Dr. Shotwell took over from my former pulmonologist, who retired. She was professional and friendly. She offered some excellent advice on handling my COPD after I move to Mexico, and prescribed an additional drug that is helping me breathe better. Based on my experience with her, I like and respect her.

I have to say that I really love Dr. Shotwell. Unlike most doctors, she spends as much time in the exam room to go over all details and also takes the time to listen to you. I honestly believe that I would not be alive today with Dr. Shotwell's extremely good care.

my mother was a patient of Dr. Shotwell and one of her office partner. Between the two of them they were never in the office, never return follow up result calls. I had to constantly call the office for results and no one ever call. They took so long in their response on lab work and getting an appointment, i decided to take my mother to another hospital all together, by that time her disease was in worst stages and this office still took their time in sending over her records. my mom passed

I made an appointment on November 19th 2015 to see Dr. Shotwell. Instead of seeing her I saw her nurse as she was not there. Dr. Shotwell called my two days later and was suppose to get my ct scan from a prior surgery to compare with a new ct scan. SHE NEVER DID ANYTHING. After repeated phone calls to her office it is now February 12th and absolutely no contact from her at all. I have never been treated so poorly from a doctor in my life.
