“One of my medical colleagues who practices in a city said she could not imagine living and working in a small town where she would run into patients wherever she went. I can't imagine living in a community where I didn't run into my patients. I'm a small town person who watched my uncle, my role model, practice medicine in a small town and I never considered any other way. Nantucket is a tight-knit community. I am glad to be a part of it.”

Dr. Butterworth and his wife Kathy have three children, all of whom were born at Nantucket Cottage Hospital and are graduates of Nantucket High School. Besides medicine, Dr. Butterworth loves Nantucket history, historic preservation, and walking his dog Bo.
