Dr. Butler has a great attitude. My children feel comfortable with him and seem to even enjoy their checkups!
Dr. Butler is the Best!!
Dr Butler is an exceptional pediatrician and its always a good experience in the office
we love this practice and are glad to have worked with Dr Butler all of these years. My son was prescribed a medication by a psychiatrist and this was not asked about. When i brought it up there was no assessment or reaction. I would recommend that when adolescents are prescribed meds that clinicians spend some time checking in with them about the goals, expectations, adherence and response to treatment.
I love Dr. Butler I'm 18 years old now and will transfer to adult PCP. I will miss the friendliness of the office. Always feel comfortable when I was there. Nothing but positive in the office. My mom said that we never had any bad experiences in the office or when we called the office.
Dr. Bulter has always shown me respect and giving my children great care
We love Dr. Butler!!
This provider has always been great! We have been with this provider since my oldest was born and that was in 1998.
we had an excellent experience with Dr Butler
Dr Butler and his staff are awesome.
Not only do I love Dr. Butler my 3 year old son loves him as well.. Wouldnt change a thing.. We also enjoy residents that we get to talk to Mike was very professional and was wonderful with my son. Always a great experience!
Dr Butler knows his patients well. He is friendly and speaks to you as an equal.
we presented on a Friday afternoon without an appt for an acute issue. the doctor was kind enough to see us & assessed & addressed my son's issue quickly & thoroughly. thankful for the expeditious & thoughtful care.
We have seen Dr. Butler for everyone of my child's well baby visits, and he is absolutely wonderful!
Dr. Butler and his staff are the best in Pittsburgh. I have recommended them to many friends. He is very thoughtful, listens well, takes time to address concerns ... he is an asset to Pittsburgh!
We LOVE Doctor Butler and his staff! Could not ask for anything better then them all for our daughter!
my children love Ccp and Dr butler!!!
Dr. Butler is wonderful - he always talks to my son in a way that is reassuring and straightforward. He addresses concerns in a kind way.
I always have a wonderful experience here.
Dr Butler is the BEST! he is always on time, quick, and great with the kids. Great MD!
Dr. Butler is a wonderful pediatrician. We're moving out of state, but I sure wish we could take him with us!
Dr. Butler is wonderful! He always makes me feel like a great parent
Our experience has never been anything but wonderful. My two year old was so excited to accompany her little brother to his doctor appointment just so she could see Dr. Butler. Both my son and daughter received flu vaccines at the same appointment and the nurse was very patient and gave me time to console my son before they gave my daughter her shot. They did not make me feel rushed or that I was wasting their time.
Dr. Butler always is very caring and concerned for my children. He always takes his time and is very informative. I will recommend him to my friends and family.
the wait time both in the waiting room before my appointment and the wait time in the exam room is ridiculous. my apt was at 8:15 how are you already so far behind schedule.
We recommend this practice (and Dr. Butler and Turzai in particular) to anyone who asks (and some that don't). Great providers
Dr. Butler is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time and answers all of your questions.
my child's provider has been excellent since the first day of service. he has had the greatest bedside manner to my son since he was 2 days old and has never made me feel like the concerns or questions were dumb and has always told me that being a great parent is paying attention and never think your in stinks aren't right because you know your child best and to call and ask as many questions as you need.
dr Butler is the beat
Most of the time we go we get a different doctor and each time as we leave my son says that he liked the doctor we saw so much he wanted THEM to be his doctor! He was even more emphatic this time with Dr. Butler. Great doctor and great place.
We received excellence service as always by Dr. Butler and the staff.
love dr butler he is so relatable and full of advice and information
Dr Butler is amazing with my kids. He is great with us and explains everything perfectly.
other than waiting for 45 minutes the visit was fine. Dr Butler and all of the Pgh Peds groupare the best in the city. we've known them for 25 years and our kids would not see anyone else.
Dr. Butler has been the most wonderful doctor over the past 18 years!
Dr. Butler is new to us and he did not miss a beat with my son's care from the last physician. He was excellent.
We drive from out near the airport because we love Dr. Butler!
We are always impressed with Dr. Butler and all of his staff - they are excellent, caring and responsive. Dr. Butler is wonderful with children and very knowledgeable, with a kind bedside manner for child and parent alike.
I love this practice! everyone is kind and very concerned about the kids. they listen well and respect the boys personal thoughts as well as the comments and insight that I make.
Aside from the delay in being seen, our visit was exceptional (especially with the nurse and Dr. Butler).
Dr. Butler has been both of my children's pediatrician since they were born. He has always been available to speak with us about any concerns or issues. He listens to us during healthcare discussions and always provides reassurance to us as parents.
my child was very reluctant to get shots, staff worked together to get the job done quickly and kindly
We always feel very well taken care of at CCP! Dr. Butler always is very positive and encouraging!
Dr. Butler is wonderful with interacting with my child and very informative. He seems to care deeply about his patients! I will definitely be recommending him to anyone who needs a pediatrician.
Dr. Butler is wonderful. He is the epitome of a caring, dedicated pediatrician. We love him!
We love this practice. The physicians (and PA's and nurses) are knowledgeable and thorough. The staff are efficient and professional. I find it interesting that none of the questions asked in this survey relate directly to the care received. It was excellent, by the way.
Dr. Butler has been my son's doctor since birth. He's an excellent practitioner & would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Butler is very nice, responsive, and very good with kids.
Dr Butler is a wonderful, caring, and very intuitive doctor. I always feel like we are in good hands when we see him:). He is very good at listening to a parent's concern, and gives very good, thorough care to his patients. Wonderful!!
We absolutely LOVE Dr. Butler and are so happy he is our pediatrician. My son always feels SO comfortable when coming to the office.
I have been incredibly pleased with Dr. Butler. My son is 4 months old and he takes the time at every appointment to answer every question that I have - even if its a lot and doesn't rush us out of our appointment! He is very calming - which is needed as I'm a first time mother. I would recommend him to everyone!
Dr. Butler is great!!
Dr Butler is the Best! He is caring, compassionate with an excellent bedside manner!
We are new to this practice and have only seen two of the doctors to date. Both experiences were very good. The doctors were friendly, professional and very good with my child. I will highly recommend this practice to everyone. Thank you.
Good experience! My child loved Dr. Butler
Took a lot of time and offered natural solutions in addition to medication.
I love all the doctors at this practice. I don't mind going to the clinic because I know they are all great.
This office is always curtious and caring to my children. Everyone in the office from the front desk to the nurses to the doctors are wonderful. I recommend this office to my friends and family often!
Don't have any complaints we always have a satisfactory experience.
Dr. Butler is a true professional. He shows such kindness and has a wonderful personality along with his pediatric knowledge. I feel like we are in the best hands.
We just switched from another CCP practice. It was my daughter's first time being seen here, and she was nervous. She is typically very healthy and doesn't go to the doctor much other than for well visits. The entire staff were so friendly and kind to her. After we left, she said how really very nice Dr. Butler was to her.
Dr Lawrence was very nice and friendly. My kids were very comfortable around him.
we have seen Dr. Butler for 17 years. He is a "10" every time.
Dr. Butler is a wonderful practitioner. He and others at CCP Pittsburgh have extended themselves to meet my childs health care needs - saving him unnecessary hospital visits with their prompt response to his critical needs. They are an amazing, dedicated group of professionals who have my undying gratitude and respect.
We have received excellent care for the past two years. This is our first child so we have had lots of questions for our doctor and the nursing staff and have always received helpful, thorough, and kind service. I have recommended this practice to a friend who is due with her first child next month.
This is an excellent office throughout. The staff is professional and kind. Dr. Butler is the best pediatrician I have ever encountered. I would never consider sending my children to anyone else. He is personable and respectful of my children and their needs.
Dr. Butler and his staff are exceptional. I would never take my children to any other provider.
I called the office and asked to have my 3 children seen because we recently found out our insurance will be changing the first of the year, causing us to have significant out of pocket costs. Not only did they arrange for all of my children to be seen, they stacked the appointments together so that I only had to go to the office once. I am so appreciative of how hard the staff work to make things convenient for the parents. This staff is wonderful and Dr. Butler is the best. He spends so much time interacting with my children and they love him for it. He is wonderful and UPMC is lucky to have such an excellent physician on staff.
Dr Butler is an amazing peditrician!! We feel so lucky to have him as our children's Doctor since their births!!
We love Dr. Butler! It is unfortunately sometimes difficult to get an appointment with him (versus other providers in the practice) but he is wonderful! This visit was during their open walk in hours which made the opportunity to see Dr. Butler a special bonus.
Dr. Butler is very kind, helpful and is clearly well educated in pediatrics. I would recommend him to any friends and family.
dr butler is excellent!!
Wonderful staff and excellent care
We love this office. Always friendly and take time to listen! We recommend to friends in the area.
Dr.Butler is the most sensitive, and kind, and knowledgable person. I have 3 children in which the oldest is 15 and we have been with Dr. Butler for 15 years.
I love this office - the staff are always nice and friendly - they remember my child from visit to visit and I was in and out very quickly
In the last 9 years, we've moved a great deal, all over. It is only when we relocated to PA that I finally switched my son to a new pediatrician. Dr. Butler has not once made me regret that decision. Very happy with his care.
Dr Butler is the best! both of my kids can't wait to see him when we come in for appts. He makes them feel vey comfortable and truly cares how they are doing.
My childs visit was a sick visit and the team met the needs of my child . Dr. Butler has been my son's doctor since birth and been a very important member of my son's life. He and his practice are a God send.
We have seen Dr. Butler as our children's primary pediatrician for the past 8 years. He is wonderful. He spends a great deal of time with us and is so personable, knowledgeable and just down right a good person.
We have been coming to Dr. Butler for nearly 16 years. He not only provides excellent care for my 3 children, but also helps me as a parent to understand illnesses and conditions, often times putting my mind at ease. I am grateful for his knowledge, patience and exemplary bedside manner with my sons.
Dr. Butler could not have been more compassionate or attentive. Spoke directly to my daughter and put her completely at ease. Truly a kind person. This was the first (and second)time either of my children were seen at this office for a sick visit.
Dr. Butler is wonderful at answering questions and addressing my concerns.
My daughter loves Dr. Butler. She is excited to see him when needed as he is always so kind and gentle with her that she is never afraid to go visit him. I was not expecting for my daughter to have to get shots yesterday however the nurse was great with her and did it very quickly which it made it much easier for my child. Overall the staff is always so friendly.
we love Dr Butler! he's the best!
I love this office, the staff and Dr.butler. I was unsure if a pediatrician when my oldest was born..she is 11 now. Dr. butler was the first doctor I met after her birth and just loved his bed side manner and still the same today. he is compassionate and listens. I am very pleased with this office.
Dr. Butler and all of the staff at Pgh Peds in Shadyside are fantastic. Always. We truly appreciate their hard word and great attitudes!
Dr. Lawrence J. Butler is the best Pediatrician a parent could ever ask for..!! My family and I respect and appreciate him dearly..!!
dr butler makes me feel very comfortable with discussing the health of my child. I feel very confident having him handle the medical aspects of my child's life
excellent provider and experience always!
Dr. Butler is a wonderful doctor and is always available when needed for both my children.
Dr Butler and the staff has always given the out most care. A family where both of my children have been seen in this office for over 11 years , I can not think of taking them anywhere else. The level of care they both receive has been outstanding. I have recommended this office to many family members and friends for their children and they also have been pleased.
We love CCP wexford. Dr. Butler is superior.
We have seen Dr. Butler and Dr. Rowland since our two children were born. We could not be happier with the service they provide -- we recommend them constantly. When we are in their office it is as if we are the most important people there. Their continued reassurance to us as parents makes us comfortable and welcome. My kids actually enjoy seeing their doctors!!
We love Dr. Butler. He always treats us with respect, answers ALL of our questions, explains what he does during an exam, and supports our interests as parents. One of our favorite aspects of seeing Dr. Butler is that no question is treated as a stupid question - and we're first time parents, so we probably ask some odd questions.
Dr. Butler is a very efficient doctor, he cares for my children and always has great advice.
I have complete confidence and trust in Dr. Butler.
Dr. Butler is a blessing to our family. He is always very thorough and listens intently to all concerns. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand. I wish all Dr.'s treated their patients the way that Dr. Butler does.
Dr. Butler has been our Sons' pediatrician since just after their births (Dr. Stewart gave initial exams in hospital) and we have been very pleased with his professionalism and demeanor.
We love coming to see Dr. Butler
Dr. Butler is the BEST!!!!!! He's fantastic with both of my both! He's honest, direct and listens.
We love Dr. Butler
Dr Butler is awesome. He takes his time and explains things clearly. He never makes you feel rushed he takes his time. He is an excellant doctor.
Dr. Butler has a wonderfully caring bedside manner that always sets my children (and me!) at ease. We had our choice of several physicians on this visit, and we chose to see Dr. Butler without hesitation. We have complete trust in him.
Always takes the time to talk and explain anything I am questioning
We love Dr. Butler! He is an excellent doctor - empathetic and enthusiastic. We have already recommended him and this practice to friends.
Dr. Butler has been a fantastic doctor! I was glad that he was doing the walk-in clinic on Friday
