Verified Patient Reviews
I thought it went well until I called to schedule the procedure that the doctor recommended. A completely opposite treatment plan was given. I became extremely distrustful of the office's competency and decided not to return.
The waiting part was a problem. The doctor seems really nice and intelligent, although rushed through the appointment due to the high volume fo patience he was seeing.
The whole staff was wonderful! I had an appointment late in the day as a new patient so the office was empty at the time. I'm not sure if that accounts for all the friendly help I received but hey I'll take it! Dr. Botts was receptive and patient with me as I explained my situation and treated my diagnosis and next steps as a conversation rather than an order. In short, he treated me like an intelligent human being! This was the third specialist I have visited (insurance switches and one terrible doctor being the reason) so I was a bit exhausted with doctors offices but the entire experience was reinvigorating and I'm excited to move forward with Dr. Botts.
This physician was attentive and thorough, and listened to my elderly father very carefully. He was excellent and I would recommend him highly.
Wow! Who would believe that going to a doctor was a great experience! Well for me 2nd time round it was a pleasurable one because both the doctor nd staff made me feel welcome and special. I received excellent advice from the doctor who listened to me and treated me with respect and kindness!
A most pleasant efficient and effective experience!!! This is medicine at its best. Got an appointment with a top notch orthopedic surgeon Dr. Botts at the time and day I wanted. I was treated as if I really mattered! Zocdoc is superlative. Without Zocdoc, I was destined to see an orthopedic surgeon only in December for an emergency trauma knee situation. I truly thank the inventors of Zocdoc and the doctors signed up with them!!
Very personable,and explained everything
The registration as a new patient was seamless as I've already pre-populated forms via ZocDoc and they didn't have me fill any more paperwork besides seeing my insurance card and ID. That, in itself, was a pleasure and made the visit very easy. The nursing staff and doctor were also very efficient once I got in a room, which involved pulling some x-rays and administering a minor procedure. So all in all very simple and easy visit.
He is excellent and very caring.
I found Dr. Botts to be knowledgeable & informative about my condition (torn rotator cuff). I did NOT feel rushed, he explained the extent of my injury & discussed the options & why surgery was necessary. His staff was professional & nice. Overall, quite pleased with my consultation.
The receptionist was very nice. I did submit my forms before hand online with Zoc Doc, but she wasn't able to pull then up right then. But she explained that to me and had mr just fill out a couple of necessary papers. It was a quick appointment (everything under an hour) with x rays and a consultation with the doctor. He wasn't super thorough, but thorough enough. Asked me a lot of questions and explained to me what could be occurring. He also had more compassion than some other doctors I've seen. I felt taken care of and listened to.
Very positive and optimistic. Friendly and thorough. I kind of wish I had more time to speak with the doctor, rather than his nurses and xray technician, but that's sort of par for the course with doctors these days, so I don't fault him for it.
Very professional,asks and listens to patients
Very kind, made it easy
Very nice office, friendly office staff, attentive and pleasant doctor.
Awesome front desk staff! Awesome doctor! Took his time explaining everything. Found a fracture in my hand that two doctors said they needed an MRI to find. Just a great experience. Going for check up in 4 weeks and look forward to it! Highly recommended!
It was great. He's a cool doctor.... Easy to talk to... professional... no nonsense... and friendly...
I think Dr. Botts is a fantastic physician.... Personable, professional, kind, funny and focused.... I couldn't recommend him more! ;)
Staff very friendly and efficient. Dr. Botts answered my questions before the exam began.
I had a wonderful experience with my visit(s) with Dr. Jonathan Botts. The office staff was very friendly and accomodating. The office itself is extremely clean and pleasant. The doctor himself is everything one could ask for in a doctor--such a great bedside manner, very knowledgeable, very skilled at what he does, and really cares about your well being. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Botts!!!
