Dr. Botolin performed emergency surgery on my husband for an obstructed bowel. She made sure I was kept informed throughout the operation, even having the nurse call my cell when it was obvious ithe procedure was going to take longer than expected. She is amazingly caring and compassionate, and her medical expertise and bedside manner is exceptional. Best medical care we've ever had!

I met Dr. Botolin in the E.R for emergency surgery. I was told that I had a tumor in my stomach. Her kind, professional, and sincere heart put at ease immediately! she explain what her job and goal was. After surgery her bed side manners were warming and encouraging, I am truly blessed to have had her in my corner when things were happening suddenly and unexpectedly! My family are very grateful.

I have had many doctors and surgeries in my life and I can sincerely say that Dr. Botolin is the best doctor I have ever had. She not only saved my life by doing emergency abdominal surgery but she also was the most caring and had the best post-op care I have had. You could really feel her concern for me and my family. She gave us her cell phone # when I was discharged and she was always readily accessible via text or a call when I had questions or needed anything. This was so refreshing.

I've never met a more caring, professional Dr. than this! Her bedside manner in beyond compare. She explained everything to me in an understandable way and eased any anxiety about my gallbladder surgery! After the surgery, she not only checked on me, but spent a few minutes and talked about other stuff. She's so caring I can't recommend enough! Thank you Dr. Botolin!!!

I was referred to Dr Botolin by my family physician to have my gallbladder removed. I was able to schedule an office visit the very next day. She explained my condition, treatment options, and the related risks. Surgery was scheduled within a week. My case presented some complications, but despite that recovery has been very smooth and relatively pain free. I would happily refer friends and family to Dr Botolin and the North Springs Surgical Associates.

Dr. Botolin is a fantastic doctor. I was having pain with my gallbladder and she walked me through ever step. She made me feel at ease through the whole process of having my gallbladder removed. She definitely cares about her patients and I would highly recommend Dr. Botolin.

Very Highly Recommend. Dr Botolin performed emergency surgery for a twisted intestine in my dad, when the surgery was complete, she explain everything to us and answered any questions. He was in the hospital for 9 days and Dr. Botolin checked on him everyday, some days twice a day, and on her days off. She would call us directly to give us an update if we were not at the hospital. Upon release, she made sure we had everything setup for his care at home. Best experience by far with a Dr.

I would highly recommend them.

I met Dr Batolin at saint Francis she was just so passionate and caring, explained to me very well the type of surgery I was getting done. Then after surgery her compassion and attitude were great. So greatful to have met her.

I did not meet Dr. Botolin until after she saved my life. I had suffered a ruptured appendix masked by the hysterectomy I'd had the week before. The 5cm abscess present in my abdominal cavity was only the beginning. I was lined with layers of infection, experienced septic shock, and simply should not have made it. I truly know that Daniela Botolin saved my life by being my trauma surgeon. She visited my hospital room multiple times and monitored my progress closely. Thank you, Dr. Botolin!
Monument, CO |
Dr Botolin was so awesome! First time we saw her, she advised us if condition didn't get better, to go to the ER. Later same day, we had to go to the ER; I called her just before we left and she said she'd meet us there! She is a first class surgeon, who really cares about her patients. Her follow through is excellent and great personality. I would highly recommend her.

3-2-17 In an unexpected twist, Dr. Botolin encountered the difficult task of removing a 1#, grapefruit size lipoma tumor from my back. It had burrowed under my shoulder blade and attached to the chest wall. She meticulously cut through 3 muscle layers to remove what she called, "The Beast," remarking it was the most difficult she has ever removed. She was very caring and I greatly appreciate her dedication to excellence in surgery. I heartily commend Dr Daniela. She's a blessing!

Dr. Botolin saved my husband's life. He needed emergency surgery and was in septic shock when we arrived in the E.R... She also successfully performed a secondary surgery for him as well. Her bedside manner, compassion, and positive attitude were incredibly comforting and helpful during such a scary time. There is no way to express how grateful we are to Dr. Botolin. My husband would likely not be here without her expertise.

Dr Botolin, saw me in the hospital with gallbladder pain and when I found out I was pregnant. She worked closely with my Ob Dr and figured out right time to take my gallbladder out, which was 15 weeks. She was so compassionate in my care and attentive. I was so nervous having surgery while pregnant and she calmed my nerves. This is how doctors should care for patients. I definitely recommend.

I met Dr. Botolin in the E.R for emergency surgery. Her kind, professional, and sincere heart put me and my family at ease immediately! Her explanation of what she was going to do was esquisitely laid out for us to understand what her job and goal was. After surgery her bed side manners were warming and encouraging. I am truly blessed to have had her in my corner when things were happening suddenly and unexpectedly! I will always refer any colleague, friend and family to her in need of surgery

Dr Batolin just happened to be the on-call surgeon at St Francis Medical Center on Jan 1, 2017 when I had to rush my wife to the Emergency Room for a life-threatening condition. She led the surgical team that saved my wife's life, but her care went much further than her amazing knowledge and expertise in the operating room. Her daily follow-up visits to her in the hospital were more than just check-the-box routine visits. She was direct, reassuring, and compassionate.
