Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Very nice, very understanding, explains things well. Felt comfortable. I found my Dr.
As always, brilliant, professional, and fun. He's the BEST!
Dr. Buttrick was extremely informative and professional. I have had type 1 diabetes for 7 years and he explained quite a few things about my condition that no other Dr. has.
He was very thorough and knowledgeable. He took his time and didn't rush anything.
Easy to set appointment. Very attentive and interested in my well being. Gave as much detail as I wanted.
Great appointment with Dr. Buttrick. He was very thorough with explaining everything and east to talk with. Office staff was great too.
Very nice Doctor. Really listened to my concerns. Unfortunately, I was kept waiting for almost an hour.
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 the next 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 took time to explain what was going on with me in a level of detail I have never had from any other healthcare provider. It really put my mind at ease and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
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 thorough he 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.
Went in for a routine check up and some questions, the nurses, staff and Dr. Buttrick were very friendly and efficient. All my questions were promptly answered.
Dr Buttrick was very nice and helpful. Explained everything so I understood everything.
Very compassionate Doctor with great bedside manner.
**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.
Dr. Buttrick was very professional and attentive. I really enjoyed speaking with him and felt confident that he would take care of me.
Dr, Buttrick took his time and is thorough.
Very informative. Explained everything clearly. Friendly. Cordial.
Dr. Buttrick was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend his practice.
First time seeing Dr. Buttrick or any doctor for quite some time. Went for a general physical assessment under Medicare but also had a behavioral health issue I wanted to discuss. Very good experience overall.
I have seen many, many doctors in my lifetime. Dr. Buttrick spends more time with me, explaining everything completely in ways that anybody can understand. He is not rushing off to see the next patient. Best Doctor I have been to. BW

Very professional and precise. Spends time with each patient to cover all the bases and options. Has a sense of humor. Will highly recommend.
Very thorough, believes in empowering his patients to know what their condition is and how to handle it. Believes in recommendations for other doctors who are specialists in their field. Likes to talk about medicine and how your body works, and wants you to really understand.
Hewas very informative
Just moved here from Tennessee and he was the first doctor I met here in Denver and I was really impressed!
So caring and helpful. I'm glad I switched docs and am now with Dr. Buttrick.
Quick, friendly and patient.
My first visit with Dr Buttrick was excellent - he explained everything to me.
Dr. Buttrick seems very nice and knowledgeable and doesn't rush you through first consultations. I appreciate that.
The Dr. was professional, and explained everything well. I'm not a fan of going to the Dr, but if you are looking for a new Dr. in the area I would recommend giving him a try.
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 and didn't make me feel like I was waiting his time. The MA is super nice too.
Dr Buttrick spent over an hour with my father, a new patient. He was kind, courteous, and most importantly, interested!
Doctor Buttrick was very professional and offered lots of helpful advice. Highly recommend!
He takes the time to explain everything to you.
He’s a great doctor, and a real person!
Dr. Buttrick was knowledgeable, engaged and pretty funny actually. I feel confident being treated by him. The wait was very short and the office personnel were also friendly and helpful.
went great a very common sense doctor that listens
I went to Dr. Buttrick for an annual physical and he was very insightful - conveying the issues at hand with ease and allowing me to ask as many questions as I needed.
Everyone in the office was great from the staff to Dr. Buttrick. Very knowledgeable, professional, and personable.
THANK-YOU ZocDoc.com for helping me find an EXCEPTIONAL medical professional for my primary care doctor! After a severe health incident and an extended hospital stay, I needed to establish a primary care physician as I'd not had a standard medical appointment in several years. I found Dr. Theodore Buttrick through the ZocDoc.com website and scheduled an appointment. Dr. Buttrick's office was one of the first that set up an appointment on the next available weekday date, and I selected the best time for my schedule. I received a nice reminder phone call on Friday (for my Monday appointment) and was reminded what to bring, and encouraged to arrive a little early to complete the initial visit paperwork. A text message AND email also reminded me of the scheduled appointment, so I was happy that the process was so thorough as I tend to be a bit forgetful of appointment times, etc. (especially since setting up this appointment was so quick and effortless) I arrived a half hour early and was seen right after I'd completed the medical intake forms. Everything was what I would have expected -- and then above and beyond what I'd expected with regards to the level of professionalism from this doctor! With the health issues I've had in the past few years, I've seen a dozen or so doctors for different aspects of healthcare -- but Dr. Buttrick certainly impresses me as the VERY BEST OF THE BUNCH! Seriously! He was extremely thorough, and wanted to take time to scrutinize my health history so that he was aware of all of the issues and concerns I've dealt with regarding my health and life-long health history. His assistant was extremely helpful in collecting my paperwork and copying medical records I'd brought, and also assisted with blood draws and my next follow-up steps, etc. So,..... a week ago, I'd never heard of anything called "ZocDoc" -- and once I found it, I was admittedly a tiny bit skeptical because it seemed so simple and easy to set an appointment. Everything went off without a hitch, however, and my appointment was exactly as scheduled. I got to meet (and appreciate) one of the best medical professionals I've ran into in a very long time, and I was extremely pleased with what good care and thoughtful recommendations I received. I found exactly the health care provider I've wanted for the past decade -- and still can't believe it was that simple! Thank-you, Zoc Doc, (whoever you are!) for referring me to Dr. Theodore Buttrick. He's a gem, and a true professional doctor who practices medicine the way it should be done --- thoughtfully, carefully, diligently and with utmost professionalism. I'm extremely pleased, and happy to answer any additional questions you might have regarding my experience with Dr. Buttrick, his office, and staff. TEN STARS!!!!!! First Class! -thom g June 8, 2013 :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
Thorough and knowledgeable
Seemed very knowledgeable and good with patient interaction.
The office staff are very nice. Renee (doc's assistant) made me feel at ease. The doctor is friendly and thorough. He takes his time to explain and listen.
I saw Dr. Buttrick because I was looking for a new primary care doctor. My appointment acted as an 'interview' of sorts. I was completely satisfied with our conversation and I am happy to say I expect to have a long doctor/patient relationship with Dr. Buttrick.
Dr. Buttrick was able to get me in right away and treat me, he is very knowledgeable and explains in detail of the symptoms I had and how we could treat it. Looking forward to working with him in the future as a primary care Doctor!
The office is at a good location that is easy to fine . Very nice doctor, he took the time to explain thing. He seemed to care and I did not feel like he was in a rush to get me out so he could get to the next person. This was my first visit so I will not make a judgment yet. I am much more pleased with this doctor then the last one that I used.
I appreciated the time Dr Buttrick took to speak with me about my medical issues. I am an RN and he spoke to me respectfully and at a proper level. It was great.
Dr. Is very thorough and listens.
I'm very happy that I found him. He listen to me and explain all the concerns and way now for prevanted medicine. Very happy.
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, so you 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.
Looking forward to working with Dr Buttrick as my primary doctor
It was kinda odd visit because he acted different from the 1st visit . I'm not sure what to make of this visit.
he is a very good doctor, he explain all my meds very well .
Great... He listened and answered all our questions. He gave us good sound advise. We plan to make him our GP here in Denver.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Buttrick is an extremely knowledgeable, down to earth individual who's bedside manner is the best I've seen from any doctor. He takes the time to fully explain his diagnosis and WHY he prescribes something as well as being able to make you feel welcome. The staff at the office is ver friendly and I would highly recommend Dr. Buttrick to anyone.
I got their at 225;pm on wenday 5/7/2014 i has appointment i make for my Nice and the land were not nice.
He's a good guy and tries hard to be sure the patient understands.
The worst experience with a MD ever. Stay away !!! The front desk people are very uncaring a very are not willing to except or correct there own mistakes. RUN !!!!!
He is a great doctor and made sure he took the time to fully understand what was going on and give a proper diagnosis without missing any details. Very thorough and enjoyable to meet with.
He was very thorough and I really appreciated that.
Completely professional yet still personable, explained everything in very simple to relate to terms and made sure to be thorough in assessing my condition. So glad I made my appointment with him!
I havent heard from his office since my visit, every time i call i cant get through, they did blood test but havent let me know the results. its been over a month now, requested a sleep study, still havent heard back. office very uncomfortable.just my opinion, wont go back.
Excellent!!! He is a very nice guy with a ton of knowledge and is very happy to take is time and share it with you. Great experience.
Office has no computer so they did not have all the information i spent the time to fill out online before my visit. This is 2014, no computer!?
took time to answer questions, very thorough in detail.
one of the most caring doctors I've ever seen!
Very efficient and professional. I feel I've made an excellent choice for my GO.
I recommend him in the highest of regard, very pleased with him
Overall great experience
Honest, intuitive, straight-forward, understood what I was looking for. Dr. B realizes that this is a cooperative adventure and that we both have choices. I was looking for a doctor who understood I was looking for information, maturity, options and consultation. I enjoyed his method. I think I'll stay with him, assuming he wants me as a patient!
He was one of the best doctors I have ever seen he took time to listen and was very polite and proffestional he explained everthing in detail I would recamend anyone for him to be anyones doctor
First time in. I would use him again for sure
This is the first doctor I felt truly listened and knew exactly what he was talking about. I didn't feel like he was trying to put my symptoms and medical history in this perfect little box, he really discussed things with me.
Over all it met my expectations.
They just need to be a little more caring but over all it was ok I just didn't feel that comfortable cause it was my first time
He is the best doctor I have ever seen.he listened and he cared about me..very professional and intelligent ..
He was thorough and attentive. I intend to use him as my primary care doctor from now on.
Very intellegent, and commits to well explained presentations of medical conditions. One of the best doctors I have EVER seen...
It was great! Doc Buttrick is very knowledgeable and explained and answered all my questions in great detail. He is now my personal doctor.
Highly intuitive and intelligent. Dr. Buttrick spends time diagnosing, not just treating. Thus, he provides more targeted and thoughtful investigation and treatment. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
He was very good at listening to my health concerns and discussing possible treatments.
Wasn't attentive & didnt value his patients time. The office has a strong policy about time management and advance with cancelling appointments, but they do not seem to give them same policy in return.
Very professional and insightful. Really makes a point to make medical terms/conditions understandable and enjoyed hearing more anatomy/physiology information about what was of concern to me. Seems like a great guy!
It was a hard day for me as I had struggled through the snow to get to the offices. My anxiety was off the chart. I could tell the office was having a string of emergencies--but despite all that Dr. Buttrick took the time to talk to me and calm me down--even though he had to stay late to spend that time with me. This is my 3rd visit and I'm pretty convinced he's one of the kindest people I've run across lately
Very satisfactory visit. Doctor and staff are first rate.
doesnt take credit or debit card even with insurance
This was a very good visit for me--Dr. Buttrick was quick to put me at ease and did an outstanding job of explaining each part of my treatment. I want to make him my permanent Doctor
