Kidney disease is near and dear to Dr. Butt after being exposed to the field at a young age in college for a research study where he studied how patients utilize their time while on dialysis. Now, he looks forward every day to working with his patients. Helping patients improve their overall health and reach their goals is one of the most exciting aspects of his job. Working in a community-based setting has allowed him the opportunity to focus on patient care at a level that he would not be able to do anywhere else.
Dr. Butt’s most common procedures are Hemodialysis, Peritoneal dialysis, & Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy. He enjoys working in a team setting and hearing viewpoints on different issues. Input from his colleagues, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, and patients inform how he practices medicine and tailors his approach to the individual needs of the patient. Finding new and thoughtful approaches to his patients’ questions helps Dr. Butt both grow as a physician and improve his practice.
Medicine is a continuously evolving field. With better research and treatment options, the answers are always changing. Dr. Butt believes that is up to him and physicians like him to be life-long learners and be ready to question the status quo.
In his free time, Dr. Butt enjoys spending quality time with his family, exercising, traveling, and watching movies.
