this doctor is AMAZINGLY BAD-- he NEVER shared VERY important information about his exam findings with me and it was not until I went to another doctor during an emergency visit that I found out how dire my situation was--I never asked Butner exactly what his findings were, figuring that he should tell me, as he is the "trusted professional" this man obviously has "issues"and I would tell any patient considering going to him to NOT trust him-- anyone can do MUCH better than to choose this doctor
