Patient Comments (3)
Palos Hills IL |
Dr. Cotton saw me through a major leg fracture and continues to help me along with my bad knees. He has always spent the time to talk me through all my concerns and is up on all the new procedures that are happening. Great personality, makes you feel very comfortable to talk to him about everything.

Saw the doctor once after waiting 45 minutes in the lobby. Ultimately need to have surgery, and was told to call back to schedule an appointment. Have made multiple attempts over several days to schedule the surgery, but they have one scheduler, Betty, and she does not return calls. During the day she works with the doctor's, and that's it. They have one scheduler, and she does not schedule appointments. Save yourself a lot of time and frustration, and go anywhere else.
in Evergreen Park, IL |
He diagnosed me with a stress fracture of the right foot over the phone after reviewing an MRI. He immediately recommended I come in for a permanent cast and use crutches for 6-8 weeks without first trying a walking brace/boot. I called him three times to discuss his recommendation. He never returned any of my calls. As a result, I sought medical advice elsewhere. I don't appreciate not having my phone calls returned. Apparently patient's concerns are not worth his precious time! NOT RECOMMENDED
Mr Roberts, I personally reached out to you and left my cell phone number in a voicemail and never heard back from you. I am sorry you felt mistreated. I try to ensure all of my patient's have opportunities to ask questions and I will try to improve our office's communication.
