Dr. Butler's staff was most helpful and accommodating in arranging a post- surgical visit. His PA is a very caring individual who made sure everything regarding medications, restrictions and rehab was very clear to us. Dr. Butler has a very likeable and pleasant bedside manner. His skills as a surgeon appear obvious in the product of his work, me!
