Dr. Cotton and his Associates doctor are great, but his nursing staff leaves a lot to be desired. There is no communication when your child is taken out of the room for a test, he/she is left unattended during that test and the parents are unaware that the child is left unattended.

I have been seeing Dr. Cotton for years. He is very personable. The new Nurse Practitioner is very personable and professional as well. They do have some new staff changes which I expect at some point when seeing a pediatrician. There was a transition I think that had to do with getting the new staff trained fully. But I am still very pleased with the office and the staff. Everyone is very friendly.

Incredibly poor office staff. Waited over an hour before leaving when we were told they didn't know how long it would be before we would be seen.
