Dr. Cotton spent time with me before and after a thorough exam, used common-sense methodology, and did not put me through unnecessary tests. This was a relief given that I've a) already undergone enough and b) have Medicare for insurance. I had to laugh when he lifted my purse and noted that my solution might begin (and end?) there. Suffice it to say, I'll be carrying a lighter load in the foreseeable future. Thanks to Dr. Cotton & his staff, I am now capable of resolving this particular burden.

He was absolutely awful. He did not let me speak one word of what happened to me, did not perform a single test on me, and then got very pushy and cocky, trying to put me on medicine for something I didn't need. I was supposed to see Dr. Franco and I got stuck with this joke of person. Someone revoke his license, he ruined my life. I will never go back to him and beg everyone to never go to him unless you want him to put false information on your medical record.
