Patient Comments (2)
Tallahassee, FL |
The doctor is arrogant, has no bed-side manner and therefore gets the lowest rating from me. He does not consider the needs of the patient - just the best needs of himself!

I went to Dr Cottrell with severe cramps about two years ago. The first visit he didn't even examine me and concluded I had IBS. He told me to take fiber and see if that helped. The cramps continued and I returned to his office, where he examined me only after I demanded it. He provided such little guidance all I could do was bear the pain for the many years that followed. Only after going to a more competent doctor did I get diagnosed with a complicated appendicitis. All it took was one exam.
