Dr. Butnariu is awesome, really seems to care about me.

Reviewed on Jul 11, 2018

Dr. Butnariu was extremely attentive to my health care issues. She was very knowledgeable about my disease and its affects on my body as a whole. She ordered tests that have never been done on me that are pertinent to my disease. I was relieved that I would not be having the same old tests done again. Finally, something different...and maybe some answers for me!!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. B. was very effective at helping me understand the current status of my ulcerative colitus. She actually did a rather extensive overview with me on a white board.

Reviewed on Mar 03, 2018

She was interested in what I did to be in remission. When I said I'd rather use a satellite office for my colonoscopy, she was very helpful.

I had a new concern and she gave great suggestions. Problem got solved.

I have hearing loss, and the Dr. picked up on it and spoke clearly and graciously repeated when I did not understand what she said.
