From my initial consultation to, so far, the post-operative visits I have been confident in Mr Butler's professional competence, empathy and ability to explain the details of my operation's benefits and risks in plain English. He exudes a professional, but relaxed, style which is certain to put the most anxious of patients at their ease. On the day of the operation, our pre-operative meeting and the interaction as the operation was getting under way were reassuring and I got thought he led his team with an easy confidence which generated a positive, calm atmosphere in the operating theatre. During my post-operative visit, the following morning Mr Butler, an obviously busy man, gave me the impression that he was happy to spend as much time with me as was necessary to explain the outcome of the operation, reassure me of its success and ensure any questions I might have were answered. I have every confidence that any future consultations will have the same positive outcome and, as I reflected in the star system above, would have no hesitation in recommending his skills to future patients.
I have been with me butler who has felt with for 8half years sine my ankle was severely smashed up when he first came a consultant and dealt with a been bone in loads of pieces and he put them.all together I had an operation nearly 3 weeks I juSt had the white thick plaster off and atiched out and but into a boot and today Sunday 22nd July I took the dressing off and hibby scrubbed daughter did it as she is a medic and all has healed I went straight into a boot and love the weekend. Swelling going down slowly sore to walk on touch bearring but I had subtubler fusion nail put up in the bone and screws in it I am pleased with the progress this so far hope this operation this time is successful.
Mr Butler is very approachable and friendly. He immediately put me at ease and I felt very confident in his treatment of my condition. He made every effort to ensure I got the most appropriate treatment as quickly as possible.
I feel very lucky to have Mr Butler as my consultant, he gives me very good advice he is always caring and helpful and I feel he wants to do the best for me. When it comes to the time to have my knee and ankle replaced I will have total confidence in him.
I met Mr Butler for the first time today and I found him very nice, friendly and he listened to my concerns. I have every confidence in him as he is going to perform an operation on my leg. I know that I can trust that he will do a good job. I had arrived early for my appointment and was seen almost immediately. I had a pleasant experience at St Michaels as I am normally nervous of going to the hospital. I felt at ease with the doctor and the nurse,
