This was my first time using Dr Butterman. I used his service based on ratings from my health insurance. My reason for not recommending him partially for his service, but due to his staff which you will NEED to interact with if you go to this doctor. I went in for a routine yearly check and some lab work was ordered. We never discussed what the lab work was going to be. For that I don't think it was correct from him - he should have gone over the details. Then I received a bill from my insurance saying that they requested 14 lab exams with outrageous prices and were mostly not covered. I am a healthy 27 year old going for a routine exam and I am not sure of why these were all ordered. No other doctor had done this before. I tried calling the office to get my medical records which would show what was ordered and why. Someone named Monica started transferring me saying I needed to talk to the lab before I was even done asking my question. I was confused since I was not sure of why they would transfer me to a lab so I could get my records from the doctor (or why would the lab have my medicine records for that matter?). I called back and they didn't pick up. When they finally did pick up, she doesn't want to speak to me once again, is calling me things like sweet heart and all of those words that you try to say when you want to diminish someone without being explicit. After much back and forth she explains that by lab she meant their own nurse. There is no way I would know that beforehand, and there is no reason why she couldn't have said I needed to speak to the nurse. When I explained to her that except for them, nobody else would say that la is their own nurse, she once again transferred me with no notice. I tried to call and give feedback to the front desk, and the woman Ashley said that this is how they treat their customers. And apparently I should have known that lab means their own nurse. I will be resolving this issue and I will never be coming back.

The office needs to be organized a little bit better. For example, when I had to leave a urine sample there was several cups on the sink that other patients left still sitting there. This is not good one bit. Plus patients are put in the examination room to then go to the doctors office then back to exam room to be examined. This is sooo u organized. Dr. Buterman treats he's patient very well but as far as the office organization it is horrible. I would put it lasts this office as far as mistakes made because lack of organization.

Highly disorganized office, I would not recommend to anyone. I had to wait nearly two hours to be seen, and the actual time spent with the doctor was so rushed, probably about 3 minutes total. Terrible experience.

The office staff was demeaning. Dr Buterman was condescending and abrasive. He dismissed my concerns over the way I've been feeling without barely waiting for the words to leave my mouth. He offered absolutely zero medical advice and did not engage in any sort of discussion when I told him how I'd felt. He merely looked at me and told me I was fine. His office was also a complete pigsty and I would never go back.

I was very nervous about finding a new doctor after recently moving to the area, but Dr. Buterman is fantastic! He has great bedside manner, and took the time to make sure to answer any and all questions I had. He's gentle and thorough. He definitely put my mind at ease. Be prepared, though, even if you fill out the paperwork online, there's still a ton you need to fill out when you get there if you're a new patient.

This was my first visit with Dr. Buterman and I was so happy with the service he provided. He not only spoke with me and addressed my questions and concerns, but he also gave my husband so much attention and we both appreciated that. He made us feel like we can trust him to be a lead in our first pregnancy and his sense of humor and level of competency were a good fit for us. We will return for a second visit.

First things first: Dr. Buterman is fantastic. He is an exceptionally skilled OB who made my pregnancy an easy, stress free, and surprisingly funny experience. If this review were only keyed to his knowledge and bedside manner, I would give him five stars--hands down. I do think, however, that there are some serious problems with his office staff and nurses. My medical forms and test results were frequently misplaced/lost; I was billed for blood work and urine analysis that was never performed; basic logistical details about my pregnancy (e.g. preregistering at Lenox Hill up to six weeks before my delivery) were never communicated to me; my insurance details were incorrectly noted 2-3 times and billing practices were not clearly explained; and the nurses often gave conflicting information about medical procedures (e.g., one chided me for not getting a 30 week biophysical profile that the doctor had never mentioned). Additionally, the office does not seem to be up-to-date on screening protocols for pregnant women. For instance, universal screening for toxoplasmosis is no longer recommended for low-risk women due to the rate of high false positives, but the nurses insisted I do it at 32 weeks--long after it would have made a difference for the fetus or for me. Maybe it's ironic, but for me the most stressful part of being pregnant was dealing with these various glitches on the part of Dr. Buterman's support team. I started my care with a different provider (in a different state; we moved when I was about 12 weeks along), so I know that this is not the norm. The three star rating, then, is to let other women know that if you do choose Dr. Buterman as your OB, you must be an advocate for yourself and stay vigilant about the details of your healthcare. If you're okay with that, there's really no better OB out there.
