Specialties

Dr. Kenneth Butler has the following 2 specialties

  • Child Neurology

    Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
    Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great doctor

Very patient with my grandson. Very thorough. His diagnosis of my grandson's brain tumor was critical in his getting his operation at Nicklaus Children's Hospital very quickly. Very polite and answered all our questions. Very good with my grandson. I would highly recommend him and my grandson continues to see him.

Do not believe on this reviews Dr. Butler is a great doctor, he does not make up for a disease. He tells the parents the truth and what the child needs. He is seeing my daughter in the course of 3 years now. He has always been both pleasant and professional to both of us.

Caring, Knowledge & Experience

I had to write a review for Dr. Butler after seeing the negativity here. He has been caring for my son since an illness as an infant, or about 7 years. He is kind. He is patient. He listens. He is compassionate. He cares. And he is knowledgeable. Sometimes he can seem somewhat abrupt - like in answering a question - but if you let him know you don't understand, he will go back and slow down / re-explain. There are some appointments where he is notably busy, and we have to wait quite a long time. But that is usually because he did not rush a patient out the door earlier who needed more attention than normal. Dr. Butler is a good doctor. As a parent, however, you have to ask questions to let him know if something doesn't make sense. He wont' know unless you tell him.
