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.
in Venus, TX |
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.
in Fort Worth, TX |
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.
