CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Fights Back Against Diabetes in Marshall with New Physician March 21, 2019

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic continues to expand access to life-saving health care in the Marshall community with the addition of Valerie Butler, D.O., and the CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Endocrinology practice.

“Rates of diabetes and other chronic conditions are higher in Marshall than the national averages, so it is crucial that we directly address the needs of the communities we serve,” said Shanna Konvalin, administrative director of CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic in Marshall. “Dr. Butler will provide a tremendous resource to our patients in Marshall and the surrounding areas. She is a passionate and talented physician, and we are excited to have her joining the team.”

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Endocrinology specialists like Dr. Butler are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to patients as part of a team approach to managing patients’ diabetes, endocrine diseases, metabolic diseases and more. The CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Internal Medicine team in Marshall and Dr. Butler share both clinic space and a strong desire to provide patients with integrated care. They work together to provide a collaborative, team approach to caring for patients with chronic conditions like diabetes.

Dr. Butler joins the CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic team from Barksdale Airforce Base in Shreveport, Louisiana, where she provided primary care treatment to service members and their families. Dr. Butler earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida before finishing medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and her residency at Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Butler pursued additional training, completing an Endocrinology Fellowship at the Indiana University School of Medicine. She is certified by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Internal Medicine Board, the AOA Endocrinology Board, and the American Board of Internal Medicine, and she is a member of the AOA, American Medical Association, Endocrine Society and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

“Our goal is to provide the treatments and services that the people of Marshall need most, and the endocrinology expertise Dr. Butler offers is key to providing a full spectrum of care to this community,” said Konvalin.

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic - Marshall is conveniently located at 815 S. Washington Ave, Ste. 100, and is currently accepting patients. The endocrinology providers at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic offers a wide range of services to assist patients, including access to a registered dietitian to assist with special needs such as: diabetes education, nutritional counseling, meal planning and cholesterol education.

“I enjoy working with patients to help them manage their diabetes and improve their overall health,” said Dr. Butler. “I believe in a patient-centered, evidence-based approach to medicine. Patients are so vulnerable when they go to the doctor, and I believe they are entitled to high quality, science-based care. I want every patient that comes to the office and to feel like they are in a judgement-free zone where we can work together to meet their health goals.”
