“When I was 14 years old, I was in a serious accident. A great doctor saved my life. The experience of being a patient inspired me to want to help others and become a physician. I have been taking care of patients and their families in North Carolina for over 10 years,” says new provider Dr. Erik Butler.
Dr. Butler attended medical school at Midwestern University, graduating in 2004. He did his residency and internship at Duke University.
“It is a privilege to care for patients through all stages of life. I approach each patient as a unique individual and try to provide the care I would want for my own family. I like to help my patients achieve their personal health goals, make informed medical decisions, and navigate the health care system. I am particularly interested in cardiovascular health, dermatology, musculoskeletal medicine and prevention of disease.”
Having grown up in Florida, Dr. Butler enjoys sharing his love for the ocean and surfing with his wife and four children. He also enjoy beekeeping and gardening.”
He is interested in: family medicine, individual and community care, cardiovascular health, dermatology, musculoskeletal medicine, and disease prevention.
