I've always had great experience at sacred heart, I was very disappointed in this Dr. He tried telling me my daughter needed tonsil/adenoid removal with a vague explanation. Got frustrated when I asked questions and rushed me. I got a 2nd opinion and her tonsils are fine. So for more money and no actual medical reason he was willing to do surgery on my child.

I love the practice. Two of my children are patients of Dr Cottichia. However the campus isn’t actually smoke free and my daughter is a pulmonary patient. Her health is jeopardized every time we come here. If only they enforced the non smoking campus policy.

I have been calling for 3 days to set up an appointment and have left several voice messages after being on hold for 20 minutes each time. "Messages received during business hours by our staff are addressed the same business day". If these idiots are too incompetent to answer the phone or return calls I have no confidence that they will be able to handle the billing.

I actually went to this doctor based on the reviews. I'm deeply disappointed. He is very condescending and always make you feel rushed. Any question you ask he will answer sarcastically like you are so stupid for asking. I hate going to his appointments. He charges tons of money and make you come frequently. It feels like a business. Always overbooked and waiting time can be over 30 minutes. Stay away if you want to be treated with respect. Very arrogant doctor.
