Dr Cotter and his staff is careing about their patients. They also care about the work they do! It has to be perfect or they want be happy! They listen to you and they don't just jump into things without explaining to you what they will do!I went through something That scared me very much but after talking to them I got comfortable fast. Thank you Dr Cotter and Gina for being so careing! I could not have asked for a better Dr and Nurse!

Dr. Cotter' gentle approach made me feel immediately at ease. At our first consultation, he offered several different options available for my needs & helped me fully understand the pros and cons of each. He takes his time at every visit I've had since & every time I have known I was well taken care of, listened to and informed! I've always come away feeling like I was their only patient~or at least very special! He is a kind, empathetic, charismatic, optimistic, very skilled surgeon.
