mad at him for leaving!! The best oncologist, a great person, he kept me alive for all those years. Cannot ever say enough good things about him. Smart , compassionate, knows his stuff. And NOT afraid to say i DOnt KNOW!!! A rare thing in medicine. He handed my care off to his ever so competent partner, so l feel like a lucky woman!
