I would recommend Dr. Butler to anyone. Probably, though, he is pretty popular with his patients, so there may not be any openings any more. if so, too bad1

I wish he would look over my record more carefully before asking questions. He's been off-base on several occasions. Otherwise, he is quite friendly!

Dr. Butler was a new doctor for me but he made an excellent impression. I particularly appreciated him calling in an attending doctor and the clinic pharmacist to help me get best use of my medications. And the medications were waiting for me when I arrived at my pharmacy.

I've always admired Dr. Butler's customer service and communication style. I've never left feeling like I was rushed out, or I didn't get all my answers to questions. It would a wonderful world if all doctors could mimic his style! Also, I've always had a good experience with the staff, and nursing assistants.

I don't think I have been to another doctor who provides more attentiveness for an annual physical. I do think he was very thorough and engaged into what I was telling him. He listens, not just talks, and that is good for patients to be able to be heard--sometimes, that is all they want--to be heard.

Dr. Butler is fantastic. We drive all the way from south Renton to West Seattle to bring my son [...] to him specifically. I'd see Dr Butler for myself if I didn't have [...] through work.

I have only visited Dr. ~ 4 times & have been impressed each time - so much so that at the end of the visit I told him directly that I very much appreciated how he did his job! Also the next day I commented to a nurse friend of mine how much I liked Dr. Butler & she took down because her husband [...] is looking for a Doc.
