Great Dr and the office staff are very friendly. He has helped me from many years of pain and several sinus surgeries by other Dr’s he finally fixed the problem. He is compassionate and a caring Dr.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kotlarz for several years and am deeply appreciative of his knowledge and care. He is professional and direct. He removed a large mass from my throat and a portion of my thyroid - and his work was so good that there is not even a visible scar-line on my neck. His staff was warm when checking on me and I found Dr. Kotlarz was kind and concerned when I had my followup appointments with him. I continue to see him and his staff and I highly recommend him.

Referred by my PCP. Neither doctor, medical assistant nor any office staff took any precautions whatsoever for COVID-19. No face masks or gloves anywhere. Medical assistant made rude comment about my wearing a face mask in front of patients and staff. Unmasked patients openly sneezing with fluid, then rubbing noses with hands. Doctor washed his hands with regular hand soap then put his bare hands on my neck and throat and used what appeared to be unprotected probes to look into my ears and up nose. Did not make eye contact entire visit. He requested follow up in office scope, but I will never return to this doctor. Dangerous, unhealthy environment, in my opinion. Hoping I do not get sick. Avoid this doctor until COVID-19 is gone.

Horrible doctor. Does not examine you before or after surgery. I woke up from sinus surgery in the worst pain of my life. Does not communicate or explain anything. Treated like cattle. His skills do not match his arrogance.

Allegedly to be referred to a radiologist for a radiological biopsy. Just cancelled follow up appoint. Still waiting on referral. Run from this doctor.

I saw the doctor for migraines due to sinus problems. This was my second sinus surgery. I had an MRI and CTscan prescribed while I tried a combination of prescription medications to begin treatment. After six months without much relief he performed sinus surgery which has relieved my symptoms for over three years now. His bedside manner is direct but he will spend the time he needs talking to you about your concerns and questions. Called after the surgery to check on me. Office is well staffed.

Dr kotlarz performed a sugery on my daughters nose to reduce her nose bleeds. We were told a very easy, typical procedure. Now due to the doctors fault she has a hole through her septum that can not be repaired. Please be aware this doctor will not take responsibility for his mistakes and blames his patients for any problems that may arise. He said she must be picking her nose. A second ent opinion adviseds that my 8 yr olds hole was caused by his incompetence it will cause future problems.

If another Dr hadn't saved my life I would be dead because of this man! The only reason I can not SUE him for Malpractice is because the other Dr fixed me.

Great Doctor. Very knowledgeable. Helpful staff. I'm amazed that office visits and surgery were always on schedule. I find this to be a rarity when seeing other Doctors.

I don't have an issue with the Doctor, but trying to get anything done is sick. They send out dictation over a week ago and I can't get any kind of treatment going. This is insane. Not my kind of medical help.

I have wanted to leave a review for quite some time now and finally getting around to it. I just wanted to say that this is a great doctor that is gentle kind and a 5 star doctor. I went to see him about 2 years ago for the first-time and was influenced by a few negative reviews and fear of my thyroid condition. My second appointment taught me not to pay attention to some negative stuff you read about! Dr. Kotlarz is awsome and I trust him completely. Claudia Blackwell

One of the most professional physicians I regularly visit. I very much appreciate his direct approach to health care. If you are looking for a chatty friend to talk a bout a recent vacation .... this may not be your guy. He asks very direct questions, and expects very direct answers about the condition you made the appointment for. This results in shorter office visits and better care. I wish more of my doctors took his approach.
