Long wait and confusing handling of my insurance. They asked for a payment that wasn't necessary which if I hadn't understood my insurance fully I would have paid, and I'm sure others do. Good visit once I was seen after the one hour wait.

Definitely don’t suggest Dr. Buttrick. Took over two months for the office to review prior history and get back to me. Generally, not sure he cares much about the issues you bring up. I told him I had a bump onmy head that he didn’t even look at. Went and saw another doctor two weeks later because I didn’t trust the appointment with him.

He seemed to enjoy using words I didn't know, and talking down to me. The wait was way too long. Also I feel the billing was unfair/too high.

Dr. Buttrick is very thorough and takes time with his patients. It is very refreshing to finally have a doctor that listens, asks clarifying questions, and does everything in his power to understand what may be ailing you instead of assuming,prescribing, and moving on to the next patient in queue. Highly recommend!

Dr. Buttrick did a great job. I felt he was really thorough, and took the time to address any issues and answer all questions I had. He does get really detailed explaining things (especially if you press for more details), but I'd rather have too much information then not enough.

He is very old school maybe too much, but still gets the job done my issue is that after being in the hospital and having 2 Iv's and 3 blood draws in one arm (5 needles) I went to dr.buttrick thenext day and his nurse did ONE blood draw and I had major bruises for almost two weeks. The second issue is that I have been callin for two weeks to the office because my pharmacy needed pre authorization from him to fill a prescription he just gave me. It have now been off of this med for two weeks because his office won't do their job. My pharmacist knows who I am because of how often he has to call them and how often he was to request pre authorizations to no avail. He finally has told me I need to find a new doctor because quite frankly this one does not care about me as a patient or as a person.

Dr. Buttrick was super informative and very thorough in getting to know me as a new patient. There was a bit of a wait (approx. 15 minutes in waiting room and 15 minutes in exam room) however after seeing how thoroughhe is in explaining so that I can understand things, I can understand the wait time. Overall a wonderful experience, glad to have him as a new doctor.

**WARNING** Printed all over the office is a notice asking for an additional fee that was triple my co-pay. Do not pay without asking about this! Upon inquiry the staff wasn't entirely sure about why they were charging this additional fee.I asked the doctor and after delivering a response that he wasn't entirely sure of I was refunded for my visit. Also, I showed up 15min early to get my paperwork done and doctor showed up 15 minutes late. I waited another 15 minutes to go into the patient room and then another 15 for the doctor to show up. By the time I left for a routine physical it was 1.5 hours. Though the doctor was very nice I will be looking elsewhere for primary care.

He is a very informative doctor and will go over each and every concern you have, no matter how minute or off the wall it seems to be. He knows what he is talking about and speaks in plain English, soyou also understand what is going on with you and your health. There may be a slightly longer wait time than most, but that is so he can ensure that his patients leave healthy, informed, and happy.

You may wait a little at this office but it's because Dr. Buttrick spends a lot of time with each patient. He talks you through his questions and thought process and really explains his "doctoring." He let me ask questions anddidn't make me feel like I was waiting his time. The MA is super nice too.
