I met with the PA Ulia and Dr Baxter also came in and talked to me. They both provided me with exceptional care.

I had a very good overall experience during this visit with everyone that I encountered.

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!

Dr. performed fistula surgery and follow up visits with the highest level of professionalism and skill. He and his staff are well worth the trip from Franklin to Erie.
