Dr. Rashid A. Buttar
Graduate of the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences, College of Medicine and Surgery. He trained in General Surgery and Emergency Medicine and served as Brigade Surgeon and Director of Emergency Medicine while serving in the U.S. Army. Dr. Buttar is board certified in Clinical Metal Toxicology, Preventive Medicine, is board eligible in Emergency Medicine and has achieved fellowship status in three separate medical societies.
Dr Buttar lives in New Zealand as I understand. He is never there. I went in for a Myers Cocktail and no one knew what was in it, they did not have all the ingredients and the retired nurse who was there for the day blew up my vein.
So I'm not rating him on his work because I'm not a patient of his, but seems like many other people have rated him without being his patient. I saw many functional medicine doctors in Toronto way before I heard of Dr Buttar, they all give you a book to read, their book, a handbook that is essential to set your mind in the right direction before you under go their therapy. This is not a quick fix and it always costs so much money, doesn't matter which country you're from. If you're not willing to put in the time and money it won't work. Unfortunately only available to the wealthy, I wish all practices around the world would change to make it more affordable but that doesn't mean its not legit.
Dr. Buttar should focus on what he does best, and that is saving lives through holistic healing. Drop the conspiracy theories and political views. He's helping to feed the fuel of chaos and ultimately murder. My perspective and respect for him have deteriorated. He is part of the problem.
Called to get pricing, was refused pricing information because they want to setup a consult first that is over $400. I get that the therapy should be personalized 100%, but I cannot afford a consult that leads nowhere if I cannot afford the therapy. Was just needing pricing on chelation therapy. I could have used any information, any type of range or estimation of any kind... I already have test results, I JUST need the therapy.
I would like to know what are the 5 stars for if there is no rebuttal about these people's experiences. Why are the employees not responding to the low ratings? Are the negative comments true? Are the NP's really as bad as stated?My decent rating is because of his book I'm reading: The 9 Steps to Keep the Doctor Away. Yet, I'm concerned about the low ratings and even the high ratings with no details on why the ratings are high.Dr. Buttar, please do not allow people to lose hope. Please have your staff to rebuttal on these responses, or better yet, you should rebuttal.I was encouraged watching your videos and reading your book. After reading these negative reviews and seeing 'silent' positive stars, my optimistic outlook is weakening.If you love what you do and you do what you love, let it transcend through everything, including the reviews of your life-saving business.
I'm a RN and I think it's an Awesome experience every time I here him speak... He's. ON POINT. 100%... Oh how I would love to have a beer with this DOCTOR, by a bonfire and just talk into the wee hours of the morning....Being behind the Health Care scene you wouldn't believe what we see and have KNOWLEDGE OF... so no fear here... It's GAME ON IN MY PROFESSION EVERYTIME I PUNCH THE TIME CLOCK
I had a friend visit Dr. Buttars with cancer and she was so impressed and she is in remission! The treatment was affordable. He will work with you financially. Same for Autism. Also, he tells you in his videos how to heal naturally. Fantastic customer service and compassionate.
We took our mom here because her cancer came back and we opted for the holistic approach the 2nd time around. The consultation was great with the Nurse Practitioner, she was very knowledgeable, etc. We felt we had found the right place.Everything changed once we made the decision to mover forward. We paid approximately $8,000 for the initial set up, blood work, supplements etc. to get mom ready for the treatment. Once the payment was made, things quickly changed. We were handed a book with the supplements and rushed out of the office. The 3 days process was less than 8 hours over a 2 day period. We were overwhelmed with what needed to be done in a 2 to 3 week period with little to no help.The only way we got help once was when we said we didn't think we were going to move forward....then we got a phone call-1 phone call with the Nurse Practitioner/Doctor. We asked repeatedly for a list of the supplements with the associated cost, a high level overview of what would be needed after the 1 or 2 4 week treatment process that was needed which would have been around 100,000 and could not get any information about it.I would highly suggest getting all the information/cost upfront before you proceed because you will not get it once you commit. I was so shocked and disappointed in the lack of information and or help offered once we started the process. I believe this is a valid treatment and they are legit but you will be on your own a lot....be prepared.
After my wife was diagnosed with peritoneal cancer she knew she did not want to go the conventional medicine route. We read Dr Buttar's book "The 9 Steps to Keep the Doctor Away" and it made sense. The Center for Advanced Medicine provides a treatment protocol for cancer that deals with the cause and not the symptoms like chemotherapy. The whole premise is to build up the immune system to fight the disease and therefore is a positive, strengthening process. Dr. Sara Barbour and the staff at The Center are truly caring and they provide a high level of service. You receive lots of attention and the level of detail in the treatment is extraordinary. After she completed a four week protocol at The Center for Advanced Medicine, we would highly recommend this treatment protocol, it is truly an inspirational experience.
1 star review is too kind. Had a family member who went to his clinic because on some websites he claimed to have a cure for cancer. Absolutely the worst care imaginable and would never recommend anyone going to this location. He is a complete scam artist and should not have a medical license. Charged my ill family member thousands of dollars a day for all sorts of vitamin Iv's. My family member ended up in the hospital and died a few months later. He should have never agreed to treat a patient that sick. Absolutely corrupt man who is only in it to make money. If you are sick with any illness please please please go to another physician for your own sake.
My hopes shuttered.Seeing many natural health videos with Dr. Buttar and reading his book I was impressed with his spirituality and vision on healing, I was hopeful he will help. Made an appointment for my husband with Dr. Buttar's nurse-practitioner. Apparently she didn't read the chapter in Dr. Buttar's book that talks about laughter and positive attitude, she didn't smile once. The woman was cold and condescending, the hour of "consultation" consisted of her typing and occasionally asking questions that already were answered in the numerous forms that she didn't read and "shush..ing" when my husband tried to talk. The 5 minutes that she turned away from the computer she was unwilling to answer questions about 5 different supplements of unknown (to me) brand. Did she skip the chapter "less is more" about supplements in Buttar's book as well? My husband IS already taking supplements, but she wouldn't know because she didn't ask. She proceeded to present us with a paper with standard testing about $2500 worth and left. Not all the tests in my opinion were necessary, but NP had left by this time, so we didn't have a chance to discuss that. She sent in administrative assistant to talk about costs and then a nurse to talk about who knows what. The nurse lady, Elizabeth, tried to make it right, but was unable to change anything because "it is our policy" to take all or nothing.So, we wasted $385 to see woman type and were offered to have another 2 days of $1200 each without so much as clear explanation WHY, not counting $400 on supplements of unknown origin and processing (they may be good quality, but no one was able to say anything about it, let alone present proof of quality).SO, following DR. Buttar's advise , in his book that is, not in his office, we are so not coming back!
