I don't reccomend him to anyone that needs someone that is sensitive. I was not impressed at all with his compassion with someone that needs help. And that is saying it kindly. The last conversation I had with him he said " I don't need to take your abuse." And that is absolutely not the type of person I am. Just a person that needs help with post partum.

My experience with Dr. Bot has been extremely good. He cares about what is going on in my life. He is always on time. He gives me his full attention and he includes me in decisions in my treatment. I have been under his care now for several years. If it weren't for Dr. Bot, I wouldn't be here today. He is the best! Thank you Dr. Bot for everything you have done and do for me. ~Patty~

Dr. Bot has been my care provider for a couple of years now. From my experience, he uses a medical forensic approach that is able to provide the gap between qualitative values and convert them to a quantitative form. In doing so he's been able to specifically diagnose, for me, what would be the best treatment given the results. Follow up visits are required to maintain/supervise progress and see where adjustments need to be made. Thank you Dr. Bot!

Good solid doctor. I read an earlier evaluation that said the person did not like Dr Bot because he did not allow extra xanax during a hard time. I'm not sure why that would be because when I was going through a particularly difficult time (a death, school work) I found the opposite to be true. It is true that Dr. Bot is very concerned about the use or potential overuse of medications like xanax. It is really addicting. I have been on and I understand his caution. I appreciate his concern.

Dr. Bot is great doctor and I would highly recommend him to friends, family etc.... Dr. Bot is patient, caring, and extremely knowledgable. He returns my calls and when in an tough time. He has worked me in. He is most kind. Thank you Dr. Bot

A bit impersonal and emotionally not so present. When things got tough with my anxiety due to a number of big life challenges & changes, he was very unhelpful, even rude, refusing to temporarily up my dosage slightly or even really listen to my struggles. He seemed much more concerned w/ his reputation & standing about the Xanax, than me. I get that dr has to be very careful w/ Xanax, but as a patient, I felt dismissed and even chastised for even requesting the help. Not there when needed most!

We appreciate feedback from patients and their family.  While we strive for, and it is one of our primary goals to have 100% patient satisfaction, we recognize that there are times that we may fall short or it is simply not a "right fit" between provider and patient.  If there is a concern or dissatisfaction, it is our hope that you will place a call to our office and discuss this with the provider or our quality control operator, Melissa, at our main number.  We will utilize this feedback to improve future patient experiences or make any necessary changes in our practices.   We also ask that if there is a negative review that you consider all of the circumstances of the review.  For example, forensic work frequently angers someone and it is not uncommon for those who may be unhappy with a particular legal outcome to write a negative critique.  This rarely happens, but it has happened in the past.
