Dr. Buterman is the way a good Dr should be. I trust him implicitly. He is caring and makes sure that the patient feels comfortable and asks if the patient has any questions and he really means it. He has been my physician for many years. I just wish him good health so that he can continue to provide the excellent care that he has been giving throughout the years. I highly recommend him !

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.

After my last visit with him, I'm searching for a new doctor. I have hit my breaking point with the waiting times and the rushed nature of the visit when I actually do get to see him. For once-a-year check-ups, it's not a big deal, but now that I'm pregnant and have to go in every few weeks, it's not working out. I can't be skipping out of work for 2-3 hours for these appointments. Plus, the doctor barely spends any time talking to me. He spent about a minute (not exaggerating) for my last appointment, for which I waited more than 1.5 hours to see him. He was practically out the door before I could even rattle off a few questions I had. In fact I had more questions I would have liked to ask, but he was in such a hurry to get out of there that I felt I couldn't ask them. (Mind you this is in the exam room with the nurses present; he didn't offer to meet with me separately in his office afterwards). I have spent lots of time doing research and informing myself, but there are some things you just want to talk to your doctor about (especially as this is my first pregnancy). I waited a long time to see him, so one would think he could also be respectful of my time and give me say, more than one minute to discuss my questions and concerns. Unfortunately this wasn't the case.

staff is borderline polite, but nobody's nice / warm. Doc didn't even say hello, told me to sit down and then said "talk to me". While explaining the results of my test, he took a call and started talking to a friend about going to the opera. Half-joked about something I really didn't think was appropriate to joke about. Office seems outdated and not spotlessly clean. Doc's desk was littered with magazines / nicknacks etc. I assume he's professional and knows what he's doing, but the overall atmosphere makes me find another doctor.

I was reccomended to Dr. Buterman by my PCP and my GYN. I was very ill and extremely nervous when I went to see him. He immediately recognized that I was nervous and distraught over my illness and the prospect of not being able to have children. He reassured me that I would be better and that there were options. Dr. Buterman and his staff were very professional, and pleasant each time I went to the office.
