Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr Butler is top notch, you have a good one here. He was efficient with his time and mine, but not to the point of rushing anything.

We travel from south Renton to specifically see Dr. Butler. He used to be [...]'s MD in Renton, then moved to Swedish. Kyle has a very complex set of medical conditions [...] that require highly specialized naturopathic care. However, even though [...] is a dual-eligible Medicaid/Medicare patient, all naturopathic care is at our own expense, even labs, prescriptions or tests ordered by his naturopath. In the past, we had found it extremely difficult to find an MD who was willing to work cooperatively with our naturopath. Dr. Butler to the rescue! He is a Godsend for a family like ours. He respects the naturopathic care that [...] receives and adds the MD care that he needs seamlessly. After years of being caught between two conflicting worlds, Dr. Butler was a breath of fresh air in an environment that can often be stifling and frustrating [...]. If we could rate higher, Dr. Butler would receive a 10 for filling this desperately-needed gap with such grace and compassion. PS: We love the manner Dr. Butler speaks directly and normally to [...]---so many doctors talk down to him, raise their voices (as if shouting helps), or completely ignore their own patient. Dr. Butler communicates with a sincere smile that reaches deep into his eyes. [...]

Dr. Butler saved me on our family vacation. We left for vacation the day of my visit. My condition got worse. I emailed him and he sent a prescription to the pharmacy across the street from my hotel. Thank you Dr. Butler!

I have lost [...] pounds, My labs have improved; lower blood pressure, kidney function is normal, and glucose level is normal. I have done the work, but with the great help from Doctor Butler.

I feel as though Dr. Butler does a nice job balancing the demands on his time. He seems understandably busy, and while efficient in the care he provides, does convey a genuine interest in the patient and addresses all questions and concerns.

My routine exam with Dr. Butler was scheduled to last about 45 minutes but I was out in 33 minutes including time when the nurse interviewed me before the exam and the nurse provided ECG after the exam. I do visit other specialty doctors who spend more time discussing the details or performing the exam.
