Terrible IME

I was sent here by my insurance company for an IME. It was so horribly done, the insurance company is actually paying for me to go somewhere else. No effort, next to no actual examination. Quick, easy money between regular patients. Try to convince your insurance company to have you scheduled elsewhere. A complete waste of time.

Excellent Spine surgeon!

After 2.5-3 years of being in major pain, and multiple visits to numerous Doctors and physical therapy offices in met Dr. Butler. He completely understood just how much pain I was in.. the words that I heard were, "You have to be in alot of pain" and "I can fix you". Hearing those words made me pretty much cry. I was ready!! The procedure was a L4, L5 fusion (seems to be typical) and we schedule the surgery. Amazing! The morning of my surgery was early and by the end of night I was standing up just to see what my results were going to be. I was so surprised, even though I was sore, I wasn't in pain!! I was determined to heal fast!! The next morning I was up walking in the hall and in order to go home I had to pass the tests. I went up a flight of stairs and down again!! Amazing!! I was able to be released from the hospital the day after surgery which they said they had never seen someone leave that early before. I was bound and determined. It's been 1.5 years now and I still feel amazing! Thank you Dr. Butler for being one of my miracle doctors and giving me my life back!!

Outstanding Surgeon and human being

I went to see Dr. Butler to get a second opinion. I had been in extreme pain from 2 herniated disks in my neck. After talking extensively with him I knew he was the doctor for me. He performed a 2 level ACDF on me which gave me back 100% use of my arm and relieved my pain. I had complete faith in him and my family and I thank him from the bottom of our hearts for helping me. While I hope I don't have more spine problems, if I do, he is the ONLY doctor I would trust. His staff is also top notch. Thank you Dr. Butler and staff for taking such good care of me!!

Get a second opinion

I saw Dr. Butler recently. He reviewed my MRI and told me that I needed surgery on my neck.........there were no If's, And's, Or But's about it. I had limited options, no physical therapy would be helpful etc. Well I went for a 2nd opinion, and apparently I DO have options, and therapy is ONE of them. Surgery should always be the last resort. He and his assistant "Michael" were very quick to say SURGERY only......and it scared me half to death. Why not think about how scared your patients are. I'm sure Dr. Butler is a great doctor, but why is it that someone else (very reputable) I might add, say that my condition did not warrant surgery at this time and therapy could be helpful in getting my herniated discs, bulging discs, & spine thinning healthy again with Meds, treatment, etc. I know what I have is serious..........but COME ON NOW. Please get down to the level of your patient, explain things in a nicer way and don't let them leave scared out of their wits. It' not nice.

Doctor's Response

Laurie - we are glad that you were able to find comfort in a 2nd opinion. When you came to us in our office, you presented with symptoms, we reviewed your image studies and we performed a physical exam. Based on our findings we rendered an opinion that we felt was best suited for you at the time of your visit. If you review the statement that was written at the bottom of your clinical summary you will note: "The patient has two disc herniations at the C4-5 and C5-6 levels with cord compression.  She has some findings of myelopathy which are of concern.  She does not require surgery categorically but is at some risk given the Hoffmann's sign and ankle clonus.  She has limited options beyond observation and light stretching.  She will observe for any worsening of the neurologic complaints." We stated that you DO NOT require surgery, however we stressed that you take it easy and stick with LIGHT stretching at this time. Our concern was your cord compression, Hoffmann's sign and ankle clonus. Our goal was to observe for worsening of your symptoms. When you visit any physician, you will be rendered an opinion. Those opinions will vary from physician to physician at times. In conclusion, although our opinion may have differed from your second opinion, we are glad we could clear up any confusion by reminding you of our summary on your clinical summary, and we wish you all the best moving forward.
