“…a standard of excellence that others are truly inspired by.”
The true test of a great physician is the desire to serve all patients with compassion and respect. That is why so many members are grateful for Sherry Butler, MD, assistant chief of radiology at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City.
Radiology is a demanding specialty that requires knowledge about nearly all disease processes. In her practice, Dr. Butler interacts with a great variety of patients of all ages and medical conditions. “My practice philosophy entails assisting clinicians in finding disease when it is present, but also in doing my best to ease the fears of the patients with whom I interact,” says Dr. Butler.
Colleagues describe Dr. Butler as generous with her time, treatment, and most of all, her heart. “She is extremely sensitive to the emotional needs of her patients and their families,” says Sarah Beekley, MD. “Dr. Butler is also dearly committed to making every potentially difficult diagnostic test as stress free as possible.”
Dr. Butler has shown integrity, professionalism, and commitment in her work as assistant chief of the department and as lead in the Women in Medicine Program. Colleagues trust her judgment completely.
They know she will always take the extra time and effort to assist them in a difficult case and follow through with her commitments. “Her generosity in giving of her time and energy sets a standard of excellence that others around her are truly inspired by.”
