I feel very confident about Dr. Butler. He did my previous surgery and I am planning that he is doing my next. He is kind, compassionate, professional. He is careful, thorough, attentive, listening, answers all questions. I never feel rushed or dismissed. He talks through issues, providing information in a balanced way. He has been good with surgery, follow-up, planning for future surgery, options, etc. It has been a very positive experience and I feel safe and comfortable with a choice of him as surgeon.

Disclosures

Bennet Arthur Butler, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
