Patient Reviews (2)
Calumet City, IL |
Made a appointment with Dr. Cotsmires office and waited over a month for the appointment. Received a automated call regarding the appointment the weekend before the scheduled date. Arrived at the doctors office only to be told the automated system canceled my appointment and that I would have to reschedule for a future date. Dr. Cotsmire was told about my situation by a nurse and he did not care to take me sooner. Left a bad impression about the doc. Doesn't seem to care about patients needs
New York, NY |
Staff was very pleasant and efficient. Doctor was friendly, helpful, informative; didn't rush consultation, answered all my questions. No wow factor, but he seemed knowledgable and sincere.
