Dr. Cotton has the worst bedside manner of any doctor I have ever seen. She is crass and very unprofessional as a health provider. I'm not sure of her skill level, I didn't stay with her long enough to find out. I left after the second visit. I would not recommend her to anyone.

I wish I could give her zero stars. I am leaving a review on behalf of my 81-year-old mother who was a patient of Dr. Cotton’s until today. After making several attempts of getting a prescription changed after her insurance would no longer pay for it, my mother received a letter indicating Dr. Cotton would no longer be able to provide care for her. Why? Because she expected a call back after 3 weeks. She wouldn’t even call the pharmacy back. She has a horrible bed side manner and a nasty attitu

Dr. Cotton is the worst doctor I have ever been too. She has the worst bedside manner ever!! She does not tell you any results from test unless asked. She was more concerned with charging me a missed appointment charge (that I never signed to agree with). She is not concerned with the over all health of patients. Dr. Cotton needs to revisit some sensitivity classes. I even experienced her hollering at a lady during one appointment and had the lady escorted out by security for no reason. Aweful!!

The doctor's visit with me took about 10 minutes. She did not listen to me for the reason for my visit. She did not address results of lab work, ekg or x-rays. After she had the nurse to close the door of the room in which I was waiting to talk with her regarding lab work etc, she refused to talk with me. Two days later, her nurse called after I told the nurse I was going to seek medical attention elsewhere/
