I took a physical with the doctor over 2 months ago and have yet to receive my results. I have tried calling and leaving several messages and have yet to be called back. This is terrible.

Dr. Butt is very professional and straight forward. He told me I have allergies, who knew. He then went to explain how the ear, nose and throat are related to each other. I thought it was very thoughtful to explain thebody to me in a way I could understand. Thanks again

I’m consider a new patient for Dr.Butt . This was my first doctor visit . Which went great, I filled out my paper work .. they took my vitals and then I saw Dr.butt rightt after ... technically I didn’t haveto wait which was good for me. Went right in and came right out . My grandmother & mom referred me to him & so far he’s been nothing but amazing to us . I’m so happy he’s my primary physician !

Avoid! First, the staff is both slow *and* rude. They don't have basic processes in place for filling out paperwork. As frustrating as this is, and as much as they waste your time (with almost perfect apathy), I don't want toget into this because it's not my major concern. Dr. Butt was kind, with a good bedside manner. I asked for a lab test, and I got one after my appointment. The woman who took my blood was very pleasant. Since the test, I got the results and called the office for a quick chat with the doctor so he can explain them. Left a voicemail. Then I received a lab bill for a shocking amount of money. I called again, this time to also get a better understanding of the bill. Left a voicemail. In total over the past week, I've called their office *four* times (leaving voicemails) and sent *two* messages through the patient portal, with no response. I'm left with a large bill with no idea why it's that much, and no understanding of what my lab results mean. So yeah, please avoid this place.

Dr. Butt is very personable, and made me feel at ease in our general consultation. I would highly recommend him to anyone for his professionalism and efficiency of our appointment. There was some sort of mix-up with my appointment through ZocDoc,which I made for 12pm, as I was informed upon arrival that the doctor would not be in until at least 1pm. I left my number and was told I would get a call. I was unable to take the call when it arrived just before 1pm, but no message was left. My office is very close to 55 Greene, so I went to the front desk, and was told that I was supposed to be coming closer to 2:00pm. A nurse took my vitals when I arrived, and I waited about 45 minutes to be seen. However, the appointment progressed very quickly once I was in the room.

Unbelievably bad service. I went in to see Dr. Butt for a standard test. The office is reeeeally dirty. While I was there I saw a mouse crawling along the wall (not an exaggeration). I don't have insurance, so I paidin person. The office did not follow up with me, so I tried calling the office. No one picked up. All said and done, I'd say I tried calling some 30 times throughout the next week or so. Finally I got ahold of a rude receptionist, who refused to let me talk to Dr. Butt, and insisted that I needed to make another appointment... which I begrudgingly did. Then the day of my appointment, the office called an said the Dr. had to cancel. To his credit, his did call me back, after several frustrating calls to his office. To make matters worse, 30 days later, I received a bill for the appointment that got canceled. I do think that Dr. Butts hearts in the right place, but I'd steer clear if I were you. Lots of headaches for no reason.

Dr. Butt is always compassionate. He listens to patients concerns and I never feel rushed. He also works with you to help meet your specific health goals. I was nervous when I thought that my coverage was no longer accepted and he allayed my fears. He is amazing.

Dr. Butt was very good, but the office staff is terrible. Really impressively bad. This is how my visit went: I was instructed to sign in, and after waiting nearly an hour and a half I asked the front desk womanhow much longer my wait would be, or how behind they were running. She rather rudely told me they were not behind at all and I would be seen soon. The doctor came out, asked her why I had been waiting so long, and it turned out that she had had me sign in on the WRONG sheet, so they had been calling people in before me the entire time! She halfheartedly apologized, but my time had already been wasted. Dr. Butt was actually very nice and extremely thorough, that part of the visit was great. But I have been awaiting test results for like... 10 days, and when I called to check on them I was first disconnected, then placed on a very long hold, and then the woman who finally answered kept interrupting me, and even referred to me as "sweetie" at one point during the call?!? So rude/unprofessional. And I still don't have my results!!!

Horrible front desk staff. Rude, impolite, and did not seem to realize they work in a doctors office because after almost 2 hours of waiting after my appointment time said they had "no idea" how long appointments lasted or when Iwould be seen. Dr. Butt was courteous and professional unfortunately I was in the office for over 2 hours for a small procedure that took only 10 minutes.

Dr. Butt and his assistant were both extremely thorough and polite. He was very knowledgeable and he took the time to explain his diagnosis and the prescribed course of treatment completely. He took the time to get to know me, whichlater paid off in his ability to recommend treatment specifically tailored to my needs. I'll definitely go back.
