we always love seeing Dr. Butler!
Dr. Butler was kind and listened to me, was gentle with my 5 year old. He took the time to listen carefully to his lungs and found that he had pneumonia. One day later my son is already feeling better. Thank you Dr. Butler.
dr butler is the best! very thorough easy to talk to and listens to my concerns
Dr. Butler his staff and quite frankly all of the other providers at CCP in Wexford and Shadyside are caring and phenomenal at providing our children with the highest level of attention and care. We wish every child in the world received the same level of care we do at CCP Wexford. thank you!!
Dr. Butler is phenomenal. He is so kind and compassionate. We couldnt ask for a better pcp for our children!
Dr. Butler and his staff take the best care of my family. I am so grateful that they were recommended to me 8 years ago with my first son. I continue to recommend them to others.

Dr. Butler is always kind and courteous while handling all of our concerns and completing our son's wellness checks.
I always leave Dr Butler's office feeling so much better about things. He explains and reassures. You leave with the comfort that there is a 'Captain at the helm of the ship' of your child's healthcare. I cannot thank him enough for all of his years of service.
I've been taking my kids to dr Butler for nearly 19 years. he is the BEST!!!
Very good experience with provider. Always take time to listen to parents
Dr Butler was very friendly, listened to medical and emotional history, and suggested going to a specialist to rule out GI inflammation. He was the first doctor that didn't automatically suggest more fiber or dismiss our concerns as anxiety. I'm very happy that we changed practices.
Dr. Butler truly is the best pediatrician in Western PA. We feel so fortunate to have him care for both of our children. He always demonstrates knowledge, skill, compassion, and an unmatched bedside manner that inspires confidence in his ability. We feel very fortunate to have that peace of mind.
Dr. Butler is always excellent with us and our child. I like that he involves her in the conversation rather than just talking to the parents.

Dr Butler immediately established rapport with both my teen boys for their physicals. He spoke to them about healthy eating and waht to eat as athletes. He offered recommendations for my son's tinea versicolor and wrote script for ADHD meds for school year. He was excellent
Dr Butler was wonderful. He made my son feel very comfortable, he was able to talk and answer questions with out looking to me. Dr Butler explained thing perfectly for my son to understand and both my son and I left very happy with his visit.
it's one of the most unfriendly pediatric offices I've ever been in. I was grandma nobody even asked who I was bringing my grandson in no one's ever seen me before no one introduced themselves It was an awful in my opinion disrespectful atmosphere. it's too bad you guys all seem to hate your jobs. this is why we will be switching to Allegheny health Network and if necessary switch to Gateway or a highmark company
Dr. Butler is a wonderful physician for my children.
First time with Dr. Butler and he has excellent bedside manner.
fantastic pediatrician !
We live Dr Butler. He is professional. courteous and listens to my son. also explaining safety techniques for his sports.
We are always pleased with Dr Butler. The is an asset to the practice. He genuinely cares for my children and although we don't have many health concerns or problems, we know that we will be in good hands if we need a higher level of care.
Dr Butler is an extremely engaged and caring doctor. He took time to connect with my son and even came out to the waiting room to discuss a connection that came up in their conversation. It seems like a little thing, but these days, it's so rare for a physician to take the time to speak on a personal level to a patient or a patient's family. Time constraints just don't seem to allow for it. It's just nice to walk away with the feeling that a doctor cared about my son on a personal level. Also, he respected his developmental need for privacy which made my son much more comfortable.

Dr. Butler is a blessing and I'm very glad he is my daughter's pediatrician.
Dr. Butler is absolutely fantastic. He listened intently as we discussed our concerns and provided such great information and reassurance.

Dr Butler has been an excellent physician for my children the past 20 years
Dr. Butler always provides excellent care and takes the time to talk to my children. He showed genuine interest in my son's college interests and how he was doing currently in high school.
I've always had good experiences with my children's care provider. I just have a tough time with the bad timing of the offide. my son appointment was at 2:15, we didn't get into the room until 3:00pm and we was on time. That was very frustrating. I was literally about to reschedule because I had a another appointment to attend.
Dr. Butler is a very caring and knowledgeable physician.

Dr. Butler has been our family doctor for 20 years. My son teared up when he was too old to have him as a doctor. I wish every doctor was like him. I have 100 percent complete trust in him, and always enjoy seeing him. He has such a pleasant, happy, sweet personality that my kids love & feel they can talk to him honestly without judgement.
Dr. Butler is always so friendly and happy to see my kids. He has a positive outlook for everything and that makes us feel so good.
Dr. Butler truly is the best pediatrician we have ever encountered. My husband and I have been so fortunate to have him care for both of our children since we moved back to Pittsburgh.

dr Butler is great!!
Absolutely love the wexford office. The Doctors and Staff are the Greatest. Everyone in my family sees Dr. Lawrence Butler
Dr. Butler was efficient and gentle with my daughter. I liked that even though she was there for hives, he completed a full exam instead of just looking at the rash.
The provider communicates concisely and efficiently but also clearly with us. He is conscious about enunciating clearly and slightly slowly to ensure my wife's comprehension (English is a second language for her). The provider appears to us a genuinely caring doctor!

The Dr. discussed many things with my teens not simply medical but also life changing decision discussion(ie drugs, alcohol, sex etc.) and answered questions for college care as well.
We have been seeing Dr. Butler for 14 years. My son will be 18 next year and it will be sad to have to find an "adult" provider after next year's visit. We love Dr. Butler and he is so friendly and knowledgeable.
We waited at least half an hour from our appointment time and I sensed the doctor may have been a little rushed. He was very nice but I had a few questions I wanted to ask that I didn't get a chance to do because he was halfway out the door. the doctor did say to call with questions.
Dr. Butler is a wonderful caring physician. He listens and empowers families to care for their children in a way that is best for the child and for the family. We are so lucky to have him!
