Dr Cottongham is kind & proficient. Unfortunately, Mary C. and Shannon (office staff) are both extremely rude & try to force you into seeing a Nurse Practitioner instead of the doctor. They cancelled a long standing appt I had with Dr. Cottongham. I reached them 3 days later- the excuse they gave was "We had to rearrange things..." No appt w/ the Dr. Cottingham for 2 more weeks. Doubtful I can return to see Dr. Cottongham since his employees cancel at whim. I'm sad his employees are so awful.

Extremely rude office staff and assistants. Wait time is unreal. Cottingham does not have a consistent bed manner. One day he acts like the nicest guy, the next visit he turned into a condescending awful person that actually mocked me during a procedure. I could not believe it. He never apologized for being late either. His assistant is extremely impolite. I had enough of this and found a practice where the doctor is on time, is not making fun if his patients, and the staff are courteous.

Dr. Cottingham has given me epidural injections at least 3 times. He is pleasant to work with and I liked him and the staff at Baylor very much. His office staff, however, is very rude! Whenever I have dealt with them, they don't listen, they talk over you on the telephone, and do anything to get rid of you as quick as possible and transfer you to someone's voicemail. Voicemails are not returned in a prompt manner. I wish I had Dr. C's email, so he could read this firsthand.

IF you get to see Dr. Cottingham, you will be so pleased with him overall! This Dr. is kind and he listens. I've been going to him over 10 years and never had a complaint against him. He is a lovely professional man. His office mgr. is the opposite...unprofessional and a bully, (to patients and staff) to say the least. Another problem is that you hardly ever get to see him, unless you are having a procedure or surgery. I see him about once a year now. He is just too busy to see his patients.
