LyfeWell's History & Our Future

LyfeWell is the vision of our Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Larry Butler, who for over forty years has maintained a track record of excellence with the formation of a diversity of businesses. LyfeWell officially opened the doors of its first stand-alone clinic in March of 2017, and has served hundreds of patients seeking relief from a wide spectrum of health conditions and injuries.

The company has plans to expand its present facility and begin a rapid expansion in order to serve the multitude of patients waiting to benefit from LyfeWell's standard of HBOT excellence.

Our Mission

At LyfeWell, our mission is to balance clinical excellence with safe, high-quality, compassionate care for our patients while providing evidence through the process of education when it comes to the matter of alternative healthcare in America.

Additionally, we place the utmost importance upon providing our patients and their families with a superior level of customer service. To that end, we actively seek feedback from our patients, and we value that feedback and use the information on an ongoing basis to continually improve and enhance our customers’ experiences.

Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric facilities pioneer leading-edge procedures and protocols and allow us to maintain this commitment to uncompromising standards each and every day.

We conduct ongoing, thorough, and extensive evaluations of our quality, performance and patient safety outcomes (for on-label and off-label HBOT services), to ensure our continuous compliance with national, state and local accreditation, certification and regulatory requirements.

Our Vision

Above all else, our vision is for LyfeWell Hyperbarics to be the private center of choice for insurance providers, physicians, patients and employees by always keeping in mind that our core commitment is to the care and improvement of human life.

Meet the LyfeWell Team

Larry Butler
Founder of LyfeWell

Mr. Butler is a seasoned business professional with four decades of success in creating, launching and operating national enterprises within the competitive telecom sector. Mr. Butler’s unique ability to identify un-served niches from concept to profitability, personifies the meaning of the word “entrepreneur”.

With the advent of the Internet, along with the acceptance and usage of pre-paid credit cards (debit cards) and cell phones rapidly on the increase, and coupled with further deregulation of the telecommunications and industries, Mr. Butler recognized the landscape was shifting away from traditional methods of communicating and becoming more and more digital.

These sweeping changes led him to the conclusion that it was time to divest himself from the telecom “space” and that decision ultimately led him to pursue his passion for better health as he began a journey searching for a cutting edge and innovative way that would serve the public within the emerging marketplace of alternative healthcare.

In the fall of 2016 a unique alternative solution for better health care was birthed with the opening of the first LyfeWell clinic in Johns Creek, Georgia.

A resident of Suwanee, Georgia, he is married to his wife Paula for 50 years. They have two grown children and five grandchildren and when he’s not serving LyfeWell, Mr. Butler is an active member at First Redeemer Church, a member of the Non-Profit Board of Directors and loves to hunt and fish.
