Bryan Butler, M.D.
Cancer Care, Colon & Rectal Surgery
Why did you decide to go into medicine?
Because of a deep desire to help others and my fascination with human anatomy and physiology. I consider being able to do surgery as one of the greatest privileges anyone could have
To me, treating people well means:
Considering the person as a whole, explaining to the best of my ability what the problem is and how we can try to help, and allowing each person to participate in the decision making process regarding the options for treatment
