I was referred to this physician for a condition that he treats. I was only seen by his assistant and I was offered no options for treatment of my injury. I wasted a co-pay, a morning and my insurance company paid the rest. I have had the same experience with almost every doctor I have seen in the Texas Health group. I know I have been blackballed from this group by a doctor who has a serious issue with patients who ask to switch doctors within the group.

Dr. Bothwell recently operated on my son's knee and we experienced nothing but professionalism, candor, caring, and consideration. Still unknown to Dr. Bothwell, I attended medical school and knew a good bit about the details of my son's condition. His explanations, professional suggestions, and performance were spot on! My son is still recovering and Dr. Bothwell has been very instrumental in the fact that he is ahead of schedule. Dr. Bothwell has my highest regards and recommendations!

Dr. Bothwell did an excellent job of repairing my my daughters' ACL. This positive experience lead me to seek his expertise again when I ruptured my Achilles tendon. Dr. Bothwell and his entire staff are very professional and organized, yet also very friendly, informative, and caring. After surgery, do not hesitate to go to one of their other locations. Bonnie and the staff in Keller were also very thorough and nice.

I had two appointments in a span of 5 years and an MRI after the recent visit. I was seen only by Physician Assistants and never even met Dr. Bothwell. I received my MRI results from a Medical Assistant who didn't give more than a cursory summary and was told I was being referred to another surgeon. After complaining I wanted to speak to the Dr. or the PA I got more information from the PA. I wanted some medical advice from Dr. Bothwell but got none.

I’m sure Dr. Bothwell does an excellent job, however his scheduler does not. I called and asked if they would accept a workman’s comp case. She told me she would speak with the doctor and get back to me. I waited 2 days for a response and never heard anything. I’ve called several more times only to have my calls appear to be screened. I left 2 messages and never heard back.

Dr. Bothwell is an excellent surgeon. He did extensive surgery on my shoulder and one year later, I can say that I am as good as new. My recovery trajectory was just as he described it would be. He is a good communicator. His office is organized and efficient. My experience was excellent and I highly recommend Dr. Bothwell.

Dr. Bothwell performed knee surgery on my son for a torn MPFL in his knee and then performed reconstructive surgery on my shoulder three weeks later. The professionalism from him and his staff are the best I have ever received from a doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Bothwell and would say that he is one of the best (if not the best) surgeon in not just the DFW area, but in Texas. Very caring doctor that takes time out of his busy schedule to make each visit a personal able experience.

Dr. Bothwell made me a man again, after I tore me pec. He was no nonsense in regards to my injury and treatment, etc., which is exactly what someone hardheaded like me needs. I would see him again in a heartbeat.

He is a caring doctor. He explains everything in detail. He does not rush and takes his time to ensure we understand exactly what is going on. When a Surgeon takes the time to ensure his patients understand in detail what is happening. I know he takes his time in the surgery room. This allowed me to trust him and know that he will complete the surgery with detail and perfection.
