Verified Patient Reviews
I was nervous about going to a new doctor but that changed quickly once I walked in the door. The staff and doctor was AMAZING! I would definitely recommend Dr. Cotton.
After trying with 4 other doctors, I finally found one who actually listens to my concerns and who treats my babies like they are actual humans. It sounds so simple...but it is pretty rare!
Very personalable, professional and great with engaging my son, made us both comfortable
The were very knowledgeable and showed great concern for Zaria.
The wait time is horrible, they book to many people to close together so my wait time was very long.
Great doctor...very thorough and seems to be genuinely interested in my child's future.
It's was great he answered all my questions
We just moved down to Georgia from New Jersey and it was hard looking for the best of the best. But we finally came across Dr. Cotton webpage and seen he was highly recommended. I'm glad we made him our children doctor he's the best and we love him.
It was good
My daughter has been going here for 3 years. I am very satisfied with the entire staff. They are very friendly and professional.
Dr. Cotton is great!!! Long wait time but a lot of kids are coming in for school check ups.
Very great with my son. I'm defiantly happy with him as his doctor!
Dr. Cotton is awesome!! The rest of the staff are as well.
It's a practise that has a potential for growth. I felt like it was a new establishment, still required some coordination experience amongst the ladies assisting in the office so the patient doesnt end up unattended nor assigned and just sitting in the consulting room for about 30mins. Second point is they dont consider the email notes in the bookings as a result they ended up seeing only one of my 2kids and was told to book the second for another day.
I love it very good service
The nurses and other employees were great with my daughter and how they handled business but dr. Cotton lacked in a few errors. He spoke with me once and never checked my baby for the issues at hand.,i will not go back there only because of the doctor but i will still continue to stick with zoc doc. You guys rock. Thank you
great. I would more than likely go back to dr. Byron cotton
