Dr. Butnariu is one of the best doctors I have seen for my health care and concerns. I can't really recall any other medical professional I have seen that has followed-up with phone calls, as much as Dr. Butnariu has!

Dr. Butnariu was knowledgeable & kind. She was concerned about finding a way to manage inflammation that is sustainable and with as few side effects as possible. I appreciate that a lot.

Dr. Butnariu came highly recommended, lives up to that. I think she is awesome doctor, seems genuinely concerned about me & my health concerns.

Explained what was wrong with me, and told me all the different options. I live about 2.5 hours away and Dr. Butnariu ordered a CT scan and blood work for me, and she made it work so I could get everything done that same day which saved me an extra trip, I am very grateful for that.
