I have had Dr. Cottrill as my gastroenterologist for about 6 years. My wife also sees him. He is a kind, very experienced and capable doctor who takes time and answers all questions. His ability in managing health needs is excellent and is very highly experienced in doing the procedures he deems necessary. From our multiple appointments and procedures with Dr. Cottrill we have never found him to be short tempered, or unwilling to do his best to resolve health concerns. I highly recommend him.

I was referred to him for a colonoscopy and at this point have just seen him for a consult. He spent more than enough time with me discussing his approach to the procedure and why I need to have a colonoscopy. He answered all of my questions and I believe he will do a through examination. He is a professional, he is the expert and I am coming to him for his expert opinion. His summary analysis of my colonoscopy is what I am expecting.

I would highly recommend Dr. Cottrill. I was referred to him for a colonoscopy and scope after I had some concerns and had not been to a doctor in many years. He was so kind when I met with him at his office and also when I went for the procedures. I agree with another review that said his bedside manner is the BEST! I had so much anxiety about having these procedures, but he was so nice and explained everything so clearly. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
in Wagoner, OK |
Dr. Cottrill is very knowledgeable, shows compassion and concern for his patients, and takes time to explain procedures and answer questions. I feel confident that he is working to help me and to resolve my problems.
in Broken Arrow, OK |
My experience was just the opposite of the review I just read. I found Dt. Cottrill to be very thorough and caring. I was VERY satisfied.
in Tulsa, Ok |
Arrogant. Doesn't allow questions. Snapped at me. A physician who doesn't like people, doesn't want to be bothered. Zero communication skills. Worst bedside manner ever. Don't waste your time. Same experience twice. There won't be a third.
