Allen H. Butler, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My practice philosophy is to focus on the individual with his or her unique needs and background. Healthcare is becoming ever more complex, often with a bewildering number of physicians and allied personnel. As your personal physician, I will strive to become your guide in the world of modern medicine and your partner in health and prevention.

As Dr. Francis Peabody said nearly 100 years ago, “One of the essential qualities of a clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is caring for the patient”.
